Lorraine Orrin died June 20th. She born Jewell Lorraine Forsee on Oct. 25, 1924 in Summersville, Mo. the family later moved to Southern California where she put herself through college. She met her husband, Roy Orrin, a Marine newly home from World War II, at a church social.
They both became educators and school administrators, and Lorraine spent 35 years teaching her great passion, mathematics. She created an individualized program where each student could work at his or her own speed in the Hacienda-La Puente Unified School District. She also loved to tutor grandchildren and anyone with an interest.
Roy and Lorraine retired to Coarsegold in 1979, putting a house just outside Yosemite Lakes Park on the Fresno River, where she took up her second great passion, gardening. They were soon joined by Roy's brother, Ron, and his wife, Alice, and his family, as well as Lorraine's sister, Edna, and husband, Bud Gensel, and her family, all living next to each other.
Lorraine and her husband continued their love of teaching in the Madera County jail system, helping prisoners earn high school diplomas.
She moved back to Southern California a few years after the death of her husband, to be closer to her sister, Edna, who relocated to be closer to their growing family.
Lorraine was preceded in death by her husband, Roy, and younger son, Kevin.
She is survived by her elder son, Rick, and his wife, Mary, of Coarsegold; two grandchildren, Chad, of Fresno, and Casey and her husband Alex Midgely and great-grandchild, Conner, of Missouri; two step grandchildren, Jesse and Lauren Burrill; sister, Edna, and brother-in-law, Bud, and family and a brother, Paul, and his wife, Joyce Forsee.
