Lorraine Hartl Conant, 87, of Kenner, Louisiana, passed away peacefully on August 1st, 2023, at The Chateau Living Center. Lorraine, known by her children and grandchildren as “Lolly,” loved and valued her family more than anything. She loved staying up-to-date with relatives and was always so very proud of everyone’s achievements no matter how small.
Born on May 25th, 1936, to John Joseph Hartl and Hazel Hartl, Lorraine was a native of Hartford, Connecticut, an alumni of UCONN, and a nurse for many years. Eventually Lorraine moved to New Orleans, Louisiana where she spent several decades working in sales before she retired and dedicated her time to raising her granddaughter, Rachel. She later moved to Elizabeth City, North Carolina where she resided for many years before moving back to New Orleans.
She was a proud mother to four sons, John King (sp. Margaret King), James King, Richard King and late Mark King. She was a grandmother to Jamie King, Chris King (sp. Bethany King), and Rachel Marie King. She is also survived by four great-grandchildren, who she was most proud of, Arya, Leila, Talia and Charleigh Michelle. She is also survived by her brother Michael Hartl (sp. Cherie Hartl), niece Kelly Gomes, and nephew Kevin Hartl.
Lorraine will be laid to rest in St. James Cemetery, 368 Broad Street, Manchester, Connecticut 06040 on November 11th, 2023.
