Lorraine’s first love was spending time with friends and family whom she cherished. Giving to those around her was a constant and came naturally. While her ability to “light up a room” at any and all occasions will forever be remembered. She was never idle (into her 90’s) an avid reader who also enjoyed bowling leagues, card games, Caribbean cruises, the beach, time at “The Cottage” and a really good scotch! She was accomplished at sewing, knitting, ceramics, and caring for her many precious plants.
