Lora was the daughter of Earl Runion and Jessie Green. 
Her father was the choir leader at Holston Creek Baptist Church. She often told of the long walk from their house to church when he would walk with her every week for her piano lessons. Lora told me of a time when the minister's family invited them to dinner and served rice. It was the very first time she had ever seen or tasted it and she had loved it ever since. Lora's family was a close and happy one.
Lora was a church musician and taught piano, organ, guitar and banjo. She delighted in simple things such as wild flowers, sea shells and the puppies she fed at the back door.
She taught me how to play piano and how to listen.
