First and foremost, Lorese was a dedicated wife and homemaker. For many years, she also worked as cafeteria manager of Atkinson High School and retired as manager of Malpass Corner School Cafeteria. Lorese continued working at Pender Adult Services in Burgaw for the next ten years. It is noted that she was one fabulous Southern cook. Lorese loved her family and showed it in so many ways by her kindness, sharing and generosity. She loved her Moores Creek Baptist Church family that she has been an integral part of for many years. Lorese had a gentle smile, sweet sweet spirit and a steadfast faith in her Lord that was evidenced in her daily life. Her family is grateful for all blessings, prayers and kindness shown to them during Lorese’s illness and passing. May the Lord bless you all now and always.
