Obituary for Lorraine Preboske

Lorraine Preboske, age 100, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 8, 2016, while residing at Bell Tower Residence, Merrill.

Lorraine was born March 29, 1916, in Antigo, daughter of the late Felix and Elizabeth (Timm) Drengler. She married Felix ‘Pete’ Preboske on September 30, 1939, in Antigo. He preceded her in death on February 22, 1994. Lorraine attended nursing school in Milwaukee, graduating in 1937 as a registered nurse. After graduation, Lorraine served as a visiting nurse in the Milwaukee area for 2 years. After marrying Pete, Lorraine worked as a private duty nurse in Merrill, then as a Registered Nurse at Pine Crest Nursing Home, Merrill, for 11 years. Lorraine retired in 1978.

Lorraine was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Merrill, where she was a former member of the Mission Circle, visited shut-ins and attended Bible Study. Lorraine volunteered for 25 years with the Merrill Food Pantry, and she also volunteered her time with the Merrill Senior Center. Lorraine enjoyed time with the ‘Red Hatters, and had been an avid golfer, a game she began playing at the age of 50. Lorraine enjoyed traveling with her husband to Hawaii and many historic places in the United States, and also enjoyed traveling with her daughter and son-in-law to their home in Arizona. Lorraine spent many happy times at the Ravn family home and cottage. Lorraine’s greatest pleasure was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Lorraine is survived by her daughter, Lynne (Michael) Gallagher, Greendale, WI; her son, David (Kris) Preboske, Eagle River, WI; eight grandchildren, Michelle Martinez, Paul Gallagher, Katherine Gallagher, Suzanne Hahn, Michael Preboske, Greg Preboske, Bethany Martinovici and Lindsay Lisowski; nine great-grandchildren; her daughter-in-law, Judy Preboske, North Carolina; one brother, George Drengler, Ohio; her dear friend and former neighbor, Pat Schulz, Merrill; and several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents and husband, Lorraine was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; two sons, Paul Preboske and Peter Preboske; one granddaughter, Elizabeth Preboske; and two siblings, Lucille and Richard.

Burial will take place at a later date in Queen of Peace Catholic Cemetery, Antigo. Visitation will begin at 10:00 A.M. Friday at the church.
