Lori Elizabeth Corbett Knox was born Feb. 25, 1965, at Abilene Memorial Hospital, the 10th child of Harold and Agatha Reinert Corbett. She died Sept. 9, 2018 at her home in Chapman, KS of heart disease.
She was a life-long resident of Chapman. She graduated from Chapman High School with the Class of 1983 and attended Brown-Mackie Business College, Salina.

Lori was an honest, kind, considerate person who lived simply, never said a bad word about anyone nor complained, always wished others well, and complimented them on their accomplishments.

She often could be seen sitting on the floor playing with her grandchildren, her face showing the pride in them and love she had for them.
