Lori Desmarais Obituary

SWANSEA- Lori A. (Machado) Desmarais, age 62, of Swansea, passed away on the evening of Saturday, March 2, 2024, surrounded by the love, comfort, and care of her family at her brother’s residence in Taunton. She was the loving wife to David A. Desmarais of Swansea. 

Born in Taunton, Lori was one of six children born to the late Joseph B. and Marguerite M. (Rudolphi) Machado. She was raised in Taunton and attended Taunton Public Schools, where she was a graduate of Taunton High School.  

A hard working woman, Lori worked various jobs throughout her career. Most of her time working was employed as an Etcher at Princess House Inc., in Dighton. 

In her spare time, Lori had a wide array of hobbies and interests. She liked to challenge herself by solving jigsaw puzzles and she enjoyed tending to her garden and caring for her lawn. She loved to spend time outside, skiing in her younger years, sailing the waters of Cape Cod and fishing on the Taunton River. Above all, Lori treasured the time spent and memories made with her family, especially her dogs Scotty and Levi and her late dog Brady.

In addition to her husband, Lori is survived by her dear siblings: Maryann Johnson and her husband Jim of Bloomington, IN, Joseph P. Machado of Taunton, Lisa Marie Dunlop of Taunton, Lynn M. McElroy and her husband Robert of Raynham, and the late Anton D. Machado; and also her numerous nieces, nephews, friends, and extended family members. 

Lori’s Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2024, from 1 pm 3 pm followed by a Funeral Service at 3pm in the Silva Funeral Home, 80 Broadway (at Saint Mary’s Square) in Taunton. Burial will be private.

Rather than send flowers for her services, in honor of Lori’s love for animals, her family requests donations be made to the Taunton Animal Shelter, 821, W Water St. Taunton MA 02780.
