  2. To the Moroney Family: Our sincere sympathies in the loss of our Aunt Lorraine…a funny lady she was! My mom, Armida and my Aunt Delores would share many funny stores about their fun times together and they certainly enjoyed Ned and Lorraine’s visit to Iron River each year and also their travels to Virginia as well. I am sure you have many happy memories that will live on in. Sincerely, Diane and Duane Petcoff

  7. To the Moroney family: I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s death.

  11. Tedddy, Paul, Billy. Lisa and Patrick, I am saddened to of the passing of Auntie Lorraine. She was always such a bright light. Always funny and loving. I will miss her. My deepest condolences. Love, Jane

  12. Dear Teddy, Paul, Billy, Lisa and Patrick, Jim and I were so sorry to hear of Auntie Lorraine’s passing. When I think of Auntie Lorraine I always remember her incredible sense of humor and her supportive nature. When Jim thinks of her, he fondly remembers Auntie Lorraine welcoming him into our family at our wedding by telling him “Finally another Italian in the family… You and I’ll have to stick together!!!

  13. Dear Teddy,Paul,Patrick,Billy, and Lisa, I am so happy to have visited with Auntie Lorraine at her home several years ago. She was the usual arm swinging, hand gesturing, very welcoming Italian, as was my dad, her brother John. She proudly showed me, Gene (my husband), and Ryan (my youngest son) around the house and yard. We sat in the house and enjoyed ice water, soda, and conversation. My son had just moved to Alexandria, and I was so looking forward to visiting with as many of you as I could, since we have not been in close touch with each other over the years. She was very proud of all of her children, and newly adopted grandchild, as I remember there was only one at the time, but I could be mistaken. May happy memories help to sustain you in the coming days and through the coming years. My brothers Don, and Bruce and I are having Masses said for Auntie Lorraine in Iron River. With sympathy, Sandy, Gene, Ryan Lepisto. P.S. Ryan continues to work for the Patent Dept., but is now in the process of moving back to Madison, Wisconsin where he will continue his work as a Patent Officer. So we have again lost our connection. We would love to hear from you.

  14. Dear Ted, Paul, Billy, Patrick, and Lisa, My apologies for my lack of memory on the grandchildren. I know there were nine, and my sympathies especially go out to them, knowing how important Grandma is to her grandchildren.

  15. Dear Ted, Paul, Bill, Lisa, Patrick and family; Our deepest sympathy to all of you and the grandchildren of Aunt Lorraine’s. We thought of all of you today and wish we could have attended the funeral to give you some comfort and support at this sad time in your life. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. We pray God will give you the strength you need to overcome the sadness you have in your hearts. We are having a Mass said at St. Agnes church in Iron River, MI and will let you know the date so you can also say a prayer for your Mom. Our love and sympathy to all of you. Sincerely, Don and Sally Fiorani

  16. Dear Teddy, Paul, Patrick, Billy, and Lisa, My wife Harriet and I extend our condolence in the loss of a great lady. My Aunt was one of the happiest, most sharing people I have ever known and we will miss her greatly. She will be in our prayers and we will have a mass in her name at the parish she grew up in.
