We will honor her by celebrating her life here on earth and rejoicing in her eternal life in Heaven.
Lorraine Ellen Powell, age 59, passed away on Tuesday, May 31, at her home after a long struggle with health problems.
She was born November 09, 1956 in Burtonwood, UK to Gary and Doreen Swem. Her family moved to the USA when she was 3 years old.
She married her lifelong love, Steven Powell on November 26, 1993. Lorraine wanted a home filled with laughter and love, so she filled it with kids and pets.
She enjoyed reading and listening to music - Aerosmith, the Beatles, Brooks and Dunn were among her favorites. Hippie at heart, she was also a true animal lover. Lorraine’s talents were many, she was extremely good at drawing, she was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother (“nana” as she would prefer). Christmas was her favorite holiday, she enjoyed decorating the house with lights and ornaments while singing along to Feliz Navidad.
Lorraine is survived by her husband, Steven Powell, her three children, Heather French, Kelly, Michael Powell; four grandchildren, Madison, Owen, Liam, Remy, and father Gary Swem. She also leaves behind numerous loving relatives and friends.
Her life will forever be cherished in the lives of her children and husband.
