LACONIA – Lorraine (Perry) Morin, 84, of Laconia, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at home with her childhood sweetheart, Donald P. Morin, Sr, and family by her side.
Lorraine was born in Laconia on June 20, 1936 and had many fond memories of growing up on “the farm” in Sanbornton. She graduated from Laconia High School and later took college courses with her husband earning an Associate Degree. She worked side by side with her husband building 3 businesses, where she worked until her retirement.
Married 64 years, she and her husband had the opportunity to travel the world while actively involved in the National Association of Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Contractors (PHCC), for which she served as President of the National Auxiliary at one time. Lorraine was a devout Catholic, teaching CCD, serving as an Extraordinary Minister, and working with the Ladies Guild, including a term as President.
In addition to her loving husband, Lorraine is survived by 3 children, Donald P Morin, Jr (Susan) of Gilford, NH; Donna Breault of Laconia, NH; and Shawn Morin of Portage, OH. She was the proud grandmother of Sarah, Jeffrey, and Rebecca Chadwick; Charles and Perry Morin; and Zachary, Gabriel, Samuel, and Lydia Morin; plus 7 great-grandchildren (Richard, Dominic, Dante, Addison, Charlotte, Bradley, Travis), and 1 great, great-grandson (Maddox). Given her devotion to her family and children, she and Don raised their 2 oldest great-grandsons, Richard Fielders III and Dominic Ferrari, for many years.
Lorraine is also survived by sisters, Frances (Richard) Zahn of VA; Rebecca Roy of MA; and Eileen (Teena) Hawkins of NY; brother-in-law Kevin Brown of MA; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Eugene Perry, Jesse (Clark) Perry, and Henry Perry, as well as a sister, Mary Brown, and brothers, James, William, and Charles Perry.
