Betty Ferrall Orshoski
Betty J. Ferrall was born to James E. and Audria Flick Ferrall in Galion, Ohio, on July 15, 1932. After her parents divorced, Betty moved with her mother to Bay View, Ohio, where Audria owned and operated the Log Cabin Inn Restaurant.(Audria would later remarry, becoming Mrs. Frank Deme.) Betty graduated from Margaretta High School in 1950. She was a good friend of Joyce Parker's, and the two friends would eventually marry brothers. Wayne and Betty Orshoski lived next door to Paul and Joyce Orshoski in Bay View in the 1950's and 1960's.During those baby boom years, Betty and Wayne had three children, and Paul and Joyce had six children.
Betty used to pack up her children, along with the nieces and nephews next door, into the Jeep, and off they would go to the beach, the park, or the dairy queen. Betty was a wonderful listener, and her door was always open for company. When the family dog named Tarzan had a litter of puppies, they quickly re-named the dog "Tarzana."
Sadly, Betty died at the age of 64 on June 8, 1997. She is buried with her husband Wayne at Meadow Green Memorial Park in Huron, Ohio. Known to many as "Aunt Bets," Betty Ferrall Orshoski will long be remembered as a loving person who had a wonderful sense of humor.
