Lorry was born on November 4, 1935 in Portland, Oregon, where she lived until the age of 19, when she joined the United States Navy.

Lorry was a devoted Catholic and member of Saint Margaret’s Catholic Church, where she once led the choir, played the piano, and taught Catechism. Following her husband’s passing, she took up competitive roller-skating with her children, winning several competitions.

I was 15 years old when I met Lorry for the first time. I loved getting to sit with her and talk about just anything. I will never forget once Shawn and I had Kaylee, we called her to let her know of Kaylee's arrival she said "I have always been a great grandma but now I am really a great grandma." When Hannah was born she was over the moon and told me she had the greatest granddaughters. She never failed to mention how great she and the girls were. I love her so much and miss her every day. I am forever grateful that she is with our heavenly father and the rest of the family that met her at the gates of heaven.
