Our deepest Sympathy to Carol, David & Dale in the loss of your mom. We were neighbors on the farm for many years and then Lorraine married my uncle Clarence. Always loved seeing Lorraine when we would come back to Langdon. May she Rest In Peace.

Carol, Sorry to hear about your mother. She was a classy lady and a hard worker. I remember when you stayed with Louis and Elma and rode our bus to Nekoma. You always came on the bus and looked so pretty. We just lost Nina and we know how painful it is. God is with you. Love, Enid(Steinkuehler) and Arden Berggren

Lorraine was married to my uncle Clarence Ballweg on my mother's side of the family. She was a great conversationalist and always took an interest in the lives of my sisters and me. Whenever our family came to Langdon to visit, she always welcomed us to her house and was a gracious hostess. Blessings be upon her!
