Obituary of Lorraine Barker

Lorraine was born on July 9, 1947 in Philadelphia, PA. Her parents (deceased) were Leo and Anna Mae Smith. Lorraine spent much of her childhood in Philadelphia and the family later moved to Erial, NJ where she resided most of her life.

Lorraine was retired after having worked for over three decades at State Farm Insurance Company.

Lorraine was a Christian woman serving her community locally and abroad helping others and spreading the word of Jesus.

She was an exceptional cook and baker hosting family and friends for holidays and special occasions.

Lorraine loved to read and passed that love to her children and grandchildren.

She was extraodinarily devoted to family and her passing will leave a space that can never be filled.
