Obituary for Lora "Lori Flory" Norris

Lora Lei Norris (Lori Flory) (Wise), 85, of Littleton, CO, passed away on September 9, 2023. She was born to parents Wick and Wanda Wise, on 12/19/1937 in Harrisburg, Illinois (Saline County).

She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and friends. Lora had an amazing talent playing piano by ear and found immense joy in sharing her music with others. Playing in various venues around the Littleton area, she will be remembered by many for the good times singing and laughing. She was a voracious reader loving mystery books and she enjoyed watching all sports. Her favorite teams were the Denver Broncos and her beloved Colorado Rockies.

Lora will be remembered and respected by all who knew her for her strong work ethic, the joy of her music, and infectious smile that lit up the room with love and laughter. She was fiercely loyal to those she loved and gave freely of herself to anyone in need. She had five children of her own but was “MOM” to many over the years.

Lora married Richard Flory and together they raised 5 children: Cindy, Karla, Kathy, Kristen and Michael.  Lora is survived by her four daughters and sons-in-law: Cindy (Bob), Karla (Greg), Kathy (Kenny), and Kristen (Levi). Lora is also survived by her grandchildren: Elly (Ced’Juan), Ben, Sam (Megan), Ashleigh, Jackson, Olivia, BriAnn, Shiloh (Corey (Lia)), Bethany, Kyleigh (Eli) and numerous other family members and friends who will miss her dearly.

She was preceded in death by Richard Flory, her son Michael, her parents, and her brother Roy.

The family has entrusted Ellis Family Services with the arrangements. A family memorial service at Abiding Hope Church will be followed by A Celebration of Life for family and friends at the Columbine Bar and Restaurant on September 14th at 1:30 p.m. at 7660 S. Pierce St, Littleton CO.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, or the American Cancer Society.
