    It was always a pleasure to sit and chat with Lorraine “at the lake” or “in the back yard” . She was a wonderful lady who had a kind and gentle spirit. She also baked the best rhubarb bars in the country !
    It was a privilege and a blessing that she was in our lives, and we are all better off for having known her.
    We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to her family.

    Lorraine and I traveled to a few Catholic Aide Conventions together and she was a lot of fun. I also visited her at her home. Meeting you at Clancy’s or at your VFW Auxiliary meetings when I would come and do an Inspection they call them Official Visits now and on those times you let me park my motorcycle in your garage area. You were also active at the funeral luncheons and we always visited a bit. Now I know why you were on my mind lately. Until we meet again, Lorraine, R. I. P. My friend.
