She loved her family dearly and shared her faith in Jesus Christ with them and nearly everyone she met either by personal conversations or by one of her letters. She was convinced that there is a heaven and the ONLY way to get to a life there is to admit to being a sinner, believing that Jesus is God's Son and that He died to pay for our sins, and confessing that Jesus is The Lord of her life. She will be waiting in Heaven for all those who believe, to join her in eternally praising The Lord.
Flowers are lovely but they fade away as do we, therefore any contributions or donations will please be made to Pleasant Valley Church to continue sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, as it was shared with Lorrie many years ago.
Lorrie was a proud U.S. Air Force Veteran and served in the Korean Conflict.
Private Interment with Military Honors will be held at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery, Rittman, OH. Pastor Jordan Johnson is to conduct Lorrie's "Going Home" Service at the National Military Cemetery in Rittman hopefully somewhere near the music.
