Lorraine Ostrander (December 17, 1937 – March 2, 2023)
Ostrander, Lorraine Ann age 85, of Rockford (formerly of Belding) passed away peacefully surrounded by the loving care of her family. She dearly missed her husband of nearly 60 years, Wayne Ostrander, since his passing in 2012. Lorraine will be remembered fondly by her children Diana (Tom) Huizinga; Judy Ostrander, Sue Ostrander, and Richard (Lisa) Ostrander; grandchildren, Rachelle (Mitchell) Stressman, Michael (Shannon) Ostrander, Megan (Peter) McGowan, Lukas (Allison) Ostrander, Jimmy Hogan, Sean Hogan, Breana Ostrander, and Paul (Rikki) Ostrander; and great-grandchildren, Logan Ostrander, Avery Ostrander, Ethan McGowan, Cayde Stressman, and Miles Ostrander. Also surviving is her sister in-law Jean Daller. Lorraine was preceded in death by her parents Louis and Anna (Rokus) Lapekes, ten brothers and one sister and their spouses.
Lorraine loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Whether it was shopping trips hunting for good deals, holidays at Bostwick Lake, family cruises, birthday celebrations, trips to Florida, or caring for grandchildren when they were unable to go to school, Lorraine always had a twinkle in her eye when her family was nearby. Upon their marriage in 1952, they raised four children. Together, they were dedicated to the community of Belding, the Catholic Church, their friends, and most of all, their family.
In place of a funeral, the family will hold a private celebration at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or Emmanuel Hospice in Grand Rapids. The family is blessed to have shared so many great memories with Lorraine and is glad that she is resting comfortably with Wayne in the presence of the Lord.
Cremation Services have been entrusted to Johnson-Feuerstein Funeral Home, Belding.
