Lora Lee Freed went home to be with her Savior on Monday, Feb. 16, 2009.
Lora was born in Kingman on Aug. 26, 1949, to parents Thomas and Mona Cochran. Lora was the oldest of nine children and graduated from Mohave County Union High School in 1967.
Lora was preceded in death by her mother and father, Mona and Thomas Cochran; her husband, Joel Freed; and her daughter, Krista Jo-Anne Dix. Lora is survived by her daughters, Misty and Nicole Freed; her son, Joel Freed II; daughter-in-law, Amber Freed; grandson, Joel Freed III; brother and sister-in-law, Tom and Chris Cochran; brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Deni Cochran; sister, Sue Stallard; sisters, Julie, Terri and Pam Cochran; brother and sister-in-law, Ric and Deanne Cochran; and brother, Keith Cochran. There are also many nieces, nephews, cousins and close family friends.
Lora loved spending time with her husband, children, grandson, brothers and sisters. With such a large family, she always found time to share a story with all of them.
If asked, Lora would say her job was homemaker/stay-at-home mom, but after her children were in school, Lora went to work at the Mohave Museum of History and Arts as a librarian. Lora was described by one of her friends as a "Vocal Historian." With an amazing memory for stories, facts and where to find information, Lora was a great asset to the museum. For many years Lora was also a board member at Kingman Regional Medical Center. Lora cared greatly for the employees of Kingman Regional.
A memorial service will be held for Lora Lee Freed at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, at St. John's United Methodist Church. Food and drinks will follow in the fellowship hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to KRMC Hospice or the Mohave Museum of History and Arts.
