Lorraine Chargin is gone

Lorraine Chargin, longtime boxing promoter with her husband Don, passed away Tuesday in a hospital near their Cambria, California coastal home. Lorraine and Don have been a couple since 1957 and wed for 49 years. “I don’t know what I’ll do without my sweet Lorraine,” said Don. “I can’t stop looking at her picture. The only comfort I have is knowing that my sweetheart is no longer suffering.” Lorraine, 79, had been treated for cancer in recent weeks. Don was inducted into The International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2001 and everyone agreed that Lorraine was unofficially a member of The Hall as well. A memorial service for friends and family will be held in Cambria next Wednesday. She will missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace, Lorraine.
