Lori A. Millsap, 59, of Waterloo, died Monday, November 26, 2018 at her home.

She was born July 13, 1959 in Waterloo, daughter of Kenneth and Genevieve Klein Millsap. She graduated from Waterloo West High School in 1977. She was a telemarketer for Telecross, APAC, and several other companies for many years.

Lori collected Precious Moments ornaments, of which she had hundreds. She enjoyed crafting with her mother and they attended many craft shows. She loved to cook, particularly sweets, which she liked to share with her fellow residents at Liberty Manor. She also enjoyed card games, board games and bingo, all of which she had a natural talent for winning. She loved dogs and would give treats to the dogs at her apartment complex regularly.

She is survived by two sisters, Deborah (John) Stewart, and Trudy Stewart, both of Waterloo, IA; three nieces, Sarah (Jason) Heerts of New Hartford, IA, Jennifer (Greg) Foust of Solon, OH, and Megan Stewart of Marion, IA; three great-nieces, Emma, Lydia and Nora Walton; and five great-nephews, Steven and Samuel Heerts, Colton and Liam Foust, and Ira Walton.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Denise Nienkark; maternal grandparents, John and Elsie Klein, and paternal grandparents, Raymond and Della Millsap.

    I knew Lori as an enthusiastic and dependable member of the clarinet section when we played in the WHS band together. So very sorry to hear of your loss - my prayers for strength & healing during this transition time.
