Lori Kay Bosma, age 62, of Tipp City, passed away on Sunday, November 13, 2022, at home surrounded by her children. She was born on March 9, 1960, in Cincinnati to Marilynn (Hoover) Keeler and the late Frank Andriacco.
Lori is survived by three children: Kim (Blake) Arbogast of Troy, Jenna Korsog of Troy and Tracy Bosma of Tipp City; three brothers: Brian Andriacco of Tipp City, Jeff Andriacco of Springboro and Danato Andriacco of Waynesville; and six grandchildren: Bella and Brody Arbogast, Cohen, Nelly and Marlo Korsog and Lillian Bosma.
Lori was a member of Holy Angels Catholic Church. She was employed as a bookkeeper and office manager.
Determined. Passionate. Dedicated. Three of the best adjectives to describe Lori. Her family saw these traits in her through all phases and facets of her life. Lori would not want to be remembered by school, work related or other achievements. She would want to be remembered by her relationships; she was fiercely loyal. Her children and grandchildren were her crowning achievement and her greatest joy.
Lori loved to read, play games, and watch anything sci-fi, or survival related, and loved to prepare and eat great food. She loved to garden and work in her yard. She especially loved to work in her garden with her grandkids, the youngest of which she was so proud to have delivered. She was always up to give you her opinion or advice, even if you didn’t want it! She truly was an incredible confidant and gave great advice and were arms to run to if you needed a place of comfort. She didn’t miss a day with her kids where there was not at least one text or phone call.
When she was diagnosed with cancer mid-pandemic in 2020, she never had the attitude where she was determined to beat the cancer, instead, her mindset was ‘I am going to do whatever it takes to be here with my family for as long as I can get.’ During her second chemo regimen she was able to make a bucket list trip to cruise Alaska with the kids. She was a fighter to the very end and would have kept going had her body allowed. In her last weeks, after the chemotherapy had been stopped, she was still able to make it to Grandparent’s Day at the kids’ school, one trip out of the house to sit outside and visit with the grandkids, and one last car ride to vote in the mid-term election where they brought her ballot to the car.
If you were ever loved by Lori please know, she held you in her heart until the very end. She was constant and consistent for those she held in her heart, and if you were lucky, you were one of those people. For now, she is home with Jesus whom she loved with all her heart and her dad who she missed terribly.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, no sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. – Revelation 21:4
