Lori Nicole Dix Gunn, aged 52, died on July 3, 2022, following a short, but aggressive battle of liver cancer.
Born in Colorado Springs, she was the daughter of Betty Harris and Scott Dix, who are residing in Clearwater, Florida and here in Fruita, Colorado.
Lori graduated from Rampart High School in 1988 and went on to finish her certificate in pharmaceuticals years later.
While Lori has been employed as a manager at the local Smoker Friendly for the past few years, her most meaningful positions were based in animal services and in the pharmaceutical field. She played an important role in animal control and worked as a veterinary tech for over 15 years.
She enjoyed the outdoors, (such as hiking, camping, fishing, and jeeping), photography, concerts, and of course her undivided love of all animals. Lori became a loved member of the community when she combined these values and assisted in the fostering and adoption of dozens of animals from her pet photography.
Her personality was outgoing, friendly, and she was a jokester who had a wonderful laugh and smile. She always brought light to a room and was helpful to anyone who may have needed it.
She was dedicated to her four-legged family, was extremely hard working, and always valued the natural beauty around her.
Lori was preceded in death by her grandmother, Violet Teeter and her late husband, Charlie Gunn.
She is now survived by her husband Randle, both of her parents, her sister Terri, niece Brook, and other family members who loved her so.
While Lori may not be here with us today, the memories that we hold of her will forever be in our hearts.
