Lori Harrison Cline of Saint Johns, Florida departed this earth to be with her Heavenly Father on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 from complications of Frontal Temporal Degeneration. She was born in Gary, Indiana on October 17, 1955 but spent most of her life in the Southeast states of Florida, Georgia and Virginia.

Lori graduated from Saint Augustine High School and spent most of her working life in outside Sales with great personal success in the field of residential mortgage lending representing both national and regional lenders including, Chase Manhattan, Citigroup, NBank Mortgage and Dime Mortgage among others. She began her career in Sales with PMI Mortgage Insurance Co. of San Francisco then became the Client Liaison for Sellers Atkinson and Jose in Atlanta, GA a major law firm specializing in residential loan closings before becoming a Wholesale Loan Representative for the above listed Georgia based Lenders. She was the Co-founder and an elected officer of the Atlanta Chapter of the Association of Professional Mortgage Women, an organization designed to recognize and promote the success of women in the field of mortgage banking.

She won many awards in her career and gratitude from both her employers and customers. On the personal side, Lori loved to entertain with gourmet prepared meals and libations served at her home in Atlanta or weekend retreat at Lake Harding, AL. Her pride and joy came from co-designing and decorating her retirement home on scenic Lake Harding located between Columbus, GA to the south and Auburn, AL to the Northwest. Many happy times were held in this home and long lasting relationships formed. She loved boating on this lake and was often seen on her jetski and personal Craig Cat.

I am blessed with so many memories of fun times with my dear friend Lori. She was a light in my life and always provided positive encouragement. We worked on and off together at a few different mortgage gigs and certainly enjoyed our activities in GAMB, MBAG & AAPMW. It was an honor to know you on a professional basis.
But it was our times of cocktails and dinner together at the Smyrna house, one or two of our lake houses on Lanier and Lake Harding, our mountain home, your condo in Maui and HHI that were the highlights of our friendship! How we enjoyed each other's company! It is these many moments shared with you, Ronnie Lee & David that I will forever treasure and cherish. I started missing you these last few years due to your FTD. You drifted away but your voyage ended up being a swift one. For that, I am thankful. Until we meet again, as we surely will my dear friend, may God hold you in the palm of his hand. Oh and by the way, I'll keep my eye out on Ronnie Lee for you!

Lori brought joy to any occasion, she had a great sense of humor, was a terrific cook, host and had a loving and generous spirit. We shared many adventures over the last 40 years and I will miss her deeply. She was loved by many and I know she will live on in my heart. My deepest condolences to her family at this time.
