Lori was born on January 16, 1956, in Davenport, daughter of Max E. and Rosabelle (Meincke) Linville.
Lori had a passion for dance; she started taking lessons when she was five. She realized a dream when she became the owner of that same studio she took her first lessons in, Rae Dance Studio in Davenport. She taught lessons with a zest for jazz and tap dancing. Lori closed the studio in 1995.
She also enjoyed her work at Kitchens, where she was the gourmet food and coffee buyer, retiring in 2009.
Lori's passions were her family, baking with her grandchildren, and Walt Disney World trips to Florida.
Lori is survived by her daughters: Dominique (Emmanuel) Nuci, Davenport and Tory (Jason) Reyes, Bettendorf; grandchildren: Cruz and Nayeli Nuci and Michael, Raul "Coco", and Isabella; her brother, Gene (Mary Ann) Linville, Madison, Wisconsin, and her dear friends, Amy Hoeg, Noreen Bushma, and Lissa Entler.
