Lorraine Jean Foerderer

Lorraine Jean Foerderer, 70, Medina, ND, died Saturday May 12, 2018 at her home surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer.

Lorraine Werth was born October 19, 1947 at Lehr, ND, the daughter of Julius and Hulda (Rueb) Werth. She received her education in the Lehr Public School, graduating from Lehr High School.

Lorraine married Roger Foerderer, the love of her life, on June 23, 1966 in Wishek, ND. She was a devoted wife and mother to their 4 children. As a side job, she did house cleaning for many people and helped Roger around the farm.

Lorraine was a lifetime member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. She was dedicated in her mission work to spread the Gospel. Her passion for helping others and not wanting recognition was commendable. She spent countless hours planning, shopping and cooking for their annual Christian Wagon Train. She touched more lives by living her faith and not preaching it.

Lorraine enjoyed shopping and crafting. She was very talented and creative in her cowboy craft making and enjoyed meeting and visiting with others at craft shows.

Lorraine had a heart of gold and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her husband of almost 52 years, Roger, Medina, ND; 4 children, Theresa (Steve) Sund, Medina, ND; Gerald (Laurie) Foerderer, Volborg, MT; Joel (Alisa) Foerderer, Cleveland, ND; Joshua (Jessica) Foerderer, Streeter, ND; 18 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild; 1 brother and sister, Willard (Lenora) Werth, Hermosa, SD and Lilia (Eldon) LaFave, Pierre, SD.
