Lorraine F. Krick

June 8, 1926 – September 19, 2018

Lorraine Frances Endres Krick was born on June 8, 1926 and welcomed into heaven on September 19, 2018.  Lorraine “Larie” was born to Jake and Emma Endres in Ellendale, North Dakota.  She was preceded in death by her parents; three siblings: Louise (Sid) Koenecke, Richard (Connie) Endres, and Herman (Norene) Gunther; first-born son, Nicky Alan.

After graduating from Marshall High School in Minnesota, Larie worked as a receptionist and stenographer.  She married Arthur “Art” Krick on June 14, 1949, in Pipestone, MN.

Lorraine is survived by daughter and son-in-law, Mary Krick-Nelson and Eric Nelson; son and daughter-in-law, Dave and Carol Krick; daughter and son-in-law, Margy and Evan Fenn; son and daughter-in-law, Dan and Susan Krick; daughter and son-in-law, Monica and Jay Thede.  She also enjoyed her grandchildren and their spouses including Keenan and Sarah (Wilson) Krick, Hannah Krick and fiancé Gage Shirley, Elizabeth (Krick-Nelson) and Conor McInerny, Sara Krick-Nelson, Katie (Krick)and Tommie Bardsley, Nate and Anthony Krick and Thomas Krick and his fiancée, Therese Sievert, Jake and Luke Fenn, and Grace and Quentin Thede; great-grandchild, Lydia Mae Krick, daughter of Keenan and Sarah Krick.

Larie was creative and enjoyed many crafts, especially sewing, knitting, quilting and ceramics, and macramé.  She was an incredible seamstress who sewed many items of clothing and Halloween costumes for her children and grandchildren.  She volunteered for hospice and the local hospital and cared for many individuals over the years. She was an active member of Catholic Daughters in Winner, SD, and she and Art were always active in their local parishes as eucharistic ministers, and leading couple faith groups. Playing golf with Art, on a league and during trips across the country, was something she loved, and she was proud to have won trophies in local golf tournaments.  Larie also loved reading and word puzzles and read often to her children and grandchildren.  Her family and spouse benefited from her love of travel, and she planned cross country camping trips when their children were young, and later organized many trips to different parts of the country for her and Art after his retirement.

She and Art raised their family in many locations: Hibbing, Minnesota; Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin; Emmetsburg, Iowa; Winner, South Dakota; and Grand Island, Nebraska.  In 2003, they moved to Omaha and became members of St. Vincent DePaul parish.

Lorraine was a faithful servant and a great example of faith to her family. Loyalty and love for family were critical to her.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, September 23rd from 3pm to 5pm at the West Center Chapel, 7805 W. Center Rd. in Omaha, followed by VIGIL SERVICE at 5pm.  MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Monday, September 24th at 10:30am at St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church, 14330 Eagle Run Dr. in Omaha. Memorials can be directed to the family.
