Lori Tang-Nord

May 31, 1965 — December 29, 2023


On December 29, 2023, in the afterglow of Christmas, Lori Lynn Tang-Nord passed suddenly into the arms of her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. She was born May 31, 1965, to Roger and Linda (Rank) Tang in Livingston Montana. 

Lori was a vibrant source of love, light, and laughter in our lives. She had a servant’s heart always! When she was growing up Lori was greatly influenced by her participation in Campfire and Rainbow Girls. She began her 1st job at Pioneer Pies and Children’s World Pre-School not knowing she was on a lifelong path in caregiving and food service. When her family was young, she started her in-home day care and later moved to waitressing and excelled at both. Kids loved her and patrons never had an empty coffee cup. When her nephews needed daycare, she stepped up and filled the need so mom and dad could go to work knowing the boys were in safe, loving hands.  

Much later when Roger’s health failed, she was there for him so Linda could carry on at the salon. Besides these passions, Lori loved yard work, especially her ‘rock garden’. She was very creative and enjoyed crafting, traveling and time spent with extended family every chance she got. Lori loved a multitude of pets and dog-sat for many friends. She was an organizer and helped several friends clean out stuff and make sense of their space.

Her final job at Wesley Homes in Auburn filled her heart with huge joy as she served “Her residents” in the dining room. It was here she proclaimed, “I have found my purpose”!

Lori was preceded in death by her Dad, Grandparents Joe and Gerry Tang, John Rank and Genevieve and Bob Adams, all of Livingston. She is survived by her mom, children Matthew and Kendra, her brother Jeff (Michele) Tang, treasured nephews Gunnar and Cooper Tang, numerous Aunts and Uncles and cousins whom she dearly loved and some very special friends!

A memorial service is planned for Saturday, May 18th at the Livingston Christian Center at 11:00 a.m.  Interment to follow at Mountain View Cemetery. There will be a reception following the interment at Livingston Christian Center.
