  • I just learned of the passing of Lorraine Osmick. I remember her fondly as the mother of my best friend Julie. Mrs. Osmick welcomed me into her home as part of her family during high school and college. I stayed there several times a month and was always there during school days on my way home from school. She allowed Julie and I to take over the kitchen to make cinnamon buns on snowy mornings in Newark and really allowed us to spread our wings in the safe haven of her home.

    Mrs. Osmick was a mother figure to me. She will be remembered as a strong and beautiful woman with a wonderful sense of humor. I regret that I was not a continued part of her life but am grateful for the love she provided to me as a young woman. My sympathy is extended to her daughters whom I also remember fondly.
