August 21, 1956 - January 2, 2019
Lorraine Garvin, of Kaufman, passed away on January 2, 2019 surrounded by her devoted family. Lorraine was born August 21, 1956 in Lockhart, TX to Homer and Dorothy (Pratt) Harwell, both of whom welcomed her into Heaven along with her sister, Maydene Kuehne. Lorraine was a loving, funny and selfless mom. She had a generous spirit that was immediately seen by all who met her. On Oct. 22, 2000 at Faith Baptist Church in Kaufman, she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior which only enhanced the abundant kindness that she showed to so many. She loved children and teaching them was her passion. She worked at PromiseLand Preschool in Kaufman where her easy smile and outgoing personality endeared her to children, staff and parents. She attended C|Life Church in Forney where she was active and made many lasting friendships there as well. Lorraine enjoyed traveling especially seeing the ocean. She would collect seashells and unique rocks from the beaches and places she visited. Giving to others was always certain and her home made candles that Lorraine made will always be treasured by all she gave them to. She also enjoyed traveling to places that had snow and found the wintry scenery to be beautiful. She also enjoyed fishing having spent many days with her father going to a pond or tank catching as many fish as they could bring home! Outside was Lorraine’s favorite place to be where she could enjoy God’s creation and watch the dragonflies and listen to locusts. Her very favorite time of year was Christmas time because that meant family and friends came together to make many more special memories that will be cherished by each of them. A beautiful woman, inside and out, Lorraine will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. She leaves to celebrate her legacy of unconditional love her son, John Garvin and wife, Amber, of Crandall; daughter, Tamara Garvin of Crandall; grandchildren: Emma, Allison, Anthony and Alyssa; sisters: Marian Becker of Kaufman, Charlean Pickett of Farmersville, TX as well as nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and countless friends near and far. Funeral service will be 2:00 pm Tuesday January 8, 2018 at C|Life Church, 204 FM 1641, Forney, Tx, 75126 with interment to follow at Kaufman Cemetery. Family will receive friends 6:00pm to 8:00 pm Monday, January 7, at Max Slayton Funerals and Cremations.
