September 12, 1930 – June 24, 2020
Lorraine Marie Fahey, 89 of Westmoreland, passed away on June 24, 2020 while resting comfortably in her home with family and friends surrounding her.
She was born on September 12, 1930 in Keene, NH to the late Leona (Spring) and Donri Boufford and attended area schools.

William and Lorraine love dancing and were amazing jitterbug partners. They enjoyed fishing, camping, and the great outdoors with the whole family. Lorraine was a caregiver at heart and cherished being able to play an active role in her grandchildren’s lives in this way.
Lorraine will be deeply missed by her children: Bill Fahey and his wife Mary Lynn of Greenland, NH, Debra (Fahey) Clark of Westmoreland, NH, and Marie Glinski of Hollywood, FL; grandchildren: Christine Marie of Seattle, WA; Joshua Fahey of Hollywood, FL, and Timothy, Piper, and Kevin Fahey all of Greenland, NH; great-granddaughters: Gabriella and Sabrina, of Seattle WA, brother: Edward “Pete” Boufford of Keene, NH; dear friend, caretaker, and companion of nine years: Eva “Casey” Ghee of Westmoreland, NH; and close friend Anthony Giannetti , also of Westmoreland, NH.

I worked in Medical Records at both Elliot, and Cheshire Hospitals. I would run into Lorraine many times during the day. She was such a kind, smiling, friendly person. I always enjoy speaking to her. The family has my condolences, and prayers. Geraldine Shearer Patnaude
