She married the love of her life the late Robert (Bob) M. Cockerill on August 9, 1958. Together they raised and loved 5 children. Lorraine was best known as a happy, loving homemaker. She loved to cook, bake and share her love for the Lord as she made her home a haven for all who entered. In her later years, she enjoyed watching Hallmark and Lifetime channels immensely. She was especially dedicated to her family, son Timothy who preceded them in death and their children who survive: Pam (Bud) Burns of Kalkaska, Sherry (Jim) Dombrowski of South Boardman, Darla (Rory) Babcock of Kalkaska, Dawn (Rick) Bergen of Port Huron and Chad (Trisha) Cockerill of Mancelona.
