Lorraine graduated from St. Scholastica High School and received her Bachelor of Philosophy from De Paul University. Lorraine worked as a secretary/bookkeeper in Illinois for many years. She was preceded in death by her dear husband, Irving Hankins, a WWII Army veteran. After her husband died and she retired, she moved to Sun City, California to be with her family.

She was very active in her Church, ministering in many ways. She was instrumental in starting the Catechetical program at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in Sun City. She was a loyal friend and confidant with a great sense of humor and was well known for her practical "Yankee Ingenuity". She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
