Lorraine LaMarco Valvo
She previously worked at McKellor Drugs, and was a communicant of St. James Catholic Church.
When Lorraine wasn't working, she enjoyed looking after her grandchildren, which was quite often.
Spending time with her cousin, Dolly Vicario meant as much to her as spending it with the sister neither ever had. Lorraine and her husband took numerous trips to Las Vegas with Dolly and her husband. Never one to take numerous trips but the Vegas trips were memories in her later years that kept her going.
At home it would not have been home without her beloved dog, "Penny" and Sassy and Molly before her. They were always at her side and they gave her unconditional love.
She is survived by her husband, Angelo Valvo, whom she married Nov. 20, 1948, in St. James Catholic Church: three daughters: JoAnn (Richard) Farrell, Jamestown, Judy Barone, Erie, Pa., and Jackie (Greg) Molisani, Lockport, N.Y.; five grandchildren: Anthony C. (Susan) Barone II, Jamestown, Jennifer Barone, Orlando, Fla., Nathaniel L. (Megan Bailey) Barone III, Williamsville, N.Y., Michael G. Molisani, Boston, Mass., and Lauren E.
