I will always remember Lorraine with a smile. As a friend has said “she was a feisty old chick”.
It was a joy to know her.
Loved Lorraine. She was a member of our Ancaster Probus book club for many years. She had a wonderful laugh and enthusiasm for life.
Lorraine was also a member of Ancaster Probus.
I worked with Lorraine at Hamilton Public Health. She could be counted on to keep you grounded and then get you laughing. She always had a twinkle in her eye. She was a lovely mentor.
Lorraine was my first supervisor in Public Health, she was supportive, caring, practical, had an infectious laugh and definitely feisty! She was a great teacher, good listener and someone I admired a lot. I learned a lot from her, has been missed since she retired, and will never be forgotten.
Lorraine was my supervisor at the Hamilton Wentworth Regional Health Unit. As a new nursing grad and new to Public Health Nursing, Lorraine was a wonderful mentor. She led by example and her guidance was level headed and practical with the needs of individuals and families foremost. She had a wonderful sense of humour which she shared generously as she did her laugh. I am thankful for the very positive influence she had on my Public Health Nursing practice.
I will always remember Lorraine’s visits as Public Health Nurse when I had a new baby many years ago. I am still grateful! A lovely and very helpful lady.-
Lorraine was my first supervisor when I started public health in Hamilton
She was an amazing mentor and kept me in the loop about other opportunities that would work for me and my family
I respected her and admire her to this day
She thought highly of her family and many friends
I will miss her sense of humour and wonderful infectious laugh
Lorraine was a wonderful Supervisor. Always available to support her staff. A very kind and caring person. I truly enjoyed working for Lorraine. You will be greatly missed Lorraine.
Lorraine and I worked together as co-managers in the Parent Child Program at Hamilton Region Public Health for a number of years before she retired. She was such a great nurse, leader and friend. She was always laughing and we enjoyed working hard and laughing a lot. She always spoke so very highly of her siblings, their spouses and nieces/nephews. She truly adored her family and friends. She will be missed by many.
Lorraine was wonderful. Her laugh and her humour will long be remembered. Condolences to the whole family. RIP
To the Mcfadden family so sorry for your loss, Lorraine will be dearly missed. I always enjoyed the time I spent with her at Jack and Marlenes.

I’m sorry to see that Lorraine died. I was backup secretary for her sometimes and she was always generous and cheerful.
Sounds like she had a good life though. That’s all we can ask for.
