A beautiful compassionate person who brought people together with her love and kindness, Mary Lorraine Denison was carried home to the Lord on October 21st.
Born in Cushing OK. March 29, 1949, Lorraine moved to Colorado Springs as a young adult and lived in Cascade the past 38 years. Many were the days of joyful gatherings and laughter with family and friends in her beloved home.
Lorraine passionately worked for decades to advocate and improve the lives of those in the Developmentally Disabled community in Colorado Springs. She loved her purposeful work and her life had a lasting positive impact on many people over the years. She graduated from N.E. Oklahoma State College in three years with a degree in Special Education.
Family, friends, trips domestic and abroad, summers in Maine, and innumerable Colorado adventures were her love along with all of her pups.
Survivors include her husband of 32 years, Blair Nash Denison, adopted son Aaron, brother Gary Deeds, and numerous relatives along with 2 mini Aussies; Hogan and Deeds.
She was preceded in death by her parents Wayne and Doris Deeds, brother Kermit and sister Judy Deeds.
We take great comfort knowing she is now in the arms of the Lord. A Celebration of Life service will be held at Noon on Nov. 9 at Grace & St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Colorado Springs.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to NMDR (National Mill Dog Rescue) in Peyton, CO. and/or The V Foundation (donate.v.org). We love and miss our beautiful Lorraine.
