Lorraine was first, a devoted wife, mother and grandmother to her family. She held various jobs while her children were younger including being a proud business owner of her own restaurant, The Queens Kitchen in Marlborough.
At a very young age, Lorraine appreciated music and was a self -taught guitar player in which she won a local music competition and was heard on the local radio station as the winner. Lorraine loved her “Sweets” a day never started properly until she satisfied her sweet tooth even before her coffee!! Later in life she enjoyed arts, crafts, dancing, Keno and traveling with her family and of course never missed an opportunity to go to Foxwoods! She just loved life… She will be deeply missed, but will remain cherished to those she knew and loved.
