Lorraine, 98, and a resident of Natchitoches, passed away Monday, Jan. 3, 2022.  She was born Oct. 18, 1923, to J.L. Cutright and Maude Emma Veuleman Cutright in Marthaville.

She was a graduate of Marthaville High School and upon graduation joined the U.S. Navy. Lorraine served her country at the LA Ammunition Plant near Minden and was honorably discharged in 1944. She was so very proud of her patriotic duty that she provided to her country during World War II and was an active member of local VFW for many years to follow.  Upon her discharge, she married Bill Ebert, a veteran of the U.S. Marines, and they began their life together in Natchitoches.

Lorraine held the greatest job title of all, she was a homemaker to her husband and children. She fearlessly loved her family and was a great protector of them.  A great woman of faith, she enjoyed worship at Calvary Baptist Church of which she was a long-time member.  She will forever be remembered for being a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill Ebert; an infant daughter, Charlotte Gail Ebert; a grandson, Billy Todd Voss; and her siblings, Jearldine Cutright Patrick, Don Cutright, Vivin Cutright and Paul Gene Cutright.

She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Ebert Voss; son, Grady Ebert; granddaughter, Angela Voss; as well as numerous nieces and nephews of which none was closer than Daniel Ebert, who she thought of as a son.

Those honored to serve as pallbearers include Daniel Ebert, Lowell Ebert, Wes Ebert and Bailey Ebert.
