Lorraine Pomerance, 93, a native of Atlanta, passed away peacefully in her sleep Monday, June 29, 2015. The daughter of Nan and Jack Wilensky, both of blessed memory, she was preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Dr. Elliott Pomerance; a daughter, Dale Gillett; and a brother, Edwin Wilensky. Lorraine is survived by daughters Jill Linfert (Mike) and Nancy Eypel (Arthur), son-in-law Dr. Bruce Gillett, grandchildren Brent (Laura) and Brian (Jen) Gillett, great-grandchildren Will, Oliver, Lucy, Silas and Rose Gillett, and brother Larry Wilensky.
Lorraine spent over 20 years working alongside her husband Elliott in his optometry practice in Buckhead. She enjoyed taking cruises with friends and family and trips to the beach in Florida to visit her daughter Nancy, and she treasured her mother-daughter trips with Dale, Nancy and Jill to San Francisco, Santa Fe, Las Vegas and New York. Her unconditional love and devotion to her family were the central part of her life. She was brave, compassionate, caring and kind to everyone who crossed her path, and her lifelong commitment was showing others how truly important they were to her.
