Lorraine Alice Jarman was born on July 31, 1923, in Doland. She was the daughter of Raymond Jens Baggesgard and Emily Irene Board. She grew up and graduated from Doland High School and continued her education with Cosmetology/Beauty School.
Lorraine enjoyed many years owning her own beauty shop where she met and married her husband of 68 years, Wesley P. Jarman.

Lorraine was a member of the First United Methodist Church. Lorraine loved life, her faith, friends from all over the United States, Eastern Star (Grand Officer), Garden Club, flowers, embroidery, baking (the best chocolate chip cookies), cooking (her infamous potato salad), gardening and above all her loving family.
