Lorraine Eva McNeill 1920 2018

Obituary of Lorraine McNeill
Lorraine Eva McNeill was born June 25, 1920 in Angel’s Camp, California. She was the third daughter of Joseph Zwinge Sr. and Clara Zwinge. Her childhood was spent in San Andreas where her dad was the local sheriff and her mother was a homemaker. She had three sisters, Velma, Phyllis, and Barbara, and one brother, Joseph “Sonny” Zwinge Jr. At 97 years, she was the last of her siblings.
She met James “Mac” McNeill in Texas and they married on August 17, 1948. He was an officer in the United States Army and she was an active member of the Officers’ Wives’ Club.
They lived in California, Texas, Japan, Okinawa, Georgia, Kansas, and finally Washington State. Mac retired from the Army at Fort Lewis and the family remained in the state. In her civilian years, she volunteered by regularly donating to the blood bank. They also proudly fostered 14 children; she loved babies.
Lorraine was a homemaker who dedicated her life to her family. Between the two of them they had five children, “his, hers, and ours” she’d say: Lawrence “Dino” Arcuri, Loren “Doug” McNeill, Ann Pinkerton, James McNeill Jr., and Marla Jean McNeill (Gisi).
Lorraine was an excellent cook who loved magazines, flowers, and puzzles. Traveling was in her blood, and once Mac retired they took several cruises. They shared many adventures in their 60+ years.
After Mac passed in 2007, Lorraine stayed with family members. When her health began to fail, she moved to a small care facility in Port Orchard. Everyone enjoyed her sense of humor and beautiful smile. Grannies Place treated “Miss” Lorraine with much love and dignity and our family is forever grateful. On March 18th she passed away peacefully, joining Mac, Baby Joe, and the Zwinge family.
