Resident of Hollister
Lorraine passed away on December 30th at the age of 84. Born in Anaheim, CA, Lorraine spent the majority of her life in Fremont, CA and later moved to Hollister in 1998.
Lorraine is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Melford Alameda, children Steve Alameda (wife Peggy), Natalie Sana (husband Tom), Craig Alameda (wife Angie) and Tony Alameda (wife Cathy). Lorraine was blessed with nine wonderful grandchildren and eight beautiful great grandchildren.
Lorraine was the heart and soul of the family farming business, TopFlavor Farms, owned and operated by her husband and sons. She followed the growing seasons moving between California and Yuma, AZ as business needed. When not on the farm, Lorraine enjoyed reading, music, politics, baking, sports and all things family. She was a talented singer who sang for many years with the Centerville Presbyterian Choir. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her devoted family.
