LORRAINE ROTHACKER died from complications of Alzheimer's disease. Lorraine, a 35-year resident of Livermore, was born Lorraine Ruth Schlag, the youngest of 12 children to Elizabeth Bitz Schlag and John Schlag. She graduated from McClusky High School in 1945. She married Lloyd Rothacker on June 10, 1945 in Denoff, North Dakota. In 1950, she and Lloyd moved their family to California. Lorraine successfully pursued several careers including Bookstore Manager at Chabot College in Hayward and St. Mary's College in Moraga, Fingerprint Technologist for the Sheriff's Department in Alameda County, Records and Communications Supervisor for the City of Livermore Police Department and finally, part time Office Manager at the Veteran's Administration. Lorraine had a green thumb and was affectionately donned, the Crazy Gardener. She loved growing orchids, roses and most any type of plants. She and Lloyd worked tirelessly on the gardens. She was a voracious reader and shared her love of books with all those around her. She volunteered in the 1980's in an Adult Literacy program at Alameda County Jail at Santa Rita. Lorraine and Lloyd made 11 trips to Hawaii which was a great source of pleasure of them. Married 53 years, Lorraine never truly recovered from Lloyd's death in 1998. Lorraine is survived by her sister, Albena Lang of Minot, North Dakota; her son and daughter-in-law, Curt and Leta Rothacker of Livermore, CA; her daughter and son-in-law, Sandra and Mike Baer of El Cerrito, CA; her nephew and niece, Mike and Karen Stroh of Pleasanton, CA and many cousins, nieces and nephews in both the Schlag and Rothacker families who will miss her. A memorial service will be held at Callaghan Mortuary, Tuesday, November 16, 2004, at 1:00 p.m. A closed casket celebration opportunity will be 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Private graveside services will be held the following day.
