She was an excellent cook and quite a seamstress; Orina took great pride in sewing clothes for her children and family, as her son Alan says, “I still wear Mom’s shirt.”

Orina was preceded in death by her parents, Lillian and Collins Pellerin Sr.; sisters, Nedra Washington, Ernestine Vorice and Carrie Pellerin; and her brother, Collins Pellerin Jr.
