Lori Dawn Crossman Hochman
December 12, 1958 - January 11, 2017Lori passed away peacefully in her sleep at home in Carlsbad after a lengthy illness. She was born in Oceanside, California to Don and Bette (Ruebush) Crossman. She was preceded in death by her father. Lori graduated from Humboldt State University in Eureka, California with a degree in nursing and was a registered nurse. She worked at Tri-City Hospital among other venues, and spent 20 years in the medical field. Illness and the need to care for her mother precluded her from returning to nursing. Lori loved life, her family and friends, and the outdoors and spent many hours on or at the ocean with those close to her. Her favorite way to relax was stand up paddle boarding followed by a cup of tea. She is survived by her son Maxwell of Rancho Santa Fe, her mother Bette of Carlsbad, and brothers Ken Crossman (Sue) and Terry Crossman (Vicki), both of Oceanside. She was also greatly loved as Aunt Lori by four nieces and three nephews. Family and friends will gather onboard the Sea Star to celebrate Lori's life and spread her ashes at sea.
