I first met Lorrie in 2000 when I became part of “The Lunch Bunch”, a group of friends who had been meeting for lunch every week for many years.  She was always smiling and full of stories about this group and what fun they had through the years.  My favorite memory is a trip I made with her, Bob, and some others in this group to Italy.  We started in Rome and then spent a week in a villa in Cortona where we visited many of the small towns in Tuscany.  Then we went to Florence,Venice, and Lake Como.  It was not just the places I saw but the people I was with that made it so special.  Lorrie loved her family, her church, and her friends.  It was a life well lived.

To the Family of Lorrie & Bob Provost - - I offer my sincere, heartfelt condolences to the Provost Family . . . I remember Lorrie as being so kind and compassionate . . . I was fortunate to work for Bob when he opened the Greenville Indoor Racquet Club at its inception and vividly remember Lorrie bringing her children to The Club during those years in the 1970's.  Lorrie always had a tremendous smile and was so warm in her regards to others.

The world is indeed a better place because of the many positive attributes of Lorrie Provost.

Sincerely - - - Richard Hardaway / Greenville, SC

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Provost family. Lorrie (and Bob) were a very important part of our lives through Engaged Encounter. They made us always feel like family. We understand the loss of a parent. We hope you can find comfort in the knowledge that she was a beautiful person inside and out and greatly influenced the lives of others in many ways. 
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Provost family,  
Lorrie was just a special person and taught me so much!  As a young mother, she was both mentor and a friend.  She opened her home to Mike and I and always treated us like family.  I am saddened by your loss but confident she is in the presence of the Lord today and sharing memories with all those who have gone before us.  Prayers for all the Provost family, especially Bob Sr, who was such a devoted husband.  Wish I could attend the service but know you are in my thoughts and prayers today and in the coming days.
Much love to you,  Ginny Magee
