August 9, 1923 - November 27, 2013

Ora married Loran Irvin Mills (Sam) on September 17, 1942 in the Logan, Utah Temple. They are the parents of five children. Ora worked for many years as a nurse. In 1959, the family moved permanently to California.

I miss you already Grandma. Used as a measuring stick for height all these years, the simple truth is no one can measure up to you. RIP!
