PRINCETON – On Monday, July 27 at 2318 Lori Lynn Isoardi Biggs, my best friend and the love of my life, passed out of this world. She died peacefully and without pain in her sleep, surrounded by the love of our children and family. She will be desperately missed.
Lori was born on March 15, 1962, in Peoria, IL, the youngest of four daughters, to Joseph and Margaret (Barra) Isoardi of Roanoke, IL. She is survived by her husband, David; three devoted sons; Joseph Biggs of Toronto, ON, David (Alex) Biggs of Columbia, MO and Dominic Biggs of Princeton, IL; a sister, Diana Isoardi Smith of Tucson, AZ; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and beloved older sisters, Mary Isoardi Scheirer of Metamora, IL and Kathy Isoardi Traxel of Medicine Hat, AB.
Lori was a bright and bubbly force for fun, always looking for the next adventure. She had many interests; her curiosity took her everywhere from music, dancing, politics, crochet, painting, fostering small animals, yoga, hiking. If it caught her attention, she would cannonball into the pool. She loved decorating for holidays so much that she invented new ones just so she could have a reason to gather us together to celebrate.
She took her caring nature and inquisitive mind and turned it into a lifelong calling of caring and nurturing others before herself. Lori was an RN with a BSN that loved the work she did and the people she did that work with. To call her co-workers an extended family is to misunderstand Lori. They were her family and at the end they cared for her like no others could, putting their own pain aside to ease hers.
This is who Lori was, her ability to see the best in people and have hope was amazing to be a part of. Thirty-six years was far too short for me but I know we will meet again down the road. Until then, Love Always David.
A gathering to celebrate Lori's life will be scheduled at a later date.
