"I lost my sight so I could see" this is what Lori always said.
Her health struggles ended Dec 12, 2022, from complications with covid pneumonia at OSU hospital.
She was welcomed into her Heavenly home by Jesus. Whom she loved and lived her life for on this earth.
Lori was born Nov 4, 1962, in Columbus, Ohio to Linda C & Dr. Rodolfo Vocal. She went to Mansfield Christian in Mansfield, Ohio.
Lori had many health issues to diabetes. She lost most of her sight and was in the last stages of kidney failure. Her older sister, Sandy wanted to be her living kidney donor but found out she was also diabetic and was no longer a candidate to be a donor.
An ANGEL and good friend of the family Liz Comstock Schister secretly went to be tested at OSU. When she found out she was a match she called my sister and said you are getting a new kidney July 29, 2015. Lori's life changed for the better and she was able to enjoy life.
We will NEVER be able to THANK Liz enough for giving her daughter Ashley more time with her mom & us more years with Lori. We love you, Liz.
Lori loved listening to KLOVE, watching videos on the end times and Jesus second coming & was a HUGE BUCKEYE FAN. She enjoyed spending time with her daughter Ashley Smith who was also her caregiver, along with Michael Skipper her daughters fiancé.
Lori will always be remembered for her faith in Jesus Christ, being an encourager and comforter.
If Lori could say one thing it would be to know where you’re going when you die. That you need to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and ask him to forgive you for your sins. This is the only way to have eternal life. John 3:16.
