Not sure what to say?

Carol was a dedicated teacher, I was lucky to have her for a mentor at Pleasant Hill High School all four years. She sponsored FBLA and we were very active in the local chapter. Her letters to me when I went into the service were always supportive. Sharon and I still have our wedding gift from her. She was truly a beautiful person, I was so happy for her when she found Charlie.

Miss Orpin was my favorite teacher/mentor/ friend. We always corresponded at Xmas throughout the years. Loved hearing about what she and "Charlie" we're doing. I'm glad she and "Charlie" found each other! Having someone share same interest/hobbies/church and traveling and friends is great! Now she & Charlie can be together. RIP. Always, Nanci Pearson Palmateer

I am so sorry for your loss. If it wasn't for Miss Orpin I wouldn't have succeeded in the career I had for most of my adult life. I struggled so. She gave me the confidence I sorely need.

I am sorry to hear of Miss Orpins passing. She was one of my favorite teachers at Pleasant Hill High School, and I often think of her.
