Lorraine's nickname "Toby" was given to her by her dad at a young age. Lorraine and her family moved to a ranch by Dunning when she was 2-years-old, where she attended country school. Lorraine then attended school in Dunning where she met lifelong friends. During Lorraine's childhood she enjoyed spending time outdoors playing with her cousins.
