If you ever call Trinity, Lorraine is typically the voice you'll hear on the other end! Lorraine grew up and went to school nearby in Newhall, Iowa. She went to church and was confirmed at St. John's Lutheran Church in Newhall. She has worked at Trinity since 1967 and her favorite part of her job is doing anything she can to be of service to the congregation. She is married to Jerry and in her free time she enjoys reading. Stop in or give Trinity a call, and say "hi" to Lorraine!
