Lorraine enjoyed cooking, baking, quilting, sewing, gardening, canning and entertaining. She was famous for her homemade ice cream and letting the children lick the dasher. It became a family tradition.

Lorraine’s family would like to thank the staff of the WSLC for the kindness and love that was shown to Lorraine during the years she spent there. Due to the current pandemic, the family has chosen to have a private family celebration of Lorraine’s life!!!!
