Loral Mae was born in Onaga, Kansas, on Feb. 9, 1928. She was educated in a one-room school house and went on to prepare as a registered nurse, a career she practiced and loved for all of her life.
An active life filled her days. She water- and cross country skied, bowled, danced, played bridge and golfed, often in the company of her husband, Kenny. Golf was so much a part of her life, two of her homes sat on golf courses. She was always competitive and enjoyed it all. In her retirement years, Loral wrote an autobiographical book about her family entitled, "Reflections of Loral."
She was encouraging to her children and grandchildren, supporting them in their pursuits. As a wife, mother and grandmother, she will be greatly missed.
