An email I received from my father this morning:

Cindy Orr passed away (5/7/09).
Junior and high school biology teacher Mr. Terry Orr's wife Cindy passed away last night. She had been fighting emphysema for a few years and was on oxygen. She became critical last Friday and was taken to Tucson. She never regained consciousness. She had been the elementary school principal here and in recent years taught in Gila Bend before the emphysema forced her to retire.

Jr. High

Taken in the mid 90's facing the 4th grade playground. The mining buildings (and smoke stack) in the background are no longer there. I'm not sure if the playground equipment is either.
