In 2013 Lorri was blessed with her first grandbaby, Shaine. Shaine and Lorri were best friends. Saturday mornings you could always plan on seeing the two of them running wild down the isles at the grocery store together. She was blessed with another grandbaby, Natalie, in April of 2017. Lorri had worked at Somont Oil Company for about the last 10 years. There she formed a strong bond with many of the employees.
Lorri enjoyed spending any chance she had with her close friends Joni, Julie and Linda. She enjoyed reading and dancing to the Hokey Pokey with her grandkids. Lorri was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She had the biggest heart and would do anything for anyone that crossed paths with her.
