Lori leaves a legacy of love. She was loved and beloved by her devoted husband of 32 years, Gary Schilling. Family was her priority. She was a dedicated caregiver to her mother. She found so much joy in her family, friends, her church, her pets and her porch. Lori loved her title “housewife” and spending time with Gary and their pets on their porch was her favorite thing to do. Lori loved animals and from an early age, she would volunteer at the Animal Protection League. Lori loved everything Christmas and decorated their home top to bottom, inside and out. She also enjoyed camping trips and fishing with her husband.
