Obituary for Lorraine C. Berube

GRAFTON: Lorraine C. Berube, 88, passed away peacefully on November 28, 2023, at her residence at Southgate of Shrewsbury. She is predeceased by her husband of 64 years, Leonard J. Berube. She is survived by her children Celeste Allain and her husband, Richard, of Grafton, Carl Berube of Franklin, Virginia, John Berube and Christine Graham of Skowhegan, Maine, and Susan Schroeder and her husband, Carl, of Millbury, Massachusetts, along with her grandchildren Matthew, Tiffany, Katherine, Sarah, Noah, Orrin, Anthony, Nicole, and Jarrett, and her great-grandchildren Sadie, Henry, Leo, and Nolan, as well as many nieces and nephews. Lorraine was one of twelve children and is survived by her sisters Irene Lopes, Jeanne Pimental, Claudette Moran, Theresa St. Laurent, Denise Berube, Ann Marie Folster, and her brother Richard Folster. She was the sister of the late Reverend John Folster, Norman Folster, Dolores Gossic, and Jacqueline Beaudoin.

Lorraine was born on February 2, 1935, in Fall River, Massachusetts, daughter of the late Eglantine (Allard) and Joseph Folster. After moving to Swansea for a few years, she became a long-time resident of Grafton where she was to spend the rest of her life until moving to Southgate of Shrewsbury, where she was lovingly cared for by Laura’s Guardian Angels during her last year of life. As a Grafton resident, Lorraine was very active in her community. She was a Girl Scout leader and a member of the Women’s Auxiliary at the Grafton American Legion Post 92. She was a member of St. Philip Church.

Lorraine was a lifelong seamstress and maker of many crafts. She made untold numbers of quilts, many of which she gave away because it made her so happy that people would enjoy them. She also taught crafts as a volunteer at the Grafton Senior Center. She became known as the “Mitten Lady” for all of the mittens she made and donated to various charities. She enjoyed many other activities and pastimes, including gardening, canning, baking, reading, and camping, especially at Maple Park in Wareham. She also loved to take long walks.

Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with family, and always made sure everyone had their favorite birthday dessert. She took time and care to make every holiday special, helping to create lasting memories for our family. She was known as Mom or Memere to many that were not her own, including the band that practiced many times in her home. It was part of her love of music, a love shared by her husband. She especially loved listening to singer Harry Belafonte.

Funeral services and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Lorraine’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements are under the care of Roney Funeral Home in North Grafton.
