Lori Michelle Dockrey, 43, Colorado City, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, September 10, 2020.

She was born on November 25, 1976 at Root Memorial in Colorado City, Texas to Jim Dockrey and Christy Stubblefield Dockrey.

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.

Lori is survived by her father Jim Dockrey and wife Sherry of Colorado City, by her mother Christy Dockrey of Granbury, by her brothers Justin Dockrey and wife Shane of Midland and Lance Dockrey and wife Caroline of Kandern Germany, and by step-brothers Zach Anderson and wife Ashley of Corpus Christi and Jed Anderson and wife Misti of Canyon. Also surviving are two grandmothers, Dorris Dockrey and Ernestine O’dell, and her nieces and nephews Jaycee, Boston, Sadie, Dash, and Magnolia Dockrey, and Reece, Grant, Paisley, and Lynlee Anderson. She was preceded in death by her grandfathers C.N. Stubblefield and Harry Dockrey, by an uncle Bill Dockrey, and by cousins Coby Stubblefield and Kristin Lerette.

A funeral for Lori will be held at the First Baptist Church of Colorado City on Monday, September 14th at 2 pm with Doctor Jerry Shields officiating. Burial will follow at the Spade Cemetery.

Lori was a great friend. She was always the peace maker and the leader. She always made everyone around her a better person. Lori will be greatly missed by so many. It has been so long, but just seems like yesterday in the old neighborhood.

I still struggle with the simple fact that you are gone. Lori oh how you touched our hearts in so many ways. Like when you came to take pictures with us as Rufino had finally been able to adopt our youngest two.. or when I brought Syrrah home from the hospital and you brought her a Strawberry Limeade. You said I had to hold my hand out that window driving cause you know that things wasn’t coming in my car. When we put life 360 on the kids phones and you where taking Alex to Loraine and I called him and asked what was the emergency cause it said y’all where going 164 mph, you stated that this Honda don’t go this fast lol. Or when you talked to us about being baptized in the church. Wow how you have made a deep impression on our lives. Our lives will forever be changed. I am so very thankful that you where placed in our lives for the time we had you. We love you and are so thankful for the time we did have you..

Lori,
Such a beautiful soul and sweet spirit. I truly enjoyed our time together working in Children's Church, and VBS. You were always ready with a quick smile, and words of encouragement for children.
You will be missed, but I know you are with our Lord and Savior.
Continued Prayers for the family.

Mike and I send our deepest sympathy to the family. We remember Lori as a sweet but rambunctious little girl at the county stock show.

I’ve known Lori my entire life and she is one of those people who always lit up a room when she walked in. She did this by making everyone there feel as though they were the most important and putting others above herself. As kids, we always waited with anticipation for the moment cousin Lori would come down to grandma Jean’s house and visit. And we always loved every second of her time with us. That quality never changed and visiting C-City as an adult only brought back the same excited anticipation about if we would get to see Lori. She was always one of the most encouraging and upbeat people I’ve ever known. And I know she was this way because of her deep relationship with Jesus. I know that anticipation that we felt waiting to see her is only a small amount of what she must have felt knowing she was about to see Him face to face. To say she will be missed greatly is an understatement. Her being there will remove everyone’s connection to this world a little more and we will long for the day when we all reunite in heaven.
My deepest condolences go out to all of her family and close friends.
Love,
Danielle-ee

Lori, we served together working with students for many years. Your passion, love, wit, and consistency, made everything better and worth it. It's rare to share the bonds with those who know the workings of a Student Minister, especially those who do it well. You did it...very well. It is still unbelievable to me that this has happened. But, it only reminds me too that heaven is not that far away for those who know Christ. And the sting of death is not as harsh, knowing who is already there. I love you. It's been an honor working with you at Super Summer. And I will see you later. Because of the cross and the resurrection, a reunion is coming.

My favorite memory of you is everything ! You made smiling look so easy ... The next will be just watching how you loved on my kids you saw no color just kids and the future of them .... You always made me take two hotdogs lol .. My nx favorite memory is watching you be wheeled out the hospital and sending that beautiful smile on your face at that very moment I knew God and heaven was real .....How can a woman smile be so bright when she just got such bad news but it wasn’t bad news it was good because you finally get to meet the person you taught and lived by and that was Jesus .....

I am so sorry to hear of Lori’s passing. I lived across the street from the Dockrey’s and our summers were a real life “Sandlot” movie every day. Lori was the organizer, peacemaker and planner!
Prayers go out to the family, youth, and community for your loss.
I pray you can find comfort in knowing she heard the sweetest words a believer can hear from our Lord and Savior....Well Done My Good And Faithful Servant.
