Obituary for Gertrude "Gert" Lorang

Gertrude “Gert” Lorang, 100, year’s young of Great Falls passed away on January 2, 2019 at Park Place Nursing Home.

The family would like to greet friends and family on Sunday, January 6, 2019 form 7 to 9 pm at O’Connor Funeral Home to visit and reminisce about their Mom. The funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Monday, January 7, 2019 at O’Connor Memorial Chapel. Burial will follow at Mount Olivet Cemetery.

Gert was born on July 15, 1918 in a log cabin, on her father’s land near Comanche, Montana. She was the third of thirteen children born to Louise and George Carney.

Gertrude married Joe Lorang on June 29, 1940 and soon was working with her husband on the ranch near Eden, Montana. Some of Gert’s hobbies were crocheting, raising chickens, gardening (flowers and vegetables) and feeding and raising cattle with her husband. She was the McCumber School Clerk for 14 years and a member of the Eden Altar Society until the building was sold, and since 1950 had been a member of the Eden Homemakers.

Some of her amazing accomplishments were going from very little money, no electricity, or running water to having all of it. For 12 wonderful years she resided at the Lodge before going into Park Place Nursing Home where she lived for the past three years. The family would like to thank the staff at Park Place for the outstanding care they gave Gert.

Gert is survived by two sons, Dennis (Ruth Ann) Lorang and Norman Lorang; a daughter Karen (Sam) Steffan all of Great Falls, and Janice Steensrud, who was like a daughter to Gert. She has eight grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren; two brothers, and two sisters.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Joe of 63 years, a daughter-in-law; Anita Lorang and eight siblings.

Memorials are requested to be sent to the Eden Community Hall, 1350 Eden Road, Great Falls, Montana 59405.
