Just found out about Lorrain's passing. I worked with Lorrain at Spaulding School for the EIsenhower Coop. She was so full of life and as a staff we all had a special connection. My deepest sympathy to the family. What a loss.

Lorrain was a riot! At the same time she was a great teacher who truly had the student's best interest at heart. She could reach kids and gain their trust where many others had tried to no avail. She is a legend at Braun and I'm glad to have known her. So sad that her life was cut way too short, my thoughts and prayers are with her family and close friends, may you find comfort in remembering her spirit.

I worked with Lorraine at SW Coop, she had such a great sense of humor and that smile. Her smile was warm and mischievous . Whenever she had problems with her computer, she would ask me to fix it, but don't change the password! We had some great lunches with her too. My prayers are with you. She was a ray of sunshine. RIP Lorrain

I had the pleasure of knowing Lorrain while working with her at Braun. She made me feel so welcome and always kept my head up. She was always a person I would count on for advice. She will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

Ms. Lorrain Marie and I were friends for twenty-five years. We met while working at Victor's Restaurant in Palos Heights. She told me once that she knew we could become friends after she heard me singing a Door's tune. She loved me for being me, and I loved her for that. But then, she sure was a damn good cook, too! ;)

Ms. Lorrain Marie was my friend for the past twenty-five years. We met as co-workers at Victors Restaurant in Palos Heights. She told me once that she knew we could be good friends after she heard me singing a Door's tune. She loved me in spite of me. She could do that, and I loved her for it. But, then she was a damn good cook, too! ;)

Dear Sue, John and family,
I am so sorry about your Mom passing. She is out of pain right now and I know that does not help because you will always have more one thing to say or do with her. Please take care of yourselves and most of all be proud of how you handled everything to the best of your ability.

Grief is a hard emotion to accept but you will always have special memories that will pop up from time to time that you can cherish. My memory will be the last time I saw Lorraine at our mini high school reunion. We had so many good laughs catching up on our lives after 35 years.
My continued prayers for you and your family at this time of loss.
