Lori A. Winzenried, 59, passed away Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021. She was born May 8, 1962, in Rahway, N.J., to the late Jessie Buchen Parks. She grew up in Irvington, N.J., and lived in South Plainfield, N.J., for many years before moving to her dream home in Georgetown.
Lori was a customer service manager for several companies. She enjoyed many crafts including diamond painting, making stained glass and mosaic decor, and decorative sign painting. She also was a “Jeep Girl” and loved driving her Wrangler. Lori was a volunteer at the Irvington New Jersey First Aid Squad and volunteered with animal rescue work in New Jersey. After moving to Delaware, she helped various charities in the area through volunteer work at the summer concert series and local car shows.
In addition to her mother, she was preceded by her stepfather, David Nagy; and a brother, Scott Parks.
Lori is survived by her husband, Dennis G. Winzenried; four fur children, Storm, Kahlua, Thor, and Bolt; brother, Gilroy Parks; brother and sister-in-law, Tom and Josi Winzenried; several nieces and nephews; and some very close friends who were family to her.
Lori was a caring, giving and loving person with a heart of gold, and a strength and courage rarely seen. She believed good news was to be shared, but troubles were kept private. Those who knew of, and were a part of, her fight against cancer were inspired by her – she was a true warrior.
No formal services will be held.
Memorial contributions may be sent to the Delaware Humane Association, 18675 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971 or to a local animal rescue or shelter of your choice.
