Lorraine Marie Graffato Prestenbach passed away on Saturday, December 31, 2016 at the age of 51. She was the cherished wife of the late Thomas Prestenbach. Loving mother of Hulen Martin (Cynthia) and Brandon Martin (Latoyia). Daughter of the late Henry and Lorraine Contranchis Graffato Jr. Devoted sister of Allen Gibson (Pat), Loretta Wehmeyer (Elmer), Henry Graffato and Jules Graffato (Theresa). Proud grandmother of Jacob, Kryste, Gracie, Braleigh, Bella, Jonathan and Adam. She is also survived and fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
Lorraine was born in New Orleans, LA and was a lifetime resident of St. Bernard Parish where she was a longtime volunteer with the Disabled American Veterans, Chapter 36, in Arabi, LA. Where she wasn’t caring for our brave veterans, she could often be found cheering for the Saints. She was well loved and will be forever remembered as a loving and loyal wife, mother, grandmother and sister, who loved time spent with her friends and treasured her family.
Services will be private.
St. Bernard Memorial Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
