Lorraine Kathleen (Lamb) Senkalski, age 75, of Waterford, went home to be with her Lord on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at Saint Vincent Hospital after a brief illness. Born July 7, 1941 in Erie, she was a daughter of the late Frank C. and Josephine M. Hanlin Lamb.
Lorraine grew up in McKean and graduated from McKean High School in 1959. She married the love of her life, John R. Senkalski, on December 26, 1959 and they moved to Waterford where they made their home and raised two daughters.
A longtime and active member of Draketown Christian Church in Edinboro, Lorraine served there as organist for many years and blessed people with her music and dedication. She was a prayer warrior and enjoyed spending time with the Lord in His Word.
In addition to playing organ, Lorraine also enjoyed crocheting, crossword puzzles, reading, and getting together with friends and family. She loved her family and especially enjoyed watching her grandsons grow up and seeing them start families of their own.
Lorraine had a sister, Linda Lamb, a brother, Charles F. Lamb, and a son-in-law, Gary A. Post, all of whom preceded her in death.
Her surviving family members include her husband, John; her daughters, Lisa Daugherty (Carl) and Jan Post, of Waterford; her sister, Patricia Blount Gajewski (Butch); grandsons, David Daugherty (Erica) and Jason Daugherty (Halsey); a great-grandson, Benjamin Lee Daugherty, and a baby boy Daugherty, due to arrive any day, who Lorraine was looking forward to meeting; and many nieces and nephews.
