She was a charter member of Holiday Hills Country Club (HHCC) and a member of the Ladies Golf Association.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; four brothers; and three sisters.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Renew Home Health, Solaris Hospice, the third floor nurses at Palo Pinto General Hospital and the Careflight medics who brought her home. They were all loving, kind and made her feel special.

I hate to hear about Lorraine. She was a dear close friend of my mother and mine. We played a lot of golf and tennis together. She was a tremendous athlete and a fantastic yodeling singer with the Crazy Band at the Crazy Hotel... She will be dearly missed. Her wonderful family is in my thoughts and prayers. RIP Lorraine...❤️
