Poppke Cousin – Lori Jean Peters Didricksen

A Poppke and Felchle cousin, Lori Jean Peters Didricksen, born 14 May 1960. Her mother is my first cousin. Her grandmother; my aunt Leone Poppke Dodge died 13 Oct 2011.

Lori is the first of the sixty people in my children’s generation to die.  Due to my grandfather’s large family, I have cousins close to my parents’ age, resulting in 1st cousins once removed that were my age.


Lori Jean Didricksen, 51, Wenatchee World newsroom assistant and beloved mother of Daniel Didricksen and Stefan Terrell Owens, died of complications from pneumonia March 17, 2012. She had been battling cancer for several months. She and her family lived near Wenatchee High School. Lori was born in Seattle May 14, 1960. She enjoyed reading and writing, and thoroughly enjoyed her job at The Wenatchee World.
Besides her two sons, Lori is survived by her mother, Joanne Peters of Seattle; her father, Joel Peters and stepmother, Diane of Yuma, AZ; her sister, Jennifer of Honolulu; her niece and nephew Jessica and Michael Davis, both of Wenatchee; and her companion, Jamie Blankenship.
