Arietta Orris, 89, of Carlisle passed away on Thursday, October 6, 2022, at Church of God
Home. Known to her family and friends as “Dink”, she was born on August 3, 1933, in Gardners to the late Sylvester and Cecile (Frost) Bream.
Arietta was a 1952 graduate of Boiling Springs High School and worked for Carlisle Tire and
Rubber, Carlisle Country Club, and Union Quarries until her retirement in 1998.
Arietta was a member of Uriah United Methodist Church, where she served as church organist and treasurer for many years. She enjoyed planning special church events, including Memorial Day services, a Bicentennial musical in 1976, and the church’s 100th anniversary in 1978. Arietta had the gift of hospitality and loved entertaining family and friends in her home,
especially during the Christmas season. One of her favorite traditions was hosting a family
Christmas Eve party for the past 56 years. Arietta’s favorite hobby was painting ceramics, and she was frequently found at local craft and car shows selling her dry brushed animals. Arietta’s kind, generous, and compassionate spirit will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
