Obituary of Lori Christine Richardson
The death of Lori Christine (MacKenzie) Richardson of Saint John, cherished wife of John Richardson, occurred on August 21, 2019. Born on June 19, 1958 in Saint John, she was the daughter of the late Samuel and Angela (Lockhart) MacKenzie.
Lori had a vibrant and charismatic nature that was apparent to those who knew her. Her happiest times were when she was spending time with friends and family, boating on the St. John River and travelling to Florida for vacation.
After various employments, Lori returned to school to complete her education in 1986 and then went on to graduate from the Saint John School of Nursing in 1990. At the time of her retirement, Lori had become a Charge Nurse on the surgical floor (3C North) at the Saint John Regional Hospital.
Lori will be lovingly remembered by her children, Jason Lyttle (Cynthia) and Allyson Lyttle-Belyea; step-children: Mark Richardson (Aimee), Ryan Richardson (Jayden), and Robyn Richardson (Jamie); brother, Terry MacKenzie (Susan); sisters-in-law: Pauline Hughes, Helene Bursey, Lena Spellman, Minnie Redfern, and Laura Clements; grandchildren: Sam, Emma, Ethan, Brianna, and Kendra; step-grandchildren, Cole and Callan; as well as several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Bobby’s Hospice for the wonderful care and compassion shown in Lori’s final weeks.
Arrangements are under the care of Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John (634-7424). The family will be holding a Celebration of Life in Lori’s honour on Sunday, August 25th, 2019 from 2 pm to 5 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #69, 714 Wilson Street, Saint John, NB, E2M 3V2.
