Lorie was so kind, caring, and compassionate.  She would do anything to help anyone in need.  She was called to nursing and was a devoted nurse for 35 years and did everything she could for her staff and patients.  Lorie enjoyed spending time with her family, cooking, traveling, crafting, and scrapbooking.  Most importantly she enjoyed spending time with Kate and their dog Indi.  Kate, Lorie, and Indi went everywhere together traveling all over as Lorie was a traveling nurse and went all over the United States helping people in need.  She was a part of the beginning of the Deaconess call center.  Lorie was an advocate for equality and fair treatment.  They also enjoyed dressing up and doing historic programs.  Lorie also enjoyed helping people turn their photos into scrapbooks with her Creative Memories business.  She had also recently started being a Pampered Chef Consultant.  Lorie also loved playing poker in her spare time and had been in many poker tournaments over the years including the World Poker Tournaments.
