CLINTON — Marylorraine Therese Mussmann, age 95, of Clinton, passed away Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at the Alverno Health Care Facility. Visitation will be from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Sunday at the Pape Funeral Home. A Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, October 28, 2013 at Prince of Peace Catholic Church with visitation prior to Mass. Burial will be in St. Irenaeus Calvary Cemetery.

Placement of the Resurrection Pall will be done by her granddaughters. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, The Alverno Health Care Facility or the charity of your choice.

Marylorraine was born in Clinton on December 13, 1917, the daughter of Reinholdt and Anna (Harkins) Buelow. She married Leonard Mussmann on December 26, 1938 in Clinton. Leonard passed away August 17, 2004.

Marylorraine was a member of Prince of Peace Parish. She worked at Curtis woodworking company, as a cook at Porky’s and Chuck’s restaurant. She also worked at Swifts, Nielsens, the Clinton Garment company, and as an LPN at both the old and the new Alverno. She retired in 1980.

Marylorraine was a very productive and generous woman. An excellent example of her generosity is the time she spent making little teddy bears to be given to children admitted to the Emergency Room at Mercy Hospital. She especially enjoyed visiting with family and friends, a good game of cribbage, 500 or pinochle. She spent most of her retirement knitting and crocheting much of which was given as gifts.

Marylorraine is survived by two sons: Fred (Jackie) Mussmann of Clinton, Gregory Mussmann of Clinton; three daughters: Virginia “Ginny” (Ed) Wisor of Clinton, Sharon Mussmann of Albuquerque, New Mexico and Susan (Greg) Renier of Cincinnati, Ohio. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren, two bothers: Ralph (Joan) Buelow of Clinton, Earl (June) Buelow of Camanche and Grace Burke of Clinton.

She was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, a sister and a grandson.
