Lora Bechel, 70, of Malvern, peacefully passed away December 27, 2017. Lora was born in Dell, Arkansas to the late John David and Zelphia Wilson.



Lora’s greatest joy was her family. She loved being the grandma to Grace Bechel, Maggie Allensworth (James), Tyler Bechel, Raymond Bechel, Beth Szumc (Jacob), and Ray Seastrunk. Lora was overjoyed when she became a great-grandma to James Ray Allensworth, Brooklyn Allensworth, and Ryne Szmuc. Lora‘s children Wayne Bechel (Alicia), Ray Bechel, James Bechel (Tammy), Michael Bechel (Melanie), and Lisa Kay Threadgill were her world. Lora also had a special place in her heart for her niece, Sherry Hughes, who grew to be more like a daughter. Lora was the beloved sister to Allen Wilson, Harold Wilson, June Buckley and Bobbie Turner- and they made her the aunt to many nieces and nephews.



Lora will be greeted in Heaven by her husband, Charley Bechel, who journeyed there just six months ago. Lora’s parents, her grandson Darrell Bechel, her siblings James Wilson and Linda Hughes will be there, too
