Lora Loree Hook was born March 18, 1926 to the late W. O. and Beulah Hook of the Smith Springs Community in Erath County.

Loree worked in the community as a sales clerk for a number of years and cared for her four children. She met and married Carlos H. Ford in 1981. She lovingly embraced his large family of six grown children, their spouses and their children. Carlos passed away in 2002. Loree was a lifelong member of Graham Street Church of Christ and also attended Johnsville Church of Christ. Loree was a beautiful and loving woman who will be greatly missed.

Loree is survived by one daughter, Linda Derrick and her spouse Mary; one son, Mark Derrick; two grandsons, Cody Derrick and wife Crystal, Monty Derrick and wife Jeanette; and granddaughter, Shannon Revell Hise. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, and great grandchildren as well as numerous other loved ones.

She was preceded in death by her two husbands, Dewey and Carlos; two children, Ronda and Ronald; three siblings, Warren, Lois, and Marie and their spouses; one stepson, Carl; and a “bunch” of lifelong friends.

A memorial donation may be made in Loree’s honor to Foster’s Home for Children or the Erath County Humane Society.
