Lori Anne Peña 1957-2022


True to her fire spirit, Lori was born in Seattle on July 19, 1957, the hottest day of the year, reaching 84.4 F. She was previously married to Mac Ross, and forever wed to Edmonds, her port in a storm, her haven.

Though she had no children of her own, by way of the therapeutic stylist's chair she nurtured an entire community, her extended family. Her passion for art, expression, and helping others look and feel their best kept Salon Peña open for 32 years.

We will never forget her laugh; it shook us all, contagious, powerful. Her sass, her wisdom, her heart that loved as big as the ocean. She will be dearly missed by her sister Terry; brother Frank; eight nephews, five nieces, seven great-nephews, and four great-nieces; and thousands of clients and friends.

Today we cheer to her life, with a chilled dirty martini and three blue cheese olives, of course, and count our blessings to have felt her beautiful fire.

A service will be held on April 2 at 1 p.m. at Becks Tribute Center in Edmonds, followed by a private family service at 3 p.m. There will be a live, online service for anyone who cannot attend:
