Lora was a great cook, baker and candy maker. She was the type who measured with a tad, apinch and you’ll know by how it looks and everything was delicious. There was always roomfor one more plate on the table and if anyone ever left hungry is was their own fault.
She loved watching baseball either at the stadium or on TV and the Cleveland Indians were her all-time favorites, win or lose. While she still had her sight, Lora was an avid reader but her favorite book was the Bible and she knew it well.
She had worked at Rubbermaid in the Finishing Dept. for 25 years. After retiring she and her husband Byron moved to FL. Upon returning from FL they lived in Wooster until their passing. At Lora’s request her body was donated to the North East Medical College.
