She was a wonderful woman and I’m so glad my children had her as their principal. She made the school such a welcoming place. She was tough and the kids were afraid but at the same time they all knew she loved them ! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better!!

Dear Scott, I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family during this time of sorrow. Lori was a wonderful woman …with a beautiful smile. She had you, a devoted spouse. She held her babies in her arms and knew the thrill of grandkids charms. She was a warrior against the scourge of cancer. She will be missed.
May you find strength in what remains behind.
