Lori A. Powers

Lori Angela Powers (Anderson), 51, of Rochester passed away on August 10, 2019 at her residence.

Lori was born September 7, 1967 in Aberdeen, SD to Maurice and Virginia Anderson, as the last of 9 children.

She graduated from T.F. Riggs High School in Pierre, SD in 1985. On November 12, 1988 she married Tadd Powers of Rochester, MN in her hometown of Pierre at the Ss. Peter & Paul church. Tadd and Lori then moved to St. Louis, MO in 1989, where they had two of three children, Tadd G. Powers II and Addie Marie Powers. Lori and Tadd moved to Rochester, MN in 1997, where they had their third child Gavin M. Powers.

She is survived by her husband, Tadd G. Powers Sr.; two sons, Tadd (Courtney) G. Powers II and Gavin Mark Powers; and one daughter, Addie Marie Powers.

Lori worked as a Pharmacy Technician and retail through her years, but her main passion was raising her three children; she would prefer the title, Domestic Engineer.

Lori loved children and her Golden Retriever, Charlie. Lori could strike up a conversation with anybody and would often like to brag about her children. She was an avid sports enthusiast. She followed any sports her children took interest in, including the University of North Dakota hockey team, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, but the Minnesota Vikings was her team. She would be seen in her purple and gold jersey every Sunday, preparing exceptional food for the games and being a vocal fan from the comfort of her home.

In her later years, Lori loved to travel, yearly, to Door County, Florida, and Mexico. In 2018 and 2019, she visited Europe twice, seeing Prague, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, London, and Ireland.

The funeral service for Lori A. Powers will be at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday August 20, 2019 at Resurrection Church in Rochester, MN with her nephew, Fr. Tom Anderson, officiating.  Visitation will be from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, August 19, 2019 in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home.

We so enjoyed Lori's ready smile and friendly personality. She was always positive and so easy to talk to. Whenever we met up, she would update us on what was happening in her kids' lives. You could readily see how much she loved being a mom. Our hearts go our to her family during this time of sorrow. We know that her spirit will continue to touch the lives of loved ones and friends!


Sincerely,


Colleen & Larry

We are so sorry to hear of Lori's passing.  I have such wonderful memories of sitting with Lori (for many many years) wrapped in blankets watching our sons play hockey.  Her smile was infectious, she was such a positive energy, so much fun to be around, she will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you; Tadd, Garrett, Addie, and Gavin, as you go through this incredibly difficult time of grief.  Our hearts go out to you,

I met Lori Last September in Minnesota. I also had the chance to meet her husband and two of her kids. Words can’t express my sorrow for Lori and for her family. Her sisters from HBF are reeling from this loss. I pray for peace for your family. And please know the rest of her sisters will stay strong in the fight and remember her always. 

I had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Lori last Fall. I graduated with her some Garrett/Tadd and was close with her daughter-in-law in high school theatre and show choir. Lori had the greatest smile and was so empathetic and kind. I’m so fortunate to have gotten to know her despite the circumstance and my heart is with her family and friends during this time. Rest easy, Lori. You are loved.

With a heavy heart, I wish my friend Tadd Powers II and family eventual peace as you deal with the loss of a beloved mother and wife. My love to you all. 

my deepest sympathy & prayers to all of Lori’s family. I fondly recall her parents Ginnie & Andy & the years of our involvement at St. Joseph school in Pierre, SD.  Lori was a delightful little girl with a joyful spirit. I’m just so very sorry for the loss of your wife, mother, sister, & dear woman for all of you. I hold you all in my prayers & May she Rest In Peace in the arms of her Lord. May Your memories bring you comfort & peace. Deepest sympathy, Juanita McKeever

So sad to learn that Lori had passed away.  Our condolences to the Power and Anderson families.  May the Peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ rest and abide in you now and always.
