Loni passed away on Monday, March 23, 2021 in Prairie Village, Kansas.

Loni was born on June 13, 1994 in Lawrence, KS, the daughter of David and Laurie (Corpuz) LaCour. She was a member of the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma and a descendant of the Nez Perce Tribe, the Yakama Tribe, the Kiowa Tribe, and the Philippines.

She attended elementary schools in Lawrence, Kansas, Lapwai, Idaho, and Union Gap, Washington. She graduated from Lawrence High School May 2012. She attended the University of Kansas from 2012-2014. She met her beloved partner, Jason Kane in 2016 and together they raised two dogs, Chalmers and Mhysa, in Kansas City.

Loni followed in her late father’s footsteps, by becoming a woodworker and small business owner. She started LaCour Design Co. where she handmade wooden signs, art pieces, and other creations to sell at the Strawberry Swing indie craft fair, local retail stores, and online. She took pride in using her dad’s tools to create works of art. Woodworking and being a small business owner allowed her to flourish as part of the Maker Community.

Loni’s other interests included watching and attending sporting events, listening to and playing music, watching movies, craft beer tasting, going to dog parks, enjoying the company of friends, and having a vivacious sense of humor.

Survivors include her mother Laurie LaCour, sister Lucinda LaCour, brother-in-law Thy Nguyen, grandparents Max Corpuz Jr. and Grace LaCour, her beloved partner Jason Kane, and her dog best friends Chalmers and Mhysa.

Loni was preceded in death by her father, David LaCour, and grandparents, Elaine and David Ashlock.

A GoFundMe has been started to help with funeral expenses.

    No words I can say right now will take away the pain within your hearts. Loni was a breathe of sunshine she had this laughter that I will never forget. The heavens above gain a special angel and her daddy was there to hold her and welcome her home. I hope GOD lifts you up in his spirits and brings strengths out in you all that you never knew you had. My heart and prayers are with you. RIP sweet girl
