Lori Anne O’Brien passed peacefully on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the age of 53. She is survived by her best friend and husband, Ted, children Cody and Casey, father Tom, sister Jeni, brothers Pat, Scott, and Mick, and sisters-in-law Marie and Piper. She was preceded in death by her mother Marilyn and cousin Dori.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 with visitation from 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM, service from 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM, and reception/light lunch at 12:00 PM. All family and friends are welcome to join.

Lori was an open ear, a forgiver, a whenever-you-need-her, whatever-you-need-her-for daughter, sister, wife, and mother. She lived a quiet life spent feeling proud and mindful of the people that she loved. She cared for her family without expectation of reciprocity. She was stubborn without fail. She was raw and real, never pretentious. She wielded weapons of strength and resilience as if she’d been born with them in hand. Whenever she was too hard on herself, her family made sure to be soft on her to make up for it. She knew, above all, that life is for the loving. And we loved her all of the days of her complicated, beautiful life.

Among the baby pictures and rosaries on her bedside table sits a passage that gave her much comfort:

“All who are weary,

all who are burdened down,

come to me and I will give you rest.

 

My yoke is easy,

my burden feels so light.

Come to me,

come to me,

come to me and I will give you rest.”

 

Angels on your pillow, Lori Anne.
