  • My sweet Lori, it hurts my heart to hear your beautiful soul is no longer on this earth. You brought so much light to my days. Your laugh was contagious and your personality lit up every room. I will always remember the way you would greet me when I got to work. You will always hold a special place in my heart. your girl, Emma - Posted by: Emma (Resident Assistant (St. Amant)) on: Apr 24, 2021

  • Dear sweet Lori, you always made me laugh, I will miss that beautiful smile. Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Brenda (Volunteer (St Amant)) on: Dec 18, 2020

  • I always thought it was appropriate that Lori Anne's intials spelt out laf and that she was born on April fools day. She certainly loved to play jokes and had a great sense of humour. She would often lock me in the bathroom, given the chance,by driving her chair in front of the door so I couldn't open it, laughing and giggling the whole time! So many fun times over the years I knew her and she was dearly missed when she moved on from St Amant. Condolences to Lori Anne's family - Posted by: Michele (St Amant friend) on: Dec 17, 2020

  • Lori-Ann, in my 15 yrs of working at St Amant, you brought such joy and spark to my days. I can still hear your deep belly laugh, as you called one of us “ turkey” or told me “It’s be nice to_____day” ( another staff’s name)! Or told me you didn’t like ____, with a big grin and twinkle in your eye.! Oh my gosh, heaven better watch out. Rest In Peace sweetie. - Posted by: Sally (RA on 1west and Day Services Instructor) on: Dec 13, 2020

  • I will always remember her driving around the halls in her chair asking where her group was. She had quite the personality! I missed seeing her around after she moved out, because of Covid we couldn't have a goodbye party for her. :( Rest in peace Lori.
