    JOHNSON, Lori – Passed away at the Lady Dunn Health Centre after a courageous and long fought battle with cancer on Friday July 7, 2017.  Beloved wife of Doug Johnson for nearly 20 years.  Loving mother and friend of Kathleen Johnson.  Lori will be lovingly remembered by Doug’s children Norman Johnson (Cindy), Tom Johnson (Bonnie) and their children Gloria, Ruth and Marlene.  Dear daughter of Nancy and Robert Cooper.  Loving sister of Cheryl Reid (late Ron), Shelley VanHeyningen (Anthony), Chris Cooper (Ida) and Stacey Knock (Johnathon).  Lori will be remembered by her nephews, family and extended family.  Lori battled valiantly for two and half years with a very rare type of cancer, cancer of the duodenum.  Her wish would be to educate everyone on this rare disease.  A Celebration of Lori’s life will be held at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre (Chris Simon Drive) on Tuesday July 11, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Ron Henson officiating.  If so desired, memorial donations may be made to the Project Life Savers, c/o  Alzheimers Society of Wawa, an organization that Lori was beginning to fund-raise for.   (Arrangements entrusted to the P.M.

    Lori was a true recreation professional that loved her community and the Lake Superior region. She was a strong supporter of the ORFA.  Personally, I will miss her contribution to the norh and the industry as a whole...RIP Lori.
