Lorraine Kathryn Laswell was born on November 23, 1925 in Chicago, Illinois and passed away on January 17, 2013 in Apple Valley, California.

Lorraine & her husband George W Laswell were long-time residents of Victorville.

George ended his career with the armed forces here after being stationed at George Air Force Base.

Lorraine began her 25-year association with Continental at this same time.

She was preceded in death by her husband George; her parents Dennis Michael Hickey and Genevieve Flynn Hickey; sister Dorothy Hickey; and brothers John and Robert Hickey.

Lorraine spent her working years with various telephone companies, starting as a high school graduate at Illinois Bell in Chicago and later at Southwest Bell in Dallas and Pacific Bell in northern California. She completed her career at Contel Company in Victorville.

Though a dedicated worker at Contel, she found time to volunteer for her community and with ITPA and the Victor Valley Assistance League, as well as being a member of the Supervisory Committee at the Member's Own Credit Union.

She enjoyed many rounds of golf at the Green Tree Golf Course, including tournament events.

Lorraine is survived by a sister in Lancaster, Texas; and by her devoted friends and caretakers Ophie & Glen of Apple Valley, California.

She requested that there be no funeral services, and to honor her memory and her request, graveside services will be held on Saturday, January 19th at 1:00pm at the Desert View Cemetery, with Pastor Hector Gonzalez officiating.
