Aunty Lorraine, I just wanted to say that you were a big part of my life during my childhood. I have fond memories of visiting with the whole family and Linda and I staying with you , Nana & Pop on school holidays. I always enjoyed going on the tram to the markets food shopping and the train into the city amongst other things.
I remember you always being stylishly dressed and that you would have these beautiful skirts and cardigan sets that you would wear to work. You would have jewellery and other trinkets neatly in little boxes and envelopes.
Lorraine was an avid Trotting fan along with mum which was good; because it was a great way for my husband and I to catch up with you and mum together for a great night out! Lorraine was always talking to someone the whole night while tucking into potato cakes.
Even though we live in WA, you were always there to catch up with us when we came over to visit, which was appreciated.
You will always be in our memories.

Lorraines family my thought go out to you. I cared for Lorraine for 12 years and she always enjoyed her visits from family. Lorraine was fond of her Chinese lunches with close friends. Lorraine was always ready to help someone in need and very loyal. Such a sweet tooth, always had a stash of chocolates in her hallway cuboard and loved reading her books and magazines. Enjoyed her cooking shows.June 20, 2021
Lorraine I’m a better person through knowing you. Sleep in peace.🌼
I will miss you Lorraine. I respected the way you fiercely protected your independence , even when it frustrated me. I know you cared deeply for Bev, and all of us kids, as you were always asking after them and were interested in all of their achievements.June 21, 2021
Prayers and thoughts to Lorraine‘s family, she will be sadly missed.
I met Lorraine at Meadowvale when my Mother was there – this small very cheerful lady with sparkling brown eyes. She often went to church with Mother. She was a trotting enthusiast, enjoyed bus trips when possible amongst other things. Always full of news about her loving, helpful family, especially the children.
Lorraine had many disabilities but was uncomplaining.June 21, 2021
May she rest peacefully now, with love,
Every Christmas without fail we received a lovely card no matter how far away we were. Rest in peace AuntyJune 24, 2021
