Margaret Flora McKenzie ORR died in Auckland as well, at least she was living there when she made her will. She too is interred at Waikumete.

Was at same address as a James ORR and the GRAYs according to electoral rolls.

Thank you Ian. It looks like the 1966 death for a Marion Johanna Orr is the correct one.
