Lori Frese, 52, owner of Skyscraper Tours in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, passed away at her home Monday, March 27, 2017, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Lori Frese’s grandfather and grandmother owned and operated several businesses, one being Skyscraper Tours. At the time his building was the city’s only “skyscraper”. His advertising became his slogan on television, “. . . come see us in Sherwood’s only skyscraper -TWO stories tall!”
Lori took over running the business in 1994 and dedicated the company to the new ‘Internet’.
A brilliant businesswoman, she became one of the top-producing cruise travel agents in the country.
The Skyscraper Tours website states, “In 2017, Lori Frese passed away unexpectedly. It was a huge loss to Skyscraper Tours, but her husband and business partner, Jacob Frese, and the dedicated Skyscraper Tours team, continue to strive to provide the exceptional service that Lori infused in every aspect of the business she inherited from her late grandfather.”
