Born on November 12, 1960.

Passed away on July 19, 2020.

Lori Allison was born in Toronto, Ontario to Bill and Margot Allison who immigrated to Canada from Scotland. Lori loved science in school and received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biochemistry from the University of Toronto. She then did postdoctoral research in Paris, France and at Rutgers University that helped pioneer putting foreign genes into plant cells. She came to Nebraska in 1996 to take a faculty position in the UNL Biochemistry Department, where she met her husband, John Markwell. After a half dozen years of teaching and research, she decided to change careers and pursued a Pharm.D. degree from Creighton University and became a pharmacist at CHI St. Elizabeth Hospital.

Lori loved cats and was thought of affectionately as a Cat Lady by many that knew her. She loved Sammy from 2000 to 2015 and then doted on Allison, a three-legged rescue cat from 2016 until her passing. Her cats were a major part of her life and shared every year with friends and family on her Christmas cards. She enjoyed knitting and made beautiful, unique gifts for her family members and friends. Wearing red and being an avid Cornhusker fan was a passion of Lori’s, as was visiting National Parks. She was a loving aunt and spoiled her nieces and nephews with candy and fun presents at birthdays and holidays and was a fun and influential part of life for John’s children and grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking with her husband and trying new foods.

Lori is survived by her husband John Markwell and his kids (Tristan and Caitlin), her parents (Bill and Margot), three brothers (Robert, Peter and David), two sisters in law (Patrice and Robin), four nephews (Cameron, Connor, Graham and Thomas) and two nieces (Lauren and Grace).
