Elizabeth Lacy Clore, 58, of Conover passed away on Saturday, July 4, 2020, at her residence.
She was born March 8, 1962 in Richland County to the late John W. Clore and to Julia Woods Hunt of Kings Mountain. Beth was insightful and kind, and sometimes a little impatient. She expected the best from people and could be irritable when she didn’t get it. Beth remembered birthdays and anniversaries with a card in the mail, she brought souvenirs from her vacations to family and friends (she did love a gift shop), she would put candy on her desk for her colleagues, and even remembered our pets.
Beth was a voracious reader, loved movies, and had a wide range of interests from history and philosophy to Shark week to head-banging heavy metal music to sports.
She loved her two cats, Lilith and Chester Bennington, who will be lost without her to spoil them. Beth leaves behind her mother, Julia Woods Hunt of Kings Mountain; sisters, Julia Clore-Laurich and husband Cliff Laurich of Kings Mountain, Catherine Strange of Kings Mountain; nephews who probably learned too much from her when they were teenagers because she was the coolest Auntie; family and friends who will miss her humor and stories. Greeting her upon her death were her father, John Clore; brother-in-law, Lance Strange; grandparents, step-father, Gene Hunt and uncle, John Woods.
