Joseph, Lora’s beloved husband of more than 66 years, preceded her in death on June 13, 2004. She loved being at home and taking care of her family. Being a loving wife and mother was her greatest joy. Lora was a member of the Sutherland Springs Baptist Church, where she enjoyed teaching Sunday school for many faithful years. Lora loved to work in her yard, and enjoyed sewing and cooking. Later, as the grandchildren and great-grandchildren came along, her favorite pastime was spending long hours playing, reading, singing, hugging, and loving them. The family extends great appreciation to Marina Garza for years of caretaking and to Dr. Currier and the staff at Nurses In Touch.
