Lenore spent her life caring for her family and community. She was a leader in the Atlanta branch of the League of Women Voters, a team leader for the DeKalb County Georgia United Way, a volunteer in the DeKalb County school system specializing in vision and hearing screening, and an active member of various garden clubs. Her prize-winning flower arrangements were a source of pride and beauty. She was a voracious reader, and joined book clubs wherever she lived.
Lenore was born in Atlanta, Ga., and lived in the Atlanta area for over 60 years, when she and her husband moved to the Florida Panhandle to be nearer their family. She attended Girls' High in Atlanta, and the University of Georgia.
