Alliance Chaplain’s Wife Dies

Alliance Chaplain Kevin Pies (U.S. Army) lost his beloved wife, Lorrie, Sunday morning, September 21, ending her three-year battle with cancer. Lorrie’s steadfast faith and perseverance were a testimony of God’s constant presence in her life.  
As a military chaplain’s wife, Lorrie had opportunity to be involved in numerous projects and outreaches. Lorrie was a talented violinist, teacher, and writer. Her life touched many facets of the Colorado Springs, Colorado, community, including the Colorado Springs Philharmonic and the Child Development Center at the Air Force Academy. She was a member of the Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild as well as a supporting writer of the recent International Bible Society’s Military Family Bible, Hope Beyond the Battle, the National Day of Prayer Task Force, and Campus Crusade’s Military Ministry Web site. 
Lorrie still had time to participate in son Kenny’s band activities, mentor her college-age daughter, Victoria, and complete her college degree—much of this during the time when she was battling cancer. Lorrie served her family and community with a humble spirit and to God’s glory. Lorrie was 47.  
Visitation will be held Saturday, September 27, 2008, from 2-5 p.m. at Swan Law Funeral Home in Colorado Springs. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, September 28, 2008, at 2:30 p.m. at the Soldiers’ Memorial Chapel, Ft. Carson, CO, with an Internment Service at the Mountview Cemetery, Billings, MT, on October 1, 2008, at 11 a.m. 
Condolences may be sent to: Chaplain (MAJ) Kevin Pies, 6710 Dublin LP W, Colorado Springs, CO 80918.
