She started her employment with a social services agency and later went to work for Bank of Oklahoma in the data entry department. Lori had a passion for OU football. Even at age 9, game days you would find her front and center of the tv shouting “Go, Billy Sims, Go”! She enjoyed league bowling with friends on Friday nights at Sheridan Lanes. Annual events Lori and Ron enjoyed together were the Tulsa State Fair and the Chili Bowl Nationals. At home, you could find Lori watching “Walker, Texas Ranger” and “Chips”. She never grew tired of watching them. She had a talent for working large jigsaw puzzles and you could be sure she had a crossword or word search book with her wherever she went. She had a fondness for horses and her companion cat, Fuzzy. Lori was a part of an in home bible study group and accepted Jesus Christ as her savior in 2017. Birthdays were her most favorite family gatherings. Being with her nieces brought such joy to her. She leaves us all with the memory of her love and laughter. She made us smile.
