Lorrie Davis, 65, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 24, 2018, at her home in The Woodlands, TX. Her signature gift of joy, strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and support of family and friends, carried her through a relentless year of battling brain cancer. Lorrie was born on September 3, 1952 in Redwood Falls, Minnesota to Duane and Maren Jacobson. She graduated with a degree in Elementary Music Education at Southwest Minnesota State University where she worked as a disk jockey and spent a summer traveling throughout Europe singing and performing with her college choir. Before relocating to Texas, she began her teaching career in her home State of Minnesota. A Minnesota girl at heart, Lorrie fell in love with Texas' charm and spent 25 years teaching music at Ford and Houser Elementary schools where she touched the lives of hundreds of children, sharing her love of music. In 2011, she received Houser's Teacher of the Year award honoring her 37-year career. She was actively involved in her church, performing in the church choir, volunteering weekly at the church book store and traveling to Costa Rica on mission work. She lovingly cared for her husband Carl after he was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's. With a passion for travel, Lorrie spent her retirement traveling to Israel, Jordan, the Czech Republic and Poland with the church choir, as well as Minnesota, Oregon, Colorado and many other locations spending time with friends and family. She had a smile that lit up a room and a great laugh. She enjoyed spending summers in Minnesota. She loved playing cards, red wine, chocolate, and her pug Heidi. She was a gifted baker and an exceptional hostess. She enjoyed transforming her home with decorations for every holiday. She used her creative talents to make thoughtful cards, scrapbooks, and decorations, never forgetting a birthday, anniversary, special occasion or a friend in need. She loved being a mother and devoted her life to making sure her children never doubted their importance in her world. Hers is a legacy of joy and being good to people. Her open heart gave everyone a glimpse of the grace and love she saw in the world. The way she lived her life is reflected in those she left behind - fiercely loyal friends who visited her daily during her illness, showering her with love and support, and her family who benefited from a lifetime of her love and attention and will honor her life by striving to reach the standard she set.

Lorrie will lovingly be remembered by her husband of 15 years, Carl, her children Matt (Iliana), Michele (Kevin), and Megan (Mitch), her mother Maren Jacobson, and her siblings Janet (Melecio) Bugarin and Tom (Joni) Jacobson. She will also be fondly remembered by her nephews Spencer, Elliot and Maxwell Jacobson as well as numerous cousins, extended family and dear friends.

Lorrie was preceded in death by her father, Duane Jacobson.

There will be a Memorial Service at Robb Chapel in The Woodlands United Methodist Church, 2200 Lake Woodlands Drive, The Woodlands, TX, 77380, on Friday, September 14, 2018 at 2 pm. Reception to follow.

The family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support in many heart-felt forms from her friends and family. In lieu of flowers and to honor Lorrie's love of music and devotion to the church choir, memorial donations can be made to:
