Lorraine Burgess

March 10, 1950 — April 23, 2022

Lorraine Lynn Burgess, 72 passed away on April 23, 2022.

Lorraine was born into a loving home surrounded by family and lifelong friends. Lorraine exuded charisma, athleticism and was outrageously funny from a young age. These qualities held true throughout her life. From her grad school years through high school she gained lifelong friends and her one true love. After high school, she went on to work for Merril Lynch where she had an incredibly successful career of 42 years. During this time she was an avid bowler, horseback rider, and loyal college friend.

Lorraine was predeceased by her mother and father, Irene and Edwin Fox, and her brother Gregory Fox.

She is survived by her devoted husband, James Burgess; her four siblings and their spouses; nine nieces and four nephews; three great -nieces and five great-nephews.

Lorraine was loved and cherished by everyone she met. Her ability to lead with patience, humility, and discipline proved to influence not only her family but everyone in her life, making her truly extraordinary.

Lorraine will be eternally loved and missed.
