I met Lorraine in 1964, as Michael's mother. Later she worked at the Grammar School/Aldrich School in the office. She had a sharp mind and a big heart.

I am sorry for your loss but relieved that she's free.

My God welcome her.

Dear Marie, Margie and family: On behalf of my brothers, Frank, Dick, and Mike, I am sending you all condolences on the loss of your mother. Lorraine always sent me a Christmas card and although we hadn't met or talked in years, I sent her one as well and appreciated the thoughtfulness on her part. Please know that all of you, and Marty, are in our thoughts and prayers at this time.Take good care.
Fondly, Anne

Please accept my deepest sympathy in the death of Aunt Lorraine. I will never forget her beautiful smile whenever we met. A trip to the library was not complete unless you had a chat with her. She will be greatly missed and I know she is resting in peace and love.
Sincerely,
Carolyn and Brent

Lorraine volunteered at Whitinsville Christian School lunch program one year, and I had the joy of working with her. She was a sweetheart in every sense of the word. I am so sorry for your loss.
