Lorraine had a joyful sense of humor that she carried all the way to the very end. She was always so thankful, and grateful for the many blessings she had. She was a beautiful and gracious woman who touched so many lives. She was a mother to many, not just her own children. She was loved by so many and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. We were so blessed to have her in our lives.
Lorraine's family would like to thank everyone for all the love and support they have given and continue to give. Lorraine was so thankful to see so many of you in such a short time as the end drew near. At the very end, she reminisced of all her great memories, joked with and enjoyed the love of all.
