Hazel Lorraine Naig, daughter of Hendrick and Thea (Nelson) Hendrickson, was born April 18, 1918 in Hoff Township in Pope County, Minnesota. Her dad liked the name Hazel, but she ended up going by the name Lorraine. She was confirmed at West Zion Lutheran Church in 1932 by Rev. K. R. Palmer.

Lorraine was united in marriage to Arnold Naig,  September 17, 1939 at the East and West Zion Church Parsonage by Rev. K. R. Palmer. To this union five children were born. Following their marriage, the couple lived and farmed in Langhei Township in Pope County. Lorraine loved to bake and was best known for her homemade bread, donuts and kringla. She also loved digging in the dirt and tending all her flowers. The couple moved to Starbuck in 1975. For several winters, Arnold and Lorraine vacationed with their son, David, in Phoenix, Arizona.
