In the 1970's she worked in a recording studio as a back ground singer and professional dancer for her sister.

     Ora was one who had many talents; cooking being the most outstanding one. Not only did she have a love and passion for cooking; she loved to feed people, which is a trademark she shared with her family.

   She was a loving and caring person, those who really knew her couldn't help but love her. Although she was a work in progress when she became angry, the love she had in her heart for God and people overpowered all of her weaknesses. 

     For a few years she became very ill, but despite her condition she endured it with faith, and continued to reach out to help others.
