It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Lori at the age of 45 years. Lori set very high standards for herself. She spent over a decade working as a nurse at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. She enjoyed golf, card games, drumming and the great outdoors. In recent years, as a result of her battle with depression, she missed her friends, the laughter, joy and peace of mind that life has to offer. Lori’s thoughtful, caring, loving nature and infectious laugh will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

I came in a blossom on a cherry tree

Fresh and new in the winds I blew free

I remember not that I have flowered before

And pray again I will bloom once more.

Lori is survived by her father Mac Gibbs, mother Sharon (Brian) Karst and brothers Andy (Sylvia) and Chris (Lillian), as well as by her nephews and nieces Conner, Zachary, Sarah, Melissa and Jenna.
