She was preceded in death by her loving husband Sam Bisanti and cherished son Jim Bisanti; beloved mother of Marty (Dave) Garrison, Susan Bryan, Kristi Bisanti, and John (Lori) Bisanti; loving grandmother to Matt Garrison, Greg (Brooke) Garrison, Bryan (Ally) Garrison, Wendy (Tyler) Young, Katie Bryan, Taylor Bisanti, Kelly Hodge, Sam Bisanti, Emily Bisanti, Christian (Nicole) Cody, and Erin Cody; loving great-grandmother to Stella, Sal, and Annamarie Garrison, Kensley and Jersey Garrison, Keilee, Breyson, Senna, and Porter Young, Jensen Culley, Grace and Charlie Hodge; devoted sister to Carolyn Wiegmann and Lois Richterkessing and sister-in-law Betty Hollrah; and loving aunt and friend to many.

Loraine loved her church and anything she could do to help in any way. She retired from MidTowne IGA after working over 40 years as a checker. Loraine loved golf and playing cards, and especially enjoyed getting together with her friends for 50 years to play Pinochle, as well as Poker with her Poker club. Loraine’s greatest passion was her family, especially her grandkids and great grandkids.

    candle 7My sincere sympathy to the entire Bisanti, Garrison and Bryan families. Loraine always made me feel welcome at events and treated me like I was a part of her family. She was such a jokester, a hoot to be around, and just an awesome lady! She will be missed by so many. I hope all of you find peace and comfort in the wonderful memories of her. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Much Love.

    I knew Whitey for several years as a neighbor and she was always pleasant. Peace and love to all her children, grandchildren and greats grandkids and the entire family. She was surely blessed with a big family and the neighbors were blessed to know Whitey.

    Aunt Loraine was so fun to be around…a favorite memory is when she and Sam (along with Carolyn and George) came to visit Scott and me in Florida — 20 years ago or so. We took the junket to Nassau, Bahamas for the evening and Loraine hit a jackpot! It is comforting to know she is reunited with her Sam and Jimmy. With love to all.

    candle 1Beloved Aunt Loraine was my godmother and my namesake as my middle name is Loraine. I am honored to carry her name forward, for it symbolizes these things to me: a joyful spirit and living life to the fullest, a deep faith in God, unconditional love for family and friends. These are the things Aunt Loraine lived everyday and she was a wonderful example to me. I will miss her so. The whole family is in my thoughts and prayers! Joy
