Lorraine K. Joslin

Lorraine K. Joslin, age 60 of Rhinelander, passed away Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018 at Ascension St. Mary's Hospital. Lorraine was born at Westover Air Force Base in Westover, Massachusetts, on April 13, 1958, the daughter of Charles and Mabel (Krause) Daley. Being part of an Air Force family, Lorraine called many places home. She was in high school when her family decided to move to Rhinelander. She graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1976. During her high school years and for many years after, Lorraine was employed with M & I Bank. In the early 1980s she participated in a softball league during her free time. She was united in marriage at St. Joseph Catholic Church on Sept. 22, 1984, to Randy L. Joslin. Lorraine's loving and caring nature led her to in-home child care for many years. In 1989, life changed for Lorraine and Randy as they welcomed the birth of their daughter Molly. When Lorraine was in middle school, she participated in gymnastics. Though it was only for a short time, her love of gymnastics carried over to watching her daughter participate in the same sport. Lorraine always loved music, dancing, classic horror movies and camping with family and friends. Later in life she would become self-employed as a house keeper. At this time, she enjoyed the simple pleasures of taking walks, bird watching crafting a rock garden and volunteering at "The Table". She will be remembered for her creativity, from decorating her home to making Molly's Halloween costumes. She will also be remembered for having a green thumb, as well as her baking and cooking skills and her love of animals. Lorraine's legacy, passion and labor of love was always being the best mom she could to Molly.

She will be dearly missed by her loving daughter, Molly Joslin (Tyler Paugel) of Rhinelander; three sisters, Yvonne "Bonnie" Daley, Dianne (Lyle) Gray, Mary (Darrell) May; four brothers; Roger (Darlene) Daley, William "Bill" (Vicki) Daley, Dennis (Judy) Daley and Mike (Valerie) Daley. Also surviving are nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and other relatives and family. Lorraine was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Mabel Daley; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Ray and Stella Joslin; husband Randy Joslin on Feb. 6, 2018; two sisters-in-law, Joan Juedes and Linda Bigelow; and by one nephew and his wife, Travis (Heather) Juedes. The visitation for Lorraine will be held on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 from 11 a.m. until the 2 p.m. candlelight service.

Immediately following the service, everyone is invited to process with the family to Forest Home Cemetery for the Committal Service. Molly would like to thank all of her extended family and friends for their love and support, and a very special thank you to Tom Kniewel from Hildebrand Funeral Home & Cremation Specialists for his assistance and compassion during this difficult time.
