East Kildonan was home for many years and she enjoyed the many activities at the East Kildonan YMCA and Melrose Community Club. Orla was often seen volunteering in the canteen or cheering from the sidelines. Orla spent many summers with her family at Grand Beach and later Sandy Hook and took many rail trips out to BC to visit her brother Robert (Uncle Bob). After many years Orla moved on to Valhalla and made many new friendships. Orla took many winter vacations with her lifelong friends, Doreen and Thelma travelling to Hawaii, Florida and Phoenix. Orla also attended many cultural events with her longtime friend Emily. Orla and Emily looked forward to Saturdays, getting their hair done and taking in lunch. Family was very important to Orla. She participated in many family celebrations and was a regular for Sunday dinners. She made sure everyone always received a card on their birthday or anniversary. Orla will be remembered for her kindness and warm heart. At Orla's request, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service.
