Lorrayne Burch

Age 72 of Coal City, Illinois, passed away Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at Morris Hospital.

Born May 9, 1949 in Springfield, Illinois, Lorrayne Marie was a daughter of Joseph and Rose (Hauptman) Seitz. She was raised and educated in Springfield and on September 23, 1967, Lorrayne married Allen Burch in Sacred Heart Church in Springfield.

Lorrayne worked for many years at Mazon State Bank until her retirement. She was a member of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Roman Catholic Parish in Coal City and belonged to the Coal City Area Club. She enjoyed ceramics; was an exceptional baker, and looked forward to her monthly luncheons with the ladies from the bank. Lorrayne was always on the go, and she enjoyed shopping. Recently she found great pleasure in simply taking rides with Al in the Jeep with the top down. One who was always ‘to the point’, Lorrayne was truly a giving person, who had a selfless demeanor and never knew a stranger. She treasured her roles as a wife and mother, and was filled with joy to become a grandmother to her three amazing grandchildren, which were her life. The days ahead will never be the same without Lorrayne here, but she leaves behind a timeless legacy, and her loved ones will proudly carry on in her footsteps.

Survivors include her husband, Allen; two daughters and sons-in-law: Nikole and Ubaldo Herrera and Tracy and Bryan Perino, both of Coal City; three grandchildren: Ryan Herrera, Dylan Perino and Kendall Perino; two brothers-in-law, Charles Burch and Richard Burch, and several nieces and nephews.

Lorrayne was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Joseph; two sisters: Ellen and Christine; her father-in-law and mother-in-law: Eldon and Beulah Burch, and one brother-in-law, George Burch.
