Lorraine (Getman) Jankowski Obituary
Lorraine Jankowski (nee Getman), age 81, of Macedonia died May 18, 2013 after a sudden illness.

Lorraine was a devoted wife of 55 years to Dr. Norman Jankowski. Together, they enjoyed a lifetime of happiness and unwavering loved based on their shared commitment to their faith, compassion to family, friends and those in the community. She was blessed with a quick, wry sense of humor that her family thoroughly enjoyed and inherited. Lorraine was a loving mother to her three children, Lisa (Stephen) Kilway (Stow), Liane (Brian) Suhey (Boardman) and David (Terri) Jankowski (Avon Lake). With her children, Lorraine led by example and nurtured a deep commitment to God, to treating others with love and compassion and the importance of a strong, loving family. She welcomed her children's spouses into the family and adopted them as her own. Lorraine's happiest moments were shared with her entire family surrounding her, which often included late, laughter-filled nights gathered around the kitchen table talking and playing games or sitting on the front porch with family and friends at her beloved home at Chatauqua Lake. Perhaps her most cherished moments were spent with her six grandchildren, Megan Kilway (Stow), Chelsea Kilway (Cuyahoga Falls), Caitlyn Suhey (Pittsburgh), Joshua Suhey (Boardman), Adam Jankowski (Avon Lake) and Emma Jankowski (Avon Lake). Lorraine was "Grammie" to them and she built a unique, individual relationship with each child. They always knew her love was unconditional and her arms were the ones they ran into when they needed comfort and love. Grammie was without a doubt their most ardent cheerleader.
