Lori received a degree as a Pharmacy Technician through ACCES-VR, but her real passion was caring for others.

She was a member of the Mid Hudson Valley Club of the Deaf for 40 years and held many offices within the organization. Lori was also a member of the Hudson Valley Catholic Deaf Church and a member of the Kerhonkson Federated Church Sewing Group. 


In addition to her parents and her step-father Stanley Hudson, Lori is survived by her loving husband James Gibson, whom she married on July 9, 1977, their children; James Gibson Jr. (Melissa) of Ellenville, Jason Gibson of Kerhonkson and Joshua Gibson (Katrina) of Kerhonkson; her brother Drew Decker (Brenda) of Kerhonkson; six grandchildren, Sierra, Mariah, Leah, Izzbella, Jason Jr. and Savannah. Lori was predeceased by her granddaughter, Jessica Gibson.


Visiting will be held on Saturday, June 24th from 2-4 PM with a celebration of her life immediately following at the Federated Church of Kerhonkson. Cremation will be private.

I'm so sad to learn of Lori's passing. She was a pillar of the Mid Hudson Deaf community. I was just looking at a cookbook made by MHVCD, with Lori's picture as president of the club. I can't imagine what a great loss this is to her family and friends. My heart aches for all of you. ...Rae
