R Randy Finelli on Aug 22, 2021

I still think of Lori often. She was a very nice person. She was married to my cousin Dan. Here it is well over a year after her passing and I am at work. She popped into my mind while sitting here as she often does, and I am reading her obituary again. She is sorely missed, a major loss. As said by many here, she was a very nice lady.

I just heard about Dr. Finelli's passing. I was a patient of hers for many years and like so
many of the other tributes I found her to be friendly, attentive and efficient. My husband had Alzheimer's and he was also a patient and she was so kind to me when he went into a long term care facility and then passed. I remember her children's art work on her office wall ....it always made me smile when I saw it. My condolences to her family.

J Jo Ann Jablon on Jun 26, 2020

I am so, so sad to learn this terrible news. Dr. Finelli treated me for years, always with compassion, efficiency and confidence. I trusted her and she always knew how to help. She will be terribly missed. My deepest sympathies to her family, friends, staff and fellow patients. I am grateful to have known her.

I was so saddened to hear of Lorries passing . She was the best. We always exchanged information about our kids and I know how proud she was of them and how she adored babysitting her grandson. May the wonderful memories you have of Lorrie sustain you through these difficult times.... She was so special , so passionate about her work, so caring and undoubtedly , a loving Mom and Wife.

L Leigh Cochrane on May 27, 2020

Dan, I was very saddened to hear of Lorries passing. Even though we weren’t in Naples at the same time very often, I always looked forward to seeing her beautiful smiling face, and our chats on the stairs and in the condo. She was always cheerful, kind, a bundle of energy. She always took the time to find out how I was doing including my health. I always looked forward to when our paths crossed. I send you and your family my sincerest sympathy for the loss of your wonderful, beautiful, and inspiring wife, Lorrie.
With prayers, Leigh Cochrane

D DONNA on May 17, 2020

I am so very saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Finelli.. I was one of the pharmaceutical reps who called on her for the past 25 years. She was always a pleasure to see, always smiling and always called me "tuts" . I always enjoyed going to the office to see her and her wonderful staff. You will be truly missed.

G Gillian Mayer on Apr 30, 2020

CandleDear Family of Dr. Finelli, We were very sorry to hear that our best ever Dermatologist has left our earth for a heavenly life.

God Bless you all as you live on with her outstanding legacy. Affectionately Patrick and Gillian Mayer

E Elizabeth Taglianetti on Apr 29, 2020

So very sorry for your loss I will never find another doctor like her she found my melanoma and even called me at work. My last visit we discussed our grandchildren and shared pictures, she was kind,witty and compassionate. The world will be a little colder without her and I will keep your family in my prayers.

S Susan Baron on Apr 28, 2020

Many of my family members had been patients of Dr. Finelli for quite a number of years. We were so sad when she left the practice in October, but had no idea of the reason. She had a heart of gold and always made you feel safe and cared for.
Her smile could brighten your darkest day.
Our hearts are broken to hear of her passing and we want to extend our sincerest condolences to her family. Love from the Campbell and Baron family.

A Anita Maddonni on Apr 26, 2020

I have been a patient since the 80's.I was looking for a dermatologist and her sister Dr. Joan Gable told me to see her. Lorrie's personality lit up the room when she walked in. She was caring and extremely kind. You could tell by the way she treated you that she loved her work. My sincerest condolences to the family. I hope that her loves shines down on you everyday. God Bless.

R Ryan Cosden on Apr 20, 2020

Barbara Kotzin

I was fortunate to have had an appointment with Dr. Finelli shortly before she closed her office. She was the only dermatologist I ever used, and I appreciated her no-nonsense approach, candor and expertise. She always greeted me with a smile and a "Hiya, Toots". We'd discuss the reason for my visit, and she'd open her magic drawer which was filled with a gazillion tubes of various creams, etc. She'd pick out what she wanted me to have, explain how to mix everything together, and put it all in a plastic baggie. When I asked how much to use, her standard reply was "A little dab'll do ya." We laughed about that Brill Cream ad many times. She was a special person and I was privileged to have known her. She will be sorely missed.

S Sandy Pflanz on Apr 16, 2020

Oh how Ioved Dr. Finelli! She had such grace and poise...ever knowledgeable. But better than her doctoring skills was her personal touch. I was a patient of hers for 20 years. We grew so close that when she heard I had been laid off from my job, she not only took care of me non-grata but she offered me a job in her office until I found something else. She was a tremendous blessing! How I used to love seeing her face glow when she showed me the newest picture her children had drawn...and lately, how handsome her Bryce was. She's in my prayers as are all of her family. God bless you all!
Sandy Pflanz

R Ruth Z Deming on Apr 16, 2020

I was shocked to learn Dr Finelli had passed away. She was a no-nonsense woman who answered every question I had about the bumps that appeared on my skin. I'll always remember the great advice she gave me. RIP great lady!!!

W Warren Swain on Apr 14, 2020

God bless Dr finely and her family. As a patient of her since 1996 she always was friendly and professional. I always remember talking with about her an my family and especially loved her daughters art work in hr office.

We love you and we will miss you dearly. God has a new Angel in his circle and she will be forever looking down on us.
God Bless!

B Brian F. on Apr 13, 2020

Years ago, I was referred to Dr. Finelli by a college classmate and longtime friend of hers. My initial impression was that Dr. Finelli was caring, thorough and highly competent (and a really stylish dresser). She didn't disappoint! During one long stretch (7 years), I had no health insurance after leaving my full time job to become the primary caregiver for my mom. I wasn't sure if I could afford to continue to get my necessary annual checkups (and more) during this difficult time. Dr. Finelli assured me it was not an issue and simply charged me the same copay amount as if I still had my health insurance. This was a significant reduction to the actual bill and clearly a financial loss for her practice. Her kind gesture speaks volumes about her character and generosity. And by the way, she ALWAYS inquired about my mom's health and wellbeing and offered sincere sympathy when my mom died. I am forever grateful! Dr. Finelli's death is a loss for so many: her loving family, her loyal staff, her dear friends and her many grateful patients. She will be missed.

S Susan Budman on Apr 13, 2020

I was a patient of Dr Finelli. She was professional and a very good doctor. I’m so sorry for your loss. She will be missed.

M Mary Daly on Apr 13, 2020

Dennis and I are deeply saddened by the death of your beloved Lorrie. She was sweet and kind, and I always enjoyed catcing up with her as we walked to our cars from mass. We could cover lots of family news together. We grieve with you. May the angels lead her into paradise. May she rest in peace. with our love and prayers. Mary Daly

K Kathy Schlesinger on Apr 13, 2020

Please know Bob, Michael, Andrew, and I are thinking of our dear friend and role model Lorrie, and wish we could just wrap our arms around you. Have faith, stay strong. Love you forever, Kathy Schlesinger

T Terry kathrins on Apr 13, 2020

We were devastated to hear of dr. Finelli’s passing. She was always so patient and very informatable We took our son to her when he was 15. He had horrible acne and no self confidence. She told him she’d have him looking like new. And she was right!! By the end of the 5 month treatment he was as good as new with plenty of self confidence!!! She will be truly missed💔 John & Terry Kathrins

B Bonnie Ritterman on Apr 13, 2020

D Dave Danyluk on Apr 13, 2020

Very sorry to hear and my sincere condolences to the entire family. My family and I went to her for many many years. We would discuss kids and family and I kept going to her even when my health insurance was not covered by her practice anymore. She worked with me on payment and patiently answered my many questions for my daughter who followed her into the Dr. profession. I wish I had the chance to formally say my goodbyes to her. Dave Danyluk...

J Jim and Peggy McHugh on Apr 13, 2020

Our sincere condolences to the Finelli and Gable families.

L Linda-Jean Schneider on Apr 13, 2020

My husband and I send our condolences to Dr. Finelli's family, as this must be the most difficult of times.

SO sorry to hear of your loss. The Finelli and Gable families are in our prayers.

J Jennifer McHugh Barker on Apr 13, 2020

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked for Lori for a short time many years ago when I was in college and she was just getting her office started. She had two beautiful children that I would also occasionally babysit for. Lori was so generous and kind. One of my favorite memories was her sitting on the floor of her office, waiting for the next patient (it was truly the very early years), giving me advice while I manned the desk and did the filing. I also got to witness her interactions with the patients and the kindness she showed to them. Thank you, Lori, for those years of mentorship and positive influence.
May the sounds of the faithful departed rest in peace, Amen.
Jennifer McHugh, MD

D Dave Rhoads on Apr 13, 2020

Ben, Nicole and Dan. I am heartbroken to hear this news. It has been many years, but all the great memories we had together are clear as day. Dr. Finelli was such a strong a caring person and I am blessed to have been a part of her and your lives.

I saw Dr finelli for approx. 12 years and in that time I grew to love her as a great and knowledgeable Dr and also a good friend who always gave you that extra 5 minutes to tell her how you were doing in life and share her own experiences with you as well.

Her grace, smile and genuine concern for all were a treasure to be cherished. We will dearly miss her radiant spirit. We send love e and blessings to her children and family.

B Barbara Cunningham on Apr 12, 2020

My mother and I were patients of Dr Finelli's for over 20 years. I am so sad to hear of her passing. I was so worried when I received the letter she abruptly closed her office. She always had a smile and warm welcome as she entered the exam room. Wish I had known she too was a CD graduate. The world is now missing a wonderful Doctor and all around good person too soon. I offer my deepest sympathy to the family she loved so dearly; her friends and her nice office staff.

C Craig Garretson on Apr 12, 2020

I was saddened to learn of Dr. Finelli’s passing. She treated a variety of my skin conditions for over 15 years. We developed a common bond as our children attended Germantown Academy, our daughter’s gave birth around the same time and we both loved the game of golf. Dr. Finelli was the consummate professional, but always found time to ask me about my family. I’m sure she touched many of her clients in the same way. She will be missed. Our sympathy is extended to her entire family.

Craig and Gina Garretson

I am so shocked and saddened by this news. She was the only dermatologist I ever went to and I adored her. She was so real, so gentle, so professional. She always glowingly talked about her children and still had their childhood art in her office. She was thrilled about her grandson. I'm thinking not only of her family but the wonderful staff she had. Fondly, Denise Buchanan

M Maria on Apr 11, 2020

I knew Lori most of my life. She was the most wonderful, amazing and fun loving person. She was such a great friend to my sister, with whom she went from Kindergarten to grade 12. They may have gone their separate ways for college but retained their friendship. She was so good to my family and Vicki. She was always there for Vicki since 2014 and all the way to the end of Vicki’s life. Little did we know that Lori was also not well. To her entire family I wish you peace and love at this difficult time. Maria Fella Cain.

B Betsy McNally on Apr 11, 2020

I am so very sad to hear of my old teammate's passing. I played b-ball with Lorie all through high school. There are people who you have shared experiences with that will remain in your soul forever. My memories are of only laughter, friendship, honesty, competition and the common bond of complaining about staying late to shoot foul shots. It was always a contest between us on who would have to stay longer. Our 4 years together were magical.
I am heartened to know that the teenager I always knew would shine a bright light on this world did just that. My prayers and sincere condolences to your family during this most difficult time. R.I.P. Lori ❤

C Cindy Fisher on Apr 11, 2020

I was a patient of Dr. Finelli's for the past 12 years. I was always so impressed with her as a doctor; her knowledge, her professionalism, and most of all her compassion. I used to love looking at all of her children's artwork from years gone by that Dr. Finelli had framed and hung in all of her exam rooms. You could feel what a proud Mom she was. I truly miss her and I will always remember her.

S Sr. Maureen McDermott aka Margie on Apr 11, 2020

M Mat & Ellen Yoesron on Apr 11, 2020

Dr. Finelli was one of my favorite doctors. She understood that a woman didn't want blotches on her body and not barnacles as she referred to them, then we would share a laugh. She was always kind and painless and always had time. I recently found out she had closed her practice and I was in despair as to who I could trust. My sympathies to her husband and family. My husband Mat and I just got a phone call from the Country Club that she had passed. It's a big family so news travels along. God Bless her and may she know she was loved and appreciated. Sorry this is happening during this pandemic. 🌹 Mat & Ellen Yoesron

Deepest sympathy

D Donna Sciubba on Apr 11, 2020

I have no words to say how sad I am to hear of Dr. Finelli’s passing. I have been a patient of hers for probably 20 years. After my first melanoma, she told me her and I “would be best friends.” Not the best friend I wanted, but the “best friend” I needed. She was always so on top of everything. Another two melanomas and she always made me feel at ease. I always loved coming to hear about her family and her golf game. She never made you feel rushed and always made you feel like her only patient. I always joked with her telling her she wasn’t allowed to retire. I am so sad that I didn’t get to see her before she closed her practice. Dr. Finelli was a true gem! My heart goes out to her family and staff who were also so kind. I am praying for all of you during this time. Rest In Peace Dr. Finelli. ❤️🙏🏻

I am sorry that you have lost a warm and wonderful person like Dr Finelli. I feel that those of us that knew her have also lost. I visited her office for many years back to when the art on the walls was much more recent. I will miss the compassionate way she treated me and my "barnacles." Rest in Peace.

