Lora had a fun loving attitude, always smiling. She demonstrated positivity and optimism daily and touched the souls of everyone she encountered. Lora was a radiant light of sunshine and has never met a stranger. She was a school teacher for many years while living in New Jersey, where she loved and had positive impact with all of her students and coworkers. Lora moved back to Georgia where she worked in food services and continued to be a light for everyone she served and worked with at Georgia Regional Hospital. Lora will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
