Lorrine Boston

October 29, 1943 – April 22, 2013

 

Lorrine Boston was born in Darden, North Carolina on October 29, 2013, to the late Eddie and Mercy Dee Boston. She departed this life on April 22, 2013, at home, 274 Chauncey Street, Brooklyn, NY.

Lorrine was a 1961 graduate of P. S. Jones High School and furthered her education in New York with the Board of Education, Brooklyn, and worked until she retired in
