We want to extend a deep thanks to her caregivers Rose, Kathy, and Mary for their service and friendship over the years.
Orma, a woman unique as her name, was a loving and generous mother and grandmother. She could always be counted on for a witty remark, a cold Faygo or Vernors, and a sweet treat. She enjoyed reading, crafting, and games and would happily spend time discussing the pros and cons of every slot machine in existence. She always kept her sense of humor and lived a full life. She will be missed deeply.
