54318035a2d0f.imageOn Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014, a light seemed to be forever extinguished in our family. Lori Joy Tyler (Zabielski) passed peacefully to be with our Lord after her courageous battle with cancer.

Lori was a lifelong resident of Lower Bucks County and a 1993 graduate of Pennsbury High School.

Lori was caring and compassionate and one of the most kind-hearted people you will ever come across. As an active member of the church community, Lori found solace in the words and teachings of God. Her devout faith and remarkable strength were commendable. It was her love for God and her beautiful family that helped her face each day with grace, admiration and resolution during her arduous battle.

Lori was very artistic. She loved to paint and play the piano. She enjoyed the outdoors. She loved camping and traveled across Europe with her husband, Dave. But her most proud moments in life were caring for her family.

An inspirational mother and wife, Lori’s greatest moments were those she spent with her family, especially her children whom she loved dearly. Lori lived a full life in her short years. Yes, for a brief moment the light seemed to have gone out, but it was just a flicker. Lori’s light will shine on forever within our hearts and minds. Her light will shine on through the love and beliefs that she instilled in her children. It will shine on through all of us that were blessed to have her in our lives.

Lori is survived by her loving husband, Dave and her three beloved children, David, Holland and Johanna.
