I became instant friends with Lori when I started at FHS she taught me how to go my makeup and a quicker way to do my hair. She always would sing or hum but mostly she was happy. RIP lady... You'll never be forgotten and I hope you and Sherry are doing Karaoke together.

Lori will always be remembered as sweet and kind. She always had a beautiful smile on her face and she was friendly to everyone. My precious memory of her was when we lost my sister, Betty Jane Slayton, Lori called O'dell Funeral Home and told them she would be doing my sister's hair. Lori had always been my sister's hairdresser. I appreciated that so much, but that was the kind person Lori was. She is loved and missed.

I'll always remember that big smile and the way life danced in her eyes. Lori had such a kind soul. Heaven gained a beautiful soul and the world lost such a kind spirit. Praying for the family and asking for comfort in the coming days. She loved unconditionally and made sure you knew she cared about you. I'm here if needed any time day or night. Just remember it's not goodbye but I'll see you on the other side. Much love to Scott Beverly and Johnny. I've known you all almost my entire life. God speed Lori
