Rochester: July 24, 2016. Survived by her sister, Lorraine Van Dine, aunt, Evelyn Shoots, sister-in-law, Blanche Lewis, and numerous cousins. Lori was a graduate of Heidelberg University with a year abroad in Germany, and was a beloved ESOL teacher in the Rush-Henrietta school system. ESOL classes brought together adult students from all over the globe, and Lori made them feel more comfortable in America. Lori was the fourth child of E. Dow Van Dine and Lorena Van Dine Roberts. She attended Charlotte High, North Miami High, the very old East High (her favorite) and Irondequoit High (from which she graduated). For a time, Lori and her then husband, Lucian Coates Wells, rehabbed houses in the South Wedge. She loved birds, dogs, cats, and enjoyed gardening, sewing and crocheting.
A Funeral Service will be held Saturday at 9:30AM from the Richard H. Keenan Funeral Home (Egypt location), 7501 Pittsford Palmyra Rd., Fairport. Interment will follow at White Haven Memorial Park. There are no calling hours.
