Darlene and Nicole, My condolences to you and family. Lorraine was truly one of the nicest people anyone could want to meet on this journey called life. She will always be a "standout" person. She's always been a major part of Linwood, to me. Of late, I truly enjoyed seeing and chatting with her at our Linwood Koffee Klatsch monthly meetings at Dunkin. Even "down" things were dealt with an "up" attitude always. So glad Gary invited her to the gathering at New England Steak house a couple years ago. I know she really enjoyed herself. Her presence will be missed...but...her presence will stay with us.

I worked with Lorraine for 7 years at the Westboro Court House where I was able to enjoy her laughter...her wonderful, kind and loving personality. It was such a pleasure to be around her, always happy, always complimentary and always helpful. You're amongst the angels now Lorraine. You will be missed. Godspeed.

I have known Lorraine all my life growing up in Linwood, she worked with my dad for Years at the "Shop" and even attended some of my youth Little League games. She was an active member of our church and was always willing and able to help out. She ALWAYS called me Alan, my older brothers name and I in turn would call her Alice, she would always giggle and say I mean Paul, she will be missed.

I had the honor of working with Lorraine for many years at the WDC. Her laugh was infectious. She was a sweet loving woman who made work a great place to be. I have so many memories of the good times we had.
Rest in Peace my friend.

I had the greatest opportunity to work with Lorraine for many years at Westboro District Court. Everyday it was a joy to see Lorraine, she had such an electricfying laugh, not one day without a smile on her face. I looked forward to see her big costume rings that she wore everyday especially the big daisy ring. Anytime there was a party she was the first one on the dance floor, oh boy she loved to dance. Lorraine was the best & will be missed by all that knew her, my great friend rest in peace.

Dear Family, We have known and loved Lorraine for 26 years since we joined the Good Shepherd Parish. Lorraine and all the other 'girls' took pride in watching our two sons grow through the Church. She, and others, urged Peggy and I to get involved with the parish and we jumped in. Lorraine always had a big smile and grin for us every single time we encountered her at various Church functions. I miss her already. However, I'm sure that she's still smiling and grinning in the presence of Our Lord.

We lost the sweetest and kindest lady anyone could ever meet. She was dearly loved by all her neighbors surrounding her. Always had a smile and a hello that she came across. She always had love in her heart. She will be deeply missed. Condolences to the family.
