Lori-Lou was born and raised in Calgary Alberta, where she worked at the library, multiple clothing stores, grocery stores, United Grain Growers, and a local radio station, all before marrying her husband Warren. After they were married, Warren’s youth ministry career took them to Louisiana, Alabama, and Prince Albert Saskatchewan where most of her time was spent raising her four boys and volunteering for Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries and Kateri House Ministries.
Lori-Lou’s love of numbers and spreadsheets led her back to school where she upgraded her education and enrolled in accounting courses. As her boys were getting older, she felt it was time to return to the work force and accepted a bookkeeping position at Milsap Fuels (a Petro-Canada bulk marketer). Her husband’s journey from youth ministry to priesthood in the Ukrainian Catholic Church took them east to Ottawa for three years while he studied at Holy Spirit Seminary. At this time, Lori-Lou worked again as a bookkeeper for Petro-Canada Fuels.
Happy to be back on the prairies in beautiful Kamsack, SK, an opportunity came up to use her bookkeeping skills here at Andrychuk Funeral Home. Lori-Lou enjoys the administrative work and very much embraces serving all people in their time of need. She currently volunteers as treasurer for St. Michael’s Youth Camp at Madge Lake in Duck Mountain Provincial Park. When not at work, she enjoys cooking at the parish with the other women, walking, biking, reading, and spending time with her family.
