Lorie LaTray, 40

Dan McClelland

Lorie A. LaTray, born February 9, 1976, became an Angel on December 26, 2016.
She was the daughter of the late William LaTray, Jr. and Phyllis (Drasye) Crate. She resided in Piercefield as a young girl and then Tupper lake where she graduated from Tupper Lake High School in 1995.
After high school she moved to North Carolina.  There she became a certified nurse's aide. She worked at several nursing homes there where she gained enormous experience. One home that really touched her and she talked about often was when she worked the Jewish Nursing Home.
She returned home in 2006 and began working for Mercy Living Center. She was loved by the residents and their families and did private duty work on the side for some of them.
Lorie's one motto was “you can go in with a frown and let them win or go in with a big smile and keep them guessing.” Her smile was infectious and she took such great care of everyone giving more at times than she had the energy for. She always had a radiant glow to her that made any sad day bright.
She made her home with her fiance, Calvin Hall, and five children, Tyler Exware (Taylor), Kimberly, Tyler, Brian, and Calvin Hall, Jr. She enjoyed keeping their summers filled with mini vacations at different campsites. She attended all the school activities she could and was a proud mom of all the children.
At the time of her death Lorie became an organ donator and will live on in someone else in need. That was her final and most important gift of all. Her young unnecessary death will help several people in the need of organs and tissue.
She is survived by her fiance Calvin Hall, her children, Tyler, Kimberly, Tyler, Brian and Calvin Jr.; her mother Phyllis (Steve) Crate, grandfather Donald Drasye, Aunts and Uncles Steven Drasye of VA, Karen Brownell (Jim),  Donald Drasye (Becky) and Robert LaTray (Julie). She has many cousns and friends that will miss hergreatly.
She was predeceased by her father William LaTray, Jr, her grandmother, Barbara Drasye,   her Aunt Bonita Christianson andgrandparents Bill and Marjorie LaTray and Uncle Jim LaTray.
