Lori Susan (Bond) Karan

FEBRUARY 5, 1960 - MAY 31, 2020

Lori was born to Marjorie and Russell Bond on February 5, 1960 in Washington DC, and she grew up in Silver Spring, MD. She and her brother Jeff shared a love of music, especially the Beach Boys and the Cowsills.

Lori was a loyal and dedicated friend – throughout her childhood, college, and graduate school, she developed lifelong friendships that she always treasured.

After receiving her MBA from the University of Maryland in 1984, she married Steven Karan in 1985.

She worked in marketing research at Ernst & Whinney and Marroitt before starting a family in 1990 and moving to Pinehurst, NC in 1997.

She was a loving mother who always wanted the best for her children, Ashlyn and Scott (and her cats – Joe, Jupiter, and Mercury).

She also was an avid reader and she shared her love of reading with her children, her book club friends, and thecommunity at the Country Bookshop in Southern Pines.

To remember Lori and celebrate her life, we plan to hold a memorial service when it is safer to gather together. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation at https://themmrf.org/
