Lorraine Veronica Ferrett, 90, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday. She was the widow of Edward Ferrett, who died in 2008.
Born in Scranton on May 13 or 14, 1926 (she never really knew on which date she was born, so she celebrated both dates). She was the daughter of the late Joseph and Stephanie Kobeski Haynos. She attended South Catholic High School and was an accomplished seamstress and homemaker. She created fabulous fashions and home decor for her siblings in her younger days and her children as they grew up. She had a green thumb, as she was able to root and grow anything from the smallest cutting. She was a devout Catholic and spiritual being, always praying for family and friends. She loved all animals, especially her cat, Molly.
As the matriarch of the Ferrett family, she was always so interested in and proud of her children's and grandchildren's accomplishments, of which there were too many to enumerate but all made her smile.
Lorraine is survived by two sons, Dr. Edward Ferrett and wife, Susan, Moscow; and Larry Ferrett and wife, Marilyn, Old Forge; two daughters, Marianne Wowk and husband, Richard, Clarks Green; and Jeanine Marino and husband, Jim, Laflin; nine grandchildren, Daniel and Gabrielle Ferrett, Dustin, Lauren and Ashley Ferrett; Rick Wowk and wife, Sheri; Corey Wowk; Geoffrey Wowk and wife, Traci; Marissa Marino and fiancé, Vincent Budzyn. She also had three great-grandchildren, Madisson and Monroe Wowk, and Vivienne Budzyn. She is also survived by one sister, Dorothy Trotta, Roaring Brook Twp.; and sister-in-law, Jean Schroeder, Maryland; nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by two brothers, Joseph and Walter Haynos, and two sisters Marie Grudzinski and Arlene Lee.
The funeral will be Monday at 9:30 a.m. from the Louis V. Ciuccio Funeral Home, 145 Moosic Road, Old Forge, followed by Mass at 10 in St. Ann's Basilica. Interment, Sacred Heart Cemetery.
