Obituary For Josephine A. Orchard

Orchard, Josephine A., 95, of Galloway Township, passed away March 17th, 2023. Born on July 4th, 1927 in Pleasantville, New Jersey, she grew up there and later lived in West Atlantic City with her husband, before moving to Galloway in 2008 after his passing. She was a seamstress before she was co-owner and accountant of Orchard’s Hydraulics for 36 years. In her free time, she enjoyed sewing, cooking, crocheting, reading novels, and watching her favorite movies.

Josephine is predeceased by her husband James Orchard. She is survived by her daughters and their spouses, JoAnn Heinle and JT in Sanford, Florida, Cathy and Jeff Taylor, and Carole and Bob Bakunoff—as well as her grandchildren, Pete Capella and Kiera Bakunoff. She is also survived by her stepson Robert and his wife Crystal Orchard, and their children, Rob and Michael as well as her step grandson Jake. She was dearly loved and will be deeply missed by each of them.

We Offer the Book of Memories™

Parsels Funeral Home offers what we consider to be the finest example of online memorials, the Book of Memories™. Created by an award-winning team of web developers and designers while being led by a funeral professional with over 25 years of experience, this online memorial is intended to provide your family with a permanent place to pay tribute to your loved one.

Far more than a traditional obituary—which is usually published only once and has no interactivity at all—the Book of Memories™ Memorial Website is a fully interactive archive of treasured photographs and stories remembered from their time spent with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

You’ll be able to invite others to visit the online memorial, where they can upload images, share stories, write heart-felt messages of condolence, send a floral tribute to the funeral, or make a charitable donation in memory of your loved one. And the built-in social media integration means they can then “spread the word” about their addition to your loved one’s Book of Memories™ using Facebook and Twitter.

We offer the families we serve a Book of Memories™ memorial website with the intention that it gives you a measure of solace and comfort during the coming months. To arrange for a Book of Memories® memorial website for your loved one, contact us today.
