Lorraine Jesmer Randall passed away on April 22, 2020.
She was born in Norfolk, N.Y. on April 14, 1924 daughter of the Rev. Maurice Jesmer and Florence Smithers Jesmer.
Lorraine received her Th.B at United Wesleyan College in Allentown, PA, and then took graduate studies at SUNY in Potsdam and Plattsburg.
She taught school in Philadelphia, N.Y, Friendship, N.Y., and 17 years at Queensbury Elementary School.
Retiring from teaching, she felt called into the ministry and co-pastors of Wesleyan Churches in Proton, Ont., Canada, Forestdale, Vt., Gouveneur, N.Y., and Stony Creek, N.Y..
She also pastored United Methodist Churches in Riparius, Wevertown, and Johnsburg.
Lorraine expressed her love for music as a choir director, church organist and piano teaching. But her most cherished activity was teaching Bible studies to adult classes in the church she attended as well as in neighborhood homes.
She is predeceased by two brothers, Ronald and Olen Jesmer. She is survived by three children: Laurie Capen, April Wood (Virgil husband), and Stephen Randall (Tina wife), two granddaughters and two great grandchildren.
Lorraine's priority in life was to live for the Lord and serve Him as best she could.
