Lorraine was born December 26, 1931 in Merrill, WI to Herman and Isabel (Friske) Reinke.  She graduated from Merrill High School.  She married Edward R. Tesch on August 29, 1954 in Merrill, WI.  He passed away on April 13, 2007.

Lorraine worked at Livingston’s in Merrill and later at Hardees and Taco Johns in Wisconsin Rapids.

Lorraine loved to knit and made hundreds of mittens over the years.  She enjoyed dancing polkas, fishing at the family cottage in Tomahawk, and was an avid Packer and Brewer fan.  Her greatest love was spending time with family, especially with her grandsons Cody and Tyler.  She adored her great-granddaughter, Austynn.

Lorraine is survived by her son, Scott (Paula) Tesch of Wisconsin Rapids; grandsons, Cody (Krista) Tesch of Brown Deer, WI and Tyler (fiancé Abigail DeWilde) Tesch of Port Edwards, WI; great-granddaughter, Austynn Tesch (and another great-granddaughter on the way); many nieces and nephews; and a very special friend, Joan Smoodie of Stevens Point, WI.  She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Edward; and 7 siblings: Harold Reinke, Jeanette Siehr, Helen Rossiter, Vanetta Anderson, Lavern Reinke, Delores Kluender, and Donald Reinke.

Herman0Taylor Funeral Home is honored to be assisting the family.
