Patty, Suzy and Warren, please accept my sincere condolences. Your mom was such a wonderful gift to us all. I remember Lorraine as my mom's best friend. She and my mother had been friends since they were kids. My memories of them are of two women with young children sharing stories and laughing with one another as they wrangled kids to keep them out of mischief. Happy times. Mom, Lorraine and Warren are all together again.
Fondest Regards. Donna

A beautiful light has left this Earth. My childhood visits to the farm have left me with a lifetime of fond and loving ❤ memories. God blessed us all with her engaging laughter and quick wit.
Rest in peace sweet Lorraine

Rich and I are sorry to hear the news. We always enjoyed her visits and/or her calls. She always made us laugh, and sometimes scratch our heads, at the "bits of wisdom" that would come out of her mouth!!! She was a good neighbor and will be missed in the neighborhood.
You have our sympathy, Rich & Judy Heck
