    Our most sincere condolences on the loss of your wife, mom, grandma. I have many good memories with Lorraine when you all lived in Golden Prairie from Tupperware parties, Children's hour, 5 Day Club & visiting over a coffee. If she was at work at Walmart, I always choose her till just to get a quick visit & catch up on life. Keep all your memories forever close & reminisce often of all your times together as a close knit family.

    My heart sank when I saw the post on FB!! Both Dick and Lorraine were apart of our family for many years! Lorraine's cheerfulness and always smiling face, her hugs!!! Her hugs were the best, no matter where we were,, in Walmart at her checkout... she’d always stop everything and come around and give me that much needed hug!!!! Dick and Lorraine have always had a special place in my heart... and always will. Much love and respect for Lorraine, Dick and the family

    I am so sorry to hear of your family's loss. Lorraine was a special person, always happy and smiling which made everyone around her feel happy too. I have lots of childhood memories of her...driving the school bus, Children's Hour/5 Day club, and all the times she took a bunch of us girls to the city for Faith or Joy's fun Waterslide & McDonald's birthday parties. My thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time. She will be missed by many.

    You have lost someone who is a shining star. Because of her sunny disposition Lorraine was always such a source of joy and love. She was the best card writer even when others didn't send cards anymore.

    About 25 years ago, when visiting relatives in Canada I met Lorraine. It was a pleasure meeting her.
    She was so enthusiastically telling about her life in Golden Prairie and all the things she did like her Tupperware parties and driving a school bus.
    My condolences to Dick and his family.
    Hopefully you will find the strength to cope with this loss.

    We were so saddened when we learned of your loss. It was so nice we could watch the recording of the service as we were late in hearing of this. It was very touching. Larry and I send all our sympathy and caring thoughts to you Dick, as well as to Lorraine’s precious girls and their families. Family meant everything to her. I feel so blessed to have had her care for my children for several years. What a kind soul she was. Take care.
