Lena Lorraine Jones ’49

The youngest of three sisters, Lorraine spent her early years on the Oregon coast. The family relocated to Portland, where Lorraine graduated from Jefferson High School. After attending Reed, she had a long career with Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Company, retiring in 1982. Lorraine’s love of animals led to a lifetime dedicated to the rescue, care, and placement of cats to loving homes through the Animal Rescue and Care Fund. She had a passion for books, and her extensive library was a source of pride. She was an accomplished pianist who loved opera and symphony, and, like her father, was an inveterate record keeper, making entries every day. Her neighbors in Northeast Portland’s Sabin neighborhood admired her quiet dignity and impeccable propriety, because Lorraine was a creative woman with a unique way of expressing herself.
