Lori A. Isaman, of Hornell

HORNELL / ARKPORT-Lori A. Isaman, 50, of 21 West Genesee St., Hornell, passed away Thursday evening (June 24, 2021) at her home following a lifelong battle with diabetes.

Born in North Hornell on June 11, 1971, she was the daughter of Kenneth & Sheryl (Chace) Isaman.

Lori grew up in Arkport and was a graduate of Arkport Central School (class of 1989). She later attended Alfred State College (SUNY Alfred).

For many years, Lori was employed at several area banks, including Five Star Bank, Community Bank, and Maple City Savings. She thoroughly enjoyed her banking career and interacting with the customers while working as a teller & customer service representative. She was known for her beautiful smile at the drive-thru window, and she loved nothing more than helping serve the customers of her local community.

Lori loved cats, and she loved gardening around her house. She was always eager to help anyone who needed anything. Her family and friends always said she was known to “give the shirt off her back” if anyone needed it. Her sense of humor and kindness for others exuded in her interactions with them, and she truly enjoyed people.

She was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth “Ken” Isaman, who died in 2017.

Lori is survived by her son, Logan Isaman of Hornell; her mother, Sheryl Isaman of Arkport; her brother, Jeffrey (Jennifer) Isaman of Winston-Salem, NC; her sister, Stephanie Isaman of Arkport; her niece, Allison Mansell; 2 nephews, Ethan Isaman and Lucas Isaman; several aunts, uncles & cousins.

At Lori’s request, there will be no calling hours. A private Memorial Service will be held at the family’s convenience, with Deacon Robert McCormick officiating.

Funeral arrangements are in the care of the Dagon Funeral Home, 38 Church St., Hornell, NY.

Lori’s family would like to express their deep gratitude to all of the Emergency Medical Personnel who came to her rescue throughout the years as her diabetes worsened. These local “Super Heroes” saved her life many times. The Isaman family will never forget how wonderful and professional they were each and every time they came to Lori’s assistance.

The Isaman family request that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Lori’s name be made to the Hornell Area Humane Society Animal Shelter, 7649 Industrial Park Road, Hornell, NY 14843.
