Lori A. Holveck, 38 of Wilmington, DE passed away peacefully Thursday evening October 17th surrounded by her loving friends and family, after a long seven-year battle with breast cancer.
Lori was a devoted mom and fiercely passionate about her two children and embraced each and every moment with them. She found joy and gratefulness in everyday, but she was most happy when she was relaxing on the beach, attending her favorite concerts or exploring all the Disney Parks.
Lori has a kaleidoscope of friends scattered throughout many different circles. She worked for Artisans Bank for ten plus year, The Upper Cut, and during the season for Sambo’s Tavern. She also cherished the many memories and friends she made while substituting at her children’s school, Providence Creek Academy. Lori was an avid bowler Thursday night with the Mixed Majors at Pleasant Hill Lanes. She graduated from Thomas McKean High School where she exceeded in track and through invitation was invited by the World Sports Exchange to compete in London.

Taylor; her maternal grandparents, William L. and Julia A. Jones. She is survived by her husband Eric A. Holveck Sr., her children, Natalee A. and Eric A. Holveck Jr.; mother-in-law, Frances T.
