      From the Daily Inter Lake, Sunday, August 9, 1992:

      Edith Orr, 90
      Edith Orr, 90, of Kalispell, died at Brendan House Aug. 5. She was born Aug. 3, 1902, in
      Extension, British Columbia, Canada, to Thomas and Isabelle Orr. During her early years, the
      family moved many times, as her father was a miner. They finally settled in Klein, Mont. (near
      Roundup), where Edith graduated from Klein High School in 1922. She worked in Klein, and in
      1937, she moved to Billings, where she was a bookkeeper for Vaughn Ragsdale store for many
      years. In 1964, she moved to Kalispell to live with her sister. Edith never married, and is
      survived by her sister, Jennet Beaver, of Kalispell. Private burial will be made at Sunset Hills
      Cemetery in Bozeman Monday. Arrangements are under the direction of Johnson Mortuary.
