Memories Timeline


  1. Lorraine and Russ have been dear friends for 50 years. They have shown us a wonderful marriage of two souls who have been there for each other at all times. May God’s Grace be with Russ, Joan, Janelle, Barb and their loved ones. Bruce and Cindy Markey

  2. I was saddened to hear the news about Lorraine. She was such a joy to work with at Western States Life. Prayers to all

  3. Many fond memories of our visits with my aunt Lorraine, uncle Russ and my cousins Joan, Janelle and Barb. She led a full life and was well loved. My thoughts are with uncle Russ and my cousins.

  4. Russ & family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed knowing her from Western States days while John was still there.
    She was my age and so probably we were at the same basketball games -Fertile and Twin Valley. However I didn’t know her then. Take comfort in all your good memories.
