Together they happily raised two daughters in Winthrop. After several years as a stay-at-home mom, Lorraine went back to work in the bookkeeping and accounting field. She retired as office manager from Winthrop Fuel Company. She was happily married to Carl for 52 years. Lorraine enjoyed spending time with her family, reading, and volunteering for the soup kitchen and St. Michael parish. She will be fondly remembered for her kindness, clever wit, and delicious baked goods, especially her raspberry bars.
