Lori Ann (Gardner) Harford, 59, of Willet, NY, was called home on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Lori left a huge mark during her life by helping others, going to garage sales, clearance racks and crocheting. She loved her ARC job where she cared for people and she loved her tattoos of sons and grandchildren and 420.
She is survived by her two loving daughters, Melissa Gardner and Jessica Gardner; her husband of 23 years, Gale Brown, who we are so thankful to him for caring for her through her battles; sisters, Sherri (Fred) Williams, Lena (Gary) Thomas, Janet (Jack) Toolan, and Donna (John) Leonardo; and brothers, Ronald Gardner, Donald (Bobijo) Gardner, David (Kelly) Gardner, and Richard Gardner. She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Johnathan, Emma Leea, KaiLure, Anthony, Brandon, Mercedez, Maxwell, Aubrie, and Zaddiez; several nieces and nephews.
Lori was predeceased by her mother, Betty Schermerhorn and father, Richard Gardner; and sons, George M. Davis, Jr., and Travis Brown.
At Lori’s request, there will be no formal funeral services. A celebration of life will be held at Yaman Park, Cortland, NY, on Saturday, July 16, 2022, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
