Byron-Bergen Central School Board of Education Vice President Lori Nelson, 49, passed away suddenly yesterday (October 19, 2010). Mrs. Nelson represented Byron-Bergen on the Board of Education since her election in July 2000.
“Our community suffered a great loss yesterday with the sudden passing of Lori Nelson,” said Dr. Scott Martzloff, Byron-Bergen CSD Superintendent of Schools. “Lori served our Board with distinction for 11 years, 8 of which were in the role of Vice President.”
The Byron-Bergen CSD community sends its deepest condolences and sympathy to Lori’s family and friends during this difficult time, including Robert, her husband, and their three children Mitchel, Bobbi Gayle and Regina, all Byron-Bergen CSD graduates. “Lori was a passionate advocate for Byron-Bergen students and staff,” said Dr. Martzloff. “She was well liked and respected by her Board colleagues and will be sorely missed here as a leader.”
In addition to her service as Board Vice President, Lori was a New York State School Boards Association voting delegate, and a member of the Executive Board of the Genesee Valley School Boards Association. She was also active in Boy Scouts.
Information about funeral services will be announced as they become available.
