We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Rearick-Carpenter
Lori (Anderson) Farion, 68, of Williamsport, PA, passed away after a brief illness on Friday, June 11, 2021, at The Gatehouse hospice facility in Williamsport. She was born in Mount Clemens, MI, on March 10, 1953, a daughter of Norman and Theda (Syrja) Anderson. She worked as a medical transcriptionist for over forty years at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, CA, retiring in 2016. Lori enjoyed knitting, her cats, dancing, music, reading, and astrology. Her heart was in L.A., as she loved California, but she also enjoyed her new life in Williamsport, which began in June 2020.
Lori’s survivors include her only child, daughter Alexis; three sisters—Marlane Arnold of Utica, MI, Cassandra “Cassie” Blair of Williamsport, PA, Margot Anderson of Wellston, MI; four brothers—Michael (Wilma) Anderson of Irons, MI, Scott Anderson of Chatsworth, CA, Norman (Terry) Anderson of Ann Arbor, MI, Christopher Anderson of Utica, MI; her beloved cat, Bunny, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, ex-husband John Farion, brother Gregory Anderson, and brother-in-law Frederick Arnold.
There will be no funeral or memorial service. If you knew Lori, you knew she gave a helping hand, a couch to sleep on, a shoulder to cry on, and held space with no judgement to anyone in need. The family asks that if you are able to do any of these things, you would be giving a way for Lori to live on. Help someone out if you are in a position to do so. If you are feeling down, her remedy for self-care was a good steak and a nice glass of red wine. Raise your glass (with your beverage of choice) to Lori. She will be missed.
She will always carry on
Something is lost
But something is found
They will keep on speaking her name
Some things change
Some stay the same
[chorus from “Hymn to Her”]
