A fitting tribute ... and a final goodbye

Family and friends followed Dingmann Funeral Care's horse-drawn hearse carrying Lorraine Dingmann, following her funeral Wednesday, May 14, at St. Anne's Catholic Church, to her place of burial in St. Anne's Cemetery. The horse-drawn hearse was preceded by a horse-drawn carriage, carrying Lorraine's pallbearers. It was just a little over a year ago that Lorraine celebrated her 95th birthday with family and friends, riding in a horse-drawn wagon and participating in a mile-long stretch of son Art's horseback riding tour of Minnesota on behalf of Camp Amanda-MN. Lorraine died Friday,  May 9, at Country Manor Health Care Center in Sartell at the age of 96. Staff photo.
