In retirement, the Langs enjoyed wintering in Apache Junction, AZ, for 21 years.

Orma and George were avid campers and travelers. Orma enjoyed making new friends and playing cards. Her favorite was bridge. She especially loved camping with her grandsons Eric and Travis. Orma was a lifelong Husker fan and particularly enjoyed the success of the women's volleyball team.

Orma will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Brenda (Lang) Jones; two grandchildren Eric (Gretchen) Jones and Travis (Jeanine) Jones; four great-grandchildren Harper Jones, Dominick Harris, Rhyenne Jones and Tyrus Jones; along with many other relatives and friends.
