Dear Steve and family,
It is with much sadness that we learned of Lorraine's passing. I, (John), remember so well, the many years we spent together at Whitman Middle school and particularly, Lorraine's caring and devoted attitude to all her students. It is an honor to have worked with her and to have shared her ideals. We wish to offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to you and your family and friends.
Theresa and I have strong faith, but with this COVID-19 situation, going to the mass is a bit tricky for us at 74. We would most likely have been present except for the fact that I just had aortic valve replacement surgery done about 1 1/2 weeks ago. The doctor has told me to stay home and avoid any close contacts. Our prayers for you and your whole family and friends will be offered Saturday right from our home. May Lorraine rest in peace after such an arduous period.

Lorraine Dellelo was a special friend who had a warm smile, a sense of humor, and a positive attitude. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Always appreciative of the wonders of the natural world, she studied science and served as a dedicated teacher. Her appreciation of beauty was reflected in the beautiful and tasteful décor of her family home, where she always made her friends feel welcome. We will miss her kindness and caring.
