Lorie was born on July 6, 1961 in Marshfield, the daughter of Valmore "Butch" and Virginia (Gardner) Prust. She was united in marriage to Tim Adler on June 25, 1988 in Marshfield. They enjoyed perfecting and spending time on their patio, going to the cabin with Butch and Ginny, and watching their boys grow up. Together, Lorie and Tim spent their time reminiscing on the past, enjoying the present, and looking forward to the future. According to Lorie, her life didn't actually begin until November 30th, 1989, when she gave birth and became a mother for the first time to her son Michael. Her life became complete when she gave birth to her second son, Daniel on November 17th, 1991. Lorie said that all she ever wanted in life was to be a mother. Anyone who was lucky enough to come into her life would agree that her boys were the most important thing to her. She put her heart and soul into being the best mother she could possibly be, and made it a point to never miss any of her son's sporting events or banquets. It is agreed upon by all that know her that she put everything she had into raising her two boys, and they were her pride and joy.
Lorie was employed by the Marshfield School District as a teacher's assistant in the Special Education Department. She had a special gift of connecting to each and every one of her students, no matter what disability or background they had. She pushed each and every child that she worked with to be the best student, and more importantly best person they could possibly become. Her students were considered her "other" kids, and they influenced her life as much as she influenced theirs. She spent countless hours with her students at the Special Olympics, celebrating accomplishments and appreciating all the hard work that the athletes put in.
Lorie loved being with her family and friends. Her absolute favorite thing to do was to go up north with her family, ride on the boat, and watch her boys tube and water ski. She loved sitting by the campfire, trading stories, and reminiscing on old times. Lorie enjoyed taking pictures of anything and everything, especially hummingbirds and her flowers. Her favorite things were fairly simple, yet significant and meaningful to her.
Lorie's favorite memories were her countless family trips to Packer Training Camp and trips to Florida with her family and "third son", Brad. She cherished the countless memories that were made on these vacations, and looked forward to these trips every year.
Although they were only in her life for a small amount of time, Lorie was so grateful that Jess and Ben were brought into Michael's and the rest of her family's lives. She was very passionate about telling everyone and anyone about how much she loved both of them, and about how exited she was to be a grandma to Ben.
Her family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all of their family and friends who have been there for support and help with Lorie before, during, and after her sickness, especially Ann Gillett, Renee Guldan, Rose Hall, JoAnn Reigel, and Julie Johnsrud.
Lorie is survived by her husband Tim, their sons, Michael (Jess Itzen) and Daniel, and her grandson Ben. She is also survived by her mother, Virginia Prust of Marshfield and her brother, Larry Prust of Wisconsin Rapids. She is further survived by countless other family members and friends, which she also considered family.
She was preceded in death by her father, Butch, in 2011.
