Lorraine was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on April 23, 1920.  At age 12 she began working with her father, Joseph Trad, in the carpet business.  Together with her brother, James Trad, they started Trad Carpet, which at one time was the largest carpet store in the Milwaukee area.  Later, her husband Bunny Herro and other relatives joined the carpet business.  She and Bunny moved to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin in 1950 and together they raised her four children.  In 1975 Lorraine and her husband took over Trad Floor Covering, running it together until 1997. 

In 2000, her husband having passed away the year before, Lorraine moved to Omaha to be close to her daughter, Kathy Nahas.  Lorraine lived in her own apartment in Omaha until 2018, when she moved to Ridgewood Assisted Living in Bennington, Nebraska.  In 2021 she moved to the Country House in Elkhorn, Nebraska, where she passed away.

    Our sympathy and love from Market Place Chaplains. Lorraine’s son Tom has been a big part of many of our lives. His example to the rest of us Chaplains is certainly the result of his parents investment in him. We thank the whole family for what they have meant to us in our efforts to serve the Lord.

    Dearest Herro family, our deepest condolences and prayers for Lorraine and your entire family. We have so many special memories of her and Bunny since 1998 on 98th Street since she came over and welcomed us with a homemade apple pie! We have always admired and cherished your family’s togetherness and were honored to have been a part of so many special events. We will visit her and Bunny at Holy Cross soon! May God continue to bless you all. Linda and Vince Basile
