Lori Scruton

Neenah - Lori (Metz) Scruton passed away on Monday, January 4, 2021 after a courageous and tenacious battle with cancer. Born on July 12, 1964, to Robert and Bonnie (Vanden Broek) Metz of Neenah Wisconsin, she graduated from Neenah High School and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where she was a member of the Delta Zeta Sorority. She worked for over twenty years at Plexus Corporation in Neenah most recently with the Information Technology group.

Lori relished experimenting in the kitchen and frequently adapted new recipes with a nice glass of wine. She had a zealous love of Door County and the friends she traveled with. She was passionate about the Green Bay Packers and was always excited to attend games. Being a self-taught crafting enthusiast led to scheduled monthly get-togethers with her friends to exchange ideas. She shared the love of music with those around her and encouraged others to patron the PAC with her. Sitting around the cribbage board with her dad and daughters was a holiday tradition. Lori celebrated the community in which she lived and loved the concerts, parades, and community fests.

She is survived by her daughters Mikayla and Julia as well as her father Robert Metz; brother Todd Metz (Heather); her sister of the heart LeAnn Hoffmann; as well as her aunts, uncles, cousins, and nieces; many, many friends; her church family; her work family, and Frankel (her snuggly cat).

Lori was preceded in death by her mother Bonnie Metz; Uncle Clarence Fredrick; cousin Dave Fredrick; and Rick Scruton with whom she lovingly shared their girls.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lungevity (https://lungevity.org/for-supporters-advocates/support-our-work ). She was a passionate advocate for lung cancer awareness and worked to reduce the stigma that it is only a smoking disease. With Lungevity, she was able to speak about the disease, help organize conferences, and support and receive support from those also fighting.

A private memorial service will be held at Peace Lutheran Church in Neenah. To view the service, please visit the Westgor Funeral Home's Facebook page beginning on Friday, January 15, 2021 at noon. Lori will be laid to rest at Oak Hill Cemetery in Neenah. A celebration of life for the public will be planned for a later date.

Lori, I am grateful I had the chance to get to know you in the Live Strong Program. Your encouragement and positive outlook on life helped me through that time. Thank you for being such a gift for me and others. You will be a very special memory in my heart.

I was the hospice chaplain for Lori's mom (Bonnie Metz) and then years later met up with Lori through the Live-strong program at the YMCA. Despite her illness - Lori remained positive and supportive of others. She always put others first. Like her mom, Lori was a woman of faith, lived with a positive outlook and was always other centered. It was a privilege to know her and the family. Thinking of and praying for Bob and the family.

Lori is forever in my childhood memories. To this day, I think of her as I make numerous Christmas cookies that came out of her recipe files. She opened her kitchen up to me as a kid and I’m forever greatful for those moments with her and Mikayla. She will be missed

I don’t remember your youthful years when you lived in our neighborhood. We were all so busy working and raising our families. But, as years went by, I became more acquainted with your parents. Bob, i am so sorry for your loss. The obituary was a beautiful testament of Lori’s character and giving life.

To Lori’s children, your mom was a wonderful lady. I will remember her for her intelligence, dedication and positive attitude. She was a great person just to be around. I enjoyed our time together at Plexus. May you find peace.
