Born in Whitehall, NY, she was the daughter of the late William and Hazel (Brayton) Michael. Lorraine was a graduate of the Schenectady school system and went on to continue her education at the Brady School of Nursing becoming an LPN. She worked several jobs prior to becoming a homemaker, most proudly being an LPN at St. Clare’s Hospital in Schenectady. Lorraine married her cherished husband Francis “Frank” Sosnowski in 1958. Once her family was grown, Lorraine helped at the family business, Mayfair Jewelers as well as running her own daycare center in her home. She enjoyed volunteering at Ellis Hospital’s psych ward, YMCA and St. George’s Episcopal Church in Schenectady where she was also a member. She was also named “Glenville Women of the Year” from the town of Glenville. Lorraine was a kind natured woman taking care of many people in her life. She will be remembered for her generous spirit. Above all, Lorraine treasured the time she was able to spend with her family.
