Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 6, 1928
Death: Nov. 15, 2006

LORRAINE E. (LORI) CARR began eternal life with her Lord on Wednesday, November 15, 2006. Lori was born May 6, 1928, in Chicago, Illinois, first born daughter of Charles W. and Ethel McCormick Coakley. She grew up in Lemont, Illinois, and lived in the towns of Lemont and Lockport until her move to Texas in 1972 to take a position at the Conroe Courier. She later became publisher of the Tomball Sun. In addition to her newspaper career, Lori served as a member, then director, of the Tomball Chamber of Commerce. At the age of 49, Lori returned to school at Conroe School of Vocational Nurses and began her second, most fulfilling career as a licensed vocational nurse. She worked in the Skilled Nursing Center at Tomball Regional Hospital from 1989 until her retirement in 2002. Lori was a 50-year member and past matron of the Order of the Eastern Star. She was met in Heaven by her beloved son, Corporal Paul H. Stein, Jr., 101st Airborne paratrooper killed in Viet Nam, and her loving husband, John D. (Jack) Carr. Her memory is cherished by two surviving children, Kay L. (Gerald) Rothlisberger and Richard C. (Carolyn) Stein; stepson David (Sharon) Carr; two grandchildren, Christopher Brandon and Jessica Lori Stein; and two beloved sisters, Alice J. Bixby and Lillian J. (Gilbert) Helbig along with a loving extended family of nieces and nephews. There will be a celebration of Lori's life for her friends following a private family farewell in early December. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Lori's honor to the American Cancer Society.
