Lorraine was born to Alfred and Mary Langevin and was raised at Half Moon Lake. Shortly after graduation she taught for three years in a one room schoolhouse. Lorraine married Alphonse Villeneuve in 1952 and they lived in the log house at the Villeneuve homestead. Eventually they built their own house on the farm, where they began raising their family. In 1991, Lorraine and Alphonse moved to Paradise Hill and they continued to help at the family farm. Years after Alphonse’s passing, Lorraine moved to Heritage Homes and then to the Paradise Hill Care Home where she has resided for the past four years.
Lorraine was a lady with many passions and hobbies. She loved spending her time outdoors tending to her yard. When she was living on the farm, she would grow 1500 hills of potatoes. When she was not outside, she would be inside crafting, playing cards or visiting with friends and family. She loved knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, scrapbooking, playing cards, playing bingo, baking, fishing, traveling and cuddling with cats.
