Lorraine enjoyed, jig-saw puzzles, canning and feeding the birds and animals that frequented her yard. She was passionate about growing flowers and gardening. She would often times get a head start on spring by growing seedlings in her windowsill. She looked after the park near her house and considered it an honor to raise the American flag every day. She was later honored for this by the mayor of Duluth and the DAR. Lorraine was a sweet woman who would do anything for anyone. She had a strong faith and was very much devoted to the Lord.
