Date of Passing: May 14, 2020Offer Condolences or Memory
LORI DAWN DERKSEN
Lori was predeceased by her husband Norman in 2015, as well as her father Wilfred (Marjorie).
She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her beloved daughter Nikki Feal; son Kristopher; grandchildren, Matthew and Audrey; her mother Laverne and stepfather Carl; sister Holly (Ray); brother Kevin; nephew Ray and nieces, Courtney and Jocelyn; as well as aunts, many cousins and treasured friends.
Lori had a rewarding career as an Educational Assistant working with children who required more one-on-one attention. She enjoyed trying new crafts and developed a passion and talent in each one she tried. She was also known for her yummy baking for any occasion and loved to sing.
Lori was a kind and loving soul who always was ready and willing to listen to anyone who needed. She will be greatly missed by all those whose lives she touched.
Cremation has taken place and a private family interment will be held at a later date.
"I hide my tears when I say your name,
but pain in my heart is still the same.
Although I smile and seem carefree,
there is no one who misses you
more than me."

We have lots of good memories of the Anderson family Xmas dinners at Nanny & Grandpa's in Grand Marais. All the hours we spent playing in the old cars that were parked at the back of Grandpa's garage. We all had a good time and visit with Lori at Alise's wedding in Alberta and at Michelle's wedding in San Antonio. When our sister Angie would come from Alberta to Pine Falls, Lori would visit and we would once again enjoy more happy times. We take comfort that Lori is no longer in pain and is with our loved ones in Heaven. All our love from your cousins Sharon & Trish. - Posted by: Sharon Mignon (Cousin) on: May 26, 2020
I have good memories of all the time that Lori Down spent with us working at the Birchwood during her teen years and later her visit to my home in Traverse Bay for her bridal shower and still later with her two children. Too many years passed so quickly. Our next good visits were at Alise's wedding in Alberta and Michelle's wedding in San Antonio. I so enjoyed seeing Lori Dawn. It was our last visit. May God take good care of her. Love from Auntie Ruby. - Posted by: Ruby Mignon (Aunt) on: May 26, 2020
I'm still shocked, she was my ex mother in-law. She was kind, thoughtful, and loving. So many memories that I will never forget. Unmeasurable. We have a few side bar chats which I will never forget. Very tragic, I will miss you Lori. - Posted by: Jason (Ex mother in-law) on: May 23, 2020

Met Lori in 1978 while attending Red River College. We became close friends, getting together often over the years. Will miss her hugs, smiles, and laughter. Love you dearly. - Posted by: KATHLEEN BRENNAN (FRIEND) on: May 23, 2020
