September 4, 1935 – March 7, 2018
Lorraine Clees, age 82, entered into rest March 7, 2018 in Spokane, Washington. She was born September 4, 1935 in Monroe, Washington to Robert and Bertha Wall, and attended school in Foster, Washington. She met John Clees in 1952 and they were married October 1, 1955. Together they built a life in the Methow Valley, growing fruit and raising livestock. Lorraine worked at the Brewster Hospital and various apple sheds. They raised three children, Debra, Natalie and Kurt. Lorraine kept her family close over the years – through the trials and the joys. She lived a long and rich life until Jesus came to take her home. She was a very caring mom. She defined selfless, never putting herself first. Whatever the trial, she never gave up hope. She taught all of us to be kind, loving and giving. She dedicated her life to “her family”. You will be missed but never forgotten … She has five grandchildren and three great grandchildren who cherish her so. A committal service will be at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery, 21702 W. Espanola Rd. in Medical Lake, Washington.

Lorraine has always been thought of as a second mom my entire life. I remember her kindness was always such a big part of who she was. We spent a lot of time with her and the family growing up and those days will continue to be close at heart. Lorraine was a very hard worker who cared deeply for her family and friends. She had a wonderful smile with a spirit that matched. I know that Heaven has taken Lorainne with open arms and Jesus has held her in loving arms. I will certainly miss her but know that she is no longer in pain and will live eternally in the Kingdom of Heaven. Love to you Lorraine and Prayers for John and the family.
