On February 17, 2013, Lorraine A. Emans passed on to the joyous place prepared for her, by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a resident of Edmonds, Washington for more than 50 years, Lorraine enjoyed watching the sunset over the Olympics, visiting the beaches, parks, and strolling the neighborhood. She attended both Esperance Baptist Church and Edmonds Presbyterian Church and was a member of the Eastern Star.
Lorraine was a beloved and faithful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Twice widowed, she is preceded in death by the father of her children, George E. Johnson; and her second husband, Marvin L. Emans, whom she was married to for 36 years. Her daughters, Sue Johnson, Sheryl Carroll and Darlene Armes and their families, survive her.
Lorraine enjoyed her youth along the coasts of Oregon and Washington, graduating in 1944 from Weatherwax High School in Aberdeen, Wash. After her husband Marvin died in April of 2012, Lorraine chose to spend her remaining days with her daughter, Sheryl and family in Arlington, Texas where she received wonderful and loving care from her daughter and the hospice workers of VITAS.
Arrangements are being made in honor of Lorraine, for a private gathering of family and friends.
She will be interred at Acacia Memorial Park & Funeral Home in Seattle, Wash.
