I just loved Lorraine, she was so nice and caring to my mom and grandmother. always fixing their hair and being a strong support system for them. I will always remember when Lorraine and the kids first moved back to Waubay and lived in the cabin. When I was at their house spending the night or visiting Lorraine would always gather all the kids in a circle to pray and had us share what we wanted to pray for. I always remembered this and always will! My prayers to all of her family in the upcoming days...Love, Eileen Anderson-Pfeiffer

I will never forget Lorraine's kindnesses to my Mother when Mom was hospitalized. Lorraine made several trips to Webster to "fix" Mom's hair. She was one of a kind and she truely cared about "her ladies." She will be greatly missed in this community, but I am sure "her ladies" are so happy she came to see them. Waubay lost a wonderful and caring businesswoman. You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
