Lorraine Marie Fagen

Lorraine Fagen, 59, of Eagle Rock, Mo., went to be with the Lord on Oct. 24, 2017, after a brief battle with cancer.

A Celebration of Life, attended by close family, was held on Nov. 4 at her home in Eagle Rock, Mo.

Lorraine was born in Ventura, Calif., to Leonard Lebow, Sr. and Vivian Cornelius on March 20, 1958.

She met her true love, Daniel Fagen, while working at the China Lake naval base, and they celebrated their love for 32 years. Lorraine retired after 30 years of dedicated federal service as an electronics technician. After retiring, she and her husband, Daniel, moved to Eagle Rock and built their dream home on the lake.

Lorraine had several hobbies including photography, jewelry making, reading, gardening, fishing, camping, hiking, rock collecting and traveling.

While living in Ridgecrest, Lorraine took care of her grandmother Lola Turner and her mother Vivian Cornelius; she continued to do so after moving to Eagle Rock. Lorraine loved family and friends and always put others before herself.

Lorraine’s warm heart, energy and love of life and laughter were infectious. Family and friends enjoyed spending time with her and sharing her love of nature. Lorraine was an amazing mother, grandmother and friend and will truly be missed by all who knew her.

Lorraine is survived by her husband, Daniel Fagen of Eagle Rock; mother Vivian Cornelius of Oklahoma City, Okla.; father Leonard (Linda) Lebow Sr. of Chino Valley, Ariz.; brother, Leonard (Cheryl) Lebow Jr. of Oklahoma City; son William (Jessica) Mathis Jr. of Inyokern; daughter Vivian (Patrick) Browning of Pahrump, Nev., and daughter Sage (Dave) Allen of Beverly, Mass.; and grandchildren Danielle Mathis, Dylan Browning and Lorraine Browning.
