Lorraine was born December 26, 1963 in Silver City to the late Antonio and Julia Vega Artiaga. Lorraine was a very giving and loving person. She lived in the moment with no regrets. Lorraine had a big heart and was very forgiving to all she came across. She also loved her cats very much and found joy in music. Her kids and grandkids were the most important part of her life and she would do anything for them. Lorraine was not one to care for materialistic things and everything she had was always enough. Lorraine loved to sing and dance, there was never a dull moment in her presence. Her jokes and unforgettable laughter will never be forgotten. Lorraine “DeeDee” will be dearly missed.
