On Dec. 20, 1957, she married Dwayne R. Boor at the Diehl's Crossroad Church of the Brethren near Curryville, Pa.

Lenora was a 1957 graduate of Morrison Cove High School, Martinsburg, Pa. She worked for 15 years at SKF Industries in Altoona, Pa., and started her own antiques business in 1988 after moving to Richmond.
While living in the Cove, Lenora and her family were members of the Memorial Church of the Brethren, Martinsburg. After moving to Richmond, Va., she and her husband joined the Methodist Church on Forest Avenue.
Lenora was a smiling and adventurous spirit always open to any activity offered by her family. She loved boating, camping, antiquing and travel, of which there was plenty. She was fond of sunbathing by the pool and visits to the beach, volunteering with local museums, and inspiring others with her love and knowledge of history and collecting. She was adored by her grandchildren.
