I first met Lorraine in 1986, when I transferred into what was then "Cash Management at Sun Bank". She was always willing to share her knowledge with others and was a true professional.
She was passionate about her clients and the company. She also had a great sense of humor and I don't believe I ever heard her say an unkind word about or to, anyone.

Rest in peace, Lorraine. You were one of a kind and will truly be missed.

Deepest sympathy to her family in their loss of such an amazing person.

For many years I worked with Lorraine and felt fortunate be with a team that became friends as well as business associates. Lorraine
was a shinning star in Treasury Management. She showed professionalism and made our clients feel comfortable that they were dealing with a true professional and friend. I was fortunate to continue our friendship at after my retirement and to see her remain strong in illness. . Will miss her and send love to all the family.

My deepest condolences! I didn't have the benefit of knowing Lorraine for very long, but worked in the same office for a bit and really enjoyed our conversations as we passed one another in the hall. I'm thankful I had the opportunity to get to know her, even if only for a short while. All my best. Adele
