It is with great sadness the family of Lori Gail Martin, age 55, announce she fell asleep peacefully, surrounded by family on January 3, 2020. Born June 24, 1964, Lori was a native Nashvillian and long-term resident of Lebanon, Tennessee.

Lori’s boisterous personality and infectious laugh will forever be remembered by her loving daughters Lindsay Graham and Sara (Graham) Huddleston. She is also survived by her favorite Son-in-Law Richard “Ricky” Huddleston. Known for her ability to always be fashionably late, Lori added humor and light to every family gathering. A frequent salutation, “Lori Gail” was uttered by her devoted Mother, Jacquelyn “Jackie” Winnett. Lori and her Mother shared a dedicated bond and enjoyed spending time with one another frequently. Father, Ronald Martin, predeceased Lori in 2001 and left an indelible mark on his daughter. Step-father Marvin “Blackie” Winnett was always adored and appreciated by Lori.

She was always engaged with her grandchildren and her love for them was undeniably evident. Lori was survived by her siblings; Randy Martin, Jason Martin, Susie (Martin) Aguilar and husband Omar Aguilar, and James Elwin Duncan Martin.
