Lorraine Genevieve (Scott) Abel. Born August 10, 1931 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Alice and Charles Scott. She had a steadfast faith in God, and as a Christian, Lorraine believed in her Salvation and gave her glory to God. At the young age of 31, she was widowed with six children. By God’s plan, Lorraine went on to college at the University of North Dakota and received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Her personal conviction of always improving on her life, and to be a good contributor to society, Lorraine continued her education and earned her Master’s degree in Counseling. Upon completion with her studies, Lorraine returned to the Warroad Area, and worked for Glenmore Recovery and Marvin Windows as a family and substance abuse counselor.
