Lore was born May 8, 1919 to Jimmy Lee and Rosie Lee (Webb) Tate in Amory, Mississippi. A constant caregiver for family and friends, Lore always put others above herself.

She is survived by sons, Harold Kattner and wife, Linda, and Gary Kattner and wife, Susan; 12 grandchildren; 28 great grandchildren; and 6 great-great grandchildren.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the wonderful staff at Interim Healthcare and Hospice of Temple, Texas – especially Stacey.

A time of viewing and visitation will be held with the family from 6-8 pm Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
