Lorraine was more than a colleague to me. She was a true friend. We worked together for many years and shared many interests. Lorraine would give anyone her time and help without asking for a thing in return. She will be remembered by all as truly selfless and giving. Condolences to her children and extended family.

Jim, Kathy, Jon, & families, My sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother, Lorraine, and that God wrap His loving arms around you and give you peace! Lorraine was the kindest and most sympathetic cousin anyone could wish to have in their family! You will be in my thoughts and prayers. We had many good times growing up together living near each other and seeing each other most days. We attended the same schools, however I was older. We always laughed about me taking her to church when she was small and singing, "Yippity do da, yippity Yay because she didn't understand Slovak.as everyone else sang. Closing, I loved her like a sister. Memory Eternal! Vicnaja Pomjat! MaryAnn Bilyak Nagy

I knew Lorraine for many years as we were both elementary librarians. I was at Iddings and she was at Miller school. Lorraine was one of the most cheerful and helpful persons I had the pleasure to know. She loved her job and it showed. She will be missed.

Our prayers are with the family, this is her 1st cousin Joan Kadelak Brown, Lorraine will truly be missed. I have found memories when we were growing up. We had our first communion together and went to the same church. Lorraine was a very happy person and was always friendly to everyone she was with. I was truly blessed to have her as a cousin, She will be in my heart forever. Memory Eternal, May her soul rest in peace. Love and God Bless, Joan Kadelak Brown.
