The family would like to thank the Palliative Care Team at Mayo Clinic for their compassionate care during her stay. They would also like to thank their family and friends for their support and prayers, which made us feel loved during this difficult time.

Lori will be remembered for her contagious smile, her positive attitude and support of others. She will be missed. Prayers for all of her family.
I was blessed to work with Lori during her years in the Triton School District. From the moment I met her at her job interview, I knew she was an exceptional teacher who would have a great impact on her students. It is a great loss to see such a vibrant, passionate educator succumb to the ravages of cancer. May her loving family find peace in their faith and in the cherished memories that they have of Lori. Sending condolences and prayers.
Lori had a beautiful impact on me, as on everyone, which was true to her. May perpetual light and love be with her.
