Following high school, Lorraine began working for Sentry Insurance. She started in the local Stevens Point office; transferred to Chicago; and later returned to the Stevens Point location. After her marriage, Lorraine devoted her life to family. During that time, she began a home antiquing business, in addition to selling holiday baked goods during the Christmas season. Lorraine later became employed at Hal’s Red Owl in the deli department, and subsequently returned to Sentry Insurance as a mail room organizer. She later retired.
