Lorraine Curry was born May 29, 1936 to Patrick Henry Clarke and Cora Lee Hankins. She was one of ten children; nine of which preceded her in death.

Lorraine attended the public school system in Virginia and attended college at Washington State University. It was there that she earned her degree in Social Work. Lorraine then migrated to New York in the late 50’s to pursue her career. While there she met and married Alvin B.

Lorraine will be most fondly remembered for her love of Bingo.

Her husband Alvin B. Curry; sisters Mary Hankins, Dorthylee Hankins, Marjorie Hankins, Martha Graves, and Alice Barnett; brothers Richard Hankins, Moses Hankins, James Hankins, and Montoque Hankins; and her loving granddaughter Dominique Jamison preceded her in death.
