In Loving Memory of Joanne Orluk


It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Joanne Orluk, a pillar of our school over the past 25 years, passed away on Friday, April 14th, 2023 after a battle with cancer.

Over her many years at St. Pius V, Mrs. Orluk was a school parent, PTO leader, administrative assistant, the founder of our Before School Program,  development and admissions person, and most recently helped with our After School Program as well as music and art classes.  Her work on behalf of the students, families, and staff of St. Pius V is still felt here in our school every day.

Please keep her and her family in your prayers.  In lieu of flowers, the Orluk family requests that contributions be made to the organizations Mrs. Orluk supported, including the St. Pius V School Endowment Fund and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Contributing to the Endowment fund in Mrs. Orluk's name ensures that she will continue to touch the lives of St. Pius V School students for many years to come.  Click here to contribute online.  Thank you very much for honoring her memory with your support.
