Lorraine E. Battistini, 91, passed away on March 21, 2012. She was born in Oakland, CA, to Florence Cunha Conde and John Conde. She met Raymond A. Battistini in South Lake Tahoe at the Bijou Beach and Lodge and they were later married on May 8, 1942, in Reno, Nevada. Lorraine lived in Oakland with relatives while her husband was off to war and shortly after his return in 1945 they moved to San Leandro where they made their home.
