Lora Elena Lemley Anderson, a resident of the Cavin Fork of Pond Creek, Belleville, passed away in her sleep Sunday Morning, July 18, at the home of her nephew in Ravenswood. She was born Nov. 3, 1913, in Hominy Falls, Nicholas County, WVa., the eldest daughter of Charles Marion and Bertha Kate Kester Lemley. Lora married William Hugh Anderson, Oct. 13, 1936. They lived, reared their children, and farmed the Cavin Fork farm, that they held so dear to their hearts. She was a member of the Temperance Methodist Church, and more recently, the Pond Creek Baptist Church. Lora and Hugh were charter members of the Pond Creek Volunteer Fire Department. She will always be remembered as 'The Pie Lady' for the hundreds of pies that she made during her lifetime for the fire departement fundraisers. She was chosen as the Grand Prize Winner by the Parkersburg News and Marietta A.M. Cookbook for her 'Quaker Oatmeal Pecan Pie'. She was also active in the Wood County Homemakers and was at one time a member of the 'Belles of Belleville'. Her nieces and nephews will forever cherish the memories that Aunt Lora and Uncle Hugh provided when they visited the Cavin Fork Farm. She is survived by four grandchildren, Diane Anderson, Susan A. Longoria, Joseph Anderson Jr., and Brian Anderson, five great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildrn, and many nieces and nephews who loved her and will miss her dearly. Lora was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Hugh, their children, infant Ellen Diane, Karen Kate, and Joseph Hugh Anderson Sr. her parents, brothers, infant Charles Lemley, Darrell Lemley, Lowell Lemley, and Lawrence Whitman, and sisters, Maxine Lemley and Aneth L Sellers.

Lester Morgan will be officiating. Donations may be made to either the Pond Creek Baptist Church or the Pond Creek Volunteer Fire Department.
