After the army John and Lorraine lived in Rockford, Ill for a short time, then moved to Johns’ family farm outside Poplar Bluff, MO. While there she developed a southern drawl.  We sisters tried correcting her speech for 20 plus years.  She never did give up the word sody for soda pop.  While still in Mo she married Roy Sparks. Son Aaron was born to this union.  1973 she moved to NE to be with family.  She married Sonny Pourier.  To this union 2 more children were born Danine & Shawn.  Lorraine spent a few years being a ranch wife & mother.  She loved to bake.  Her favorite was soft sugar cookies and there was always an ice cream bucket full in the freezer.  Her contribution for all the holiday meals was Frog Eye Salad, 7 Layer Salad and her special deviled eggs. Which everyone loved.

When living in Gordon she worked at GMH.  Usually the night shift.  Quite a few of those years she was an OB tech & helped deliver a lot of babies.  In 2000 she moved to Las Vegas. After a few odd jobs she was hired as a security guard at Treasure Island and worked there until she retired.  This was her lifetime favorite job.  She met many stars which thrilled her.  Lorraine loved to crochet and was very good at it and fast. She enjoyed gardening when she could and reading true crime novels. She loved being with her grandkids and her dog and faithful companion Joey.
