She was baptized June 1, 1931, and confirmed March 25, 1945, at Cyrus Lutheran Church.  Lorraine grew up and attended school in Cyrus.  On September 4, 1948, she was united in marriage to Donald Lindor.  Following their marriage, the couple started farming near Cyrus until 1954, when they moved to their farm place south of Chokio.  In 1995, Don retired from farming and he and Lorraine moved to Morris.  Don passed away February 2, 2014.  Lorraine continued to live at her home in Morris until February of 2021 when she moved to The Legacy.

She was very involved in church activities and enjoyed visiting shut-ins at the nursing home.  Lorraine loved to make people laugh and was a jokester, often laughing at herself.  She was very close to her sisters and enjoyed visiting and spending time with them as much as she could.  Lorraine will be remembered as being a caregiver, the best mother and grandmother, and a great role model.
