Oregonian - ABBOTT - Aug 13, Verda D, of 14829 SE Rhine ct; wife of Henry H; mother of Donna Hammack, Gladyce Damewood, Marsha Williams, Robert and Joe Abbott; sister of Fern Mounts, Grace Genger, Vera Russell and Elmer Bay; 18 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, Friends invited to service Saturday, 11 am, Chapel of Mt Scott Funeral Home, Foster rd at SE 59th, Interment Lincoln Memorial Parl.

Grandma Abbott lived in Portland when my twin sister and I would go up and spend a week in the summer with her and Grandpa Abbott. There are many things that Grandma and Grandpa Abbott taught us while we stayed those weeks that I have turned around and taught my kids and now teaching the grandkids. Grandma worked hard cooking in the nursing home, and as I remember it she would walk to work. She ended up with stomach cancer and in those days cancer was most likely a death notice. After surgery which left her with a stroke and paralyzed on one side Grandma struggled to just survive. All the kids helped to take care of her until she passed away.
