Beverly Rose

My Lorrie Pooh,
We took 2 memorable trips together, one to Club Med in Mexico, one to Rancho La Puerta. You were always too cold and I was always too hot! So you kept putting clothes on and I kept taking clothes off! In spite of that difference, we had such good times and created beautiful memories. And now, dear friend, you, your essence, your goodness, your joyful being, is my most cherished memory. I love you forever.

Ronald Cornick

I always looked up to my sister, Lorraine, since my earliest memory of her. When I was very young she played acrobatics with me. I remember laughing and giggling as she layed on her back, supporting me by the tummy with her bare feet, and holding her hands outstretched to balance me. She held out her arms, bounced her knees, and zoomed me up, down, and around like an airplane. I was two and she was 10. When I was five it was he job to walk me to kindergarten. In the playground, I got smacked right in the face and was knocked down with what seemed to me to be the world's biggest snowball. I was red-faced and cried and cried. It was Lorrie, who got me stood up, calmed me down, and made me brave.

Larry Florence

RIP my dear cousin Lorraine. I have fond memories of you mostly from my childhood. At the many family barbecues, you were in charge of the little ones including me. I have and will always remember your sweet smile, warm demeanor, and generous soul. You were taken from us way too soon, but you will be eternally present in our hearts.

Marti Greenberg

I have such great memories/stories about Lorrie. She was a good friend. She knew how to be a good friend. She was creative, hard working, kind, inquisitive, fun, helpful, good hearted, adventurous and humble. Our friendship started when I was dating my husband, Gary. It all began in downtown Chicago where we both worked. We would grab a to go lunch and meet out at a bench for lunch and gab away. From there it was annual New Year's Eve get togethers, annual Oscar parties, our Open House Chicago treks, my "girl's only" Fun Club adventures, KP duty at our family and friends celebrations in the house which were frequent, the early morning, 8am, catch up phone calls: how are you doing? what's new? and on and on. She definitely brought light into people's lives. She was a beacon of light in my life. RIP my dear friend. Love.

Kay Stepkin

Dear Lorrie, You did so much for vegetarianism – and now veganism - in Chicago. Over 25 years ago, you brought our small catered Turkey-Free Thanksgiving dinner to the Hyatt on Michigan Avenue. The following year, I found Dr. David Edelberg as our speaker for the event. After that, I was in charge for the next 6 years and – with your ongoing advice and help – we brought the attendee number up to 700! As I continue to work to spread veganism, I often think of you and your generous encouragement. Rest in peace dear Lorrie.

Gary Greenberg

Words can't express how much you've meant to Marti and me. You've been such a positive energy, always inquiring how we are fairing, so much fun at parties and on our many excursions together, and inquisitive about everything. You've always been willing to lend a helping hand, and I'm particularly thankful for your help on Team Gary, when I was looking for a live kidney donor for a transplant as well as your constant calls, when I finally had the surgery. You've been such a calming force in your demeanor, yet so expressive when you were enjoying something .
You're a great hugger, and we can always feel the love inside you being expressed.
Lorrie, you've been an integral part of our lives that we have loved so much. You've been one of the few cousins that I've been close to, and that's been very meaningful to me. You've been such strong and determined woman, having had a life so full for yourself as well as one that filled other people with the personal gifts you shared with them.
We love you so much and pray for you. You will be sorely missed, but forever in our hearts.

Judy Grossman

I am so very sorry to hear the sad news about Lorrie. Our paths crossed many years ago through the Chicago Vegetarian Society. Lorrie was always such a bright light with her calm demeanor. In June 1992, I was planning a birthday party for a mutual friend. The morning of the party I received a phone call that my dad had fallen down some stairs and had been taken to the hospital. Of course, my plans quickly changed and I had to cancel the party. But Lorrie came to the rescue offering to have the party at her home. She was always a problem solver. Kind and always willing to go the extra mile. I will remember her fondly. My heart goes out to her family and friends. The world has lost a very good soul.

Ingrid Brown

I met Lorrie at a film group. She asked what I did and I told her I was a travel agent. We talked and a little while later went to a museum together to really get to know each other. Lorrie signed up for our trip down the St. Lawrence Seaway, but unfortunately, it was canceled because of COVID. That did not stop Lorrie from wanting to travel. She signed up for two more trips - our ladies fall spa trip to Ixtapan Mexico and a long weekend to Quebec. I can't believe she won't be on these trips. I just spoke to Lorrie a few weeks ago so this is a shock. She was a lovely lady who wanted to travel the world. I will miss sharing these and future
trips with her.
