Loraine was “Mom and Granny” to her family. She was born in the early 1940s during the time of the depression and learned to do many things well. She was very frugal yet generous with her family and friends. She was taught by her mother and became an excellent seamstress and sewing was a favorite hobby through the years. She used her creative talents to make cherished blankets for her children, grand and great-grandchildren that were the envy of many.

She sewed therapy dolls, aprons and other useful items for Alzheimer patients and Covenant Hospice, an organization she supported. Many pillow case dresses, salvation dolls and boys’ shorts were created with love at her sewing machine.

She loved the Lord and labored to send the message of Christ with her church family to other countries with these creations. In her later years, she taught herself how to crochet and knit. Family and friends were showered with dishcloths, pot scrubbers and scarves as she shared her talents with others. Loraine was employed by First National Bank of Atmore, retiring after 37 years to do what she loved best, spending time with family, travel and do volunteer work. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion Post 90 for many years. A member of Robinsonville Baptist Church, she was past church treasurer, assistant church treasurer and assistant Sunday School Director. She sang in the choir and was a great friend and supporter of the many ministries there. She coordinated the Samaritans Purse shoebox ministry and her room would be filled with shoeboxes. She was a prayer warrior and whether you were family, friend or stranger she carried many burdens to the throne of God for others! An Avid Auburn fan, she enjoyed attending games with her family and watching them on TV. She loved wearing her favorite team colors during football season (Go Tigers). Loraine’s life journey came to an end on April 30 after a brief illness. She was surrounded by her family, and Pastor Mark Jones, whom she loved dearly. She will be dearly missed.
