    We love Orrelia, If someone had asked what the best part of her life was, I think she would have said, her family.

    This death hits close to home, as we all grew up together, played together, went to school and other functions together, and we are all in the same age bracket. A very nice person with a beautiful smile and sweet personality. A woman that has one of the most respected husbands and children in the Stowell community, a family that showed nothing but love and care for one another.......... how can she not be missed by her family, friends and classmates. I will always remember her beauty, her smile, but most important the history she has in the East Chambers ISD and Winnie-Stowell community in being the first black Afican American cheerleader in the school's history in 1976, 44 years in the making. May you RIP and God bless the Leday and Davis family in their time of need.
