Lorraine Phyliss Munson, 94

Lorraine was born on June 5, 1924, to Albert and Genevieve (Ottum) Friese of Wanamingo, Minnesota. She married Arlin Munson on March 6, 1946, and moved to Hayfield.

Lorraine worked for the Bank of Wanamingo after graduation from high school. When her children were older she went to work at Lohn’s Red Owl in Hayfield. She worked there for 30 some years and will fondly be remembered by many there for her “sass” and great “sense of humor.” Lorraine was loved by all who ever met her. Lorraine had many passions; she loved to bowl, play cards, listen to music, and even played a little bit of guitar, harmonica and a few piano pieces. Lorraine loved to travel in their motor home and enjoyed many fishing trips, especially the many trips to Canada. She and her sister enjoyed antiquing and trips to varied casinos.
