|Mary ||Joan Wigle Westfall|
I have this information on my Aunt Joan. Thought you might like to add more on her.
Born: 2 Nov 1940 Corvallis, Benton, Oregon
Died: 13 May 2011 Corvallis, Benton, Oregon
Nov. 2, 1940-May 13, 2011
Joan Westfall, 70, of Corvallis died Friday, May 13.
Joan was born on Nov. 2, 1940, in Corvallis to Benjamin and Anna (Trueax) Wigle. She graduated from Philomath High School in 1958. She then attended Northwest Nazarene College in Nampa, Idaho. In 1985, she graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts.
Joan married John Westfall in 1966; they later divorced. They had one son, Benjamin John, born in 1967.
Joan was employed at OSU for 38 years, the last six as office/financial manager of the Aquaculture Collaborative Research Support Program. She retired from OSU in 2006. A diehard Beaver fan, Joan was a Beaver Club member, and for many years a season-ticket holder for basketball, football and women's gymnastics. She especially enjoyed helping with score-keeping as a volunteer at women's gymnastics meets.
Joan had a beautiful voice, and loved to sing in church choir; she was often asked to sing at various events and functions.
Joan was diagnosed with cancer in 2003. Sustained by a strong faith in God, she met the challenges of her illness with admirable courage and dignity. Those who were with her in her final days can attest that she never lost her concern for others, or her splendid sense of humor.
Joan is survived by her son, Ben, of Philomath; sisters Norma Kratzer and Betty Randall (Jerry) of Corvallis, Sue Dowell (Bill) of Lebanon, and Vivian Bradley of Philomath; nephews Darius Kratzer, Jason Bradley, Donovan Diegel, and Rich and Dusty Dowell; and nieces Andrea Kratzer, RoniSue Lee, Lea Harris, Ann Reynolds and Mary Gull.
She was preceded in death by her parents; half-sisters Anna May Winters and Iva Ettro; and Iva's son, Robert Webb.
The family would like to thank Dr. Vicky Lee, Benton Hospice Service, Corvallis Manor, and Ombudsman Dan Dunham for their kindness and support.
A funeral service will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, May 20, at Suburban Christian Church, with burial to follow at Mount Union Cemetery. Arrangements are by McHenry Funeral Home.

|Janet Sylvester||Carrie Coryell|
Thank you for you help. When I come over if I have time I will check this out. I am only going by what is on find a grave. I notice on the death certificate that she was buried in Lebanon. Does not say where.
|Dana Gammage||Joel Booth|
Thank you for telling me about the photo you took of Joel Booth located behind Jackson Booth. Jackson Booth and his first wife were my 3 great aunt and uncle and Joel was there youngest child. I had no idea that he had moved to Oregon, as well. Thank you so much for helping me with this additional family information.

Oh, lol. I am sorry about that. Yes that was an error on my part, must have been doing too much that day. It is Raymond. Thank you for all your help.
|Denice Huerta||RL Abbott|
I don't know what other correction you have received. Here is a copy of his memorial page.
He is my cousin. I am positive this is the Raymond Lloyd. His parents are correct. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else or if the link doesn't work.
|Dana Gammage||Jackson Booth|
Thank you so very much for taking this photograph for me. I live in the South, so there is no way I could have taken this myself. Usually I am helping other people with their genealogies, but this time this is for my own family. Jackson's first wife is buried in Iowa, and for a number of years I had searched for his grave. Just a few days ago, I found his second wife and that they had moved to Oregon. Thank you again for your time and effort and taking this so very, very quickly.

What a wonderful surprise to open my e-mail and see that you took a photo of Ruby and her husband 's marker. I see that you also posted the photo on her husband's memorial too.
I hope you dressed warmly in your search for the marker. It is so nice to have volunteers as yourself, to help people who can't make it to the cemeteries. Thank you for your kindness.

|Anonymous||RE: Wm Kinder family of Scio, OR|
I am trying to find out how, when and where William Kinder and wife Julia Ann (Bilyeu) Kinder's daughter Rachel Maybell "Mae" (Kinder) Brummer died. Her second marriage was to John H Brummer and they had 3 children: Henry "Hank", Nellie and Pearl, plus the son (Bill Pollard) from her first marriage.
Mae's sister Mary Ann (Kinder)Carter Brummer married John's brother Henry Berteld Brummer, who was my husband's great grandfather. We have data to support the 3 children of Mae and John were orphaned in 1902 when John was burned in a tent fire at the Bonanza gold mine in Baker County, OR. Henry and MaryAnn took those 3 children and finished raising them along with their own children. A small scrap of paper we have seen with a written message on it stated Mae died January 26, 1896. Do any of the Kinder histories from the Linn County area reflect any information on this? The Henry Brummer family bible has nothing at all about this in it. I will say that the information showing on Ancestry.com is incorrect for Mae as they say she died Dec 14, 1909 and is buried in Crook County, OR. Thanks for any info you may have to add to this.
