Lorraine Marion Cox, 91, Fargo, ND passed away on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at Sanford Palliative Care surrounded by her family.  She was born on January 18, 1923 to Frank and Matilda (Bitzan) Kuhn in Enderlin, ND where she grew up and graduated from Enderlin High school.  Following graduation, she had several secretarial jobs.

Lorraine had a very strong faith and was an active member of St. Mary’s Cathedral for almost 60 years.  Family was extremely important to her and she was always the one to take care of everyone else.  She was always on the go, and remained extremely active until her passing.

  3. St. Cloud MN
    We are so very sorry to read of Lorraine’s death. I last spoke with her when cousin Willie Barthelemy died and she sounded so chipper then.

    The distance is too great and we have overnight company so we cannot make it to Fargo for her services. We will attend Mass here in St. Cloud keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

    I still have the rosary you made for me, Barry, at the 1998 Kuhn reunion. Thank you.
    Bob and Bernice

  4. During this time of great sorrow, caring thoughts are with you. Praying that God will give you the strength and courage needed at this most difficult time. Take comfort in the fact, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) May the promise that death will soon be no more give you hope and bring you peace. “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and Death Will Be No More, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore…” (Revelation 21:4) With Deepest Sympathy, Regina Jones
