Tribute & Message From The Family

Lorraine M. (Henderson) Eglody, 72, of Manchester, NH and Hernando, FL passed away in the home of her daughter in Auburn, NH surrounded by her loved ones, after a prolonged and courageous battle with cancer.

She was born in Beverly, MA on November 2, 1946 to Earl and Grace (Clark) Henderson of Hamilton, MA where she grew up with her four siblings. She then met and married her husband of 46 years, Louis M. Eglody and settled in Manchester NH, where they remained until 2004.

In her 20's she worked at the Manchester, NH Merchants National Bank in mortgaging and the first generation of credit cards. In 1976 Lorraine joined her husband in expanding his business, "Lou's Floor Coverings" which they operated together for over 35 years in Manchester and Hooksett NH.

Lorraine's loving and generous nature was evidenced in her volunteer work at the Manchester YWCA, helping other women and underprivileged children, instructing aerobics, and starting the "Shape Up Shop". Lorraine was also very active with the First Congregational Church in Manchester as a Lay Minister, assisting the elderly, and an active member of the "Women's Union".

In 2005 "Louie and Lorrie" built a home in Hernando, FL and Lorraine took a sales position at Accent Tile and Carpet.

She loved the outdoors, her favorite place being her camp on Sebago Lake around the campfire with friends and family. She loved hiking, yard sailing, camping, fishing, yard work, cribbage, scrabble and especially keeping things clean and organized! She was the definition of a "social butterfly" and dearly loved by all that knew her.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Louis Eglody in 2011.

Her family includes two children, her son, Michael Eglody of Hooksett, NH and her daughter, Michele Eglody and her fiancé, George Georgopoulos, of Auburn, NH; four siblings, Earl Henderson Jr. of Lansing MI, Beverly Young and her husband, Paul Young, of West Newbury, MA, Charlotte Henderson of Inverness, FL and Deborah Carmichael and her husband, Dennis, of Lansing; MI, two sisters-in-law, Shari Fedin and husband, Joseph, of Billings, MT and Kristi Eglody of Manchester, NH; and nieces and nephews. Lorraine was also grateful to love and be loved by her close companion, Terry "Max" Sanders during her last years amongst us.

A memorial service was held on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at First Congregational Church, 508 Union St., Manchester, NH. Committal prayers followed at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, 110 Daniel Webster Highway, Boscawen, NH.

We loved the holidays at Walnut st. The quiche, the spinach pies, the ham with the side of Louie's beans. Then there was the pork & sour kraut. Lorries Xmas tree looked like a store window @ Macy's
I'm so proud of all that she did. Moving out of a small storefront into a modern store. She often racked up sales points for free stuff. She was so savvy. She modeled but wasn't afraid of getting dirty. She could name all the birds.
Lorrie was loving, giving and generous.
God bless her family.
God bless her memory.
We will miss her.

May your memory live on in all those who your love and generous nature touched. I could not imagine a life without you as my mother and am so very lucky and proud to be your daughter. I know how hard you fought to be with George and I on our wedding day, but god had another plan for you and that's ok, as I know without doubt, you will be at the alter with dad, by our side. You are my guardian angel and guiding light forevermore. How now brown cow!
