Lora took care of her family as a homemaker. She raised chickens and sold many, many eggs. She canned fruits and vegetables from her garden. She enjoyed cooking and baking. Her angel food cake, Christmas candy, and various cookies were some of her family’s favorites, as were her pickles. She loved all sports, especially the Houston Astros and the Texans. Also, she loved playing cards and dominoes and playing bingo with her friends at High Hope Care Center. The highlight of her many days was when her grandchildren visited, especially the little guys Mason and Zephen.
