Lori Lee Coy

Lori Lee Coy, 64, passed away peacefully Monday, May 25, 2020, at Thermopolis Rehabilitation and Wellness surrounded by her loved ones.

Born March 31, 1956, in Red Lodge, Mont., she was one of five children of Russell and Barbara (Smith) Reid. Upon graduation from Cody High School she worked as a cosmetologist for many years.

She loved horses and the mountains, whether it be cooking or riding. She could always be found with a smile on her face and a cup of coffee in her hand. Lori enjoyed the simple things in life; flowers, campfires, and blue birds, but most of all she cherished time spent with family and friends. Rodeo had a special place in her heart with her favorite place being in a grandstand watching her uncles and daughters compete. She spent much time in Thermopolis helping/working on her Uncle Bill (Carol) Smith's ranch.

As Lori rides into the final camp, her family finds comfort knowing she is spending eternity with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her mother, Barbara Reid of Cody; daughters, Jozie Coy of Cody and Jessie Coy of Kinnear, Wyo .; sisters, Linda (Paul) York, Brenda (John) O'Conner and Judy (Kevin) Wichern; brother, Bob Reid; and grandson, William Whitlock.

Preceding her in death was her grandmother, Edna Smith; and father, Russell Reid.

A celebration of Lori's Life will be held Monday, June 22 at 10 a.m. Bill and Carol Smith's ranch.

Mortimore Funeral Home is assisting the family and messages may be offered at
