Lorraine was a volunteer for both the Arnot Ogden Medical Center and Meals on Wheels. She was a long time active member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Elmira. For many years Lorraine had a group of friends who enjoyed jogging together and later in life, walking. In summer months they would meet on Sunday's at Harris Hill for a lively game of putt-putt. The best ever gramma, she always enjoyed participating in activities with her grandchildren. She was well known to her Elmira grandchildren's friends, who would call her "grammie". Anyone who visited Lorraine would always be greeted with a warm smile and a variety of fresh baked cookies. Lorraine will be remembered with love and greatly missed by all who knew her.
