Murphys, CA…Lori Duse Weathers, age 55, passed away peacefully with family at her side on Sunday, September 6, 2020 at her family’s home in Salt Lake City, UT. Lori was born September 9, 1964 in Castro Valley, CA to Lawrence and Vivian (Tanghe) Byrnes. A 1982 graduate of Bret Harte HS, she began work with AAA while attending Columbia JC. She soon married on September 24, 1983 in Columbia, CA and began life’s most important job, raising her family in Arnold, CA. As part of a tight knit extended family, Lori’s pride and joy became her own family, where motherhood proved to be her life’s passion. Along with her two sons Andrew and Tucker, her grandson Teddy and soon-to-be first granddaughter Nora (expecting late September, 2020) were Lori’s first love.
With the love of family at her core, Lori’s friendships from all circles helped define her; everyone loved her. She maintained close ties throughout her life with loyalty, sincerity, humility, appreciativeness, thankfulness of God’s beauty and grace and selfless generosity. She loved all activities the outdoors could provide, family gatherings, being a big sister, fashion, and providing a loving, stable home.
Lori was heavily involved in many professional pursuits, performing them at the highest levels. These included fitness instructor and working as a teacher/trainer/practitioner in massage therapy and esthetics for 20 years in Murphys, CA and Salt Lake City, UT.
A beautiful woman inside and out, Lori will be missed by all, especially her family who reciprocated her love dearly. She is survived by sons Andrew (Melody) Weathers and Tucker (Colleen) Weathers, grandson Theodore Jonathan Weathers, parents Lawrence and Vivian Byrnes, sister Lisa (Robert Stephenson) Byrnes, brother Jonathan (Lily) Byrnes, uncle Dennis and aunt Rosalee Byrnes, cousins Michelle (Ron) Bryant and Matthew (Dawn) Byrnes and their children Lilia and Erin, aunt Bobbe Byrnes, cousins Mike (Michelle) Byrnes and Mark (Suzanne) Byrnes and their families.
Family, friends, and others whose lives Lori has touched are welcome to attend both of two separate services: A graveside service (time and date TBD and communicated soon) at Mount Olivet Cemetery in early to mid-October, 2020, in Salt Lake City, UT, and a celebration of life memorial service at Lori’s favorite birthday spot – Lake Alpine, CA in mid-late June 2021.
