Lorraine Bertha (Lortie) Case


Lorraine Bertha (Lortie) Case, 77, of Rehoboth, MA, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 14, 2019 at her home with her beloved family at her side.

Born on December 5, 1941 in Manchester, NH, she was the daughter of the late Arthur Lortie and the late Bertha (Donovan) Lortie.

A graduate of Manchester High School, Lorraine continued her studies in business school and then worked for many years as a Real Estate Agent for Coldwell Banker, for Century 21 Ed Pariseau Realtors, and for Century 21 David Smith Real Estate, before retiring.

A resident of Rehoboth since 1974, she previously lived in Warwick, RI.

Lorraine was outgoing, engaging and creative. An artistic woman, she loved to paint, especially oils on canvas, and to draw. She was an avid gardener who loved flowers, and enjoyed skiing in her younger years. More than anything in life, Lorraine cherished being with her family.

She was the loving mother of Robin L. Berard and Tracey A. Case, both of Rehoboth, MA; the proud grandmother of Leah Cook, Morgan Ruiz, Taylor Berard, and Joshua Case; and the adoring great-grandmother of Trevor Hayden, Keldin Hayden, and Rylen Hayden. Lorraine was the sister of Ronald Lortie of Hooksett, NH, and Russell Lortie, Merrimack, NH, and the late Rudy Lortie, all of whom she loved dearly. She was the former wife and very dear friend of John E. Case Jr. of Taunton, MA.
