  • T Guy Cook With a heavy heart I am sorry to lose a friend I never met Lori had been my credit rep since I started my original business forever ago and our journey together has been truly enjoyable. An always friendly voice to answer my calls an always ensued into an enjoyable chat almost never about business. Heck most times I think we spoke more about dogs, and weather and so forth. Our personalities seemed to mesh well, and I surely will miss my friend It was my pleasure to have known Lori God Bless T. Guy Cook
  • Mark McCormick I have known Lori for more than 25 years. We worked together for about 15 of those years. Lori was a special person for so many reasons, but listing them all would crash this website. Although she was amazing at her job, life was so much more than that for her. She really cared deeply about people. (Especially her daughters) She helped me in ways that she may never have known. For many years Lori was like a big sister to me. Constantly, softly, trying to give me tips on how to improve as a person while always coming from a place of love. Her message took time to resonate, but over time she would be very happy to know, I listened and learned. I have faith that God has already accepted Lori into Heaven and placed her back with her beloved Kenton. Thinking about Lori and Kenton being back together is what gives me peace. Lori touched so many lives and everyone that came across her path is better for it. Love, Mark
  • Jeff Barber I have never met Lori, but we talked for many years via email and phone about our account. Lori was one of the kindest people I have worked with in my 20 years in the mortgage industry. She was always available to answer questions, no matter what time of day you contacted her including on Super Bowl Sunday. She always asked how the weather was in PA and wanted to know what I was doing for the holidays. It’s so hard to believe that she is no longer with us. The world lost a very kind and loving person and heaven gained a new angel. May God bless Lori’s family during this very difficult time. Our deepest condolences from our firm, Lehigh Financial Group and myself.

  • Donna Alison Lori Bennett - I never saw your smile, but I heard it... every time we spoke, every time you helped me with a problem! Your smiles will surely be missed here in Northridge, CA. I will keep you in my heart.
  • CHARLES HINKLE I never had the privilege of meeting Lori in person but can honestly say that I believe she was my credit rep since the inception of my business 20+ years ago and I would have followed her wherever she went. Very nice and always helpful and considerate to work with- I'm sure she was just that same way and then some with her kids, grand kids, co-workers and friends. My deepest sympathy goes out to all who knew Lori- she will be missed dearly. It was an honor to get to work with her all of these years,
  • Sarah Johnston I never had the privilege to meet Lori in person but I had the wonderful pleasure of getting to know her over the phone. She was my account rep at CIS. I have a bad habit of locking myself out of my account often and no matter how many times I contacted her she would just laugh and help me get back in. She was a kind spirit and I'll miss talking and emailing with her.
  • Scott Webber Wow, so sad to hear of Loris passing. Though I didn't know Lori on a personal level, she was outstanding in her professional life. Never had any doubt Lori would be on top of everything I needed. Very responsive , friendly and a joy to work with. My prayers go out to her family during this difficult time.
  • James Well what I can say about Lori Bennett, she exuded warmth and gratitude no matter what even through her own struggles. I had the privilege of meeting her almost 25 years ago and she would be one of those that would say “HI” in such a genuine manner that it made you feel warm inside. Some people have that gift naturally. I always wanted to do my best for her because she was giving her best for me/us/mortgage credit. She would tell me she loved the Mortgage Credit world and the opportunity that was given to her some 25 years ago. She was such a Star and if you had a problem she wanted to get it resolved for you as soon as possible. Most of all she truly loved her family especially her grandchildren. She will be missed by anyone who had the honor of meeting her, she has now graduated with the highest of honors and the Angels have formed a long receiving line sounding their trumpets welcoming her to Heaven – they have truly gained a GEM!

  • Dave McCormick Lori was an amazing person with a heart as big as a two-story house. No doubt she has already reconnected with Kenton, and they are planning a flower show in heaven. Lori was always so proud of her daughters. Lori you will be missed big-time!!! I have a very heavy heart realizing Lori has moved on. She was loved and respected by so many. She touched many lives with her kind and loving ways... Love, Dave...
