“I Love You Like the Sun”

– Ryan Indzeoski

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of LORI EVELYN INDZEOSKI of Coalhurst, Alberta with her family by her side on October 14, 2021 at the age of 41 years.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Ryan; daughters: Addesyn, Jessie and Charley; her pup Bellz, and grandcat Rosé; mother, Doreen Russnaik, nee Olsen and mother-in-law, Dianne Indzeoski; siblings: Tracy (Lance) Smith; Clint (Kayla) Russnaik; brother/sisters-in-law: Kris, Karla & Annie Indzeoski as well as her cherished nieces and nephews, Ty & Brady Indzeoski; Ailish & Kian Nolan.

She will be dearly missed by her countless aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and co-workers.

She was predeceased by her father Clint Russnaik and her father-in-law, Ken Indzeoski; grandparents Norman & Evelyn Russnaik and Kathleen Olsen.

Lori was born September 25, 1980 in Toronto, Ontario. Lori often reminisced about happy childhood memories, many from having had the opportunity to experience various cultures after moving from Eastern Canada to Ecuador to Lethbridge, Alberta, before calling Coalhurst, Alberta home in 2004.

Lori met the love of her life, Ryan in 1998 and it wasn’t long before they planted roots and began their adventure together. She discovered her passion in life when she became a beautiful Mom and Lori’s natural ability to nurture was obvious. Ryan and the girls were draped in love every moment she was near. Lori had a cheerful, optimistic outlook and always allowed everyone the benefit of the doubt. She had a positivity that won’t be matched and believed wholeheartedly in humanity. She could turn a bad mood around with nothing more than a conversation and a hug if you were willing. Lori was so very compassionate and you could count on her to listen and offer a shoulder to cry on without fail. Lori valued family above all and loved to gather as a unit. Having everyone together brought her so much joy and she was sure to let you know her displeasure if you failed to bring the kids along for the visit. Lori was an amazing friend and co-worker to so many and she truly felt grateful for what she considered an extension of her family. She made certain that we all knew how much she loved us.

Lori loved being with Ryan and the girls and supporting whatever activity they were involved with. She was their biggest cheerleader and never missed an opportunity to be involved. She was their Rock, their best friend and could make their day better with just a smile and her amazing laugh.

We’ve never known anyone to look better in a ball hat and it will always be a mystery where she found space to store her collection of head coverings. She lit up a room with her beautiful red lipstick and her enthusiasm for the holidays & festive attire never ceased to make us all smile.

Lori has passed the baton onto us as we navigate the relay race of cancer. Lori’s journey with cancer has touched every corner of our souls and we thank her for accepting the burden of the first leg with grace and an inner beauty that will provide us strength and give us the courage to keep running…. Together with love, kindness, and support for each other we will carry her legacy with us forever and become a mighty team.

A private service was held for family in Lethbridge, Alberta.
