Folsom Funeral Service

Brackett, Lorraine M.

Lorraine M. Brackett (Alberto), a resident of Norwood for over 40 years, passed away on May 6, 2018 with her family by her side.  Lorraine celebrated her 80th birthday in March.  Born in Boston, she was the daughter of John and Mary (Russo) Alberto.  Growing up in Hyde Park and Framingham, she was a member of the Framingham High School Class of 1955. She was an employee of the New England Telephone Company (aka Ma Bell, AT&T, NYNEX, Bell Atlantic) for many years before her retirement in 1998.  Lorraine spent many happy hours playing board games with her granddaughters. Her best friend was her beloved cat, the late “Tiger,” and she loved her Dunkin Donuts coffee.  She will be sorely missed for her sense of humor and quick wit.

Lorraine is survived by her two daughters, Elizabeth (Liz) Brackett and her husband Thomas (Tom) Radcliff of Vernon, CT and Laurie Dupre and her husband Stephen of Upton, MA, and her siblings, Mary Kolz of New Hampshire and John Alberto of Florida.  She is also survived by her two granddaughters, Robin and Rachel, along with many beloved cousins.

Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 from 2 to 4PM with a memorial service at 4PM at the May Funeral Home, 85 Nichols St., Norwood.  Interment will be private.  In Lorraine’s memory, donations may be made to the Neponset Valley Humane Society, P.O. Box 544, Norwood, MA  02062,

    My sincere condolences to all of Lorraine’s family. I was so sorry I was out of the country and could not attend the services. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend for many years and will be sorely missed.
