Our Beloved Mother, A. Lorraine (Smith) Gregory passed away January 11, 2019. She grew up in Healdsburg, Ca, where the two orange trees that she planted still stand in front of the house her father built. She studied music and accounting. When she moved to the bay area in the 1950’s, she met her husband, Norris, when he came into Bank of America in Daly City and Lorraine was the Merchant Teller. Together, they moved to Santa Clara County, started their family and owned and operated Gregory’s Pharmacy in Mountain View and Los Altos for over 40 years. Very often you would see them working together in the Pharmacy or in the Vineyard in her later years.
