Lorraine Clemmer, 92

Lorraine Clemmer, July 1, 1928 – April 21, 2021, age 92.

If you visited Clemmer’s Family restaurant or the Fishtale Grill Restaurant in New Prague in the 1980’s or 1990’s, there is a good chance that Lorraine Clemmer was the gracious lady who greeted you and escorted you to your table. Lorraine went to her eternal rest on April 21, 2021 and her always-kind and cheerful spirit will be carried forward by her three children, Reed Clemmer, Debbie Thompson and Cathy Ortiz; six grand-children Nick Clemmer, Laura Clemmer, Brock Thompson, Sean Thompson, Tristan Ortiz and Alexa Ortiz and two great-grandchildren Brielle Thompson and Aiden Thompson.

Lorraine was preceded in death by the love of her life and husband of 60 years, Harold “Red” Clemmer. Lorraine and Red were two peas in a pod, life-long Minnesotans, devoted and loving parents, hard working partners in the hospitality business, and avid travelers. After he passed in 2010, she still spoke to him every day.

Lorraine’s family and friends were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from her. Among them: remember birthdays and always send a card, cheer for the Twins and the Vikings, during the wins and the losses, and treat all people with compassion and consideration.

During her later years, Lorrain resided at the Oak Terrace Senior Living Facility in Jordan. Our family wants to express our heart-felt gratitude to the good folks at Oak Terrace for the excellent care that she received. She was happy and safe during her stay with you.

In closing, our hope is that the pandemic will have eased by this summer and at that time we will host a celebration of life for our “Sweet Lorraine.” As the lyrics go: “A pair of eyes that are brighter than the summer sky, when you see them, you’ll realize why I love my sweet Lorraine.”
