Lorraine H. (Egger) Madonna, age 85, crossed the rainbow on Monday, October 26, 2020 after a long illness, with her family by her side.  Born in Brockton on February 19, 1935, she was the daughter of the late John H., Jr. and Gertrude M (Cobb) Egger.

Lorraine was a 1954 graduate of Brockton High School and a graduate of Chandler School for Woman while she resided in Brockton. In 1959 she moved to Lakeville, where she raised her family. She was a former secretary at the Cardinal Cushing General Hospital for many years.  In 1998 she moved to her parent’s cottage in Onset, that she loved hosting a 4th of July gathering at every year.

Lorraine was an avid reader, enjoyed Hallmark movies, Animal Planet, the Discovery Channel, doing word search puzzles, Dairy Queen, shopping, trying out new restaurants, Puff tissues, saving coupons and articles for other people, jokes on popsicles sticks and loved baking but most of all she loved spending time with her family.

She is survived by a daughter, Mary (Madonna) LaFountain and her late husband Roger of East Freetown; three sons, Arthur Madonna Jr. and his wife Amy of Lakeville, Anthony Madonna of Lakeville and Ft. Myers, FL and Mark Madonna Sr. and his wife Marie of Raynham; eight grandchildren, Jason, Brian, Rachel, Tony, Mark Jr., Alisha, Arthur III “AJ” and Megan; fourteen great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. She was the sister of the late John Egger III and Walter Egger.

Her visitation will be held on Sunday, November 1, 2020 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM in the Dahlborg-MacNevin Funeral Home, 280 Bedford Street, Lakeville.  In honor of Lorraine, “gram”, “GG”, the family would be delighted to have her guests wear purple as it was her favorite color. Due to current occupancy restrictions, please be mindful that guests may have to wait outside while others pay their respects. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Lorraine’s honor may be made to Beacon Hospice, an Amedisys Company, 182 North Main Street, Fall River, MA 02720.

Lorraine and I work together at Cardinal Cushing for 10 years. She was a wonderful person, with a great sense of humor, She was very helpful to me in working in very large food service. I could always count on her to help me out. Always smiling and caring. Sorry for your loss.
