When young, Lorraine loved, family gatherings, square dancing and any other dancing. She protected her children like a Momma grizzly. As time passed, she enjoyed crossword puzzles and playing cards. Her care givers thought she was a card shark at Rummy. She was a lifetime member of the American Legion Post #6 Auxiliary.
A Mass of Christian Burial for Lorraine will be held at 10:30 AM on Thursday July 18, 2019 at St. Peters Catholic Church. Friends and family will gather to share memories from 9:30 - 10:15 AM before the Mass in the St. Faustina Room of the church. Burial will be in the Guardian Angel Cemetery.
She spoke her mind and let you know where you stood with her. She is dancing with Lenny now.
Lorraine's family wishes to thank Heartland Hospice and Synergy Home Care for their years of care for all the great care they provided Mom.
