Garland, Lorraine E
Dec 9, 1929 - Dec 28, 2018
Lorraine Erskine Garland, 89, of Jamestown, RI and Bradenton, FL, died peacefully with her family present on December 28, 2018 in Medway, MA.
She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on December 9, 1929, the daughter of Madeleine Ellis and Frank Erskine. Lorraine spent her childhood in Massachusetts, Maine and Virginia with her mother and stepfather, Alan D. Kinsley. Lorraine raised her children in Princeton, NJ. Later in life, she spent winters in Sarasota, FL and summers in Jamestown, RI.
Lorraine was a graduate of Dana Hall School in Wellesley, MA. She studied Landscape Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. She actively participated in local government and provided leadership to local associations including the Parent Teacher Association and fundraiser for the Princeton hospital. Lorraine was also a productive real estate agent in New Jersey's Morris and Mercer counties.
Lorraine lived her life surrounded by many beloved four-legged companions. She was a founding member of the Irish Wolfhound Association of the Delaware Valley. She was an equestrian and able coachwoman in her younger years, and supporter and frequent guest at polo matches in Newport, RI and Sarasota, FL. Her final companion was Ares, a "rescue" poodle, who never left her side.
Lorraine is survived by her former husband Philip Lincoln Garland, Jr., of Englewood, FL and Chatham, MA, and her children, Thomas Alan Garland, Katherine Garland Presswood, and Elizabeth Garland Deardorff. She also leaves behind three beloved grandchildren, Taylor, Whitney, and Sam. Finally, she will be missed by five great-grandchildren, Winston, Madeleine, Aiden, Fiona, and Ethan.
In lieu of flowers, donations will be welcome to the memory of Lorraine Garland to the Florida Poodle Rescue, P.O. Box 7336, St. Petersburg, FL 33734 or Milford Regional Healthcare Foundation, 14 Prospect St., Milford, MA 01757.
