BRISTOL — Lorayne (Lori) Ann Lattrell 78, passed away unexpectedly at home on Saturday March 7, 2020.
Laurie was born on Jan. 29, 1942, in Rutland, Vt., to Walter and Elizabeth Starling.
She graduated in 1959 from Middlebury Union High School.
She met her loving husband of 57 years, Donald Lattrell Sr., in 1959 and they wed on July 28, 1962.

She enjoyed sports in her early life, being outdoors, fishing and spending time at the family camp of 35 years in Goshen. She loved watching the Red Sox and the Patriots. She was competitive and challenged anyone to a game of Jeopardy or cards, often winning. She was an amazing cook, known especially for her famous chili, mac and cheese and ham rolls.
