April 30, 1932 - Oct. 28, 2018
Lorene F. Soares passed away peacefully at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital on Oct. 28, 2018.
She was the wife of the late Joseph Sr.; mother of Susan (Stephen) Taylor, Joanna, Joseph Jr., the late Jane Ann, and David (Jessica); grandmother to Matthew (Michalina), Joseph, and Katherine; great-grandmother to Mason; loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.
Born in Crab Orchard, Kentucky, on April 30, 1932, Lorene, along with her husband Joe and their two eldest children, became an Island resident in 1957. Special memories included her work with Junior Bills football and the Golden Age Center, where she was employed for several years, and of the many neighborhood children who filled her days with joy and laughter.
Lorene's children would like to express their gratitude to the many family members, friends and neighbors who were a special part of their mother's life. Your friendship, love and support throughout the years brought much comfort and joy. It is greatly appreciated.
The family members would also like to offer their thanks and appreciation to the physicians, nurses and staff at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital for their dedication, loving care and support.
Private services and interment will be held in Kentucky at a later date.
