She was preceded in death by her sister Lucille Jacobchick and is survived by her brother Alan Vosz (Barbara) and numerous cousins and nephews most of whom still live in Milwaukee.

Growing up in Milwaukee, Lorry attended school and later was employed by Selig Executive Leasing as an account executive. She attended Resurrection Lutheran Church where she was the organist. It was at Resurrection that she met her lifelong friends Clarence and Gertie Hansen who, after her divorce and along with her cousin David Fayram of Goleta, convinced her to move to Santa Barbara. Lorry packed up a U-Haul and drove to California in 1981. She got a job at SB Research Center and began attending Christ Lutheran Church in Goleta where she again put her talents as organist and choir director to use. Lorry also got to indulge her passion for golf with the SBRC Couples League and her friends at Christ Lutheran. She retired from SBRC in 1992.

After retirement Lorry became the piano player and director of the Merry Widows Kitchen Band and the Friendship Manor Chorus. She enjoyed her many friends at Christ Lutheran Church, Friendship Manor, and Buena Vista Care Center.

A celebration of Lorry’s life will be held on August 24th at 10:30 am at Christ Lutheran Church, 6595 Covington Way, Goleta CA. 93117. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the Scholarship Fund at Christ Lutheran Church.
