BURROWS, Lorraine M. (Lorentz)

BURROWS - Lorraine M. (nee Lorentz) Age 85, died on Tuesday, April 12, 2015 surrounded by family. Born on December 29, 1930 in Lancaster, NY, Lorraine (Lorrie) was the last surviving child born to Catherine and Edward Lorentz. After high school, Lorrie held office positions and in her twenties moved to Buffalo where she started a family. When Lorrie's children were teens, she and the late Earl Burrows blended families beginning a devoted marriage of 30 years. She worked full-time for 23 years in Lockport at Harrison Radiator, but her priority was always family: hosting gatherings, visiting children who moved, and spending endless hours with her grandchildren. Later, Lorrie stepped into the role as her mother's caretaker for 15 years, delivered Meals on Wheels with Earl for 10 years, volunteered at the Lancaster Opera House, and organized countless garage sales for friends and family. Eight years ago, Lorrie moved into Fox Run, a retirement community, which she proudly called home. Here, she entertained family with ease and made enduring friendships. Lorrie was the family's foundation and will be forever missed. Her memory will be honored by Susan A. (Michael)
