I remember her from Memorial Baptist Church, she was a wonderful quiet lady. I will miss sharing time with her.

I dearly loved Lorraine. I remember great times when we all got together with family. She helped me when my twins were born, babysitting and helping me to the doctor. I remember her love for pretty dolls. Our boys played together. I will miss her

Aunt Lorraine was always a calming influence on everyone around her, a true Proverbs 31 woman and a great boy-mom as we cousins all grew up together.
