Frances Delores Orso, 86, went home to be with the Lord on February 17, 2021. She passed away with family by her side. Frances was born in Dawes, Alabama on March 1, 1934, to Howard and Ruth Reeves. She worked hard while growing up on the family farm with her brothers and sister. Some of her chores included taking care of animals and picking cotton in the hot Alabama sun.
She married Gerald Orso in 1957 and raised the family by his side. During his career in the USAF, they were stationed at bases in New York, Georgia, Taiwan, California, and Florida. Later she worked for the civil service and was proud to complete her associate’s degree. Hurricane Andrew destroyed her home in 1992, so she moved to Montana to be near her son’s family. Her joy was to get to see her grandsons grow up.
