Graveside funeral service will be held on May 19, 2018, at Haines Cemetery in Haines, Oregon, at 11am.
Lora Ann Murdoch was born June 4, 1950, in Baker City, Oregon, to John and Barbara Murdoch. The youngest of three, she joined her brother Dennis and sister Donna.
Lora grew up in North Powder, Oregon, and attended school there until her graduation in 1968. After high school, Lora attended Blue Mountain Community College and received certification as a dental technician. However, she discovered that the field of dentistry was not for her and instead she moved to Boise and began working as an optician, a career she loved and worked in until her retirement in 2017.
Lora met and fell in love with Doug Fialkowski. The two had 26 years of grand adventures, attending car shows and swap meets, and decided to marry June 26, 2016, in a small private ceremony in Haines, Oregon.
Lora passed away April 21, 2018, in Boise, Idaho, surrounded by her husband and close family after a brief illness.
Lora is preceded in death by her parents, John and Barbara Murdoch, and her brother Dennis. She is survived by her husband Doug and their corgi Kate; sister Donna Dias and her husband Ernie; step-children Jeff and Renee Fialkowski, Ben Fialkowski and Micah Rovera, and Andy and Deanna Fialkowski; nephew Scott Murdoch; nieces Lorrie Murdoch and Tonya Dias; four great nephews; a great niece; and many very special friends.
Lora was full of life and laughter and enjoyed wine, classic cars, antiques, dogs, and her friends and family. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
