Brueggemann Lorraine Obituary
Lorraine Brueggemann, 86, of Longmont, died February 1, 2014. Lorraine was born in Crystal Lake, WI. on June 8, 1927 to Elmer and Clara Meyer. Following high school she went to Central State Teachers College (now the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.) She graduated in 1949 and embarked on a career in teaching in St. Louis, Missouri. Lorraine met Eugene Brueggemann at Stevens Point and they were married in Westfield, Wisconsin on August 5, 1951, a relationship which would last over 62 years. Lorraine served as an invaluable assistant to her husband/pastor in both parish and campus ministries throughout the United States. After retirement they continued to serve part-time in Fort Collins and Boulder, which brought them to Longmont. Lorraine focused on motherhood as they started a family, but frequently taught part-time to keep her hand in her professional realm. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Boulder. Surviving are her husband Gene; son Tom Brueggemann, daughters Karen (Mark) Williams; Louise Brueggemann; Miriam (John) Nuney and Priscilla Murphy. She is also survived by two granddaughters, 3 step-grandchildren, 2 brothers, 2 sisters and a brother-in-law. A funeral service celebrating the grace of God and Lorraine's life of love will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 8th at Trinity Lutheran Church, Boulder. Visitation will be held at the church before the service beginning at 10:00 a.m. Contributions may be made to the Trinity Lutheran Church, c/o Howe Mortuary, 439 Coffman St., Longmont, Colorado 80501.
