She was a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority.

Lori worked for the Ankeny School District as an accounting clerk. Always wanting to keep her mind busy, Lori enjoyed reading, knitting, sewing and game shows. Lori also collected snow men and enjoyed camping and old movies. The love of her life was her daughter, Sara.
