Bergstrom, Lucille  
Lucille Virginia Duncan Bergstrom was born July 14, 1923. She passed on May 15, 2015. Mom was special as all moms are, but my mom was also my best friend. She was always there, not only for her family but also her friends as well. She could tell you about where she worked for over 30 years, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren. That was all about her life. Mom loved life and lived everyday to the fullest. She would say "Put a smile on your face, life is to short to be angry." Young & old loved my mom for her humor and wit, she could captivate and place she was at and did. Mom was my ray of sunshine.

Bradford, Jimmie Lee "Jim"  
On May 13, 2015, Jim Bradford passed away with his family at his side. He was born January 29, 1931, in Wayne, Nebraska, the only child of Allen and Bonnie Bradford. At the age of 6, his family moved west, where he spent his younger years in Puyallup, Washington and moved to Eugene in 1946, where he attended Eugene High School and went on to attend the University of Oregon, where he was a member of the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity and graduated with a degree in Economics. Upon graduation in 1952, during the Korean War, he entered the Air Force and spent the next 12 years as a pilot, flying amphibious SA-16's in the Air Rescue Service out of Hamilton AFB in California, B-47's out of Dyess AFB in Texas and as the Air Force's then youngest Command Pilot of a B-52, flying 24-hour missions over the North Pole during the height of the cold war and was poised to intervene militarily, if necessary, during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. He was stationed in California, Texas and New York and spent tours of duty in Labrador and in England. He resigned his commission as a Captain in 1964 and returned to Eugene as a civilian, where he worked for Willamette Valley Company as a salesman for a short time and then took over the management of Brad's Body & Fender (the business his parents founded) and remained as Corporate President and Manager until his retirement and the closing of the business, in 2005. He took great pride in his 3 beautiful, blonde daughters; Christy, who passed away in 2000, Julia who lives in British Columbia with her husband Gerald Janse and Brooke who lives in Eugene with her husband Kenny Kilbane. He also had 5 adored grandchildren; Justin Bradford of British Columbia, Caulder Bradford of San Francisco, Benjamin Racy of Salem, OR, Jaren Kilbane of Eugene and Lily Kilbane also of Eugene. In 1973, he married Carole Ann Jantz and in 1981, they moved to an acreage in Dexter, OR, where they built a home and fenced the property with lumber cut from their own trees. There they began raising their beloved Morgan Show Horses - a passion which he whole-heartedly supported. He often said that he found the physical labor involved his role as "gentleman farmer" to be a welcome distraction from his "day job", and took great pride in maintaining their ranch and caring for the animals (especially his 2 black Labradors and two miniature schnauzers!) Jim was past president of the Eugene Active 20-30 Club and joined the Eugene Downtown Lions Club in 1972, where he served as President (2000-01), Tail Twister and most recently enjoyed his role as provider of the-joke-of-the-day during noon meetings each week. The Lions Club recognized his service through the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award, and the very prestigious Ralph W. Robinson Award. He also gave his time volunteering for Meals on Wheels, as a Mentor for several middle schoolers and as a volunteer at RiverBend Hospital. Jim loved flying and he felt honored that he was given the opportunity to serve in the military. Obviously the United States Air Force instilled in him the principals by which he lived his entire life, those principles commemorated in the triple spires of the inspirational Air Force Memorial in Arlington, VA, and they are: Integrity First / Service Before Self / Excellence In all We Do. For all that he did for others, for all that he taught us about living a life of Honor, for always expecting the best from us and wishing the best for us - for the laughter we shared, as well as the tears, we will miss him and we will be forever grateful to have shared his life. His advice to everyone he left behind would undoubtedly be "life is brief and very fragile - Do that which makes you happy!" Musgrove Family Mortuary is in charge of arrangements, you may sign the guest book at www.musgrove.com. A memorial celebration of life will be held on Friday, May 29th at 3:00 p.m. at West Lawn Memorial Chapel, 225 S Danebo, Eugene, OR 97402. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to Eugene Downtown Lions Sight & Hearing Fund, any animal rescue organization or the charity of your choice.

Catherine's and Dalton's family grew to include a son, Stephen Treick, and a daughter, Deborah Treick.

Together Catherine and Ralph traveled locally, cruised internationally and celebrated life with their family and friends including the "Gang of Ate." Some of their favorite travel destinations included the Oregon Coast, New York, Alaska, Hawaii, and Ireland. But nothing gave Catherine greater joy then spending quiet times with Ralph, her children and their life partners, and Ralph's family.

A private graveside service will be held on Friday, June 5, 2015 at Rest-Haven Memorial Park.
