Lorraine Boyce Smith Obituary
LORRAINE BOYCE SMITH Age 86, entered eternal life on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013 at home in Corona, CA. Born in Framington, MA 11/22/26, the only child of Gorden and Josephine Boyce, she graduated from high school in Quincy, MA then headed to California where she began her 35 year Civil Service career with the Air Force. In retirement Lorraine was married to Jack D. Smith and made her home for 25 years in Rialto, California. The 7 grown children of Jack and his first wife Valerie (deceased) gave her numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren for which she became Grandma 'Rain and Gigi'.

She is survived by 4 stepchildren: Valerie Smith of Bristol, TN; Daniel Smith of Wasilla, AK; Bernadette Fish of Corona, CA; Christina Sherman of Chugiak, AK; 13 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Lorraine and Jack loved to entertain friends, traveled across America and Europe but their fondest memory was a trip to the Holy Land in 1983 with Pastor Robb Zinn of Immanuel Baptist Church, where she was a member for over 30 years. Lorraine prized her classic T-Bird and enjoyed the friendships she made in the T-Bird Club. Many of Jack and Lorraine's travels included surprise visits to the children and grandchildren. She was an excellent seamstress and enjoyed making crafts and clothes for those she loved. The family would like to thank the staff at Corona Regional Hospital, Palm Terrace Rehab Center, Home Instead Senior Care and Corona Hospice for the care, love, respect and compassion Lorraine received in the last 6 months.
