Lorraine A. (Gordon) Allaire, 77

 

 

Lorraine A. (Gordon) Allaire, 77, of Mountain Street, went into the arms of her Lord Jesus Christ and her daughter, Laurie A. DiLorenzo, who was waiting for her, on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2008, at Glens Falls Hospital.

 

 

 Born on June 3, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Armeia M. (Rodd) Gordon.

 

 Lorraine married Marcel J. Allaire on Oct. 17, 1959, at Notre Dame des Victories Church in Whitehall, now known as Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church.  She lived in Whitehall all her life.

 

 She worked for Attorney Fred Touchette, the Silk Mill, General Electric, Grant’s Department Store and as a mother and homemaker, which she loved the best.

 

 She was the last of the Gordon Era.

 

 Lorraine enjoyed dogsitting for her daughter Gail’s dog, "Sophie" whom she spoiled everyday.  Her many interests included watching television, puzzle books and bird watching. She enjoyed cooking in her day and watching the horses at Saratoga Racecourse in August and trips to the casinos in Saratoga and Connecticut. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a love of everything that passed her way. During the years her daughters were growing up, she had several other children that were always at the house and she considered them a part of the family.

 

 Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her sisters, Margaret Aubin, Bertha DeLarm, Eleanor Carpenter, Catherine Gordon, Veronica Gebo; her brothers, Joseph E. Gordon, Howard Gordon and Donald Gordon. Other family members include her daughter, Laurie A. DiLorenzo, who died on Feb. 20, 2005 and a nephew, Thomas J. Gordon, and a brother-in-law, Phillip Allaire.

 

 She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Marcel J. Allaire of Whitehall and her daughter, Gail A. Duncan and her husband, Robert of Whitehall; three special grandchildren who she adored, James M. LaGoy, and Christopher and Christin DiLorenzo; her sisters-in-law, Rita Gordon of Whitehall, Edith Gordon of Florida and Helen Gordon of Pennsylvania; a brother-in-law, Glenn Carpenter of Fort Ann and her sister-in-law, Leah Daley of Pennsylvania; Donald and Ramona Allaire of Vermont, Norman Allaire of Vermont, Levi and Bonnie Allaire of Vermont; Rachel and Ralph Towers of Vermont and Raymond Allaire of Vermont; step grandchildren, Scott Duncan, Brad Duncan, and his wife, Carrie, Tarra Garrow and her husband, Joe, and Ross Duncan and his fiancee, Stacee, Keith Duncan and his girlfriend, Stephanie, six step-great-grandchildren, all of Vermont, and many special nieces and nephews who she loved very much.

 

 A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2008 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall, with Rev. Michael Flannery, Pastor, officiating. Interment will be in the spring at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.

 

 Family and friends called at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street, Whitehall on Friday, Feb. 8, 2008 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.

 

 In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in Lorraine’s name to Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, 9 Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall, NY 12887 or Domestic Violence, c/o Catholic Charities, 35 Broad Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801.

 

 A very special thank you to the doctors and nurses at the Orchard Nursing Home in Granville and at the Glens Falls Hospital.  A heartfelt-thanks to all who took special care of her.  Also a thank you to 3 North ICU at the Glens Falls Hospital, who took care of her in her last days and a special thank you to Sister Donna for all your prayers, kind words and support.
