Lori Gillson-Herron, also known as "Ma Dukes", a beloved local sales representative, from Brooklyn New York, passed away on February 28th, 2021 at age 54, after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer.
Lori was born on March 3rd, 1966 to Mother Vivian Barile and Father Daniel Gillson. Lori is survived by her Stepfather Joseph Barile, her Aunt Judy, Uncles Charlie and Billy and cousins Danny, Kimberly and Crystal, as well as her second and third cousins Kristen, Joshua, Faith, Justin, Joel and Maddie and her beloved boyfriend Paul Patneaude.
Lori had an energetic personality and a heart like no other, she touched many lives with her generosity and passion for life. Lori did not have any children of her own, however, she was "Ma" to so many who were lucky enough to consider her a Bonus Mom. She would make herself available day or night for anyone who may be struggling and needed her support. She was one of a kind and her presence is deeply missed, but the memories she created will never be forgotten. Lori had a true love for all animals but especially her own fur babies, Abby, Shadow and Matrix.
