Lorelyn Adams

Lorelyn (Lori) Zimmerman Adams of Mt. Victory, Ky. passed away on July 22, 2021 after a short bout with cancer.
Lori was born in Eaton Rapids, the daughter of Luman and Catherine Zimmerman on November 7, 1947. She spent a large portion of her life living on Kemler Road in Eaton Rapids, graduating from Eaton Rapids High School. After she graduated, she spent some time traveling, including spending time with her sister, Elaine, and her family in Greece, and then went to Japan for a short time before coming back to Eaton Rapids.
Lori had at least one horse through most of her life. She loved horses and dogs. Red and Lori raised, trained and showed Arabian horses for over 35 years from Redlor Stables on Kemler Road. When they decided it was time to retire, they moved to Mt. Victory, Kentucky. Red started and became pastor of a church in Mt. Victory and Lori worked with the youth of the church and eventually also became a pastor and worked with Red in the church.
Lori was friends with pretty much everyone she met. Anyone that knew her loved being around her and enjoyed the spirit she brought to any gathering. She loved to travel. She loved the beach best, but she had fun and made friends no matter where she went.
There are no words to say how much Lori will be missed – by family and friends. She made an impact on anyone who knew her, no matter how short or long the acquaintance was.
Lori is survived by her husband of 50 years, Red (Clarence) Adams; stepson, Ronald (Janice); grandchildren, Melissa and Nicole Adams; great-granddaughters, Remi and Haley Adams; brother-in-law, Stanley Krawczyk; nieces, Diane (Craig) Galloway and Kathleen Hendrickson; great-niece, Deanna (John) Cornell; great-nephew, Robert (Amanda) Young; great great-nephews, Ethan and Conrad Young; and great great-niece, Aoife Young. She also leaves behind her beloved Casey, a dog she rescued many years ago.
Lori is preceded in death by her parents, Luman and Catherine Zimmerman; sister, Elaine Krawczyk; and nephew, Stanley L. Krawczyk. Also many horses and dogs that were her “children.”
Lori was cremated and there was a small memorial with friends and family at her home. She didn’t want a funeral or flowers. Instead, she wanted donations in her name to the Pulaski, Kentucky Animal Shelter.
