Rosemary Therese (Rivera) Orin, age 80, born in Omaha, Nebraska, to Antonio and Antonia Rivera on September 26, 1940, passed away peacefully on September 23, 2021. A graduate of Notre Dame Academy, she married Robert E. Orin on April 18, 1959, at Sacred Heart Church in Omaha, NE. They spent 44 wonderful years together until his untimely passing in May 2003.
She worked part-time for Mangelsen’s due to her passion for crafts and crocheting and considered them her 2nd family. She was a member of the St. Columbkille’s Rosary Club which met on Wednesdays and no matter where she was, be it home or traveling, you would always find her making rosaries to be sent to the missions across the world. She loved spending time at church with women of the group and catching up on the latest and greatest news. She had many dear friends and Avon customers that she had met throughout the years.
