    I met Lori in 2000, the year I started working with her at Essentia. She quickly grew to be a good and faithful friend. We had alot of fun together, even at work. She was always a soft spoken, kindhearted soul with a winning smile. Much to my shame, I had lost touch with Lori, and I feel sad I won’t get the chance to see her again. I do however, look forward to seeing her again, in Heaven, and there, we will always be smiling and have a good time with Jesus, family and other friends. My sympathies and prayers are with her family. I know she will be greatly missed.

  4. Becky Larson says:

    Klier Family,
    I am so sorry to hear the sad news of Lori. She was my big sister when I was growing up. I have so many wonderful memories of things we did together. Movies, bowling, playing cards with her and Dubby, spending weekends at the lake with all of you. May God wrap you all in peace and love throughout this difficult time. Thoughts and Prayers.

  8. Kari Marchand says:

    I had the great pleasure to work with Lori at essentia. She was such a wonderful and caring person. Prayers to her family.

  9. Jenna Olson says:

    Lori was my aunt. She was always there for me no matter what. She allowed me to stay at her house while attending college, we watched shows and gabbed about life, I always talked her ear off about my hopes and dreams. She was my comfort when I needed it, a non-judgmental advice giver and a very close friend. She along with my other aunts and mom are the best support system a young woman could ask for. We have many memories from holidays and summers at the lakes. She was always there for me and I could truly say she was one of my best friends. I don’t know life without Lori and it saddens me moving forward. Lori will be missed everyday. 💕

    My sympathies and prayers go out to you and your family. She will be greatly missed.

  15. Terrie Carlson says:

    My sincere condolences to your family. I have known Lori as long as she has worked at Essentia. We both started around the same time, while in different departments, would always run into each other when we were in the same building at South University. A dedicated employee who always did her best and worked hard.
    Always showed so much compassion for the patients she came into contact with.

  16. Marie Simons says:

    I worked with Lori several years back, and my daughter has worked with her for many years. Lori was such a sweetheart. She was always helpful. Even though I have not talked to her for a long time, I will miss her kindness and her infectious smile. My prayers are with her family.

  17. Donna Hentges says:

    I knew Lori when we worked together at the South University clinic (but lost touch when I retired). Lori was always pleasant, fun, responsible and dedicated. Sincere sympathy to her family, I know she will be missed.

  18. Jo Brenneise says:

    My sincere sympathies to Lori’s family. I worked with her for many years and she was a kind soul. Thoughts and prayers to Family and Friends.

  19. Haley says:

    Lori was my aunt and one of my best friends.She was kind, patient and always here for me when I needed her comfort. I have so many wonderful memories I’ll hold close in my heart always. Lori loved Lake Eunice, paddle boat and pontoon rides, lifetime movies, nature walks, her cats max and ruby. She made the best fudge brownies. We enjoyed going to the casino together. Lori and my grandma always loved taking Jenna and I to the Hi-Ho for games and chicken strips. Every New Years Eve when we were kids Lori would have us over for a party, she made homemade confetti that we got to throw all over her house in celebration. Thank you for these memories. I love you always.

    Kathy, Cheryl, Julie. Lori was such a dear person and your family and others who knew her will miss her greatly, but take heart…you will see her again!

  23. Tanya Livdahl says:

    My deepest sympathy to Lori’s family. You could always count on a smile from her no matter how busy she was. She was truly dedicated to Essentia Health and her position. Lori would come to me in billing on occasion to trouble shoot correspondence that was received in the medical records department. She was definitely a team player and I will miss her dearly.

  25. Erin Grasser says:

    It is so difficult to even know what to write, when this is still so absolutely shocking. You should be here, Lori. Just like Dubby was like a grandma to me, you were my aunt. You were always so present in all of our lives from holidays, birthday celebrations, and summers at the lake. You were a wonderful daughter and sister. And, you were not only our aunt, but our friend. You are missed so much already. Please continue to be present in our lives. We will be watching and listening. We love you.

  26. Debbie Brakke says:

    Kathy, Cheryl and Julie,
    Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for your family, regarding the loss of your loving sister Lori. She has joined your mom, dad and niece for a joyous celebration, as they catch up on all the events that have taken place, since they were last together. You now have 4 guardian angels watching over you, as you continue your lives together. May God bless you with fabulous memories, that make you all smile with joy.

  27. Karen Brown says:

    To the Klier family,

    I’m so very sorry for the loss of your beloved sister, Lori. I didn’t know Lori, just knew her through her sister Kathy (who I work with). There really are no words that will make any of this better for you. I do know the loss of a loved one but not of a sister. May you all find peace & comfort amongst family & friends. RIP Lori.

  28. Teri (Tableman) Schepp says:

    My deepest sympathies to Kathy and the entire family on the loss of Lori. I worked with Lori back in the Dakota Days and occasionally got to visit with her when I saw her in Barnesville and at Essentia amongst other places. Lori was a one of a kind person……always smiling, a hard worker, compassionate, sincere and was one of the nicest, sweetest people you could ever come in contact with. She gave her all to her career, friends and family. She would often times talk of her nieces and nephews she was so proud of each and every one of them. My heart breaks for the sudden loss of Lori, and may God help to heal your hearts in the days, months and years to come. Heaven has certainly gained an angel !! Rest in peace my friend……

  31. Janie Baumer says:

    Kathy, Cheryl and Julie, I am so sorry for your loss. Lori was a great childhood friend of mine. I remember playing at your house on 8th street, going to movies, sleepovers, Holy Spirit school. We grew apart in our teenage years but I would see her at Essentia and we would have a quick Hi how’s it going. She looked exactly the same as I remembered her.

    My deepest sympathies to the family of Lori. I had the pleasure of interacting with Lori at various times at work. Lori was nothing short of kind, gracious and patient.

    To Lori’s family, I am sure you know what an amazing person she was. I worked for years with Lori at Essentia. She was always smiling. I have been retired for a few years but I saw her last fall and she beamed when she saw me. My heart just sank when I saw she had passed. You have your memories and the knowledge that she was liked and respected by everyone who knew her. Be proud.
