Lorraine Krenelka graduated from the St. Luke’s School of Nursing in Fargo before embarking on a nursing career that culminated in her service as a surgical nurse at St. John’s Hospital in Fargo. Following retirement, Lorraine was a hospice nurse for ten years. Her family established the Lorraine Krenelka Nursing Scholarship in 2007 to provide nursing education opportunities for employees at Bethany Retirement Living.
In the interest of providing nursing education opportunities for the employees of Bethany Retirement Living, the Lorraine Krenelka Endowed Nursing Scholarship Fund is made available through the generosity of Lorraine’s family. The scholarship is available to qualified Bethany Retirement Living employees who desire to expand and improve their skills in geriatric care.
