Although we had lost touch in her later years, Lorraine and Joe were a very special part of our family for years. Lorraine was my father, Wiilard Christ, cousin, and they all visited quite often while living in Lancaster and Dubuque.

I will always remember the beautiful penmanship Lorraine had, even as sh got older. It was always so nice receiving a Christmas card and note from her.

God bless her. I will always have fond memories

Sincerely, Michael Christ

We were neighbors of Joe and Lorraine in N. Lancaster for many years and my parents, Bill & Dee Pohle, were also friends of theirs. I just happened to see Lorraine in Dec at the care center as our daughter, Joanna, was her OT.
She seemed to be doing well that day, we had a nice chat and I was saddened to hear she had passed away. She was a classy lady and always very pleasant to us. We share our sympathy with you, her family.
