Plans have been set for a Springfield, IL memorial, to be held on March 5th at West Side Christian Church (2850 Cider Mill Lane, Springfield, IL 62702).
Similar to the Dayton, OH memorial, visitation will be held from 2-4 PM and the memorial service held from 4-6 PM. There was a time of sharing short memories and stories of Lori during the memorial service. It was a sweet time where all were blessed to hear how Lori impacted lives. If you have a similar story, it would be great if you could bring it ready to share.
For those traveling, the below hotels do offer bereavement rates. When calling to book, mention you will be traveling for a funeral and request the bereavement rate. There are many hotels on the east side of Springfield, however the church is located on the northwest side of Springfield. The listed hotels are located on the west side:

A family member (Jonny Walls) created a video of Lori that was shown at the Dayton memorial service. It’s uploaded to YouTube and can be found here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpN3I6Y3OxA).
