Obituary: Lorraine Keson, 101, of Ludington.

Lorraine Phyllis Keson, 101, of Ludington, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 16, 2022.  She was born on March 20, 1920, in Fountain, the daughter of Dow & Adele (Tauch) Johnson.

She was married on April 8, 1941 to Walter Keson who preceded her in death in February of 1977.

Lorraine was loved and cherished by many and will be greatly missed by her children, son, Michael (Elsie) Keson; daughter-in-law, Joyce Keson; and daughter, Mary (William) Lehrbass; her grandchildren, Christina (Stewart) Kieliszewski, Paul (Julie) Keson, Craig Keson, Jim (Rebekah) Lehrbass, and Kristi (Joe) Hill; her 12 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents and her husband, Walter, Lorraine was also preceded in death by her son, Thomas Keson; and her half-sisters Agnes Johnson, and Vernal Bengtson.

According to her wishes cremation has taken place and a memorial service to celebrate her faith and life will be held in the spring due to Covid-19 concerns with Pastor Mick Shriver of Emanuel Lutheran Church officiating.

The family wishes to express a special thanks to Pam Carlson, Ludington Assisted Living staff and Elara Caring Hospice for their loving and care of Lorraine.
