Lori was at her happiest at the beach. She loved being on the sand and near the water. One of her favorite experiences was swimming with dolphins with her husband, Bobby, at her side. They loved to travel everywhere together to places like Mexico, Oceanside, New England, and Colorado. She and Bobby met at sixteen in High School and quickly fell in love. They were later married and raised three amazing boys. Lori was known to have always put her kids first, and loved all of her grandchildren.

She NEVER knew a stranger and loved talking with anyone she came in contact with. She cared deeply for everyone around her. Lori was a special person with a magnetic personality. She had a beautiful smile and her laugh was contagious. She appreciated the simple things in life. She worked for many years at the Dixie Center, and several more working at the correctional facility in St. George, UT, as the Program Coordinator. She brought in many of the education, religious, and rehabilitation programs, along with many recreational opportunities for the inmates.

"Lori Pendle was an angel on earth. She is my bride, she is my girlfriend, she is my best friend, she is my lover, she is my Baby Girl, she is my brat, she is my wild and crazy woman, she is my rock, she is my everything. She is gorgeous. She had a lot of medical problems, but she was always positive, and always gave everyone her beautiful smile, and it was my privilege to care for her. I would still love and care for her for the next thirty+ years if I had the chance. Everyone that was fortunate to meet her, fell in love with her."
