Lorraine Betty Lakeberg of Cambridge, formerly of Stanchfield, passed away on Friday, September 28, 2018 at Walker Methodist LeVande in Cambridge, her home for the past year, surrounded by family. She was 85 years old.

Lorraine was born on January 30, 1933 in Albert Lea to parents Leonard and Lillian (Bauman) Olson. She grew up in Minneapolis until moving with her parents to a farm in rural Stanchfield during the 7th grade. She graduated from Braham High School in 1951. On May 23, 1953 she married Willmer Lakeberg. They made their home on their farm in Stanchfield for over 60 years. Together they had 5 children.

Lorraine worked for many years at the Braham Mercantile. She also worked with her parents at their restaurant in Stanchfield and retired from East Central Electric after 20 years of service. During all of this she helped with the farm work, raised 5 children, and was the best cook and baker ever – famous for her home-made donuts, rice pudding, and apple pie. She loved to bake and family and friends could never leave without having coffee and eating something she had baked fresh that day. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren dearly and loved seeing or hearing from each one. She was a long time member of Braham Evangelical Lutheran Church.

She will be dearly missed by her loving family and friends.

A huge “Thank You” to the staff at Walker Methodist LeVande and the Allina Hospice team for the wonderful care they provided our mother.

Lorraine is preceded in death by her parents, husband Willmer, sister LaVonne Workman and brother LaVerne Olson.

She is survived by her children, Louise (Loren) Nelson, Michael (Susan), Mary Lou, Robert (Cynthia), and Betty Jo (Michael) Lucas; grandchildren, Stacie (James) Colling, Timothy (Kelly) Nelson, Joseph (Brittany), Daniel (Kelsey), Travis (Melissa), Tyler (Ashley), Patrick Baune, Amber Baune, Brock Lucas (Samantha Haring), and Alicia Lucas; great grandchildren, Ty, Ian, Nora, Andrew, Bristol, Cale, Miles, Ryder, Penny, Owen, Britta, Owen, and Henry; brother Larry Olson; several nieces and nephews, and many other relatives and friends.

  2. It feels like we have lost a member of our family with so many connections to Lorraine and Willmar. May the passing of the generation cause all of us to reflect on the meaning of live and a life well lived. Family, faith and a huge mixture of love is what I look back and see in Lorraine’s legacy.

  3. Betty Jo and Family, so sorry for the loss of your beloved mom. Hugs and prayers at this sad time.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. Lorraine was always such a warm and welcoming person and she was just the highlight of my day when I was at Walker Methodist. I have so many fond memories of singing with her and taking her for rides in her wheelchair down the hall and we’d always be laughing about something. She had a delightful sense of humor. I always called her” my girl” because she was a ray of sunshine to my day. She will be greatly missed. Hugs and prayers to the family. I’m so sorry for your loss.
