Lori Lupo Obituary

Lori Ann Lupo, 64, died on Thursday, March 7th 2024. Lori was born April 3rd 1959 in Fort Lewis, WA to Homer and Barbara Harding.

Lori was known by most as one of the hardest working people they have ever met. She was also one of the kindest and most loving people. Fierce and passionate in everything she did; never letting anyone or anything stop her from achieving what she set out to do and she believed everyone else could do the same.

After graduating from North Kitsap High School in 1977, Lori went on to study at Mr. Lee's Beauty School (Class of 1978) in Bremerton, WA which began her career as a Master Cosmetologist that spanned 47 years. Over that time, after working for other salons, including Rofflers Hair Salon in Hinesville, she ran three hair salons, starting with Lori's Hair Salon, attached to the back of her home, eventually taking over Special Effects Hair Salon on Ryon Ave. in Hinesville, GA, until she moved to Washington State in 2004 and eventually opening Main Street Hair Station in Kingston, WA. 

Lori had a passion for learning; always attending hair shows and classes to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and techniques of beauty. Her passion for learning eventually led to her taking part in countless shows for MATRIX Hair Care in Atlanta, GA and New York City, NY. In her later years, she became an Instructor of Cosmetology for Savannah Tech where she was tough, but always taught with passion and the belief her students could achieve anything with hard work and determination. She was always so proud of her students - her team - at every competition.

Lori loved her family and friends with every fiber of her being. She made sure everyone knew her door was always open whenever they needed it. She had a love of community; volunteering her time and talents at nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and many public events.

Lori's children were her greatest loves. Not only did she attend just about every school event and trip, but she was also wholeheartedly involved in every scout trip and event. She could sell Girl Scout Cookies and Boy Scout Popcorn to anyone and did. No matter what they went through, she was always there for her children and made sure they knew they were all loved equally and would never walk alone. She loved being a grandmother most of all. Known as Meemo, she was always up for a good time of games and laughter.

Lori is survived by her children, Shaé White, Trey Bonett, and Julia Lupo; grandchildren, Vincent Bonett, Kathryn Levans, and Alexander Levans; great-grandson, Jaxson Ward; and seven siblings.
