July 7, 1924 — February 3, 2017

Lorene N. Kautsch, 92, of Lohman, went to be with the Lord on Friday, February 3, 2017, at her residence.

Lorene was born July 7, 1924, in Climax Springs, Missouri, the daughter of the late George and Lydia (Scott) Percival.

Lorene was baptized in 1940 at Linn Creek Baptist Church.

In 1943, she was married to Russell L. Nichols from which this union came two daughters and one son. She later was united in marriage on August 5, 1974, to Edgar E. Kautsch who survives at the home.

Lorene owned and operated Stringtown Service Station from 1965-1975. She began working at K-Mart in Jefferson City in 1974, after the store opening until her retirement in 1987.

She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Stringtown.

After her retirement from K-Mart, she enjoyed working on the farm with Edgar. She loved gardening, bird watching, spending time with her family and cooking for them. There was never a dull moment being around Lorene. You never knew what mischievous things she might say to you.
