Lorraine Lillian Lena (Beilke) Ziegenhagen lived a long, healthy 96 years until the Good Lord greeted her on April 9. Born to William and Olga Beilke on September 30, 1920, Lorraine grew up on a farm near Morgan with her six siblings.

Lorraine became the bride of William Ziegenhagen on August 30, 1939 and they were married for 59 years. They farmed near Morgan until 1981 when they retired to their lake home on Diamond Lake in Atwater. They moved back to the farm in 1986 and then, in 1998, moved to Hutchinson to be closer to family. Lorraine and William spent the rest of their lives there.

Lorraine’s hobbies throughout her life included gardening, bowling, embroidery, reading and watching “Judge Judy.” She believed the kitchen was the heart of the home and you could not visit without her making sure you had something to eat.

Lorraine is survived by her children Pat Meyer, Gary (Deb) Ziegenhagen, Dale (Wendy) Ziegenhagen, and Donna (Doug) Forster; 10 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and her brother William. She was preceded in death by her husband William; son Wayne; daughter Faye; sons-in-law Roger Meyer and Cliff Amsler; brother Roland; and sisters Francis, Myrtle, Evelyn, and Lilas.

Blessed be her memory.
