Lorraine Angela Surtz

Lorraine Angela (née Baggio) Surtz, devoted wife of the late Bernard F. Surtz, loving Mother to Bernard J. Surtz (Cynthia), Christopher Surtz (Christina), Angela Schneider (Ray), and the late Dana Nesbitt. She is Nonna to Kristen and Annie Nesbitt, and Christian, Louisa, Lianna, and Chiara Surtz, and Great Grandmother and ‘Nonnie’ to little Lorraine Golden.

She was daughter to Giovanni and Angela Baggio, sister to Pierina Bernardi (Tony), Leo Baggio (Christine), and Lillian Farago (Ben).

Our beautiful Mom, Lorraine, was guided to Heaven on March 4th, 2023. Lorraine was surrounded by her children, B.J., Christopher, and Angela, and her eldest Granddaughters, Kristen and Annie. Lorraine passed peacefully in the comfort of her home. She devoted her life to nurturing her family. She was a wonderful wife and Mother, and helped raise three generations.

She was a phenomenal gardener and cook, who demonstrated her love for others by preparing favorite recipes. Lorraine was of Italian heritage, and had mastered many Italian specialties. She also loved all animals, especially her cats and dogs.

Most of all, she prioritized her faith, through the unconditional love she shared with her family and extended family. She was a blessing to all her family and dear friends.
