Lori Chaudrue Heinrich, age 64, passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family members on March 20. She was born in El Paso, Texas on March 24, 1959 to Robert George and Mary Catherine Chaudrue (Dunn). As the daughter of an officer in the US Army, Lori spent some of her earlier years in South Korea, later moved to various domestic US Army bases, and finally graduated from high school in Germany. In college, Lori majored in Art and English graduating from Miami University in 1980 with a degree in Technical Writing. Shortly after graduating from college, she settled in Washington Township, Ohio where she worked and raised her family. The majority of her working career was spent at Lexis-Nexis in Miamisburg, Ohio where she was a technical writer and ultimately the manager of a group charged with designing and testing customer interfaces with the company's internet products. Despite working full time, Lori remained dedicated to serving her family in many ways, including shuttling her children to various extracurricular activities, ensuring birthdays and holidays were special occasions, and through countless road trips to see extended family spread out across the country. Lori was also a talented athlete competing most notably in gymnastics but also participating in cheerleading, softball, and bowling. Later in life, she discovered Pilates which became her fitness passion. Lori loved painting and photography with many pieces of her work on display in her house. After retirement, Lori and husband Don traveled widely, enjoying many natural and cultural sights and experiences. She especially loved visiting Tuscany, Scotland and several US Natural Parks. In her quiet time, Lori was an avid reader participating in several book clubs over the years. She regularly attended Southbrook Christian Church and, later, Normandy United Methodist Church, participating in many charitable activities including medical mission trips to Belize. Lori is survived by her parents, her husband Donald Heinrich, her sons Brian Davis and Jeff Davis, her daughter Michelle Nasrallah (Davis), step-son Patrick Heinrich, step-daughter Christina, grandchildren Maya and Zane Nasrallah and Adrian and Jonas Heinrich, sisters Teresa Kleinen (Chaudrue), Judi Lyons (Chaudrue), Viki Chaudrue, and Megan Carnes (Chaudrue), and brother Justin Chaudrue. Family and friends are invited to a visitation at Newcomer Funeral Home, 820 Miamisburg Centerville Road, Centerville, OH from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm on Sunday, March 24 as well as a funeral service at 10:00 am on Monday, March 25.
