She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Sarah Benefiel, her brothers, Earl Benefiel and Forrest Benefiel; and a son-in-law, Tom Wohlberg.

The family is grateful for the care Orpha received while a resident at Vermillion Place and also in her final days at Anderson Community Hospital. She was blessed with loving home health aids, Marilyn Richards, Stacie Cabrera and Jaimica Snyder.

A memorial service is being planned for a later date.
