It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Lorraine C. Watson, on January 14, 2010. Born in Buffalo, NY on May 19, 1927, Lorraine married her husband, Eldon, on June 8, 1946. The couple relocated to California in 1952 and settled in Torrance to raise their four boys. Lorraine retired from Sears Credit Center in 1985 and spent her retirement years involved in many activities including part-time employment with American Greetings Card Company, knitting hats for needy children, and many hours of volunteer work at Torrance Memorial Medical Center. Her love of life and family along with her wonderful sense of humor will be missed by her many family members. Preceded in death by her husband of 54 years Eldon and infant child Robert, Lorraine is survived by her sons James (Linda) of Torrance, George (Karin) of Maui, Hawaii, Michael (Cindy) of Torrance, and William(Kris) of Rancho Palos Verdes along with seven grandchildren. Rest well, Mom.

  1. Having grown up on Marion Avenue, just two doors down from what will always be known in my family as “The Watson’s house”; it is with a deep sadness that we offer our sincerest condolences on Mrs. Watson’s passing. Her quiet grace and kindness will be missed.
