Lori married Cypriano (Sepe or Cy) on October 24, 1992, in Nagales, Santa Cruz, Arizona. Her life revolved around being a wife, mother and homemaker. Lori especially loved being a mom to her two daughters. Taking pictures, going to yard sales, cake decorating and taking care of her pets, were some of the things she loved to do. Lori loved animals especially her dogs in addition to all her many relatives and friends. Coming to Wyoming each summer to visit usually was the highlight of her year as she visited, laughed and had such fun with everyone. She loved her jobs and co-workers in Arizona and later Colorado. Lori was so sincere in her feelings for everyone dear to her. She had a great love of people and had a way of making them feel comfortable.

Even with her long multiple battles with breast cancer, during the last 20 years which caused her great difficulties and pain, she maintained her sweet pleasant attitude, beautiful smile and love of life. Lori wanted desperately to live and raise her girls, which she did accomplish.
