We met Lorraine when she lived across the hall from our dear friend Laverne Brys when they resided in assisted living at the Villa. She and Laverne had breakfast together every morning. Lorraine was a dear soul who took Laverne under her wing and helped her use the elevator to go down to the dining room for meals along with making Laverne feel welcome. Lorraine was always so friendly. May she now rest in peace.
