Ora will be greatly remembered for her love of baking, especially her donuts which her grandchildren loved. She was a very giving person, opening her home to many strangers over the years by renting out her rooms for as little as $5/night to families of extended stay patients of St. Lukes Hospital-now Sanford. Ora even gave up her own bedroom on many occasions. There were always fresh baked items and coffee in the morning. Ora also loved to fish and spend time in her garden.

She is survived by a daughter, Orlene Nundahl, Moorhead, MN, three sons, Alfred (Janet) Carvell, Washburn, ND, Delbert (Marlys) Carvell, Mesa, AZ, Milton (Ardis) Carvell, Fargo. Seven grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, and a great-great grandson.
