Todd and Jeff, Please know my thoughts and prayers are with both of you now. I realize how difficult it is saying our Good-Byes to a parent. Try to remember all the wonderful memories you share growing up and all the fun times you had. As hard as it seems, now was the time for Lorraine to join your Dad, relatives and friends for her to enjoy her memories with them. Please know I am here to help in anyway I can as all the friends you both have are too.

Todd and Jeff ~ I am so sorry for your loss. We so enjoyed being your neighbors for many, many years. I also was fortunate to be a "co-worker" with your Mom at the little Valley School in Rushville. Lorraine was a truly wonderful person. With sincere sympathy. God bless you and your families.

Just heard of Lorraine's passing. She was a class act and I loved working with her. She was a woman of grace and kindness. I will always remember her fondly. Love and prayers to her family.

Fern Bomwell from Canandaigua on May. 16, 2024

To Lorraine's sons and their families, I was saddened to read of Lorraine's passing. She was my teacher assistant during my first two years of teaching. With her experience as a mother, she brought insights to the classroom that I had not yet acquired. She was a great teammate. I am so sorry her health failed. Please accept my sympathies.
