Lorraine G. Caron

LIVERMORE FALLS – Lorraine G. Caron died peacefully on Sept. 22, 2022, at age 78, in her home surrounded by family.

Born Dec. 28, 1943, Lorraine is the daughter of Cecile and Alphonse Dionne. She attended Lewiston High School and went on to receive her RN License from St. Mary’s School of Nursing.

She worked for over 26 years at Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington; from there, she spent 13 years at Medical Care Development teaching CRMA classes.

Lorraine married Joseph Armand Caron on Jan. 8, 1966, and they were devoted to each other for 56 years. They had five children Sonia (Andy) Schmeltzer, Philip (Amy French) Caron, Rachel Caron, Angêle (Paul Jackson) Caron, Marc Caron, and three grandchildren, Amanda (Mike) Nelsen, Shane Schmeltzer, and Natalie Rechholtz.

Lorraine spent her spare time with her grandchildren and children; when she wasn’t with them, you could find her gardening or quilting. Fall was her favorite time of year; she spent many days hiking, camping, and apple picking.

A memorial visitation will be held on Sept. 29 from 2 – 4 p.m. and 6 – 8 p.m. in The Fortin Group Funeral Home, 217 Turner St. Auburn. The following day on Sept. 30, a memorial mass will be held at St. Rose of Lima Church, 1 Church St, Jay, ME 04239, at 11 a.m.
