Loraine M. Wohlfeil was born May 20,1926, to Frank and Catherine (Brigowatz) Semon in Watertown, and passed away Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013.  


She married Gerhard (Gary) Wohlfeil on Oct. 13, 1951, at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Watertown.  


She is survived by her children, Helen (Jack) Vogt of Lakeland, Fla., Gary (Robin) Wohlfeil of Oconomowoc and Teri (Bob) Roscoe of Delafield. She will be greatly missed by her 12 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren who adored her.  She is further survived by a brother, Frank Semon of Watertown, and a sister, Blanche Pooch of Stoughton.  


Her unselfish, out-going personality, smile and love of life impacted everyone she met. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren each touched her heart in their own special way. Loraine kept in touch with all of them and said good-bye with “I love you to the moon and back.” She was always ready for a shopping and lunch outing.  


Loraine was a member of the Watertown High School Class of 1945 class reunion committee, Irish Club, Birthday Club and Catholic Women’s Club. Her last four years were enriched by the friends she made at her home at Zinzendorf  Hall . They were her adopted family.


A funeral Mass was held Monday at St. Bernard Catholic Church, 114 S. Church St., Watertown. Private family burial was at St. Jerome Cemetery.  


Memorials to St. Bernard’s Tuition Assistance fund (Watertown) or charity of your choice are appreciated.
