Lori was born July 1, 1961 in Lima to Byron and Vellezetta (Zeta) (Allman) Holtzapple, who preceded her in death. On July 22, 1983, she married Jeff Riley, who survives her in Lakeview.

Lori was a 1979 graduate of Elida High School and worked as a server at Ike’s for over 30 years and a lunch lady at Apollo for over 20 years. She was a member of Wayne-Goshen Community Church of the Nazarene and she was a wonderful cook. Lori loved walking her dogs, sipping American Honey and going on mini road trips with her “favorite daughter”. She loved people and life; she never knew a stranger.
