    Lorraine and Tony were neighbors in Downingtown in the late 60s and early 70s.
    I have many happy memories of playing cards and laughing with Lorraine. She was so much fun and there was never a dull moment when we got together. I will really miss seeing her. Our deepest condolences to Tony, Billy and Michelle.

  2. I worked with Lorrie for many years at Shady Maple Smorgasbord. Her sweet and kind personality made many days happy ones. Always a smile through the good and bad! She will be surely missed and will never be forgotten!
    My deepest sympathy to all her children!
