Lorraine Kimmel
Lorraine started the Vashon Island Sewing Retreat. Having a passion for sewing all her life and having owned the Plaza Fabrics store on Vashon Island, she became a founding board member of the Seattle Chapter of the American Sewing Guild. She talked the Sewing Guild into sponsoring a sewing retreat on Vashon Island, but before the first retreat in 1984, a change in the Guild's national policy caused the Seattle Chapter to disband. Lorraine kept the retreat alive by personally taking over the project. Shortly there after, Lorraine brought Camp Burton in as a co-sponsor.
...
Lorraine had a flare for colors and styles, sewing her own clothes from an early age. Later, she concentrated on crafts, dolls and quilt projects, combining flashy new fabrics with the colorful stash left over from the closing of her fabric store, which she owned with her sister-in-law Sally. She was an active member of both the doll and quilting clubs on Vashon, plus part of a small group of island sewers who make hundreds of lap quilts for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center patients. She will always be known for her unusual soft sculptures which she sold on consignment and her colorful, indivudual sweatshirt jackets, that she wore everywhere.

Over the years since then, many retreat instructors and attendees have pitched in to make the retreat the cooperative effort it is today. Gradually Lorraine handed the directorship over to her daughter Penny. We will miss her greatly.

Lorraine Kimmel - You'll Always be smiling in our Hearts
The Casket Party...
Lorraine had told her children that she wanted to be buried in a simple pine casket decorated with flowers, so when her children, Mike, Jim and Penny, saw the casket they knew it would be perfect painted with flowers. Lisa, the funeral director, who had know Lorraine all her life and whose mother had worked as a checker at Lorraine's store, said she had never heard of anyone doing that before but why not. Penny's friend Kari said she knew how to draw flowers. That was all Penny needed to get started calling her mom's friends and daughters-in-law.
...
Somehow everyone felt that Lorraine was orchestrating everything.
It was a healing experience for all of them as they all loved Lorraine so very much. It was so important to come together and do this in love - a very red tent gathering.

Lorraine was buried in her wild pants and her pink high top tennis, with her flower purse and her hand work. She was also wearing Priscilla's hat and the cap that Jace had custom made for her was by her side.
