Born on Christmas Day 1924, daughter of the late Martin J. and Stella Redal Wagner, Lorraine was a devoted Roman Catholic who was a member of St. Patrick's Parish, Scranton.

Her family would like to thank all of the caring doctors and nurses who took such great care of Lorraine.

A son, Wallace Cook Jr.; a granddaughter, Kimberly Smith; sisters, Jean Sulz, Ruth Tomasofsky, Mercedes Lowe, Mary Zembik, Helen Weber, Eleanor Kiznoski and Anna Connelly; and a brother, Al Wagner, also preceded her in death.
