She later became a homemaker for her two children. She was very involved in the boys’ lives, from education to Boy Scouts. Her greatest pride was watching her children achieve their goals. She enjoyed many leisure activities with them. Throughout her life she enjoyed traveling with family and making lasting memories.

Jorga’s grandchildren and granddogs brought her endless laughs and smiles; from crafty activities, reading, and devouring the best hot dogs at baseball games to playing catch and tug-of-war. She was a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and later Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. Jorga was preceded in death by her mother Joy McGregor and father John M. McGregor, grandparents John and Lena Broderson, and brother David Johnson. Jorga is survived by her husband Kim E. Gallion, Sioux Falls, SD; her two children Michael E.
