BRENT­WOOD, CALIF. — Sarah El­iz­a­beth Orn (Waldis) passed away on Sept. 21,

2018, in Brent­wood, Calif. She was 96 years old.

Sarah was born in Fed­er­als­burg, Md., on Aug. 22,

1922. Her par­ents were Joseph and Min­nie Scott Waldis. Sarah grad­u­ated from Fed­er­als­burg High School in 1941. She mar­ried Leonard Orn, an en­sign in the U.S. Navy, on April 8, 1944. Leonard was in the Navy and the Air Force for a to­tal of 23 years, so they trav­eled a lot. Pamela was born in Hawthorne, Nev.; Bon­nie and Gary were born in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. They lived in Ed­in­burgh, Scot­land, for one year. In

1952, they set­tled in Cas­tro

Sarah and Leonard di­vorced in 1964. Sarah worked in re­tail at Cap­wells and Macy’s for 22 years. She was an ex­pert in mat­tresses and bed­ding linens. She was also pretty good at bowl­ing. She played in bowl­ing leagues for sev­eral years. She loved go­ing to Fish­er­man’s Wharf in San Fran­cisco for a Crab Louie, and we did that every time we vis­ited.
