    Very sad news. Lorraine was a classmate of mine at St. Mary’s for 12 years. (1932-1944). She was the sweetest, kindest, and fun-loving person I knew. Thank you for the memories, sweet Lorraine.

    My heart breaks to hear the news that Lorraine has left us. Lorraine was my godmother, and it saddens me deeply that as I got older and moved away from Gaylord that I wasn’t able to keep in touch with her the way that I had always intended to. I will always keep close to my heart all the memories I have of the time that I spent with her and Monique while I was growing up. May you rest peacefully in heaven.
