My wife and I became friends with Carl & Lorraine when as newlyweds we moved next door to them on Tireman St. in 1978. We became friends instantly and they treated us like we were their kids.
After we had our daughter Sarah in 1981 Carl and Lorraine assumed the role as the “third set”of grandparents for Sarah, and that’s how Sarah thought of both of them.
While helping them pack for their move to Williamston I came across a picture of Lorraine when she was younger. When I told her that the picture looked exactly like the actress Donna Reed she blushed and said others had said the same thing when she was younger.
Several years after their move my family visited with Lorraine and to our amazement she informed us that she had learned to drive! We all had a big laugh over that.
Carl and Lorraine were great friends and neighbors and both will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Lorraine was such a special lady to me. She was a good friend and neighbor to my mom. They enjoyed each other’s company over dinners, car rides through the countryside, and shopping. When my mom passed away quite suddenly in 2013, our friendship grew even closer. I began taking her out for dinner occasionally and helping out in any way she needed. I was always so encouraged by talking and listening to her. She was a very positive, classy lady! I will cherish my memories of Lorraine, and will miss her dearly!

Lorraine and I were "pew pals" during the time I attended St. Mary. She shared memories of "her Carl" and missed him always. My favorite memory was of how she always was dressed for church like it was a special occasion. May she rest in peace.
