Lorraine was born July 12, 1924 in Cudworth. She attended school at St. Benedict School. She moved to Winnipeg for a short period of time and returned to Cudworth. She married Elmer Frie on Oct.18, 1948 and they lived on the farm until 1969 when they moved into Cudworth. In 1982 after they retired from farming, they moved into Saskatoon. Lorraine always loved her garden produce and her flowers. She always put her family first. She loved sewing for her three girls when they were young. Christmas 2001, she knit scarves "for all her girls". Her face lit up and she loved getting to hold and talk to the new great grandbabies. At 81 her children taught her to use the computer and she spent many hours on facebook and her emails. She enjoyed many fishing trips with her family. She was active in the Cudworth St. Michaelâ€™s and Saskatoon Holy Spirit Catholic Womenâ€™s League, St. Annâ€™s Nursing Home Auxiliary and spent countless hours volunteering. Elmer and Lorraine bowled together, traveled to many parts of the United States, Canada and Hawaii. At age 80, she enjoyed her trip to Ireland. She cherished her 4 trips in 3 years to visit Marleen and Ken in Chicago. Vigil for Lorraine will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday July 11, and the Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday July 12th.

Her girls would like to extend many thanks to the compassionate staff and her friends at Columbian Manor. We would like to thank all her friends for keeping her updated with "What's new?" Mom we will miss you, thank you for all you did for us. You were our angel all these years, teaching us through your example of being a devoted wife and mom. Love you, Adele, Marleen, and Yvette.
