Lorraine A Loose
Chilton, WI

Lorraine A Loose, age 87, died peacefully on Sunday, November 1, 2020, at Century Ridge. She was born April 16, 1933 the daughter of the late Albert and Edna (Piepenburg) Haberland.

Lorraine was a graduate of Sheboygan Falls High School. As a young woman, she worked for Pranges where she learned the retail business and greeted customers with a warm smile and kind ‘Hello’. She married Ronald Loose in 1956 and the couple worked side by side running the family farm until 1980 when they bought the Loose Bar. As a social butterfly, this endeavor served her well so she could be around people to share stories, create memories and laugh a lot.  

She was a lifelong member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Rantoul where she was also an active member of the Ladies Aid.  Her faith was strong and loved to proclaim that through singing both in church, and at nursing homes and assisted living centers through the area.  

Always keeping busy, Lorraine was constantly occupying her hands with something; knitting, crocheting, word searches or tenderly caring for her garden just to name a few.  She had an appreciation to dress nicely and looked forward to shopping for her wardrobe.  She also never passed up a good round of Sheepshead with her family and friends.  One of Lorraine’s favorite passions was to travel with family and friends. She has many photo albums of her travels around the world and enjoyed going through them to recall the trip when she longer was able to travel.

Although Lorraine created many long lasting memories with many people, nothing brought her more joy than creating memories with those she loved the most, her family.  She had the softest heart and an uncanny ability to make everyone around her feel special.  She had a passion for being in their presence and enjoyed every moment of life that was given to her.  

Lorraine is survived by her  children: Chris (Bob) Burnside, Berry (Laura) Loose, Pickle (Shari) Loose, Dot Turek, Tracy Wolf, Boone Geske and Tom Geske; extended family: Donnie (Lynn) Behnke , Dale (Anita) Behnke, Darlene (Mark) Propson, Nancy (Richard) Baumgartner. 16 granchildren: Kelli (Josh) Sohn-Loose, Jason Loose , Matt (Amy) Loose, Melissa (Al) Turek- Fleischman, James W. Turek, & Holly, Sarah (Patrick) Kempson, Emily (Brandon) Bancroft, Adam Loose and Alex Wolf. Angela (Jason) Miller  Annette (Keith) Mrozyaski, Mike ((Lacey) Behnke,  Erin (Brandon) Conrad, Derek (Kim) Behnke, Briana Propson and God child Heidi Propson and 20 great grandchildren, Special nieces & nephews;  Pat (Bob) Loose, Diane and David Haese and many more that called her Mom.

Lorraine was preceded in death by her husband Ronald and her parents. Her sister Delores (Gene) Prostek, son in law, Jim Turek, father in law George Loose, mother in law Dorothy (Norman) Rohrdanz, sisters and brothers in law Eleanore Geske, Eugene and Lucille Loose, Floyd and Margaret Loose, and step sister and brother in law Marion and Eldred Totzke.

Lorraine's family would like to express their special thanks to Calumet County Hospice, especially Holly, Gloria and Anna for their compassion and care.  They would also like to thank the staff Century Ridge, Jamie, Erica, Marsha & Sue, who cared for mom during this trying and frustrating time of COVID.

Funeral service will be at 12:00 Noon on Friday, November 6, 2020 at Trinity Lutheran Church, Rantoul (N6080 West River Road, Hilbert, WI) with Rev. Brett Simek officiating.  Burial will be in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery.  Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) Chilton on Thursday, November 5, 2020 from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm and on Friday at the church from 10:00 am until 11:45 am. 

Memorials given in the name of Lorraine Loose are appreciated for Trinity Lutheran Church, Rantoul or the American Heart Association. 
Lorraine was married to my first cousin, Ronald. The obituary said it all about Lorraine. She was a trooper. I will always remember the night that we met up at the same place. She was the happiest lady. She had just turned 62 and received her first SS check. Now she is at peace and rest. A wonderful lady!
