She was the fourth of eight children, 5 boys and 3 girls. She graduated from Thrasher High School in 1935. Loraine worked in Booneville living at a local boarding house when a young trucker stopped for the night. His name was Victor Berry currently residing in Jasper, Alabama working for a tanning company. On January 11, 1940, Loraine and Victor were married in Booneville, Mississippi and moved to Jasper where they shared a small duplex with another newlywed couple, Erbin and Malbert Gardner. Victor and Erbin were first cousins and these two couples would enjoy a lifelong friendship, the Berry’s eventually having five sons and one daughter and the Gardner’s having four sons and one daughter. While in Jasper, two sons were born to Victor and Loraine, Thomas and Glenn. Soon afterward, Victor moved the family to the vicinity of Academy Church in the Molloy Community 7 miles west of Vernon. Here, they would reside the remainder of their lives rearing their children on a 40 acre farm and supplementing their farming income with trucking, scrap iron, and junk batteries.
