Lorene Frieda Batenhorst was born May 11, 1928, to Arlie and Frieda (Daberkow) Schultz on a farm north of Beemer, Nebraska. She attended a country school outside of Beemer for eight years, walking two miles to and from school each day. She graduated from Wisner High School in 1946, after which she took a secretarial job at Seemen Trucking in West Point, Nebraska. On September 27, 1950, Lorene married Bruno Batenhorst, and together they had four children; Boyd, Bonnie, Bryan and Beverly. In 1959, the family moved to Tilden, Nebraska, where Lorene was employed at Hofmann Pharmacy to help provide for the family. In 1974, the family moved to Blair where she worked until her retirement from the Fort Calhoun Stone Company. She served at Trinity Lutheran Church in many capacities, including teaching Sunday school for many years. Lorene enjoyed vacationing with her family, bowling, cooking, sewing, gardening, and attending her children’s activities. Lorene’s faith in God was an essential part of her life, and she took great pains to see that her children didn’t miss church or catechism. Her love for family and friends was expressed throughout her life by sending cards and letters on holidays and special occasions. Lorene was preceded in death by her son-in-law Randall Ashland, daughter Bonnie Lambrecht, husband Bruno, and her parents Arlie and Frieda Schultz. Lorene is survived by her brother Vernon (Lois) Schultz of Wisner, Nebraska, sons Boyd Batenhorst of Tilden, Nebraska, and Bryan (Michelle) Batenhorst of Lincoln, Nebraska, daughter Beverly (Kevin) Willis of Blair, Nebraska; thirteen grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews. Memorials may be directed to Trinity Lutheran Church in Lorene’s name.
