Lori L. Rodman
May 07, 1958 ‒ December 10, 2017
Lori L. Rodman, age 59 of Radnor was received into the arms of her Heavenly Father, early Sunday morning, December 10, 2017 following a hard fought battle with cancer.
She was born on May 7, 1958 in Columbus to the late Emanuel E. Rogers Jr. and Rhoda M. (Jewell) Rogers. A graduate of Buckeye Valley High School in 1976, she also attended The Ohio State University.
In 1978 she married George Rodman her husband and partner in life for 39 years. Through thick and thin, together they made a home, raised their family, and operated their family farm. Described as a facilitator of her husband’s business interests, together they shared in many endeavors in addition to owning and operating the Rodman-Neeper Funeral Home, successors of the Bennett and Brown Funeral Home in Delaware until 2012.
She possessed the fortitude to figure things out on her own, from upholstering and sewing, to financial opportunities. Lori had a flair for flower gardening, quilting, and canning.
Strong in her faith, she was a member of Radnor Baptist Church, and bible study groups. She enjoyed a knack for decorating and was an artist with water colors.
An extraordinary wife and mother, Lori instilled a faith in her children, that they could conquer anything. Touching many lives, she made everyone special. She was the best.
In addition to her husband George, Lori is also survived by her treasured children Ross (Calley) Rodman of Radnor, Rachel (Eric) Dickens of Delaware, precious granddaughter Hadley Rodman, brother Mark (Mary) Rogers of London, and extended family.
