We as a family mourn the loss of Granny, Mother, Friend, and Wife. From the time she was a young girl to her very last mortal breath, she was all in for family. She had simple taste, and the currency she pursued was people. She found value in providing for her loved ones. She found value in being a shoulder to cry on. She found value in putting you first, even if it put her in a bind. She loved without end, as if Jesus wrote a handbook on how to treat your flock, and handed it directly to her. She was a woman who never focused on what she did not have, rather celebrated all that she did. She was blessed. In her passing, Earth lost a lovely soul, but Heaven gained a deserving new citizen. We will miss her now and forever.
Loraine is survived by her loving husband, Kenneth Wills, Sr.; children, Nancy (David) Barnes, Ann (Bill) Stuart, Judy (Tom) Best, Kenny (Diane) Wills, Mike Wills, Randy (Gwen) Wills, John (April) Wills, Tiffany Wills and Shannon Lane; 22 grandchildren; 12 great- grandchildren and sisters, Rose, Pearl, Ruby and Mary. In addition to her parents, Roland and Mable Wagoner, Loraine was preceded in death by her daughter, Alice Lane, and brothers, David, Walter, Charlie and Shelby Wagoner.
The family will receive guests Monday, July 7, 2014, from 3 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Newcomer Funeral Home - SW Chapel, 4752 Heatherdowns Blvd., (419-381-1900). Funeral Services will begin Tuesday, July 8, 2014, at 10 a.m. in the funeral home.
The family would like to thank Hospice of Northwest Ohio for their care and support. A very special thank you to Karen for helping us as a family get through our mother's final journey.
