My deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to all of Lorraine's family and friends. Lorraine was the best boss and leader I've ever had. I was so very lucky to have had 2 years to work beside her and learn from her at Athol Hospital. I say work beside her because although I am young, and was new to the HIM world, she never made me feel as though I was below her. I respected her and looked up to her. She truly valued and appreciated her staff. I loved her sense of humor. We were always able to joke and have a good time with her. She is deeply missed. RIP Lorraine <3

Lorraine was a great neighbor on Foss Rd. She was always so helpful to my mom whether through shoveling snow or helping her get groceries in the house. Lorraine had a great servants heart. I am sorry for your loss. I've thought of her often throughout the years. I can only imagine how much you will always think of her. It's nice to think that she's with her mom again--who was also a great lady.
