Lori had much compassion for her younger siblings and her parents as a young girl. Whenever someone would fight or get into an argument Lori would always be there to help calm things down.

She always loved painting with her mother, especially when the family lived in Battle Mountain and the whole house on every wall had pictures made by Lori and her mother.
