Glorine "Lori" Stohler Wyman, age 86, lately of Arthur, NE, formerly of Indianapolis, IN, passed away, peacefully on Sunday, June 30, 2019 at her home in Arthur.
Lori was born March 22, 1933, in La Feria, TX to George and Christina (Schneider) Stohler. She later graduated High School in Waco, TX.
As a young woman she moved to Los Angeles, CA and worked as a business woman for Hughes Aircraft. Eventually she joined a sister in Indianapolis and thereafter met and married Charles A. McConnell. After this marriage, she met and married Morris H. Wyman to whom she was married for 30 years until his passing in 2012. She then spent the remainder of her life in Indianapolis until recently joining her daughter in Arthur.
Lori was a professional business woman working as an executive secretary, department leader, and salesperson. She as very active in her church, church choir, and served as a volunteer for many charities. Most particularly, she spearheaded the funding and establishment (1984) of Indianapolis Dayspring Center/Homeless Shelter and worked as it's first executive director. Dayspring is still active today serving hundreds of families every year.
She was a very active woman and enjoyed cooking, gardening, singing, take care of babies, and all four seasons. In autumn, she would say "this is my favorite time of year", when a pristine snow covered the ground she would again say, "this is my favorite time of year", then spring arrived with vibrant colors and that was also her favorite time of year. Her home was filled with warmth and great hospitality. She hosted many, many dinner parties over the years and anybody and everybody was welcome at her dinner table.
