Despite her large family, Lorraine provided support and love for each of her children and grandchildren. Lorraine and Gerald worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for their kids. Lorraine was very proud of her children. She had a passion to make each grandchild feel special and important. “She was the best teacher when it came to crafts and sewing. Mom was patient while showing me how to thread a sewing machine. Mom was a mentor to me and my sisters, teaching us that it is important to take care of your family. I always looked forward to our time spent crafting and drinking coffee,” according to daughter, Ann Marie Carducci. “She was the best Mother-in-Law that a person could ask for; I will miss the conversations I had with her,” Adam Carducci stated. While Lorraine’s family grieves her loss, they are choosing to remember Lorraine in a way that honors her spirit and provides personal closure for those that were closest to her. Lorraine was very close to her family. A private family service will be held in her honor on Monday, March 7, 2022, at Wasik Funeral Home in New Baltimore, Michigan.
