Loriann will be fondly remembered by her mother Effie Lysons (Bob); father Don Blanthorne (Eleanor); brother Ross Blanthorne; sister Paula Cooper; nephews Jacob and Joshua Blanthorne and her cat Lizzie.
Loriann aspired to work on an airline or cruise ship so she could meet new people and see many places. She had many plans to see the world and did. She lived in California for several years, visited Mexico and London, England and travelled across Canada.
She enjoyed mystery novels, music of all types, she loved cats, long walks, fresh air and flowers.
