On February 9, 2017 Lorisue Corgan was suddenly taken from us in a tragic house fire. She was born in Elko, Nevada on May 29, 1987 to Tracey and Pauline Corgan. Lorisue is survived by her three children; Gracie Corgan, Carlos Gonzales, and Angel Gonzales; parents, Tracey and Pauline Corgan; sister, Tori; brothers, James and Will Corgan; two adopted children, Victor and Cynthia Corgan; her grandparents, Jim and Esther Corgan; several nieces and nephews, and the many many friends she considered family.
Lorisue’s life took on a new meaning the day her first child was born and she loved being a mother. From that moment she devoted her life to her children. Lorisue had enough love, life, energy, and drive, to adopt two other children. Although family and keeping them together was her top priority she spent the last 7 months of her life in Salt Lake City, with her youngest son Angel providing for him the support and love he needed to survive. He was born premature with several health issues and he contracted viruses which further compounded his problems. She was away from her home and family but never lost hope and never wavered on what she expected the outcome to be.
Lorisue loved animals and being outdoors doing any activity with family and friends. She loved all animals but seemed to have a special gift when it came to birds. Lorisue was able to take a sick or hurt bird near death and nurse them back to health at which time she would slowly let them transition back into their world. At the time she started having health issues with her unborn she was learning to be a dog groomer which seemed to truly be her job niche.
In 2011 Lorisue met a handsome young man who quickly became the love of her life and soon became the father of her children, Baltazar Gonzales. They loved together, lived together, and ultimately perished together. Neither of them could have carried on without the other.
Lorisue lit up every room she entered and could outshine the sun with her big, wide, authentic, smile, her bright green loving eyes, and her brilliant red hair. She will be sorely missed, and never forgotten. Her vibrant personality lives on in our hearts and in her children.
With heavy hearts we will be saying good-bye at her services which will be held on Thursday February 23, 2017 in Burns Funeral Home at 10:00 am.
