Lorraine Fischer (nee Fazendin), 90, of Maplewood, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 30, 2020. Preceded in death by her parents, Julia and Albert Fazendin and sister, Lucille Finnegan. Survived by husband, Peter A.; children, Peter M. (Kristi), Joseph (Susan), Teresa, Timothy, and Albert; grandchildren, Peter, Hannah, Emily, Alexandra, and Benjamin; and many other family and friends.

Lorraine was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Lorraine was born and raised in St. Paul on the East Side, Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood. She attended Sacred Heart grade school and graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy high school. She met her husband, Peter, while working for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She was very active in the local DFL party. For over 45 years she was involved with the City of Maplewood government including serving as Chairman of the city’s Planning Commission and as Chairman of the Housing and Redevelopment Authority. When the city of Maplewood was celebrating their first 50 years, Lorraine was listed as one of the ten most influential women in the city’s first 50 years. She was an avid volunteer; she spent almost 30 years volunteering for Catholic Charities, receiving the Archbishop’s Annual Award in 2007. She was also recognized in 2007 by Ramsey County as its Senior Woman of the Year. Lorraine was active in the Friends of the Library in Maplewood. She was active in the League of Women Voters Roseville/Metro. She was also active in her own parish, Sacred Heart in St. Paul. She liked to garden in her backyard; was extremely accomplished at needlepoint; she enjoyed reading mystery novels; and could complete the Sunday New York Times crossword in pen. She will be greatly missed.
