It with a heavy heart that I share the news about Lorri passing away on
Saturday. Her uplifting spirit and desire to help others was evident even in
her last days. She endured the trials of the debilitating ALS disease and
always lived life to its fullest. I was so happy when I learned that she was
chosen to carry the Olympic Torch when passing through San Francisco. Such a
wonderful and treasured feat for a deserving individual!
She will be missed but never forgot.
Note: Lorri was a race walker, USATF Official and much much more...
Lorri's friends have taken on the task of setting everything up and are
trying to accommodate Lorri's brother and niece coming out here from NJ.
The memorial mass will be at St. Sebastian's Church, 373 Bon Air Road,
Greenbrae on Saturday November 15th at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Lorri's ALS Chapter.
