"Lorraine and John had 2 children - Lorna-jane and Frasier...
Frazier had a sister, Suzi had 2 brothers."

This is not in the "Tricks" thread, so I assume "Frasier" and "Frazier" are one and the same person. However I will try to solve it on the assumption that these are two separate individuals.

This will be part of my continuing commitment to diversity.
