ORENDORFF, Jackie Lynn (nee Ross) - 1966 - 2016 - Surrounded by the love of her family, it is with immense sorrow that we announce the passing of Jackie Lynn Orendorff (Ross) on December 21 2016, at her home in London. Left to mourn her passing are her husband, sweetheart and best friend Joseph Orendorff. Their life was an adventure of love, laughter, good friends and a strong family.

Jackie was born in Kitchener and spent the first few years of her life on the Ross family farm in Holstein before moving to London with her family. She along with her husband Joe owned and operated Elmira Stove Works London since 1994. Jackie was laid back, with a great laugh, wonderful sense of humour and a no nonsense attitude. The sign that hangs in her garden reads "Welcome to Our Loud Happy Home" Jackie was a business woman 2nd generation owner of Elmira Stove Works London, an active member of the Junior Ladies Aid, organizer of Plumefest, a loyal friend to all who knew her, she loved to entertain and a huge fan of the London Knights.
