Lorene moved to Hastings, NE in 1955. She was employed at Mode O’ Day sewing factory as a piecework seamstress for four and one-half years. On November 7, 1959, she married Francis Trausch and they lived in rural Roseland where they raised their family of three boys and one girl. Francis passed away in 2007.

Lorene was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and Altar Society. She led the rosary at daily and Sunday masses and served as President and Treasurer of the Sacred Heart Altar Society, and served on the Parish board and renovation committee. Lorene took care of the church and town flowers for many years. She enjoyed gardening and flowers and was a member of Grandmothers and Auto Bowling leagues and a Pitch card club for many years.
