April 7, 1929 - April 22, 2020
Lorraine (Edmunds) Llewellyn, age 91, of Murrysville and a Scranton native and loving mother of six, passed away Wednesday at Redstone Highlands Senior Care in Murrysville, after an illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Edward Llewellyn, Jr., on February 18, 1973.
Born in Scranton on April 7, 1929, and daughter of the late Raymond and Helen (Speicher) Edmunds, Lorraine was a graduate of the former Scranton Central High School. She went on to raise her family for fifty years living in Plum Borough, before moving to the Redstone Highlands community in Murrysville.
Lorraine greatly enjoyed time with her children and grandchildren and liked nothing more than “fussing” over them. Before her failing health and diminished eyesight she enjoyed cooking holiday and Sunday dinners – and always made the best gravy!
Lorraine was an avid Pittsburgh Penguins fan, even though she couldn’t follow the puck. She enjoyed her time at Redstone, especially so many kind residents and staff, and always looked forward to her Monday aerobics and a Wednesday night bingo. She will be dearly missed.
She is survived by her children, Edward Llewellyn, III, of Murrysville, Barbara Gray of New York, Cheryl Llewellyn of Pittsburgh, Mary Ann Saikaly and husband Robert of Plum, Sally Ann Moore and husband Todd of Mt. Lebanon and JoAnn Novak and husband Al of Trafford; her sister, Judy Lomeo of S. Abington Twp.; five grandchildren; four great grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.
A son, Richard Charles Llewellyn; and siblings, James Edmunds and Marion Rempe, also preceded her in death.
Her family would like to sincerely thank the entire staff of Redstone Highlands for the amazing care taken of Lorraine throughout her three-year stay.
Private funeral services will be from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with burial to follow at Milwaukee Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Lorraine’s name to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank c/o 1 N Linden St, Duquesne, PA 15110.
