My dear mom entered heaven with a shout of victory and joy on her lips. These were her words from a few short weeks ago in a prayer to the Lord. She was a born again Christian, who although being blind and severely deaf reached people through preaching the love of Christ.

Mrs. Lainey was born in Bridgeport July 10, 1947 daughter of the late Frank and Angie Baldissero, and was a Shelton resident for over 35 years.

Friends are invited to attend a graveside service on Wednesday at 10 AM in the Riverside Cemetery 286 River Road Shelton, with her pastor Don Evans officiating. The Riverview Funeral Home, 390 River Rd. has been entrusted with her arrangements.
