Volunteer: Lori Sorteberg
Location: Thief River Falls, MN
Volunteering since: 2011

Why do you volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley?
I want to live a “serve others” lifestyle. By serving others and making their lives better, I feed my own soul, and it seems I always receive back more joy and blessings than I ever give.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my two children, Lisa and Sean. They have brought more joy and happiness to my life than I ever imagined.

What’s the most exotic place you have visited?
The most exotic place I have been to is Puerto Rico. My family was stationed there when I was a young girl. This spring, almost 50 years later, I will be going back on vacation with my husband Mike, and my children and their spouses.
