Lorraine loved being a wife and mom. She was a great baker whose donuts and cinnamon rolls could be smelled from blocks away. She was fond of sewing as she made most of Barb’s dance costumes and rarely missed a game or school event of any of her children. It gave her great joy to volunteer at the Hudson Medical Center in dietary and flower arrangements. Moreover, She enjoyed entertaining and decorating the house for festive celebrations. She treasured her home church and singing in the Presbyterian choir for nearly thirty years.
