Born in West Stewartstown, NH to the late Louis Poirier and Lauretta (Ostiguy). Lorraine lived in St. Albans, VT until she married in 1952, and then resided in Medford since 1968. After high school, Lorraine attended Radiology Technical School in Boston. She took great pride in raising her family. She also worked at The Gillette Company in Cambridge and Andover as an Administrative Assistant. Lorraine was a caregiver all her life; she was only 14 years old when her mother died. Her father Louis came to live with her and Gus after his wife died until he died several years later at the age of 89. She cared for her husband Gus for over 26 years after he suffered from a stroke. Lorraine was also a woman of strong faith. She attended the 9am daily Mass during the week, and the 7:30am Mass on Sundays.
