Her birth mother gave her up for adoption, and she spent the fi rst four years of her life in an orphanage in New Orleans. A couple from Chicago adopted Josephine when she was four. Josephine always knew that she was adopted and when she applied for her fi rst passport in 1971, she obtained her birth certifi cate and began a journey to track down her birth parents. As a result of her determination and persistence, Josephine was successful in establishing a rewarding relationship with the families of her birth parents. In 1951, Josephine married Robert


Orestad, a carpenter and salesman. For many years the couple lived in Illinois where Josephine worked as an expeditor at Elmhurst Hospital. She had two children: her daughter, Tina, and her son, Norman. In 1964 Robert developed kidney disease. Josephine read an article about a doctor in Seattle who was experimenting with kidney transplants and she contacted him about Robert’s condition. Due to Josephine’s perseverance, Robert was accepted into a then novel program in Virginia and became one of the fi rst recipients of a cadaver kidney transplant. Until Robert’s death in 1992, the Orestad family’s life revolved primarily around Robert’s health issues.


In the 1989, Orestads


relocated to Conc ret e , Washington. In 2002 Josephine moved to Lakes,


Sun Arizona,


where she lived until her death. In Sun Lakes Josephine worked as a demonstration lady in various local stores, an occupation for which she was well suited given her outgoing personality.

Tina Frey, an investment advisor in Chicago, Illinois; her grandson, Zachary Frey, a restaurant manager in Los Angeles, California; her son, Norman; and her grandson, Tory Max Orestad. Her family wishes to acknowledge the help and comfort that they and Josephine received from hospice care prior to her death.
