Lorraine walked peacefully into the spirit realm on August 9th, 2005, in the sanctuary of her beautiful home at the age of 70. Lorraine was born in Los Angeles on October 31, 1934. She lived the majority of her life in the Los Angeles area, mostly in the South Bay. She had many careers including medical research technician, personal financial planner and pet sitter. She was a loving, devoted mother & grandmother, always doting on her family and children. She is survived by her sister, Jan DeGraw, her son Michael Swanson, her daughters Drusilla Swanson & Ursula Santiago, her granddaughter Wysteria Berkow and her loyal dog, Major. She will be remembered for her loving, empathetic and caring ways towards family, friends, strangers and most of all her animal friends. She will also be remembered for the special way she took care of all those around her. She will be deeply missed by all of us. The wake she left in her passing was great, but the waves were gentle and soft for all us to feel.
