She was a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority.
Lori worked for the Ankeny School District as an accounting clerk. Always wanting to keep her mind busy, Lori enjoyed reading, knitting, sewing and game shows. Lori also collected snow men and enjoyed camping and old movies. The love of her life was her daughter, Sara.
Lori is survived by her daughter, Sara, of Elkhart; siblings Judith (William) Johnston of Green Valley, Calif., William Lindo of Austin, TX, Debra (Aldei) LeBlanc of Southbridge, Mass., Donna (Robert) Wasson of Lynn, Mass., Lisa (Zach) Douglas of Ankeny, Tina (James) Conwell of Princeton, MO, Terri (Steven) Keasey of Alleman and Sherri (Justen) Wilson of Elkhart; many nieces and nephews and her dogs, Brody and Starr. Lori was preceded in death by her parents, a brother, Michael Lindo and a sister, Nancy Corley.
