Lorraine Trask, age 90, Sturgeon Bay, passed away Friday, October 26, 2018. She was born August 17, 1928 in San Diego, California to the late Allyn and Dorothy (Kiefert) Trask.
In her 20s, she lived in Los Angeles and found some success with having her music published. Everyone including her neighbors at GranCare and at Anna’s Healthcare loved gathering around the piano as she played all of the old standards by ear. Her father’s well-used ukulele was her most prized possession.
Lorraine was secretary for 18 years at Olson Transportation Co. and retired from the Green Bay Police Department after 21 years of employment. She enjoyed singing with the Green Bay Chapter of Sweet Adelines and for many years was the chorus Director.
Lorraine spent many happy hours at her cabin in the woods near Amberg, Wisconsin, where she enjoyed feeding and watching her “little critters” and birds. She had a great love for nature and animals.
She is survived by her sisters, Kathleen Kosnar, Suamico; Susan (Lee) Basten, Sturgeon Bay and Lisa (Ronald) Novitski, Pulaski; her nieces, Brenda Basten Stone (Scott), Cheryl Basten Snook (Michael), Kristine Hurckman Porter (David), Holly Hurckman Scott (Phil), Carly Novitski Nooyen (Al); her nephews, Brad Hurckman (Lana), Andrew Hurckman, Justin Novitski and Aaron Novitski; thirteen great-nieces and great-nephews; as well as cousins and friends.
Lorraine is preceded in death by her parents, and step-mother, Jane (McAllister) Trask.
