Lora Bee Nelms Hamilton Taylor, 91, passed away at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Calhoun City on Saturday, July 18, 2020. Born Septemeber 11, 1928, in Calhoun County, she was the daughter of the late William Emmette Nelms and the late Elizzie Dillard Nelms. She graduated from Calhoun City High School, and was a member of Spring Hill Baptist Church. She was retired from Kellwood Corporation after many years of service in various positions. She lived her entire life in Calhoun County, and often referred to it as “the garden spot of the world.” She enjoyed many hobbies, with eating being her favorite, as told by her family. She would coordinate her daily walks with mealtimes and “just happen” to walk to her daughter’s home around breakfast, around lunch, and around supper time. She also loved talking on the CB Radio. “Bumble Bee” enjoyed many years of conversing with her CB friends. Another hobby was Christmas Bingo, where she would always request “cash-only” prizes.
