Lorraine Suzanne Schiro

October 1, 1953 — May 27, 2024

Long Beach

Lorrie Schiro, age 70, died in her home on the morning of May 27, 2024 surrounded by family.


Lorrie was born in Michigan, but raised on a farm in Ohio, cementing her life-long love of animals.  She moved to New Orleans as a teenager in 1969, and it was there that she met her husband and began raising a family.  In 1988, Lorrie and George moved their family to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to be near the water as they were both beach people.   Family vacations always involved Florida beaches.  Lorrie loved trying new foods and restaurants, but she especially loved her oysters and liver and onions.  She enjoyed attending Jazz Fest and other food and music festivals.    


Lorrie will be remembered for her brutal honesty, irreverent humor, and her foul language. She took great pleasure in saying inappropriate things and watching people's reactions.  Nothing ever shocked her and you could always be sure you could confide in her without judgment.  She always said that rules were made to be broken and it’s important to eat dessert every day.  Lorrie was the most supportive mother and fun grandmother who was known to chase her grandchildren around the backyard pretending she was a zombie who was going to eat their brains.  She will be missed by all who knew her.    


Lorrie had been fighting multiple myeloma for the past 4 years and is grateful to be at peace.  At the moment of her passing, her children were gathered around her and Bob Dylan was playing on the stereo.  The bedroom window was cracked at her request so that her spirit could escape.  She is preceded in death by her husband, George, her parents Arthur and Shirley, and her brother Ted.  She leaves behind her three children Sara, Alana, and Lucas, son-in-law Stefan, and four grandchildren: Caleb, Chandler, George, and Bitty.  Lorrie is also survived by her brother Ron and her sister Julie, who she would want to know that she was “Zorite”, as well as extended family and friends.  She hopes to one day come back as a ragdoll kitten on her cousin Lori Kay’s doorstep.  Funeral services will be private.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to For Pet's Sake Rescue in Long Beach or Alley Cat Allies nationally.
