Lori Saunders (born Linda Marie Hines on October 4, 1941 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American film and television actress, probably best known for her role as Bobbie Jo Bradley in the television series Petticoat Junction (1965–1970), appearing in 147 episodes. She also appeared as Betty Gordon, one of Mr. Drysdale's secretaries in the last season of The Beverly Hillbillies.

She appeared in numerous small roles in film and television from her debut in 1960 until her retirement from acting in 1980. In addition to Petticoat Junction, she was a regular cast member on Dusty's Trail, a mid-1970s comedy television series starring Bob Denver. She appeared in the cult horror film Blood Bath (1966), credited as Linda Saunders. Because there was another "Linda" (Linda Kaye Henning) credited on Petticoat Junction, Saunders officially changed her first name to "Lori" in the fall of 1965. Other films include: A Day at the White House (1972), Captive (1980), The Girls on The Beach, (1965) and Mara of the Wilderness (1965, as Linda Saunders) with Adam West.[1]

In her early television years, Saunders appeared five times as four different characters on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as well as single-episode appearances in Rawhide (Season four, 'The Prairie Elephant', Original airdate November 17, 1961), Burke's Law, Daniel Boone (in 1970 episode of "Bringing Up Josh"), and Bob Hope Presents The Chrysler Theatre.
