Lorraine Martha Kremer was born on March 24, 1927 to Robert and Hilda (Kley) Meisner. Lorraine was united in marriage to Harold “Bud” Kremer on July 10, 1946 in Raymond, MN. They made their home on a farm in rural Lake Lillian and were blessed with three children. Some of her favorite activities were gardening and spending time with her horse Brandi, her cats, and her dogs, Bubba and Kola. She was involved in all of the farming operations through the years including driving truck, milking cows and caring for the other farm animals. She loved her grandchildren and because they lived on the same farm she was very active in their daily lives. Together they made many memories but one of their most cherished was building a tree house together. Lorraine will be remembered for being hard working and independent, as she was still living in her house until the day she passed.
Lorraine is survived by her children: Tim Kremer (Lisa Hirschman) of Lake Lillian, Tom Kremer of St. Cloud, and Sandy Smith of Missouri; her eight grandchildren; and her nine great-grandchildren. Lorraine was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Harold “Bud”; her three brothers; and four sisters.
