Lori Ann Snodgrass was born on November 21, 1959 in Iowa, to Merlin Elwood and Alice Patricia (Thompsen) Snodgrass. As a military child she moved around some and had lived in several places including England, Texas, Kansas and Iowa. She was a 1977 graduate of Maquoketa High School and later received her MBA from the University of Iowa. She was a U.S. Army veteran where she worked as recruiter until receiving an honorable discharge. Upon returning to civilian life, she worked at the Rock Island Arsenal as contract specialist for over 29 years earning a GS 14 rank and retiring in 2014. She excelled at her work and had traveled extensively with positions held at the Pentagon. In retirement, she had worked as a bartender to keep herself busy.
Lori was an animal lover and a member of the American Kennel Club, as well as a Master Gardener. She was an avid baker and was known for making breads, candies and sweets. She also enjoyed shopping, quilting, crocheting, cross stitch, and was always doing the latest arts and crafts.
Although goofy at times and strongly opinionated, Lori had a heart of gold and helped raise her niece and nephew. She also had multiple dogs through the years who had a special place in her heart.
Those left to honor her memory include her siblings, Patrick Snodgrass of Oxford Junction, IA, Tommy Snodgrass of Davenport, IA, and Mary Rauch of Baldwin, IA; a niece, Sierra (Josh) Daniels of Norwalk, IA; and a nephew, Garrett Rauch of Baldwin, IA. She was preceded in death by her parents.
In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, a Lori Ann Snodgrass memorial fund has been established.
