Lake Lorraine namesake dies

From staff reports

The namesake of the Lake Lorraine development has died.

Hilda Lorraine Friessen

Hilda Lorraine Friessen died May 27 at age 87.

She was the matriarch of the Friessen family, which has owned the property southwest of 26th Street and Marion Road for decades.

Friessen was born in Sioux Falls and, among other jobs, did book work for the family business, Friessen Construction Co.

“Hilda’s top priority was family,” her obituary reads. “Hilda was definitely the matriarch of the family and put everyone’s needs before her own. It is only fitting the family’s Lake Lorraine development in western Sioux Falls be named after her middle name.”

The Friessen family is co-developing the project with Van Buskirk Cos. It has gained considerable momentum in the past couple of years, with multiple large businesses opening this year, including, Grand Living and several national retailers.
