Lori Obereiner Bidwell

July 29, 1958 ~ November 12, 2018 (age 60)

Lori Obereiner Bidwell of Prunedale, CA passed away peacefully surrounded by her love ones on November 12, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer.  Lori was born to John and Marilyn (Schwarting) Obereiner on July 29, 1958 in Chicago, IL. She was the beloved wife of Mark Bidwell and loving mother to Jackson Bidwell.  Lori was the caring sister to Karen Ford of Austin TX, John (Jill) Obereiner of Libertyville IL, and James (Cheryl) Obereiner of El Dorado CA, and the cherished aunt to Nick, Justin, Annabel and Johnny. Lori graduated from New Trier East High School in Winnetka, IL and went on to receive a sociology degree from the University of Montana.  In 1987 Lori moved to the Monterey Peninsula where she met her husband Mark.  For the next 25 years Lori was CFO of California Cable and was running her own Payroll company. Of all Lori’s accomplishments, she was most proud of her son Jack.

Lori was truly a compassionate and caring person, affecting all who had the pleasure of meeting her.  She loved creating artistic pieces and giving them away to close friends and family.  Her love of animals was amazing, taking in every stray cat or dog that came her way, and making sure that they were taken care of.

The family would like to express our profound gratitude for the compassionate care provided by Dr. Nancy Ruben and the staff of Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

A service for Lori will be held at the St. John's Chapel in Monterey, 1490 Mark Thomas Drive Monterey, on Saturday December 8th, 2018 at 12:00pm.  An open-house celebration of Lori’s life will take place at her home following the service. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Lori’s honor to JDRF or ASPCA would be greatly appreciated.
