Lauren Elizabeth Gladys

December 23, 1960 — March 15, 2023

Fairview Park

On Wednesday March 15, 2023 Lauren Elizabeth Gladys (LaValle) passed away
suddenly and peacefully in her home at the age of 62. Lori lived her life as everyone
should, full of love, laughter, never-ending kindness and no regrets. Lori held her
family most dear, where sharing her sense of humor and her “Lori” jokes became a
blessing. She lived for others and made everyone feel like they were the center of
her universe. Lori became the face of “Gene’s Place to Dine” greeting everyone with
her huge heart and one of her silly jokes. If you were having a bad day when you
arrived . . . Lori saw to it you weren’t when you left. It’s a wonderful thing when your
best friend is actually born into your family and because of my sister Lori, we have all
had a blessed life. Lori is survived by her parents Gene and Peggy, husband James,
sons Justin, Nick (Amanda), their father Phil, stepson Alec, brothers Gene (Carol)
Vince (Jamie) sister Jennie (Chris), grandchildren Lily, Victor and step-granddaughter
Riley. She will be greatly missed by her family and abundance of friends.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 10:00 am, Tuesday March 21st 2023
St. Richard Parish, 26855 Lorain Road North Olmsted.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to West Park Police and Fire Memorial or
