Lora’s love for God and her family was very strong. Being with her family was the most important thing to her and much of what made her life beautiful. Lora loved being a part of her children’s lives. One of the greatest joys in her life was working for her two daughters to help grow their businesses. Lora touched the lives of many and made friends wherever she went. She had a great love for her work as a drug and alcohol abuse counselor with the Palmer Drug Abuse Program in Houston, TX. She had her own private practice for a while and also counseled in halfway houses and in prisons, always directing her clients to the Lord as their source of strength to change their lives. During her own journey of 38 years of sobriety, Lora found peace in writing gratitude letters to God.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated privately by family and close friends of Lora at 10:00 a.m., Friday, October 9, 2020 at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, 1801 Sage Road in Houston, Texas. A visitation with the family will begin at 9:00 a.m.
Lora will then be laid to rest at Big Cane Baptist Church cemetery in Morrow, Louisiana.
Honored to serve as Pallbearers are Christopher Mark St. Cyr, Jacqueline Hope St. Cyr, Randall John St. Cyr, Brian Mathew St. Cyr, Michelle Lyndsey St. Cyr, and Ryan Joseph St. Cyr.
