One Tribute to “Lorraine Marie Landau-Vader”

  1. I would like to express my sympathies on the death of Lorraine. I believe Lorraine would have been my second cousin. My Mother was Jean (Charland) Kell. Orville was her Father and my Grandfather. I can remember meeting Aunt Rose and Uncle Albert as a child. They were visiting from Chicago and stopped in to see us. I only met Lorraine briefly. She was my counselor for a short time. I found her to be a very kind and caring person. I am sorry I never got to know her better. That is my loss. My deepest sympathies to her family and dear friend, Cheryl Corbiere.
