Lorraine and Rafael tirelessly worked their tobacco farm in Princeton, Ontario for 38 years while raising their 3 children enjoying farming as a family.
Lorraine had a passion for baking for friends, family and even ventured into selling her baked goods from their garage. She baked wonderful Frangipane and Belgium waffle cookies among numerous cakes, and pies for all. She loved to laugh and always had a good joke to bring a smile to all around her. Lorraine and Rafael retired to Mount Elgin, Ontario. Lorraine was the much-loved matriarch of her family, and she will be fondly remembered by all.
