Cora Lachenmeier

April 11, 1927 - July 28, 2019

On July 28, 2019 Cora Lachenmeier went home to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Cora was born in Fredonia, North Dakota on April 11, 1927 to Fred and Ida Becker. She was one of eight children. She married Henry Lachenmeier in 1944 before moving to Lodi, California in 1955. They had three children and were married for 53 years. Cora worked as a cake decorator at Cottage Bakery and owned Towne Haus Fashions in Lodi until she retired. Cora genuinely loved the Lord and her faith guided everything she did in life. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Lodi for 64 years, the Soroptomist Club, and also was a faithful volunteer in the gift shop at Lodi Memorial for over 1500 hours. She was a wonderful seamstress, loved to cook and bake, play games with family and friends, travel, and enjoyed being involved in numerous bible studies.

Cora was preceded in death by her husband Henry, one brother, and two sisters. Cora is survived by her children Jerry (Sharon) Lachenmeier, Karen (Jim) Worthington, and Angie (Mike) Reiswig, grandchildren Gina (Robert) Aki, Tara (Mike) Silva, Corrine (Patton) Werner, Nicole (Brian) McKilligan, Ryan (Jamie) Reiswig, six great grandchildren, three brothers, one sister, and numerous nieces and nephews. Cora was dearly loved and will be missed by all of her family. Our family would like to give special thanks to Brookdale Memory Care in Lodi for their love and care.
