She was born October 27, 1929 in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Aaron D. and Emelie Barnett Weaver. In addition to her parents Lorraine was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 52 years, Robert Terence McDowell, who died in 2007.
Lorraine is survived by her Blakes Chapel Advent Christian Church family that she dearly loved. It is noted that Lorraine was an excellent Sunday school teacher: she taught for many years. She was also active in Woman’s Home and Foreign Mission Auxiliary.

She toured with the USO in the far East following the Korean Conflict. She was an avid golf player and excellent at cross stitching, making many beautiful items. Her 91 years were well lived, full of joy and giving.
