Lorraine was born on March 5, 1941, the daughter of Earle and Mildred (Cook) Noble.
She graduated from Knox Memorial School in 1959 and from the House of the Good Samaritan School of Nursing in 1962 as a registered nurse. Her clinical nursing included 5 months in New York City and 3 months at the hospital in Ogdensburg.
Lorraine worked in the office of Dr. Finnerty in Watertown before employment at Alice-Hyde Hospital in Malone. She began working at the House of the Good Samaritan in 1974 and retired from Samaritan Medical Center in 2003.

Lorraine is survived by her two sons. Timothy E. and Brenda A. Roberts of Copenhagen. Thomas C. and Angela M. Roberts of Watertown; her six grandchildren, Rebeka, Justin, Emma, Colton, Donald, and Noah. She is predeceased by her parents and a brother, E. Laurence "Larry" Noble.
