Lori Lynne Doerr Richards
July 16, 1956 ~ Feb. 4, 2011
Our beautiful, amazing, inspiring mother, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt, coach and friend returned to the loving arms of her Savior on February 4, 2011. Lori was born in Long Beach, California to Bonnie Whitney and Carl Doerr. She attended Millikan High School, Long Beach City College, and later attended Brigham Young University on a volleyball scholarship. Lori married her best friend, David Richards on May 1, 1981. Together they were part of a volleyball dynasty. They created a club volleyball program and through it, both taught and inspired passion for the sport to young players across the nation. Lori coached volleyball at UVCC (UVU) for nineteen years and was later inducted into both the Utah Coaches Hall of Fame and the NJCAA Hall of Fame. She was also a well-loved and passionate professor of community health and elementary education at UVU for 30 years teaching thousands of her adoring students. Lori served her Savior with love and compassion demonstrating creativity and humor as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Primary, Young Women's, Sunday School and Relief Society. Lori's greatest legacy is the great love she had for the gospel of Jesus Christ, her family and friends. She changed the lives of all who knew her. Her children, Lauren (Taylor Evans), Kristin, Andrew and Taylor were her greatest joy. She is survived by her husband, her children, her granddaughter Merit, her siblings, Diane Doerr Gardner (Bruce), Brent Doerr (Becky), and the thousands who have known and loved her throughout her life.
