Obituary for Lauri Ann Drobak
LAURI ANN DROBAK, 58, of Fulton, IL, succumbed to her illnesses and passed away to be with her parents and older sister in Heaven on Thursday, August 25, 2022, at Javon Bea Hospital in Rockford, IL.

Her funeral service will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at the Albany United Methodist Church with Reverend Toni Lucas, Pastor of the Albany United Methodist Church, officiating. A visitation will be held from 4:00 to 7:00 PM on Friday, September 9, 2022, at the Fulton Chapel of the Bosma- Renkes Funeral Home. Interment will be at Lusk Memorial Cemetery in Albany. A memorial has been established.

Lauri was born on the 19th of November 1963, to Richard D. “Dick” and Norma (Bultema) Burns in Clinton, IA. She was the youngest of six children and lived with her parents and family in Albany. She was educated in the Albany Grade Schools and was a graduate of Fulton High School. In high school, she trained to be a cosmetologist, but later began a career in the nuclear industry as a contract Health Physics Technician. In time, she was hired by the then Exelon Company, to work at the Cordova Nuclear Power station as permanent staff. Eventually, she switched fields to Mechanical Maintenance, where she made many close friends. She remained employed there until she retired. Lauri loved to travel. After retirement, she enjoyed traveling with her husband to jobsites around the country. She always said that she would rather travel now while she could enjoy it, instead of regretting it later when she couldn’t. In July of 1996, during an outage at the Cordova Plant, she met and fell in love with Ronald E. Drobak, a contract maintenance technician. They were married on July 25, 1998, in Binghamton, NY. They purchased a home in Fulton, IL, and both lived there until her passing.

Survivors include her husband, Ronald Drobak; two older sisters, Carolyn Dolph of Albany and Sherri Burns of Thomson, IL; two older brothers, Gary Burns of Albany and William “Bill” (Susan) Burns of Cordova, IL; one step-sister, Deb (Duane) Wiese of Camanche, IA; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Sandra Jones.
