Lorraine Claire Warhaftig

June 20, 1933July 11, 2018

Lorraine Claire Warhaftig, 85, of West Orange, New Jersey, died at home on Wednesday, July 11, 2018. Lorry was a beloved daughter to Sarah and David Altbaum, sister to Gladys Loring, and adoring wife to Jack Warhaftig, all of blessed memory. Lorry’s memory lives on with her daughters and sons(-in-law), Jeri (Neil Fabricant), Susan (David Lundgren), and Linda (George Kaltschmid). She lived to love seven grandchildren, Noah (Alexandra Harwin), Seth (Elizabeth), Jonah, Jackson, Miles, Ashleyann, and Cameron, and two great-grandchildren, Lorraine and Frances.

Words do not suffice to describe how loved and admired Lorry was by a wide circle of family and friends. She was an artist who saw beauty in the world and added to it—through her painting, but even more through her laughter, kindness, and joy.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, July 13, 2018 at 11:45 a.m. at Bernheim Apter Kreitzman Suburban Funeral Chapel, 68 Old Short Hills Rd., Livingston, NJ. Interment will follow at Beth Israel Cemetery in Woodbridge, NJ.

Donations in Lorry’s memory may be made to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund at Temple Beth Or, 56 Ridgewood Rd., Township of Washington, NJ 07676.
