Lori Linker passed away on June 26th.  She was 63.

After a successful career in entertainment marketing in New York City, Lori moved back to Louisville and brought her knowledge of marketing, sports and internet savvy to various local businesses.  She most recently worked at Caption Call, helping those with hearing loss stay in touch with their loved ones.

But throughout her career, Yoga was her constant. Teaching Yoga at Hot Yoga Louisville for over 20 years, her Sunday morning, 10 a.m. class, was a much-needed option for the 50+ regular students who embraced her poses and her well, thought out playlists.

Lori spent the last many years caring for her mother, Marjorie, who passed away on November 3, 2021.

We will miss her spirit, her love, her light and the type of deep kindness for others, that nobody could ever emulate. And we hope she’s wearing that perfect little black dress we all always search to find.  Lori is survived by her sisters, Jan Youtie (Bill) of Atlanta, GA and Shari Linker (Rob Commando) of Sea Cliff, NY and her nieces and nephew, Alana (26), Jamie (24) and Kyle Commando (21).
