Lori Ann (Whitlock) Hiers

November 3, 1959 — January 28, 2024


Lori Ann Hiers, a beacon of light and laughter, passed away peacefully on January 28, 2024, in Ozark, Alabama, at the age of 64. Born on November 3, 1959, in Warsaw, New York, Lori's exuberant spirit and unwavering optimism touched the lives of those around her.

Lori's journey through life was marked by her innate ability to nurture and connect with people. She was a cherished wife to Randy Hiers, a beloved daughter to her mother, Bonnie Hess, and her late father, Richard Lee Hess. Linda Hess, her devoted step-mother, also played a significant role in her life. Lori's warmth and generosity extended to her special friends, Tim and Kate Bishop, Judy and Tony Sevec, Joan Goss, and Jackie Capps, who became like family through years of shared laughter and support.

Professionally, Lori dedicated many years of service to the culinary world, bringing joy and comfort through food at Bishop's Home Style Cooking. Her tenure at Morrison's and Piccadilly further showcased her commitment to excellence and her ability to make any meal feel like a home-cooked feast. Lori's colleagues and patrons alike will remember her for her friendly demeanor and her ability to make everyone feel at home.

Lori's love for animals was boundless, as she embraced all creatures with open arms and an open heart. Her dependability was a cornerstone of her character, making her a trusted and valued friend, colleague, and confidante.

May we honor her memory by living as she did—with open hearts, ready smiles, and a generosity of spirit that knows no bounds. Lori's life was a beautiful tapestry woven with the threads of joy, compassion, and unwavering friendship, and it is with immense gratitude that we reflect on the time we shared with her. Rest in peace, dear Lori, until we meet again.
