Mooreville—Flora Lorene Fennell passed away Friday July 1, 2022 at her home at the age of 87. She was born December 21, 1934 in Talladega, Alabama, the daughter of Jim and Mary Langley Morris. She was the widow of Benson Fennell to whom she was married for 63 years. Flora was a longtime dedicated member of Richmond Pentecostal Church.
