Lori Ann McKee; The McKee Family sadly announces the passing of Lori Ann McKee , loving wife and mother. Lori was born to Joseph Virgil Davis Jr. and Cindy Beth Herndon Davis of Tucson, AZ on August 12, 1971. She and her family moved to Bullhead City, AZ in 1988.
On July 4, 2001 she married Doug McKee and together, they raised two boys and three girls: Douglas Tyler McKee currently at Southern Utah University, Matthew Laurence McKee also at Southern Utah University, Saylor Nicole McKee who will be an attending Senior at Mohave High School this fall, and twin girls, Lexi Taylor McKee and Laci Ann McKee who will be advancing into the 7th Grade at Montessori Preparatory Academy this coming year.
Lori was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was a loving and passionate mother and wife; nothing was more important to her than her family. With her family, she enjoyed outdoor activities and attending the numerous athletic events and musical programs that her children participated in. Lori also celebrated life with her friends everywhere she went, from church events to school functions to friendly lunches. Lori had a permanent smile and a kind, sweet heart.
In 2012 Lori was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer. Although the odds were stacked against her, she courageously battled the disease for over ﬁve years, inspiring those around her and bafﬂing the medical community as she fought the disease back time and time again...Lori was the living embodiment of the term "never give up". Sadly, and despite all her efforts, the cancer spread too rapidly and she succumbed to the disease on the evening of June 9, 2017. She passed peacefully and comfortably in their family home surrounded by all ﬁve children, her brother-in-law Jeff McKee, her niece Maria McKee Plott, her mother-in-law Delores McKee and her loving husband Doug. Each was privileged to give her a kiss goodbye and whisper a sweet and private message into her ear before she slipped the bonds of earth and returned to her Heavenly Father.
Lori is the niece of Scott Herndon, cousin of Kolette and Jessica Herndon, Granddaughter of Donovan and Marge Herndon, niece of Hodge and Jalane Herndon, and niece of Kermit and Norma Danner of Macomb Il.
Graveside services will be held at 3:00 PM Tuesday June 20, 2017 at the Pennington Point Cemetery. Dodsworth-Piper-Wallen Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Please sign the guestbook and leave condolences at www.dodsworthfh.com
