Orpha Lou, along with her husband, were co-owners of the former Radio Shack in Clearfield.
She was a lifetime member of the Centre Grove United Methodist Church and was active with the United Methodist Women.
Orpha Lou had volunteered at the Clearfield Hospital as an Escort.
Orpha Lou is survived by her four children; Jim Kane and his wife Pam, Nancy Hummel and her husband, Ron, Ruth Ann Kane and Chris M. Kane and his wife Pammy, all of Clearfield, nine grandchildren, a number of great grandchildren, a brother-in-law, Howard Heckler of Lansdale and a number of nieces and nephews.
