    Lorraine was a great lady. I worked with her for 15 yrs at Jostens. I have fond memories of her sharing the bounty of her garden with us all and sharing her delicious hamburger slaw! She was truly a great Christian woman and I counted her a friend. God bless her family and friends during this tough time.
