Lorayne P. Erickson

Lorayne Pearl Erickson, 87, died at the Litchfield Hospital on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014.

Funeral services were held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Cokato. Burial was at Grace Lutheran Church following the service and lunch. Visitation with family and friends was held Friday at the Swanson-Peterson Funeral Home.

She is survived by her children, Rodney of Cokato, Kenneth (Joan) of St. Cloud, Calvin (Connie) of French Lake, Ralph (Jill) of Eagle Bend, Paul (Patti Jo) of South Haven, Cathrinne (Steve Angell) of Monticello, Karen Leibel of Coon Rapids, Pamela Braatz of Cokato and Cynthia Scherping of Cokato. She is also survived by 28 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren; sister Virginia (Ginny) Anderson of Cokato; brother Harold Wendorf of Bayport; sister-in-laws, Earla Mae Erickson of Moorhead and Elaine Erickson of Plymouth.

She was preceded in death by her husband in 2002; her brother, Hartwell Wendorf; daughter-in-law, Lanette Erickson and grandson, Brandon Scherping.

Lorayne was born Jan. 23, 1926, in Watertown to Fred and Hulda (Vidlund) Wendorf. She married Daniel Erickson on Aug. 15, 1942, to which were born nine children.

Lorayne attended Annandale High School leaving after the 11th grade. While raising her children, she also helped with the milking of the cows, various field activities, did finishing of woodwork in many homes that her husband built and remodeled and other various jobs.

Her strong faith and prayers were an inspiration to many and were displayed by the many letters and cards that she sent to her loved ones. She would write about what her Lord and Savior meant to her filling the letters and cards with Bible verses and thoughts. She felt bad during the last year that she couldn't write anymore, but her words portrayed the love of Jesus to people.