B Beth Klenk on Apr 11, 2020

It hurt our hearts to hear of Dr, Fiinelli’s passing. We were patients of hers for many years. She was always caring and always took an extra minute to chat. I always loved the pictures her children drew when they were young decorating the walls. She was also a customer of ours, so we got to see her outside of the office. RIP, you will be missed by many.

Today I posted Dr. Finelli's obit on my FB page and wrote this: This obit just makes me weep today. Dr. Finelli was my dermatologist for many years. She exuded compassion and empathy. She was the consummate personal. About 6 months ago her office called and said the practice was closing as of that very day. I knew it was something serious but prayed it would be manageable. Clearly It was not. Godspeed to you, known only to me as Dr. Finelli. Embrace with your sweet tendencies the many souls who are joining you these days on the other side as you comforted me when Ron left so suddenly.

I was shocked and saddened to learn of your passing Lori. Dan was part of our anatomy section (F's) and you were one section over. I will always remember your sense of humor, selflessness, and smarts. A so called triple threat. You'll be terribly missed. My condolences to Dan and your kids, Joan, and the rest of your family.

B Bill and Carol Risko on Apr 11, 2020

Our family were not only patients of Dr. Finelli but thought of her as a dear friend. She was very attentive and helpful through some difficult health issues for us. She is a great loss to all. Bill and Carol Risko

Lorrie was my dermatologist for 20 years. She was a wonderful, warm, capable doctor. Due to recurring skin cancers I saw her multiple times each year so I really feel that I got to know her on a personal level and she in turn related to me in the same way. My husband and daughter were also her patients. We are so sorry to hear of her untimely passing. The world has lost a great person. Prayers go out to her family. She will be missed by so many.

C Cathy Baranich on Apr 11, 2020

We are so saddened to hear of Lori's passing. We have been patients of hers for 20 years and miss her. She was a wonderful, caring human being and doctor. When we had an appointment with Dr. Lori, we felt like we were visiting with a friend. Our sincere condolences to Lori's family.

I was referred to Lorrie(by her sister)many years ago when my husband was recovering from a very serious accident. She was so kind and immediately diagnosed his problem And made his recovery much more comfortable. My prayers for her families strength at this difficult time. Janet Paull

Dr. Finnelli, I am a complex skin cancer patient. I thank you for your thorough exams, and calling me at home at night to share some bad news. I appreciate your direct professional approach, with human kindness. I was so confident in your care.
I loved the kids art work. You will be greatly missed!

L Lorre Nolen on Apr 10, 2020

My condolences to the family. We went to St. Joes and then CD. We played on the basketball team together. Her smile is the same. Great role model and person. She can now talk hoops with our coach from CD Barb.

K Kathy Clark kelley on Apr 10, 2020

Lorrie was one of the kindest, true and loyal of friends. She was a tough chick and a role model for women. I loved that her artwork in her office was her kid’s drawings—-that said a lot about her as a proud mother. My family and I will forever miss her. Thank you Lorrie for taking care of us. Our prayers are with her family.

C Cheryl Snoha on Apr 9, 2020

Dr. Finelli has treated myself and my children for over 15 years. She was simply the BEST. She was caring and smart and so knowledgeable and just about the best doctor I've ever had contact with. She was always proud of her family and always remembered mine whenever I saw her. Normally taking kids to a doctor is a chore but when they'd ask who we were seeing -- as soon as I said it was Dr. Finelli -- everything was great because they loved her! She will truly be missed and our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this very sad time.

Infamous powder fight

L Laurie Mann on Apr 9, 2020

God speed my dear friend. The beautiful memories will sustain us all. You were such a character. All of us that played with you will never forget how you cheered for yourself when you made a foul shot. Free throws may have not been your strong point but I wouldn't put anybody other than you at mid court during a full court press. 9 out of 10 times you read it and stole the ball. As Mary Beth wrote, your oatmeal facials, eating dried fruit before it was even popular, the infamous powder fight in Lourdes, etc. Your smile and presence would light up the room. The world is now a little less bright. "May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest". You are now at peace my special friend
