Lorraine Margaret (Yoxey) Glach, 96, passed away peacefully November 22, 2018 in Pueblo. She was preceded in death by her husband, John “Benny”; parents, Mary (Germ) and Ludwig Yoxey; sisters, Elsie Zupancic, Mary “Mae” Pechek; brother, Richard; and other cherished family members. She is survived by her children, Rick Glach and Sister Jean Glach, OP; brother, Ronald Yoxey; sisters, Gerry (Bob) Blazich and Evelyn Matkins; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. A life-long Pueblo resident, Lorraine graduated from Central High School in 1940, and worked for Babey Elite Studio before marrying in 1947, and undertaking her life’s vocation as a mother and homemaker. Proud of her Slovenian heritage, she was a loyal and loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. A faithful and faith-filled woman, she was a member of St. Mary’s Church, Christian Mothers, Western Slavonic Association and the Eucharistic Association. Lorraine loved life and people. Her gentle, sweet disposition and warm smile were a welcoming presence to all she met. Her sharp mind and memory of dates and numbers was phenomenal. She enjoyed time with family, visiting with friends, a good meal, and cheering for the Broncos and Rockies (especially Nolan Arenado). She met her many challenges in life and in health with strength, acceptance, and grace. She will be deeply missed. Special thanks to Dr. Jim Stjernholm for his excellent medical care and to all the nurses and CNA’s who assisted her during these past years. Viewing and Services will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church, 307 E. Mesa Ave.; Viewing, 6-7 p.m., followed by the Rosary at 7 p.m., Thursday, November 29, 2018.

I'm writing this for my mother, Mattie Wellert as she is currently in rehab and does not have access to a computer. She would like to express her sincere condolences on the loss of Lorraine. She use to visit a lady from her church who at the time was Lorraine's room mate. By visiting her other friend, she got to know and love Lorraine and continued to visit Lorraine as long as she was still driving. She was sad to see her passing in the paper. She would have been to the funeral but she had a fall 11/9 and is currently in ReHab at the Villas. Our deepest condolences of the loss of your loved one.

Sr Jean and Rick,
My condolences to you and your family upon the loss of your Mom. I used to see her when she attended daily mass at St. Marys. What a sweet lady she was! I will always remember her pleasant smile and demeanor. May memories of her give you peace in the days ahead.

Rest peacefully Lorraine.

I am sorry for your loss. Your mom was always cheerful and I always enjoyed talking to her. Your mom always asked about me and my family. My mom graduated with her from Central and I remember them talking about old times. May she rest in peace. Love and prayers, Nancy
