Lorae Joan (Ingalls) Nieuwendorp was born on December 14, 1935 to Vernon and Carrie (Diekevers) Ingalls in Rock Rapids, Iowa. Lorae graduated from Sheldon High School and then attended Ellsworth Community College. In December 1954 Lorae was united in marriage to Robert Shane at the Methodist Church in Sheldon, Iowa.

October 2013, Lorae was united in marriage to Don Nieuwendorp at the Central Baptist Church in Sioux City, Iowa. She enjoyed her retirement years with Don at their home in Sioux City, Iowa. Music was a big part of her life; she belonged to various music organizations and wrote her own music. She enjoyed playing cards and morning coffee with friends at Hy-Vee. She also enjoyed being outside taking care of her beautiful yard and flowers. Lorae’s grandchildren have always been a very important part of her life and knew her as “Gramma Rae or Nana.” When she talked to her children or grandchildren on the phone, she would always end the call by saying “Love you, bye” which they all still do to this day.
