Lorraine Miller, 76, formerly of the LeRoy area, died October 27, 2002 at the Ostrander Nursing Home, where she had resided for about two and a half years.
Lorraine Thoreson was born May 2, 1926 in Beaver Township, Fillmore County to Hardie and Clara (Aarness) Thoreson. She attended the Sample School and graduated in 1944 from LeRoy High School. She attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. In August 1946 she married Billy Terbeest. They were later divorced. On May 16, 1970, she married Warren "Wink" Miller. He died in 1992. Mrs. Miller worked at Ostrander State Bank for many years and served as secretary for Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, where she was a member. At Trinity she sang in the choir, took part in circle group activities and was a Luther League adviser. She later attended St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Lime Springs, Iowa, when she moved there in 1992. She enjoyed birds, reading and going for walks to look for wild flowers. Survivors include three daughters, Sandra (Brian) Johnson of Lime Springs, Joanne (John) Kirby of Paris, France, and Karen Miller of LeRoy; two grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and one sister, Marilyn Hovey of Lime Springs. One daughter and one brother preceded her in death. The funeral was held Oct. 30, 2002 at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ostrander, with the Rev. Linda Johnson-Prestholt officiating. Burial was in the Ostrander Cemetery. Hindt-Hutchins Funeral Home in LeRoy was in charge of arrangements.
