Edith M. "Betty" Orr

December 10, 1930 ~ June 1, 2022 (age 91)


Edith M. “Betty” Orr, 91, Baltimore, MD, went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 1, 2022.

Betty was born in Bonny Blue, VA and was married to Keith E. Orr for 61 years. They had a very loving relationship and worked hard together through the years to build a wonderful home and life for their family. Keith and their son, Ricky Orr, preceded Betty in death on February 16, 2010 and February 16, 1996, respectively. Surviving Betty are her three daughters, Rita Orr, Lisa Orr Ketter, Mona Orr Clookie and her husband Mark Clookie. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren: Christopher Orr, Michael Fager Jr., Joshua Ketter (Katie), Aubrey Mason (Chris), Jeremy Fager, Lynsie Murray (Drew), Kaitlyn Howse (Matthew), Mark Clookie Jr. (Mia), and twelve great-grandchildren.

Betty was the third child of Farris and Ellen (Edens) Pease. Her father was a coal miner and her mother a homemaker. There were nine children in Betty’s family. Seven siblings are deceased: Jenny Ferguson, Wilma Blevins, Jim Pease, Doyle Pease, Carlene de Leuze, Phyllis Taylor, and Judy Ferrare. Betty is also survived by one brother, Jack Pease.

Betty was loving and giving to everyone she knew and her laugh would light up a room. Her wonderful meals and peanut butter fudge served people for many years in her family kitchen. Betty was as close to perfection as anyone can be and she will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

A Celebration of Life for Betty will be held at Arundel Christian Church, 710 Aquahart Road, Glen Burnie, MD 21061. The service will take place Monday, June 27 at 11:00 am, with a light reception immediately following at the church.

A private interment will take place at a later date where Betty will be buried alongside her husband Keith.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to your local Hospice care facility.
