Loris Mae was a woman who spoke the truth, even when it was not always politically correct to do so. She was generous to a fault, giving to many charitable organizations throughout her life. She loved gardening, knitting, reading the newspaper daily, watching Jeopardy and reruns of Lawrence Welk. She held a special spot in her heart for all the many family dogs though the years. Her friends and family will miss her unique personality, she lived life on her terms and never forgot her roots. We will miss you sweet lady.
