Lori was a fiery youth and children's minister whose main passions were serving her Lord and leading others to a relationship with Jesus. She was a devout member of the First Baptist Church of Colorado City, where she worked for many years. Like a cool aunt, she was everyone’s number 1 fan. Lori was great with the family dynamic, and loved watching that family grow over the years. Lori exhibited a strong work ethic that she learned from her dad working on the farm. She learned from her mother how to create a very detailed itinerary which always came in handy when she scheduled the church’s youth trips. Lori was an avid sports fan, and loved talking sports with almost anyone. She attended the games of all her students when she could. She was also a season ticket holder to Texas Tech Red Raider Football. Lori had many interests in life such as trivia, sharing inside jokes, collecting pigs, and traveling with her mother and cousin Kamie. Above all she was an active friend and role model for all of her students past and present. Lori graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Masters of Arts in Christian Education which she used in her job with the First Baptist Church. Over her life she belonged to many organizations and boards, including: Secretary for the Board of The West Texas Children's Advocacy Center, Executive Staff at Super Summer Camps, Fellowship of Christian Athletes Huddle Coach for Colorado I.S.D., Texas Baptist Conclave Board, The Mitchell County Ministerial Alliance, Rachel’s Challenge for Anti-bullying, and RAD Self Defense Training.
