March 18, 1920 ~ April 5, 2010
Loraine Dwyer "Wife, Mother, Sister, Nana, Friend", died April 5, 2010 in her home with her family by her side; she was 90 years young. She is survived by her husband William "Mickey", two children Steve and Sue, grandchildren and great grand children.
She was born March 18, 1920, in Minnesota to Harry and Ella Winter. Her father was a hard working farmer. Her mother homemaker and seamstress.
She met her husband William "Mickey" Dwyer in High School, dated for 7 years and married on April 14, 1941. They spent 75 years of love together. After marriage they headed off to California and settled in Inglewood. Here, they worked hard and raised their family.
She was an active member of Good Sheppard Lutheran Church, belonged to countless clubs and worked with various charities. She lived life to the fullest! Her thirst for adventure and love of different cultures led her to travel all over the world. She went to the top of the Eiffel tower, has been to Mass at the Vatican in Rome, Kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland (more then once), Germany, Holland, Alaska, Greece to name a few and traveled to all of the 50 states. She was fun loving, always happy (with that bright smile she is famous for), passionate, kind and giving to everyone, and she loved the Lord and her family with all her being. She was an angel and she will be missed dearly!
We found the poem and wanted to share it with you all.
Poem of Life
Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
I think this poem gives us an inside look into how Lori viewed the world both in life and death. It has provided our family with great comfort. We know that as we all gather to pay our wishes, she is with us.
God's Love and Blessings to you all!
