Shirley Seavey Deardorff
June 20, 1920 March 22, 2007

Shirley died peacefully in her sleep Thursday at her home in Sublimity, where she lived with her husband, Don. She had recently been diagnosed with congestive heart failure.

She was born in Springfield to Mollie and Jess Seavey, who were hop farmers in the Corvallis and Eugene areas. Shirley was a retired schoolteacher, avid rock hound and loved the outdoors. In 1992, she received a Jefferson Award for her work as co-founder of the Iris Project, a drop-in center for people with mental illness.

She is survived by husband Don, a retired physicist-metallurgist; sister Joan Thomas of Hayward, Calif.; children Mollie Bonson, Linda Young, Jess Deardorff, Marcie Wolf and Pushpa Duncklee; numerous grandchildren; and her dog, Roxie.

At her request, her remains will be cremated and the family will hold private services.
