Ms. Orbin was an avid Pittsburgh Steeler and Penguin fan and enjoyed her annual Daytona Beach vacation with her cousins, attending concerts with her friends, shopping, exercising, and playing with her dog Lemie, but most important, she was a proud and devoted CiCi to her grandchildren.

Surviving are a daughter, Allison Hull (Mark) of Sewickley; a son, Lewis Pilkington of Eighty Four; four grandchildren, Marideth, Brady, Erin and Derek Hull; two brothers, Joseph Orbin Jr. (Barb) of Finleyville and Jerry W. Orbin (Mary Lou) of McDonald; and a sister, Diane Parkinson (Buzz) of Canonsburg; a beloved cousin, Sharon Browning of Washington; and many nieces and nephews.

Friends will be received from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, September 14, and 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, September 15, in McIlvaine-Speakman Funeral Home Ltd., Robert K. McIlvaine, owner/supervisor, 27 Cherry Avenue, Houston, PA 15342, where services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, September 16, with the Rev. Susan Petritis officiating. Interment is private.
