On September 25, 1956, by herself, Loraine boarded the ocean liner “SS Conte Grande” and set sail for America.

They eventually settled in Liberty County, Texas where they raised three children. Loraine was a strong independent woman who took pride in being the family matriarch. She enjoyed cooking and gardening. She once won a contest for her home grown cauliflower. Loraine loved her family and especially cherished her grandkids. She was a long standing member of Immaculate Conception Church in Liberty. Loraine will forever be missed by all who knew and loved her.
