Lorraine “Lori” Fundingsland of Delafield passed away peacefully Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, at AngelsGrace Hospice at the age of 75. She was born June 30, 1938, in Minnesota, the daughter of John and Bertine ”Babe” Gangness.

Lori had been a longtime member of First Presbyterian Church of Waukesha and had been involved with the Mariners Club. She was also a member of the Waukesha Service Club and a past member of Waukesha County Fair Senior Committee. But most of all, Lori enjoyed being a grandmother.

She is further survived by a brother-in-law, Dean Freeberg; a sister-inlaw, Emma Kaplin; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Lori was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, LaVerne Gangness; and sister, Marilyn Freeberg.

The visitation for Lori will be held from 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. memorial service Saturday, Nov. 23, at First Presbyterian Church, 810 N. East Ave., Waukesha. The burial will take place privately at a later date.
