She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Stuart in 1989; a brother, Jack Porter; sister, Jeanie Ripp; and granddaughter, Angela Moore.

She is survived by her daughter, Jeanie and her husband, Bud Moore and son, Jim Clayson, all of Myrtle Creek; son, Jerry and his wife, Ann of Trail, Oregon; Jeannette and her husband, Don Powell of Fortine, Montana; and 16 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren.

(Obit published in the Roseburg, OR "The News-Review" on March 27, 2005.)

Note: The obit misspelled her surname. The original death notice of 26 Mar. 2005 spelled it correctly. Thanks to "Aunt-Tea" for the updating info.
