I knew Orpha, I worked at Casa Arena back in 1987, she showed me (very meticulously) how to get her son Robert ready for the day. I thought I was strong but she grabbed him up without any help, see just like that she said. She was 81 at the time. She impressed me she would come in everyday to "help" us the staff with her son. So sorry for your loss.

My wife Ann and I had the privilege of visiting Orpha a couple of times.The first times was in Tularosa when she was 104. She read us a poem she wrote as a teenager and showed us her numerous paintings. She also told us some very interesting stories.
The last October we visited her in the nursing home where she had just celebrated her 106th birthday.
She was a remarkable story and a very faithful lady. She was a long time member of our church having been baptized in 1953 in the Rio Grand River.
She definitely will be one of the 'unforgettable' persons that my wife and I have every met.

Orpha was a remarkable lady. I was privileged to know her, and to visit with her at her home in Tularosa where she was always a good host, and quick with a story and a bit of history to share. She had a deep faith, and a thorough knowledge of her Bible. Orpha was quite an inspiration.

Orpha will be missed. She lived a long and fulfilling life and touched many lives.
I enjoyed visiting with her at her home with all of its memories as well as the enjoyable visits at the nursing home.
