Lori A. Berman
Age 59 of Joliet, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at home with her husband by her side.
Born August 11, 1960 in Joliet, Lori Ann was the daughter of Larry and the late Beverly (Hicks) Kambic. She was raised and educated in Joliet and graduated from Joliet West High School with the class of 1978. In 1981 she married her best friend, Mark Berman in Holy Family Catholic Church. Together Lori and Mark started a home and raised their family together in Joliet. On top of taking care of the home, Lori also helped with the family business at Linda’s Pizza. She also served as a security guard at Joliet West and a crossing guard for School District 86. Lori loved tending to her yard and had a creative eye for home décor. Lori and Mark loved taking weekend getaways together along with socializing at local restaurants. Lori would make friends with everyone she encountered. She was a devoted catholic and longtime parishioner of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. Lori was always there for her children and could always be heard over all others at wrestling matches.
