Lorraine Papiez, nee Seput, age 90, of Oak Forest, IL, passed away surrounded by her loving family on March 3, 2019 and will now be happily reunited in heaven with her loving husband John. Lorraine was born in Harvey, IL and attended Thornton Township High School. She married John Papiez in 1948.

She is survived by her daughters Patti (Bill) LaMorte and Sherri (David) Banes; grandchildren Brian (Dawn) LaMorte and Jeff (fiancée Pam Wichert) LaMorte; great grandchildren Cadence, Amber and Gianna; her sister Diane Schulthies and many nieces and nephews.

She was very proud of her family. She enjoyed socializing with her many friends, playing the slots at the local casinos and had a passion for dancing! She had an infectious laugh that made the whole room light up that was uniquely hers. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
