Nora Lee was best known for her quick wit and giving heart. After the death of her father, Nora Lee and her siblings moved to the Junior Order Home in Tiffin, OH and later in Lexington, NC where she gained life-long friends and memories. After graduation, Nora Lee went to work at Sears Mail Order as a secretary and retired after forty-years. Following her retirement, she continued to be active working at the Disney Store for eight years and at the Gap Kids. She was also a talented wedding caterer and director as so many couples from Rehobeth United Methodist Church can attest to. She was also a longtime member at Rehobeth. She gave back to the children’s home by serving as the treasurer and subscriptions coordinator for The Junior Homekid, the newsletter published six times a year by the Junior Order Home.
