Lor­raine M. Eg­bert of Ox­ford

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

Lor­raine M. (Schaf­fer) Eg­bert, 57, of Ox­ford, passed away Sept. 22, 2016 in the lov­ing care of her daugh­ter Lau­ren, son Jef­frey, and daugh­ter-in-law Re­becca.

Lor­raine is also sur­vived by her hus­band Wayne, sons James and Sean, grand­chil­dren Abi­gail and Char­lotte, brothers Rus­sell and David, nu­mer­ous cousins, two nieces, and a nephew.

Born on Oct. 19, 1958, Lor­raine was the sec­ond child and only daugh­ter of the late Rus­sell and Phyl­lis Schaf­fer. Lor­raine was a grad­u­ate of Sun Val­ley High School and West Vir­ginia Univer­sity.

Lor­raine had an en­thu­siam for life as con­ta­gious as her laugh­ter and she ded­i­cated her­self to ap­ply­ing that en­thu­siam as a reg­is­tered nurse for 34 years. Her par­tic­u­lar pas­sion was in la­bor and de­liv­ery and over the years, she as­sisted in the de­liv­ery and care of count­less new ad­di­tions to the re­gion.

Lor­raine was a de­voted wife and mother and in her free time, you could find her at a lo­cal yard sale or flea mar­ket in search of an­tique trea­sures. She loved be­ing near the open wa­ter. Her va­ca­tions were spent in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where she would stroll the shore­line in search of sea glass and ex­otic shells.

Lor­raine will be missed and it is with bit­ter­sweet love in our hearts that we say good bye as she is reuinted with her beloved mother and fa­ther. A ser­vice will be held at Sa­cred Heart Church, 203 Church Road, Ox­ford, PA 19363 at 10:30AM on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 7th. In lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily kindly asks you to do­nate to St. Jude Chil­dren’s Re­search Hospi­tal to help end child­hood can­cers.
