I met her at an institution in Edmonton in March 2010...she left one week early ..before the course was finished... on her weekend pass...she never returned...I was going to give her a ride to the mall she wanted to get her hair done...but my vehicle was full...when I saw her she was sober and gentle...a sweet person....but clearly drugs has taken its toll...she had moments where she would laugh and smile; however, I saw a great deal of pain in her eyes......someone at the centre heard her talking about going to Red Deer Alberta.....I hope she gets the help she needs so she can find some peace...

hang in there Lorraine!

we love you, and we had such fun together when life was a bit less complicted and much more pure. Where's all your family?

I'm still in the UK and never went back to Canada as my mom passed away and we buried her back home Lorraine, in Scotland.

Please be safe and try and get a hold of me, Jimmer. God is only a whisper away, and all going well I'll see you soon!

google Bert Gilroy and some of those links will lead you to contact me as well.

Jim.

Just to put things straight. I Paid a crack wh-re pennies for a party. I saw a photo (while in her bedroom) of a beautiful girl on a '83 playboy cover. It was her, no poop. Years and miles of abuse took its toll. what a f--==n waste!

Lorraine although being a January 1983 playmate was never on a cover of a 1983 playboy magazine. You can confirm that fact on this site:

If she's still fighting addiction and struggling with prostitution then we all can only wish her well and that she can recover from her inner demons.

Jeff, thank god Lonnie is alive. I knew her when she worked for me in Calgary at Backstreet in TD Square back in 1978. We became close friends even tho I am about 10 yrs older than her - we had a great mom figure/friend relationship. I was with her for the initial photos taken that resulted in her going to LA to do the Playboy Centre Fold - they were taken at my apartment in Vancouver and Lorraine was staying with me at that time. In fact I visited her at the Playboy Mansion when I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area in late '82 or '83 and she was doing some heavy drugs then. I was so concerned about her especially after she called me from Texas in the middle of the night so stoned, having gone there with some guy. I told her to call me in the morning and have never heard from her again. That was about 1984 or '85. I have tried so many times to try and find her with no results and have been worried sick - so afraid something bad had happened. Please, if you or anyone has any idea how I may contact her please e-mail me at [email protected] Thank you so much.

She was soooo beautiful.. years of drug abuse has taken its toll, but.. wow.. you can still see her beauty in her eyes..

Lonny is a drug addict working the streets of Calgary as a prostitute. You can find her at the drop in center or the mustard-seed both in downtown Calgary. The last time I saw her was 9 months ago. She is dying from her addiction to drugs and will not live much longer I fear.

Lonny is a current friend of mine. She is struggling with a lot of issues but remains the sweet lady I'm sure she has always been. I won't go into details for privacy reasons but I will say she is an incredible survivor a perfect example of human fortitude.

Tell her Jimmer loves her and has been praying and thinking about her for 25 years, I have had the same haunting dream about her for 20 years "always in the same room or place as her but couldn't actually get near her," and then when I found out she had been incarcerated, well, it all made sense.

you'll note it was me who started this thread and search for her.

I will try to see her again when next in Canada, please tell her to hold on life can be wonderful again.

her old friend Jim Glen.

I am so very saddened to hear Lorraine is on the streets and doing Meth.
What a terrible waste. If anyone sees her can you please ask her to get in touch with me at [email protected]
I will call her. She needs to go to another rehab program. Many people don't stay clean the first or even second time around. She deserves another chance. I am so worried about her as no doubt all her friends here are.
The first time I knew she was taking drugs was when I visited her at the mansion and she was rooming with Jake Lamoda's wife who was certainly leading her down the wrong path. I never thought it would end up like this. She needs to know her friends are there for her not just in print but physically.
