On behalf of the Joan (McInerney) Di Marzo family, we’d like to extend our deepest condolences to Lorraine’s family. “Aunt Lorraine” was my Godmother and a dear friend to my mother, Joan. My mother passed away recently, and I only learned about Lorraine’s passing when I tried to reach her. My last conversation with Lorraine last summer was as lovely as she was—sweet and kind, sharing with me stories and her love for her family. Now the two girlfriends are both at peace and maybe even reunited. Sincere sympathies to all.
