My deepest condolences to Dennis and your family.
Lorraine will always hold a large part of my heart. She was a very special friend to Me. We shared many good conversations, since I moved to Florida almost 10 yrs. I couldn't go to PA without stopping in to see her these last few years.
Lorraine was a Friend who didn't judge, or compare . She knew how to make you feel better with her kind words.
I thank God for sending her to my door 44 years ago, to sign me up..... Avon of course.
Thank you Lorraine for all you taught me, and for your love and kindness all these years.
Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again.

My Dear Sweet Friend. The first time I saw you, you had on a Purple Cape and Matching Hat. That was mid Nov. 1969 and yes Avon mgrs. wore hats and gloves. It was part of the attire they must wear and of course no pants. You were the nicest and most elegant lady that ever entered my home. You talked me into becoming an Avon Rep. We struck up a friendship that included meeting for lunch, exchanging Christmas, Birthday, and get well cards and love for 52 yrs. You always had my respect and admiration. God Bless you and I know Cindy and Dutch have been waiting. My feelings are with Dennis and his family. Gods Blessings to you all.

My Aunt Rainey was a special lady. She always had a smile and a hug and loved to laugh and spoil everyone around her. I admired her more than I can say. She was my mom's younger sister. You don't meet many people as special as she was. She always was supportive and willing to listen. I know she is with Uncle Dutch, Cindy, my mom and the rest of the family and maybe they are playing cards or having fun catching up. I will miss her very much but I know she is in a better place. Love you Aunt Rainey!

Dennis and family so sorry for your loss but I know she is now at peace with Dutch and Cindy. Lorraine was a dear friend for 45 years. We met in 1976 when she was my Avon manager and have remained friends over the years. I enjoyed seeing her at Avondell every month and am so glad that I last saw her in September. We had a chance to chat and she gave me a hug. RIP Lorraine you were a special lady and will be missed. Love , Carol and Ed Mallon
