Lorelyn (Lori) Zimmerman Adams

Lori was cremated and there was a small memorial with friends and family at her home.

Lorelyn (Lori) Zimmerman Adams of Mt. Victory, Kentucky passed away on July 22, 2021 after a short bout with cancer.

Lori was born in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, the daughter of Luman and Catherine Zimmerman on November 7, 1947. She spent a large portion of her life living in Eaton Rapids, graduating from Eaton Rapids High School. After she graduated she spent some time traveling, including spending time with her sister, Elaine, and her family in Greece, and then went to Japan for a short time before going back to Eaton Rapids.

Lori had at least one horse throughout most of her life. She loved horses and dogs. Red and Lori raised, trained and showed Arabian horses for over thirty-five years from Redlor Stables on Kemler Road. When they decided it was time to retire, they moved to Mt. Victory, Kentucky. Red started and became pastor of a church in Mt. Victory and Lori worked with the youth of the church and eventually also became a pastor and worked with Red in the church.

Lori was friends with pretty much everyone she met. Anyone that knew her loved being around her and enjoyed the spirit she brought to any gathering. She loved to travel. She loved the beach best, but she had fun and made friends no matter where she went. There were certain people in Kentucky that were more like family that she wanted mentioned: Regina & Greg Fultz; Rebecca Lawson; Virgenia Warford; Sherry Whitaker; Don & Cathy Helton; and Fuzzy & Betty Jones.

There are no words to say how much Lori will be missed – by family and friends. She made an impact on anyone who knew her, no matter how short or long the acquaintance was.

Lori is survived by her husband of 50 years, Red (Clarence) Adams: her stepson Ronald (Janice) ; her grandchildren Melissa and Nicole Adams; great granddaughters Remi & Haley Adams. Her brother-in-law Stanley Krawczyk: her nieces Diane (Craig) Galloway and Kathleen Hendrickson; her great-niece Deanna (John) Cornell; great-nephew Robert (Amanda) Young; great great nephews Ethan & Conrad Young; and great great niece Aoife Young. She also leaves behind her beloved Casey, a dog she rescued many years ago.

Lori is preceded in death by her parents Luman & Catherine Zimmerman, her sister Elaine Krawczyk and her nephew Stanley L. Krawczyk. Also many horses and dogs that were her “children”.

Lori was cremated and there was a small memorial with friends and family at her home. She didn’t want a funeral or flowers. Instead she wanted donations in her name to the Pulaski, Kentucky Animal Shelter.
