Lorraine Carreau, a long time resident of Olathe, Delta and Cedaredge, Colorado, died Thursday, April 24, 2008 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, CO, following a long illness. She was 90.

She is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Jeanne Carreau and Shuhei Sato of Pelham, N.Y., and four grandchildren, Matthew, Camille, Claire and Chloe Sato, all of Pelham; and a son, Mark Carreau of Houston.

Lorraine moved to Cedaredge in the early 1980s with her husband, Dr. Ernest P. Carreau, a physician and surgeon. They enjoyed retirement on Grand Mesa pursuing hobbies, exploring the countryside and making new friends. Declining health led them to a smaller home in Delta, where Lorraine was a resident of Crossroads.

Following Dr. Carreau’s death in 2003, Lorraine moved to Olathe, where she became a resident of the Colorow Care Center.

Lorraine considered Colorow her final home and those who cared for her and her fellow residents among her dearest friends. She cherished her membership in St. Luke’s and the fellowship it offered.

She was born in Wichita, Kansas, where she grew up. She taught school in rural Kansas. Lorraine and Ernest were married in 1941. She worked to put Ernest through training at the University Of Kansas School Of Medicine in Kansas City, KS. She supported his service in the U.S. Navy as a medical doctor. Together they raised a family in Wichita.

Lorraine studied foreign languages and is at Wichita State University and pursued a personal interest in hand crafts. A devoted mother, she volunteered her time to the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, to many classrooms for her children as well as the Head Start program in Wichita.

Lorraine and Ernest chose Colorado and the Western Slope for retirement because of its beauty. As residents they found much more, new friends, community and spiritual peace.
