Lorraine was full of life and loved to dance and sing. She enjoyed traveling with her close friends from Southwest Philly, and enjoyed her summers at the shore in Ocean City. Lorraine and her husband Dan were big supporters of West Catholic sending all four of their sons to West and attending many West Catholic functions including Burrs at the Beach.
She adored her grandchildren attending many recitals and sporting events. She loved her sons and her daughter-in-laws who quickly became the daughters she never had. But more than anything she loved her husband Dan and the time they spent together traveling and living life.
