1914 – 2012 - Obituary Condolences
Mary Eileen  Pavlinac Menconi Obituary
Eileen, age 98, died peacefully in her senior home on July 17, 2012, surrounded by adoring family members and loving staff.
She is survived by her daughters, Ruth Larson, M.D., a Dermatologist in Poway, CA, and Joanne Powell, retired in Portland, OR; and son, Joseph Pavlinac, retired in Kennewick, WA. She was blessed by seven amazing grandchildren and four lively great-grandchildren!
She was preceded in death by her sons, Dr. Dennis Pavlinac, a San Diego psychiatrist, and "Rick" Menconi; and her late husbands, Joe Pavlinac and Richard Menconi of Menconi Berry Farms.
Eileen's long life of 98 years can be certainly attributed to her sunny disposition. Her smile and songs would light up a room. Indeed, her sense of humor was renown, as was her sharp mind and poker skills until her late 90s! She was a force for joy and laughter, enriching the lives of her family members and many friends.
A celebration for life will be held on October 13, 2012, at 11 am at St. John's Cemetery in Oregon City, OR.
