Lorraine Jarnot was born on November 9th, 1925 to Stanley and Cecelia (Kedrowski) Bartkowicz (called Lora by the Bartkowicz family.) in Swan River Township. She grew up with 7 siblings and attended the local country school until the 8th grade. On September 25, 1945, Lorraine married John S.

She worked at several sewing manufacturers; Fingerhut, St. Cloud Canvas Co., Munsingwear, and Little Falls Cap Co. She stayed in her home until November 2014 when Alzheimer's/Dementia took over. She moved to the Hyatt House but still wanted to go back home. Before Dementia took over, she enjoyed cutting lawn and planting a garden. She also enjoyed watching soap operas and reading. She was a member of All Saints St. Hedwigs Catholic Church, the Rosary Sodality/Christian Women and the funeral group.
