Rest in Peace, Lorraine
Lorraine H. Riley (neé Barbaccia) on May 1, 2013
AGE: 65 • Washington Twp., NJ
A strong and independent woman, Lorraine's family and friends were always the center of her life. She loved to cook and make creative cakes for all the birthdays and holidays. She looked forward to her summers at the beach in Margate with family and friends, and would relax with a good book or a challenging puzzle. She loved to root for the home team and make a "celebration" out of everyday events. Lorraine was a retired Elementary School teacher and left her mark on many students. She was a selfless woman who was always available to offer help, friendship, or advice and strived to Live, Laugh, Love.
She is the beloved wife of 30 years to Anthony J.; cherished daughter of the late John and Eleanor Barbaccia; devoted mother and best friend of Karen Maley (Scott) and Tracey Basista (Brian); stepmother to Tina; dear sister to Joseph Barbaccia (Candace) and John Barbaccia Jr.; loving grandmom of Rachel and Sarah; adored aunt to many.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Lorraine's visitation Saturday from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon followed by a Celebration of Life at 12:00 noon held at McGUINNESS FUNERAL HOME, 573 Egg Harbor Rd., Sewell, (Washington Twp.) NJ, 08080
