  Tangy Orange Atwood, age 70, passed away Sunday, February 1, 2015 at her home, surrounded by her family and friends. She was born in Galveston August 19, 1944, to William R. Orange and Angie Orange. She graduated from Ursuline Academy in 1962, in the last class to actually attend the original school building which was destroyed in hurricane Carla.

She graduated from the University of Texas in Austin in 1967 with a degree in Marketing. She went on to a 30 year career with Southwestern Bell in Houston and St. Louis.

She and Bud enjoyed traveling and scuba diving in various destinations in both the US, the Caribbean, and the pacific coast of Mexico. She was usually found feeding fish and moray eels while bud photographed her underwater. Her favorite animal was her parrot, Captain Nemo, a 13 year old white bellied caique parrot.
