Lorraine A. Kroeplin, age 87, longtime Gilman area resident, passed away peacefully on January 28, 2009 at Oakbrook Health and Rehab Center in Thorp.

Services were held Sunday, Feb. 1 at Plombon Funeral Chapel in Stanley, with Pastor Grant Brown officiating. Burial was at Meadowbrook Cemetery in Gilman.
