Lori knew her way around the kitchen and loved to cook for her family and friends every chance she got. Her home was always filled with wonderful scents of her home cooked meals, baked goods and of course her famous clam dip. When she wasn’t making one of her infamous meals, she would be spending her time watching her favorite sports teams, the Badgers, Brewers and the Packers. Lori would always have the latest scores and her thoughts about how everyone played. Lori was an outdoor enthusiast and loved bird watching. She always was full of wit and had an amazing laugh and smile that was contagious.
