Lincoln S. CharleyMonday, 12 January 2009Lincoln Stanford Charley died Dec. 27, 2008, which was his 94th birthday. He was born to Walter Floyd and Bertha Anna (Bryan) Charley, on Dec. 27, 1914, in Climax, Ore., the third of 12 children in the Charley clan. He attended school in Climax, becoming an avid reader and a good student. He graduated from the eighth grade in 1929. Mr. Charley met the love of his life, Donna Monia, during the 1935 pear harvest, where they worked side by side. They married at the Medford Courthouse on Dec. 27, 1935, which was his 21st birthday. The couple had four children; Shirley, Connie, Mary and William. Mr. Charley became a full-time faller in the late 1030s. He worked for So. Ore. Sugar Pine through the early 1950s, ultimately joining his brother, Boyd, at Miller-Rellim Timber Co., in Crescent City. He remained there until retiring in 1975. He was a self taught musician, playing the fiddle, mandolin, guitar and harmonica, among other instruments. He loved the outdoors. His passion for reading kept him sharp to his last days. He read the newspaper daily, worked crossword puzzles and often wrote letters to the editor. He was a man of deep devotion who loved his wife of 72 years, even through her long battle with Alzheimer's. He is survived by his sisters, Opal Monia, Clarabel Storm, Ruby Pruett, Eunice (Frank) Richardson, Rosalea (Floyd) Young; daughters, Shirley Cunningham, Donnie (Don) McComb and Mary (Ramon) Nieto; son William Charley; 12 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren.
