      Beloved Washoe Woman Passes to Great Beyond

      With the passing late Wednesday of Mrs. Samuel Orr, Sr., at Washoe, that community lost one of it's most beloved residents. Born eighty years ago in Scotland, she has lived about 30 years in the United States and the past seven at Washoe at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Henry Rae (ed. Agnes). Funeral services were held Sunday at the Rae home at Washoe, the service being in charge of Rev. J. Varner of the Washoe Community church. Surviving children are Mrs. Henry Rae of Washoe, Mrs. John Waugh of Vancouver, B.C., Samuel Orr, Jr., of Vancouver, and Philip (ed. David?) Orr of Roundup. She had 25 grandchildren and 6 great-grand-children.
