Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 27, 1925
Death: Nov. 28, 1942
Boston
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Lorrine Carlson was the adopted daughter of LeRoy Norman Carlson, Sr. and Mabel Louise Carlson.

A victim of the Coconut Grove Fire, she went to the Coconut Grove with her boyfriend, Robert Noyes, to dance. The fire broke out and Lorraine's fate was uncertain.

Her father, her aunt Lucile, and her "uncle" Harold, went to look for her body. They looked through hundreds of bodies, some not bad to some severly burnt. LeRoy knew Mabel wouldn't rest until he found Lorraine or her body. He picked a body he "thought" looked liked Lorraine.
