Lorraine Eleanor Andress Yetter
Jan. 13, 1927–Sept. 22, 2012

Lorraine passed away Saturday morning, September 22, 2012 at 6:55 a.m. at the age of eighty-five years, eight months and twenty-two days. Lorraine always greeted people with a smile, was a great listener, and never judgmental of other's decisions. Sadly she never really recovered from a serious accident in May 2011.
Lorraine lived her life guided by the basic principle of "do unto others…". She always believed that God is in charge. Lorraine guided her children to always be honest, because the truth never needs to change.
Lorraine was born in Philadelphia, PA and moved to Granger, IN with husband, Forest Eugene (Gene) Yetter where they raised three children. She could be firm but never left any doubt that she loved her children unconditionally.
Lorraine is survived by her three children, Delores Ann Yetter Balogh Thompson, who resides in South Bend IN, Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Sells (Linda Diane Yetter), who reside in Lynnwood WA 98036, and Kenneth Lee Yetter and Irene King Yetter who reside in Florence, OR.
Lorraine is also survived by eight grandchildren, Scott Brian Balogh, Mr. and Mrs. Steven Allen (Julie) Balogh, Mrs. Sheridan Christine Balogh Davis, Mr. and Mrs. James Winenger (Lorraine Irene Thompson), Mr. and Mrs. Charles Jasen and Kandis Marie Sells, Mr. and Mrs. Jeffery Vaughn and Katrina Lynn Sells, Mr. and Mrs. Adam and Lindsey Yetter, and Mr. and Mrs. Nathan and Kara Yetter.
Lorraine is also survived by fourteen great grandchildren, Rebecca Balogh, Joseph Balogh, Matthew, Tyler and Bailey Davis, Kathryn and Jessica Winenger, Kaitlyn Nicole, Alec Armstrong, Makenzie Marie and Karalynn Hope Sells and Payden Aric, Zander Robert, and Griffon Forest Yetter. Ages range from teenagers to 2 ½ year old twins.
In her final days she was so happy to visit with her children, many grandchildren and seven of her great grandchildren. Prior to closing her eyes for the last time she was cheered up by the youngest of her great grandchildren, 2 ½ year old twins, Makenzie and Karalynn Sells, with singing and dancing to the Pontoon song!
According to Lorraine's wishes her cremains, along with those of her husband (who pre-deceased her in May 2005) will be scattered into the Pacific Ocean at a time when her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and any other family can be together to celebrate her life.
