Ora P. Waller was born Oct. 14, 1942 in Virginia to the late Harry B. Waller and Lula B. Hill. She was their first born and the apple of their eye. Harry wanted a boy so he proceeded to teach Ora how to do boy things, but Lula being the lady that she was continued to thwart that with girly things. Harry and Lula left Virginia when Ora was about three years old and came to Glen Cove, a quaint little town that reminded them of home and they settled there. Ora being the eldest of five children had much responsibility place upon her. By nature she automatically became a second mother to her siblings.
