Lori's Story

Lori's story, as shared by her husband, Andy.


Lori and AndyLori went to her heavenly resting place at age 55 with her loving family at her side on October 11, 2013, due to an unexpected subarachnoid hemorrhage.


Lori married her soul mate, and they pledged their everlasting love for one another in 1976. Together, they were truly one heart and enjoyed always being together. They had three wonderful children: Eric, Angie and Amber.


Lori worked at educational institutions for most her life, assisting others to reach their educational dreams. Lori always had a kind, genuine smile, and was passionate about her work, always helping others, and, most importantly, spending time with her family. Her nine grandchildren were her most cherished treasures. Lori tremendously enjoyed spending time with her family, hunting, taking family vacations and riding matching John Deere lawnmowers with Andy.


Lori's final gift to others was providing life and hope to many families through the gift of organ donation, which was a complete testament to the beautiful person she always was. Through her gift of organ donation, she continues to give the gift of life.


Lori, you will forever be my best buddy, soul mate and best friend. I'll always love you, always and forever.


Until we meet again, hugs and kisses to my lady in red.




Your loving husband, Andy
