   Lorraine M. Hanson, of Moose Lake formerly Rice, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, at the Augustana Care Center in Moose Lake. A Celebration of Life for Lorraine will be held Saturday, April 29, 2017, at 10:30 a.m. at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church in Foley with visitation one hour prior to services at the church. Rev. Timothy Wittwer will officiate. Interment will be in the Benton County Cemetery, Sauk Rapids.  Service with Dignity provided by Foley Funeral Home.
   Lorraine M. (Haug) Hanson was born August 4, 1922, to Marcus T. and Sarah (Sadie) B. Haug.  The family lived in Clear Lake, where Lorraine’s mother ran the telephone switchboard, and her father worked for the Northern Pacific Railroad.  In 1936, the family moved to St. Cloud. Lorraine attended Central Junior High School and St. Cloud Technical High School, where she graduated in 1940.
   On April 11, 1942, Lorraine married Donald J. Hanson from Sauk, Rapids. Donald joined the U.S. Army Air Corp, and together they lived in Wyoming, Missouri, and Texas while he completed his military service. Following the end of the World War II, they moved to Sauk Rapids, where they raised their three children.
   After her children were all in school, Lorraine took a job with Holes Webway in St. Cloud, where she worked for 17 years before retiring in 1974. In 1963, the family moved to a new home they built on Little Rock Lake in Rice. There many fond memories were created while spending time with their grandchildren and great grandchildren.
   She loved to sew for her grandchildren, was a wonderful baker known for her pies and rolls, and a talented musician.
   Following the passing of her husband, Lorraine moved to a new home in Moose Lake, in 2001. There she created many wonderful new memories with her great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, who loved to hear her wonderful stories. Her sense of humor was endearing and she will be sorely missed by the many lives she touched.
   Lorraine was preceded in death by her husband Donald, her parents Marcus and Sadie, her brother Arnold Haug and wife Eleanor, sister Jean (Haug) Butler and husband Glen, brother Marcus Haug, sister-in-law Lorenda Haug, and son-in-law John Van Heel.
   She is survived by her daughters Laurie Van Heel and Linda Hiemenz, her son Curtis (Nell) Hanson, granddaughter Melissa (Dylan) MacLean, grandsons Patrick (Suzanne) Van Heel and Davin Hanson. Seven great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, sister Connie (Alvin) Henry, sister-in-law Geraldine Haug, many nieces and nephews, and many dear friends.
