She was born June 10, 1935, to the late Jesse Allen & Lena Carson Stem, near Lavaca, Arkansas where she was raised and baptized as a young teenager into the First Baptist Church. She was a longtime member of Park Hill Baptist Church where she was renowned for her cooking, particularly her pie making skills. No matter the occasion, friends often requested a pie made by Lora.
