Lorri Lynn Valencic

May 4, 1972 — May 25, 2020

Lorri Lynn Valencic, 48, of Gibsonburg, passed away on May 25, 2020. She was born on May 4, 1972 in Toledo, Ohio to Ronald and Bonnie (Blakeley) Koester. She was a graduate of Clay High School. Lorri wore many hats working as a full-time mother to her four children. She was a teacher when she homeschooled her kids and she was their doctor when they got hurt. She will be remembered as an all-around great mother. Lorri not only exhibited great love for her family, but strength as well when she won her battle with breast cancer. She doted on her many dogs over the years, but her favorite was her St. Bernard, Apollo.
