AUBURN, Calif. - Ethel Mariam "Dynamite" Leathers, 95, formerly of Monument, died Jan. 31, 2009 at Colonial Healthcare in Auburn, Calif. A memorial service will be held this summer, 11 a.m. July 4, at the Monument Senior Center.

Mrs. Leathers was born Oct. 28, 1913 on Cupper Creek Canyon in Monument, to Morton and Louise Cupper. She graduated from Monument High School.

On Feb. 20, 1932, she married Wayne D. Leathers Sr. in Canyon City. The couple made their home on a 1,960-acre cattle ranch where they worked side-by-side in all aspects of ranch life. She was a caregiver for most of her life, from when she was young and continuing with caring for her husband until his death.

She was a member of Presbyterian churches in Monument and Eagle Creek, where she served as an elder. She was also a member of the First Baptist Church in North Highlands, Calif., where she was honored for two years as the oldest living member. She was also a member of Eastern Star in Long Creek and of the Grange in Monument.

Survivors include her daughters, Bertine Gates of Chico, Calif. and Deanna Heckel of Eagle Creek; son, Wayne D. Leathers Jr. of North Highlands, Calif.; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Wayne D. Leathers Sr.; brother, Henry Cupper; and granddaughter, Lori Leathers.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Wayne D. Leathers Scholarship Fund at Monument High School, or to any hospice care. (Blue Mountain Eagle newspaper, John Day, Grant, Oregon)
