Maplewood, NJ

Lorraine Kievning, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, has passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on November 24th, 2023. She will be dearly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know her. Lorraine was born on January 24th, 1965 in Paterson, NJ to Alphonse DeMarco and Lorrie (McNeer) DeMarco.

Lorraine had a vibrant personality and a zest for life that was truly infectious. She had a genuine love for people and was known as the life of every party. It was impossible to resist joining her on the dance floor when she would light up the room with her energy and enthusiasm.

As a wife and mother, Lorraine's devotion knew no bounds. She was a loving and supportive presence in the lives of her husband Bill of 36 years and their daughter Alexis. Lorraine's dedication to her family went beyond words - she showed her love through her actions each and every day.

Lorraine also took great pride in creating a warm and welcoming home for her family. A hard worker with an impeccable work ethic, she found joy in keeping her home clean and organized. Her attention to detail was remarkable, and her loved ones could always count on Lorraine's home to be a cozy sanctuary filled with love.

In addition to being an exceptional homemaker, Lorraine had a flair for creativity that she expressed through her hobbies and interests. She had an undeniable passion for arts and crafts and delighted in using her talents to decorate their home for each holiday season. Her artistic touch made every occasion extra special.

Lorraine is survived by her loving husband Bill, their cherished daughter Alexis, her dear father Alphonse DeMarco, sister Terri Mellea, sister Anna Striano, parents-in-law Helene and Bill Kievning, sister-in-law Eileen, brother-in-law Mickey, six nieces, two nephews, four great-nieces, and one great-nephew. Each of these individuals held a special place in Lorraine's heart, and the love she shared with them will endure forever. She was predeceased by her loving mother Lorrie DeMarco in 2023.

As we mourn the loss of Lorraine, let us also celebrate the beautiful life she lived. Her infectious laughter, caring nature, and boundless energy will forever be remembered. She leaves behind a legacy of love and joy that will continue to touch the lives of all those who were lucky enough to have known her.
