Lorraine Aniceta Kritzeck, age 95, of Becker (formerly of Howard Lake), passed away peacefully Friday, Dec. 18, 2020.
She was born Jan. 25, 1925, in Eden Valley to Henry and Magdalen (Lueck) Millerbernd, and she was the youngest of seven children.
Lorraine was joined in holy marriage to Leo Kritzeck Sept. 20, 1949, at St. Peter Catholic Church in Eden Valley. God blessed their marriage with seven children.
After marriage, Leo and Lorraine lived on his family’s dairy farm near Howard Lake, where Lorraine lived until 2011. She then moved to Shepherd of Grace Senior Community in Becker, where she lived until her passing.
Lorraine was known for her excellent baking and cooking skills. She would often share her meals, treats, and recipes with family and friends. Gardening was another passion of hers, and her floral arrangements won numerous prizes at county fairs.
Above all, Lorraine was a faith-filled, compassionate, and kindhearted woman, who was also known for her quick wit and great advice.
Lorraine is survived by her children: Audrey (Greg) Dishman, Greg (Sharon) Kritzeck, Mary (Bruce) Norman, Robert (Marlene) Kritzeck, and Carolyn Chalupsky; and daughters-in-law, Eva Kritzeck and Denise Kritzeck. She is further survived by her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and other relatives.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Leo; her sons, Joe and Jon Kritzeck; and son-in-law, Doug Chalupsky; and granddaughter, Casey Kritzeck.
Lorraine’s funeral and celebration of life will take place at a later date. Memorials can be made to Shepherd of Grace Senior Community.
