Lorraine graduated from Evander Childs High School and Hunter College. She also earned a Master of Science in Education from Queens College in NY. She enjoyed a successful and rewarding career as a junior high school math teacher in the NYC school system for 25 years.

She is also survived by two beloved grandchildren Julia Coral Krimsky Kee and Laura Rose Krimsky Kee as well as several nieces and nephews.
Dundee, as she was affectionately known, will be remembered as a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, mentor and a terrific cheerleader and supporter of all the activities and endeavors of her friends and family members. She was a regular presence at her grandchildren’s sporting, scouting and performing arts events.
Her family would like to thank the wonderful doctors and staff at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for their excellent care and compassion as well as her aides – Slivia, Terri, Sarah, and Maggie – who helped her navigate the final years of her life.
