Lorraine was enjoying everyday life and working a puzzle up until the Lord took her.
Lorraine, born Jan. 27, 1929, grew up in St. Paul, Midway and was a member of Simpson Memorial Church. She graduated from Wilson High School and Minneapolis School of Art and Design. Lorraine married Willis in 1956, a Navy veteran of WWII. The family lived in Shoreview where her two daughters were born. The family moved to Forest Lake in 1972. Lorraine enjoyed designing patterns and clothes, and doing freelance work for numerous interesting companies.
Willis died in 1999, so she moved to Mounds View to be near her mom and the rest of her family. Lorraine has always been active in her church. She loved to garden, bird watch, create things in fabric, cook and spend time with her family.
