Lorrie moved back to LaSalle, Michigan after making her home in Key West, Florida where she had opened and operated a restaurant.   For fourteen years, she was employed as a waitress at Angelo’s Northwood Villa in Erie.  

She loved traveling with her sister, Lynn, and really enjoyed Jamaica but truly was fond of any Caribbean destination.   Lorrie, enjoyed being one with nature.   She often spent time just being outside visiting the park or hitting the fairways to play a round of golf at a local course.   She loved playing cards with Euchre being her favorite.   Lorrie loved planning parties at other people’s homes especially her annual Christmas Euchre party.   Although, Lorrie wasn’t a very good cook all her guests raved about her cheese ball and sausage plate.   Wherever, Lorrie went it was known that her signature drinks were Pepsi and chocolate milk.
