Above all, Lorrayne loved the Lord Jesus Christ with all her heart and was an active member of Hillside Church where she served as a deaconess. The church was organized in the basement of the Ribe home when she was a child. To know Lorrayne was to love her. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
