Lorraine was born on December 20, 1926, to Louis and Elizabeth (nee Wourms) Wirtz in Humboldt, SK. She was raised on the family farm near Pilger, SK. On June 4, 1946, Lorraine married Alois Jaeb in Pilger. After their marriage, they lived and farmed on the Jaeb family farm in the Fulda district. Their union was blessed with six children: Alvera (May 1947), Joseph (April 1948 – died at birth), Glenn (August 1949), Carol (January 1955), Garry (October 1956), and Neil (September 1963). The Jaeb family moved to Humboldt in 1961, and Lorraine worked as a cook in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. In 1969, the family moved to Surrey, BC, where Lorraine was employed as a sawyer in a poultry plant. They moved back to the Humboldt district in 1982 to retire, but Lorraine went back to work as a cook at St. Peter’s College. Over the years, Lorraine enjoyed cooking, sewing, and loved to work on crossword puzzles. In 2016, she and Alois moved to Bethany Pioneer Village in Middle Lake, SK. Alois died on December 31, 2016. Lorraine remained at Bethany until 2018, when she became a resident of Quill Plains Centennial Lodge.
