It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved Lori on May 11, 2021.
Lori impacted and touched the heart of everyone she came across. She loved so very deeply and would help anyone in need. Once she welcomed you into her life, you were forever family. Her memory will be cherished forever by all.
She will continue to be held in the hearts of her loving husband John, of 43 years, son Michael (Kari), daughter Ashley (Adam), Jenn (Glen), grandsons, Noah, Lucas and Linkin, as well as her adoring father Percy Paracholski, her sisters and brothers, countless nieces and nephews, and her extended Zylstra family. Lori was predeceased by her mother Irene Paracholski, who was her very best friend.
Lori was most proud of her family. They meant the world to her, and she would say that was her biggest accomplishment. She would text or call every day, and never let you go without an I love you. She gave the best hugs, lit up the room with her smile, and had the most contagious laugh. It was never a dull moment with Lori, she had a wicked sense of humour and she would take every opportunity to embarrass you with her silly dance moves in public. Her intoxicating personality allowed everyone to feel accepted for who they were, as she was forever joking, pranking, and was never too old to run through a sprinkler or throw water balloons. Lori loved flowers, gardening and cooking, all traits she was proud to have gained from pastimes with her mom. Everything about Lori was special. Our only regret is that if we had known that the last time we saw you, would be the last time we saw you.
Private family interment will take place at Green Acres Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
