Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
After moving to Lynchburg from Summerfield, FL. in January, 2019, Lorraine Mary Bolton, 93, died May 15, 2019. She was the wife of the late Arthur Wade Bolton for 59 years.
Born October 5, 1925 in Taylor Falls, MN, Lorraine was a daughter of the late Albert Amundson and the late Grace Whitehead Amundson.
Lorraine is survived by her daughter, Linda Kay Zeff and her husband David, of Lynchburg, Son-in-law, Steve Chicantek, Marietta, GA. and grandchildren, Stacy Wilson (Kevin) Rustburg, Jenny Lockhart (Melvin), Shelby, NC, Matthew Chicantek (Jennifer), Medina, TN, Laura Schuchart (Ron), Apex, NC, Kevin Zeff (Elzbieta), Christiansburg and Erika Luther, Longview, WA. She was great grandma to Tyler and Ryan Schuchart, Viktoria Zeff, Ava, Isaac, and Judah Luther, Ashlyn and Brady Wilson, Kylie, Kennedy, Kade, Kole, Kerrington, Koen, Kreed and Kourtlyn Lockhart, and Madison, Morgan, and Marleigh Chicantek. She is also survived by sisters-in-law, Shirley Amundson and “Corky” Amundson in MN, and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband and her parents, Lorraine was preceded in death by her daughter, Mary Barbara Chicantek and all of her siblings; brothers, Larry, Ray, Norm and “Bud” Amundson, and her sister, Carol Marmon.
Lorraine enjoyed music from her youth and played guitar, then exclusively piano. She played for her own enjoyment, but the whole family enjoyed singing Christmas carols around the piano every year. She loved reading, especially historical novels, and keeping up with current events and the latest fashions. She also loved to travel.
Memorial contributions may be sent to Fairway Christian Church in Summerfield, FL. This was her church family, which continued to visit her faithfully since Arthur died, even though she was rarely able to attend.
Special thanks and appreciation go to Maria Egipciaco, Wildwood, FL for her dedicated and sacrificial care for Lorraine beginning 15 years ago when she had a stroke, and to Maria’s granddaughter, Crystal Aguirre who cared for her this past year and a half, making it possible for her to continue to have her valued independence.
And a heartfelt thankyou to the staff at Bentley Commons and the hospice team from Senior Independence of Westminster Canterbury for their loving care during her last days.
Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
