Walking through the doors of the Shippan Racquet Club and Kings Highway Tennis Club was always the highlight of my day because I got to see Lorraine. She was so patient and friendly to everyone and her love for the sport was apparent. If Lorraine was not at the front desk, I would often hold off on asking questions until she returned. After Shippan closed, I had the opportunity to play on her Mixed Doubles team at Kings Highway. My husband and I adored Lorraine and thought she was the best captain. Whether you won or lost the match, Lorraine would be ready with a ton of compliments and ready to say a toast to all players. We had a blast hanging out with the team and Lorraine after the match was completed. Lorraine attended the matches to support the team regardless if she was in the line-up. I was very sad to hear of Lorraine's passing and we miss her smile and positive energy very much.

I met Lorraine through tennis like many others. We worked together behind the desk and I always admired her wit, humor and intelligence. She was an extremely hard worker and did her job well. What I admired most about Lorraine was her candidness and honestly, which said a lot about the big-hearted person she was.
I am thankful for the memories I have of Lorraine. Rest peacefully

I met Lorraine through a tennis blog. She was funny, witty, and a passionate sports fan. I never had a chance to meet her in person, but I remember sharing many many laughs with her through the interwebs. I am stunned to know that she is no more. Regretfully, it had been a long while since we had interacted. I will miss her a lot and I hope she is happy and peaceful wherever she is.

I also knew Lorraine through our love for tennis. She was sharp, witty, compassionate, and had a wonderful talent for wordplay.
I thought this was the summer to pay L a visit but it was not to be. I will miss her dearly.
My sincerest condolences to Lorraine’s friends and family.

Lorraine was a dear, dear friend who I was e-troduced to via our shared love of tennis. she and I shared many interests, but the most special trait we had was our shared love of respect for our fellow man. even when that person was filthier than a gutter the morning after st. patrick's day, she managed to eek out the sort of courtesy we wanted on our worst days. i love her and miss her dearly.
