Lorraine F. Bolam

August 3, 1940 — December 28, 2023


Lorraine Francis Bolam passed away peacefully in her home in Lincoln,Mi on December 28, 2023 at the age of 83. She lived a full life surrounded by dear family and friends.


Lorraine was a devoted mother and grandmother, often bragging about her family to anyone who would listen. She was also an avid crocheter who loved spending time making Lapghans for the veterans. The Detroit Tigers made her both the happiest woman, and the most frustrated all at once. You’d often catch her saying “those darn Tigers are not good for nothin’ this year”. Her ranch, lovingly known as Fish Creek, was her happy place where you could find her strolling around outside barefoot in the garden. Most importantly, she was a woman of strong faith in Jesus Christ. She never lost sight of her faith even in her last days.


She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Thomas Bolam; Son, Gregory Bolam; siblings, Frank (Marilyn) Matusik, Jim (Gwen) Matusik, Gloria (Art) Lauzon, Joe Matusik, and Billie Matusik; and parents, Jacob Matusik and Joanna Ziolkowski . She is survived by her brother Donald (Sandie) Matusik and loving children Perry (Kara) Bolam, Todd(Lisa) Bolam, and Laurie (Jeffrey) Moll. She was a grandmother known as Busia to 10 grandchildren, (Jackie Walker (Nathan), Paul (Angi)Rauhauser , Amber Reno (Rob), Kyle (Lauren)Bolam, Josh (Chelsea) Moll, Jacob Bolam, Jason (Jenna)Moll, Shelby (Josh)Bolam, Sarah (Vanier)Joseph, and Jordan (Alexis)Moll) and great grandmother to 13 with a 14th on the way.

She was dearly and deeply loved and will be dearly missed.

Funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date.


”I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.“

‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ ‭NIV‬‬
