Lora Lee Carpenter was born on Jan. 27, 1963, in Roswell, to Harold Krantz and Dorthy Miles Krantz. Lora graduated from Roswell High School in 1981. She married Ross Carpenter on Nov.13, 1988.
She and Ross spent their life together ranching on the LA ranch east of Roswell, as well as running Carpenter Custom Hauling. Lora was an amazing wife, mother, friend and mamaw. She was an all-around good hand, tending to whatever was needed of her on the ranch, as well as in the home.
Lora was the type of person who lit up the room with her charismatic, fun-loving personality. She left us so unexpectedly, but she will be truly missed but never forgotten by her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her mother in 1989.
She is survived by her husband, of the family home; her father; one brother, Greg Krantz (Peggy); sons: Ben Grey (Berlinda) and Jake (Kassi); and daughter Katie (Jeremy); as well as her grandchildren: Karli and Keylee; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
