Lorraine M. Bolduc, 80, of Raymond, NH passed away peacefully after a brief period of declining health on November 14, 2022. She was born on October 26, 1942 to the late Robert & Doris (Carmen) Nadeau, and would go on to marry her best friend and love of her life Wilfred “Willie” Bolduc, with whom she shared 22 years of marriage.
Having lived around the country throughout her life, it was not until she settled down in New Hampshire with Willie when Lorraine truly felt at home. Together they shared a loyal and loving marriage and treated each other with great respect.
Those who knew Lorraine will remember a loyal, good natured and strong-willed woman who persevered through challenging times with a smile on her face. She always loved going to the beach, especially Hampton Beach, or going to see the Continentals perform. She also loved a good Elvis song and will forever love her 2 cats that she leaves behind. Above all else, Lorraine loved her family immensely, as she was always at her best when surrounded by those who she loved. She will be dearly missed this holiday season by all whose lives she touched.
Lorraine is survived by her three sons Shawn, Jeff & Troy Schwotzer; sister Christine Gainey; brother Ricky Smith and beloved extended family and friends.
A celebration of Lorraine’s life will be held on Saturday, November 19 from 1 PM – 3 PM, with a service beginning at 2 PM, at Phaneuf Funeral Homes, 243 Hanover St. Manchester, NH. All are welcome to attend.
