Lorraine Price Kahan passed away peacefully on Friday July 26, 2019, in Antioch, California, after a series of strokes. She was born July 30, 1935, in Deltaville, Virginia, daughter of deceased Lionel Price and Agnes White Price. She graduated from Middlesex High School in 1953 and went to work for the West Point Paper Mill. She met her first husband, Jack Andresen, when he was stationed in Deltaville during the Korean War, and they were married at Clarksbury Church in 1955.
After moving to California they had two children, which survive her, Mark Andreasen, and Victoria Andresen Grey. The family moved to Connecticut in 1967, where Lorraine became employed as a secretary and office manager at Kahan, Steiger, and Associates, a CPA firm.
Lorraine and Robert Kahan, now deceased, were married in 1981 and resided happily in Stamford, Connecticut for many years. After retirement they moved to Lancaster, Virginia where they enjoyed gardening, boating on the rivers around the Chesapeake, and traveling the world. She moved back to California in 2013, where she enjoyed socializing and cultural outings with old and new friends in Brentwood, as well as nearby family.
Besides her children she is survived by her stepchildren Louise Kahan Whelan, Claire Kahan Schendel, and Adam Kahan, as well as grandchildren Jane Andreasen, Denis Whelan, Ketty Andreasen, Alec Grey, Emmet Whelan, Rian Andreasen, Azel Kahan, Sonia Schendel, Gretchen Andreasen, and Anita Mae Kahan. She is also survived by her brother Leon Purnel Price and nephews Keith Price and Gregory Price, all of Deltaville.
A lifelong lover of animals, she is survived by her beloved Tibetan Terrier Maggie, who is now living with Vicki and her dog Bronte.
A graveside service will be held at 11:30am Saturday August 3, at Zoar Baptist Church Cemetery, Ball Park Road, Deltaville. Immediately afterwards all are invited to join the family in celebration of her life at The Tides Inn, King Carter Dr., Irvington.
