Frances Irene Orr passed away peacefully at home on Saturday February 13, 2021 just eleven days after her husband. She was 85 years old, born on January 3, 1936. She was born in Mountain Grove, Missouri to Virgil Sanders and Bertha Loomiss Sanders. She was one of four siblings. She married Charles Eugene Orr on January 2, 1952. They were blessed with three children: Deborah, Rick, and Jerry. After Charles served in the Army for two years they moved to Parma, Idaho and then on to Nyssa, Oregon where she worked as a school bus driver. After their retirement they settled in Nampa, Idaho to be near their children and grandchildren. She loved to go camping, travel, bargain shop, and entertain her family at holiday gatherings. Her fudge, peanut brittle, and popcorn balls were always a staple that we all looked forward to. She was able to say that she had five grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild which she loved and cherished very much. Gene and Frances lost their son Jerry in 2014, seven years have passed and they are both now reunited with him. She was very loved and will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
