Lorraine Marks Burdette, 62, of Big Chimney went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, April 21, 2020.

She was born on September 11, 1957 in Latrobe, PA to John O. Marks Jr., and Elizabeth Wolfe Posten.

Lorrie graduated from East Bank High School and spent 37 years at AEP before retiring to pursue her life's passion of canine search and rescue. She was an avid animal lover and proud member of WV K-9 SAR. She was praised and nationally recognized alongside her hero dog Soot for saving a man's life. Lorrie had a passion for life that inspired all that knew her and loved her. Her strength and determination to overcome any obstacle she faced was truly heroic.

She was preceded in death by her stepson Eric R. Burdette.

She is survived by the love of her life of 31 years Randy L. Burdette who was her rock and safe haven through the course of her illness. She is also survived by her father John O. Marks Jr., and step mother Sandy Marks, mother Elizabeth Posten and step father Charles Posten, siblings Debbie Loudermilk, Cindy Giovannagelo (Fabian), Stacy Marks, Johnna Melchiorre (Joe), John O. Marks III, Richard Reifendifer, and Carrie Newsome, step daughter Miranda Broyles (Ryan) and grandsons Myles and Max Broyles as well as countless special nieces and nephews, extended family, friends and her furbabies Minnie and Lynus.
Special thanks to the Sarcoma team at Duke University for their steadfast care; your miracles don't go unnoticed.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to WV K-9 SAR in honor of Lorrie's life passion.

Due to COVID-19, a celebration of life will be held in Lorrie's honor at a later time.

Online condolences may be sent to

Arrangements are in the care of Hafer Funeral Home, 50 North Pinch Road Elkview, WV 25071.

We will miss you. From your love of animal rescue to the way you could knock out some crab legs. From your DIY abilities to your welding skills. You were fearless in so many ways. Compassionate, caring and giving of yourself. We cherish every memory and will miss you forever. Until we meet again. Pete and Marsha

My condolences to your entire family for the loss of Lorrie. She was a sweet & caring person. We played softball
together for a couple of years when we were 19 & 20 years old. We played on a team coached by William Samms in
Marmet. We were sponsored by Macky Webb that ran the Malibu Club in Kanawha City. She was a great outfielder & pitcher.
I' m sure she will really be missed by so many people & her fur babies. Love & prayers to you & your family in the weeks
& months ahead. May God wrap his arms around & comfort you daily.
