Lora Lee Youngblood

October 5, 1927 ~ July 19, 2020 (age 92)


Lora Lee Youngblood, age 92, of Long Beach, passed away Sunday, July 19, 2020.

Lora graduated from Pascagoula High School and worked for Mississippi Power, where she retired as an administrative assistant. After retirement, she became the secretary at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church. She loved dancing, traveling, and being a part of Accordion Krewe of Gemini. She also loved animals, specifically dogs and cats.

Our favorite memory of her was during the depression, she and her dad, Simon, would drive to the next county outside of Colorado City, TX, for beer and ice cream, and they would share both on the drive home. No one ever knew.

Lora was preceded in death by her husband, Flex R. Youngblood, Sr.; son, Flex R. Youngblood, Jr.; brothers, Hugh, Wilbur, Charles Sellier, Clyde Sellier; brother in law, Otis; sisters in law, Tyna Scarborough, Marjorie Sellier, Earline Sellier, Polly Sellier, and Mary Gates; nieces, Mary Catherine Gates, Karen Etzold, and Donna Wangerin; and a nephew, Chuck Sellier.

She is survived by her daughter in law, Jean Miller (Ray); grandchildren, Michael S. Turan, Sr., Sandra Turan, Christopher J. Turan, Brandy Bishop, Tyna M. Youngblood, Spencer Zeigler (Shea), and Brandee Darden; great-grandchildren, Trace Youngblood, Dakota LeBlanc, Michael S. Turan Jr. (Courtney), Joshua Turan, Breanna Wood, Addy Bishop, Jerrilyn Bishop, Eli Zeigler, Allison Nalley, Braxton Turan, and Charleigh Turan; great-great grandchildren, Elijah Turan, Christopher Wood, III., Delilah Wood, and Amyiah Menville; God son, Louis Maynard; cousin, Stan Bentz; nieces, Patty Montgomery, Ann Nobles, and Betty Hynson; nephews, John Sellier, and Kenneth Sellier.
