    Mrs. Orton will always have a special place in my heart. What a beautiful woman inside and out. She never met a stranger and could always find a connection. During one of our many talks we discovered that she and my mom went to the same high school in DC. Such a small world. My thoughts and prayers are with her family as they morn the loss of an amazing, gracious, and classy lady.

    I am so saddened to hear of Mrs. Orton's passing. She was a phenomenal woman to say the least. Though there were several years between the two of us we became very close and I considered her a true friend. My thoughts and prayers are with the Orton family. Love and hugs, Lindsay Strickland

    We are so sad to hear of Joan's passing . Mom and I know that to say she was a special and wonderful lady would be a vast understatement. She was a glorious human being that had a smile that's warmth radiated through you with the same brilliance as the Sun. Mother will miss her deeply, as she was a true and very dear sister to her.
