Lorine "Lo" Tabor Streeter, widow of Robert Warren Streeter, passed away Saturday, November 9, 2013 at the Life Care Center, Columbia, SC. She was born in Camden, SC on December 7, 1927, the daughter of the late John B. Tabor Sr. and Mae Louise Cain Tabor. Lorine loved her Lord and Savior. She was a devoted wife and mother and loved her house and farm in Pontiac and especially her kitchen. She was the best cook and was constantly baking cakes and cookies to give away. Lorine loved gardening, crafts, sewing, traveling, fishing, camping, and thrift store shopping. There seemed to be nothing that she couldn’t do. She had a huge heart and her generosity knew no bounds. Lorine loved to talk, tell stories, laugh, sing and dance. Her parents said she was trying to talk the day she was born. She was fervent in her prayers and will be so missed.
Lorine is survived by her son, Frank Motley of Pontiac and her daughter, Minnie Motley of Greenville, SC; 2 grand dogs, Lady and Dolly; a sister, Ola Mae Pilkey of Hampton, VA; sisters-in-law, Helen Tabor of Columbia, Edye Matthews of Manning, SC and Dianne Alderman of Columbia; brother-in-law Woody Alderman, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents and her husband, Bob, Lorine was predeceased by her aunt Emma Webb, her husbands, Franklin Lever Motley, Sr. and Ralph Carl Luck; brothers J. C. Tabor, Carl Tabor, Charles Tabor, Melvin Tabor and John Tabor, Jr.; and her sister, Louise Long. Also, by her wonderful friends Jr. and Rose Koon, Johnny and Mary Gibbs, Modene Ferguson, Mamie Pierce and Link and Hattie Taylor.
Many thanks to her special nieces Debra "Tootie" Walker and Robin McLeod for their caring through the years.
