Sadly we lost LaDorna a few days ago. She touched so many people thru out her lifetime and gave a stable home to so many children by fostering over 500 children over 53 years. Always dressed in purple and always had kind words for all. We will forever miss her smile and her warm embrace. RIP Aunt LaDorna, we will forever miss you. God Bless her soul

We are sorry to learn of the passing of LaDorna. We have many fond memories of LaDorna and the Rabbe Family while attending St. Peter's Lutheran Church many years ago. Walter, LaDorna and the Rabbe Family were cherished members of St. Peter's Church and wonderful friends of Rev. Conrad and Family over the years.
May God comfort all your Family at this time.
