Lorraine M. (Soucy) Gagnon, 88, of Manchester, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at Villa Crest Nursing Center, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Manchester, she was the daughter of the late Gideon and Yvonne (Benoit) Soucy. A lifelong resident of Manchester, Lorraine was a graduate of the former St. Joseph High School. Lorraine was predeceased by her husband Norman Gagnon, with whom she shared 44 years of marriage, and her sister, Rachel Poulin. She worked many years in food services for Central High School.

A beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Lorraine's family was the center of her life. She cherished time spent with family and many dear friends. For many years, Lorraine and her late husband, Norman, loved to square dance. They also wintered in Florida near her parents and sister, and she summered in Raymond. In her later years, Lorraine enjoyed line dancing, and will be best remembered for her kind heart and love of family.
