“Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

Mrs. Orr is survived by her husband of 52 years, Charles William Orr, Sr. The love and devotion the two of them shared was indescribable, and the family they were blessed with was her greatest source of pride. Their children, Charles William Orr, Jr. and his wife, Kathleen, Teresa Orr, Melinda Orr, Beckie Buckner and her husband, Wade; grandchildren, Meaghan (Howard) Haines, Colleen (Jerry) McDonald, Nicole (Patrick) Palmer, Sarah (Matthew) Lake, Christa (Jonathan) Smith, Brae (Zack) Swagert, Madison, Chayse, and Alexandra Orr; great-grandchildren, Garrett, Trip, and Griffin McDonald, Hailey Haines, Kyleigh and Peyton Sharron, Issac Lake, Brody, Owen, and Ansleigh Smith...all because two people fell in love. Special nieces and nephews, as well as friends that became family, have known her love.
