Lorraine Odorisio Moulder

September 29, 2021 Oxford, PA Never Failed to Put Her Family First

Lorraine Odorisio Moulder, age 87 of Oxford, PA, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. She was the wife of the late John H. Moulder, who predeceased her in August of 2019.

Born 1934 in Kennett Square, PA, Lorraine was the daughter of the late Nicholas Odorisio and the late Dolores Orlando.

After graduating from high school, Lorraine worked as an operator for Bell Telephone. She then became a teacher’s aide at Greenwood Elementary in Kennett Square.

Lorraine was a parishioner at St. Patrick Catholic Church and spent time volunteering at the church as well. She was a member of the Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the Shanty Shakers RV Club, and a stitching club in Angola by the Bay.

Lorraine enjoyed traveling, rv-ing, camping, finding a good bargain, and spending quality time with her family and friends. She loved to play games, especially dominos and cards. While Lorraine was a good competitor, her family will always fondly remember her impressive knack for bending the rules.

Loyalty and compassion were two of Lorraine’s main principles in life. She was always there for others and never failed to put her family first.

Lorraine is survived by her son, Eric E. Moulder (Camela); her daughters, Cindy Owens (Mike), Donna M. Kelly (Steve) and Lisa McNamara (Shannon); her brother, Nicholas Odorisio; her sister, Frances Brittingham; 11 grandchildren; as well as 7 great grandchildren with another on the way.

  3. To Cindy,Donna,Eric,Lisa,Nick,&Franny,&Families,
    Our deepest condolences to all your family. Lorraine was like another sister, two days younger than my older sister,Marguerite who shared a February birthday. Our families shared a common wall on the farm down from the IACLat time and when your grandmother was ready to have Lorraine my dad, Rocky Perrone drove his old model T, they named King George, from the farm to route #1 to pick up the older Dr. McKinstry who couldn’t travel back to the farm in the high snow, to deliver Lorraine.
    The Odorisio/ DiGuiseppe and Perrone’s shared so many times trough the years Laughing, singing, crying and helping. It’s great that God put us on this earth at the same time to share the sorrows but also the many joys of friends like family.
    Sincerely, Janie Perrone Bazzano

  5. What a beautiful picture of your mom! She was a beautiful lady! Your Mom always had a smile on her face when I was over at your home and her heart 💜 always open and warm and inviting! Being friends of Donna and Cindy, I was visiting often – sometimes walking over from Unionville High School in the afternoon. “Mrs. Moulder” felt like a second mother to me growing up; and she has a special place in my heart forevermore. The last time I saw her was when I was up at Ware Presbyterian Village visiting my parents for lunch. Someone clued me in that she was playing Bridge in the nearby room so I had to go say hi. I had to interrupt and walk in amidst gameplay but as soon as she saw me she stood up and we hugged and she quickly got caught up with the fact that I was living back in the area again. After all the time I’ve been friends with Donna and Cindy, it felt really special that our parents ended up at the same retirement village and got to know each other in their later years. I know your mom is now back with your dad and I know Heaven is a very real place with no pain and heartache. She will continue her work there and watch over you and keep you in her soul until you are all together again. Praise God for His promise of eternal life!
