Dearest Lorraine, the Champion of The Telegraph Classified Department. You always hit the goal, filled our directories with ads, were patient with every customer, and managed to overcome every new computer update. I shared many years with you at The Telegraph. We shared stories and laughs and Progress teamwork. I have photos of us taken during The Telegraph holiday parties we enjoyed. You were and always will be our Champion. Rest in Peace Dearest Lorraine.
With love from your buddy, Margaret Femia

Denise, so sorry to hear about your Mom. I remember spending overnights there when I was a little girl and she would perm my hair back then. She was always so nice to me. So sorry for your loss.

Oh! The millions of camping 🏕 trips and scrabble games we played! She was my favorite scrabble partner. We would play for hours! Of course she always had to have her little dictionary an d always always a toothpick!
What a lot of laughs and fun we had.
Of course there were always the Saturday night poker games at alternating homes and her yearly Christmas 🎉🎄
I will miss her dearly 😢💔
With much love, Mitch

Denise, I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear about your mom. We have so many memories to share. The ones I think are most special are the Saturday night card parties. Our parents were so involved with their games we kids could do anything, and probably did. Aunt Lorraine, I was blessed to have you as my godmother , but more to have you in my life. You have left a big impression on my heart. I find peace in knowing you are in heaven now with all our loved ones. Please watch over those who are left behind. Till we meet again.....❤️❤️

Aunt Lorraine, where do I many wonderful and happy memories I hold deep in my heart. From our years of camping together as families growing up, to the family Christmas parties held in your Nashua home, to the many Saturday nights you spent playing cards at our home...The sound of your laughter resignates in my mind and brings a smile to my face. You were loved by all of your sisters, your brother, your nieces and nephews and all whose lives you touched....Our Aunt Lorraine with her toothpick...these beautiful memories will live on in our hearts forever. Rest in Peace now in the Arms of Angels. You have earned your Angel Wings.
