We encourage you to share your personal
condolences and stories of Lori Ellen Hanff below and
we will share them with the family.

Ellie Wolf

Lori's engaging smile and infectious laughter would light up the room.
Her trademark was to smile and persevere in the face of adversity.
May her place now be with eternal comfort and peacefulness.

Ben Wolf

hopefully now she will have peace and rest after a life of struggle. She will be forever missed.

Nancy Levinson

Lori really cracked me up; I remember one time we were at a mutual friends house and she had us all laughing hysterically. Also when I got my masters degree Lori and I had some meaningful talks. May her neshamah ascend to great heights.

Nancy Morin

I remember wanting to be Lori's friend when we first knew each other in WRP; she was always so much fun to be around.
It was only after we both moved away that we really connected and formed a close friendship. I will always be grateful for that, and for being able to help her realize her dream of visiting Israel again and being able to spend that time with her.

Rest in peace my dear friend, with no more pain or sorrows.

Myriam Miller

Lori was always such an inspiration, with her smile and laughter, even in the toughest times. She shone such a bright light and I will miss her in this world very much. May she have a great aliya in the next.

Glenn Tocci

Youre with HaShem & in my heart forever old friend... G-d bless.. Will miss you ...
