Oct 16, 2015

JoAnne Elaine Orye died Sunday Oct. 11, at the early age of 66 peacefully after her year long fight with brain cancer. She was born on April 27, 1949 in Frederick, Maryland to the late Clement (Barney) and Doris Brown Fogle.

She married the late Jerome D. Orye On Oct. 20, 1976 and they had two daughters Peggy Dawn Shiamone of Williamsburg, Virginia and Jera Dee Brown of Charles Town. She was a long time resident of Brunswick, Maryland, where her girls grew up, and a current resident of Funkstown, Maryland where she worked at Weis market as a Price Accuracy Coordinator..

She graduated from Frederick High in 1967 and Cum Laude from Shepherd College in 2011 obtaining a Bachelors in Business Administration, Accounting. She loved cooking, gardening, music, movies, taking care of her “kids”, learning, a long fall walk with her good friend Sharon, and seeing the big trucks at the tractor pull. She always had an infectious smile and would do anything for anyone, especially her girls.

She was dearly loved and will be forever be remembered in every fragrant Peony and beautiful rose that blooms in the spring and as the first snow falls in the crisp winter.

She is survived by a brother Michael Fogle and wife (Sis) Theresa, daughters Christie, Peggy and husband Shane, Jera and husband Jeremy, grandsons Jeremiah Jr., Cory, Brandon, Braden, Gavin, and Donovan, granddaughters Shelby and Nataleigh, and her close friends Sharon, Stacy, and Carol.

The family thanks the wonderful caregivers from Farhney Keedy, in Boonsboro, and the hospice nurse Kathy for everything. A private Celebration of Life will be planned in her honor. For more information please contact the family at pshiamn1@gmail.com.
