Lorraine was born and raised in Barnwell, Alberta Canada. She was the only girl in a family of 5 children. Her brothers were fiercely devoted to her all of her life. She lost her father at the age of 4. Times were hard for them. After a time, her mother married Wilburn Johnson, and they blended their families.
She married Reed R Bullock in 1945 and raised 8 children: 2 daughters and 6 sons. They started out on a farm in Taber, Alberta. They moved frequently throughout the years while their family was young, finally settling in Bountiful. She was dearly loved by all her in laws and many were her closest friends. They spent many hours together quilting, cooking, singing and tending to children.

She served a full-time mission in the England Manchester Mission, from 1997-1998. After her mission, she served as Relief Society President at Cornell and served the people there. They loved her very much. They did a lot of service for the Humanitarian Center and she devoted many hours there. She loved the temple and attended weekly for many years.
She lived a life of service, whether it was for her family or those in whom she came in contact with, quietly serving in whatever capacity was needed. She loved unconditionally, never judging, and was a great example to all. She had a great sense of humor, and quick wit. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They loved her too and have many fond memories of their time together.
