Lori Ann Love, 1958-2018


Having lost my parents, my only brother and a sister, I tend to feel deeply for friends and family who suffer the passing of a family member. There is so much to do when a loved one dies, that the normal activities in life can feel overwhelming.  And since I’m unable to be present and act as a buffer between the family and those meaning well, I offered to help my friend, Frank and his family by doing the only thing I’m decent at, which is writing and I thank you for the honor…

Lori Ann Love was born July 15, 1958 in Crescent City, California to Doris and Darrell Love. She passed away at the age of 60, from heart failure in Eugene, Oregon.

Lori went to several elementary schools including one in Rio Vista, California, Gasquet Elementary and Lake Earl Elementary before attending Crescent Elk Middle School. She graduated from Del Norte High School in 1976 where she lettered in Varsity Basketball and excelled as a drummer in the school’s Marching Band.

Following graduation, Lori went to work for Kacy’s Market, learning to cut meat under journeyman butcher, Dean Hupp. She moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, where she worked for Smith’s Food and Drug Stores. Once back in Crescent City, she took a position with Shop Smart Food Warehouse and often helped her brother Frank at Crescent Meats and Pacific Market.

Lori leaves behind not only her parents, but brother’s Darrell Love, Jr., and Frank Love. She’s survived by many others including: Dan, Sara Bellinger, Megan Love Fears, Laural, Jackson, Elizabeth, Leya, Kyle, Tristan, Riley, Andrew, Emily, Taylor, May, Braedon, Julia, Max; Ann Cliff Cutter, Margie, Gordon, Jim, Marty, Maready, Kathy, Deborah, and Teresa.

Aside from always smiling and being the greatest daughter, sister and auntie ever, Lori would help whomever needed it. She loved her many friends including Jean Rupert, Sabrina Custer, Kelly Doan, Lori Wilma Wilson, Shelley and Ti Davis, and the late Jayson Cantrell.

And finally, a big thanks to Diane and Joe Stuart for tossing Lori a great 60th birthday party. The Love Family loves all of you that showed your support and generosity during our time of grief and we will forever be grateful for your prayers and condolences.
