Abbott, Anna "Lorraine"  
Anna "Lorraine" Abbott On April 1, 2016, Anna "Lorraine" Abbott left her home in Eugene, OR to wait for her family on the other side. She wrote about her peritoneal cancer prognosis "Leaving home always has a touch of sadness, but we wouldn't want our children not to grow up or our old folks to hang around forever. I am thankful it took me this long to graduate from this life." We are grateful to Lorraine for teaching us, participating in our lives, and loving us. As the matriarch of a family of selfascribed nerds, she playfully referred to herself as "The Grandnerder" in emails. She was born on June 13, 1925 to Albert and Lucille Fogg. Her fondness for scholastic pursuits started at a young age when she rode a horse to piano lessons in her home town of Cedaredge, CO. After high school, she attended Colorado State College of Education. Teaching opportunities brought her to Eugene, OR. She married her late husband, Forrest J. Abbott, on Sept. 1, 1951. Together they had a son, Steven. She taught for over 30 years in the 4J district. She loved the color lavender. In her retirement, Lorraine was an active member at Cascade Manor and organized a weekly movie night, practiced Tai Chi and created many origami creatures. She volunteered regularly at Food for Lane County and The League of Women Voters. She was also an active member at Trinity United Methodist Church. She loved her communities and The Lord's Prayer. Holidays this year will not twinkle as brightly. We will miss Lorraine's penchant for festive brooches, her predilection for sparkly QVC jewelry and the cheery jitters of wrapping presents at the the last moment. She was always running late; a charming foible. She loved her family. A memorial service will be held Saturday May 7th at Trinity United Methodist Church, 440 Maxwell Rd, Eugene, at 2 pm. The family asks that in honor of Lorraine and her earnest hope for world peace, that you do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for someone. She would love it.

Atwood, Phoebe Smith  
Phoebe Smith Atwood Phoebe Smith Atwood was born on July 6, 1923 in Eugene, Oregon to Phoebe Ellison and Warren DuPre Smith. She passed peacefully early Easter morning surrounded by family. Her two older brothers, James Francis Smith and Warren Ellison Smith, preceded her in death. She lived her entire life in Eugene until she moved to Portland to be closer to her family for her last 4 years. She grew up next to the University of Oregon campus and she watched every Duck football game she could; she was thrilled to attend at least two Rose Bowl games, 1958 and 1995. She attended University High School on the U of O campus and she often snuck out of school to watch her brother Warren play baseball for the U of O at Howe Field. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a BA in general studies. She joined Pi Beta Phi in 1942 and was active as an alumna for many years. Phoebe married Wayne Riley Atwood on July 8, 1944 in Cambridge, Mass, where he was in the Navy's officer training program before he was sent to the Pacific. They remained in love and devoted to each other until he passed away in 1996. She worked in secretarial positions until the birth of her two sons, Ronald Wayne Atwood and Thomas James Atwood. Thereafter she was a homemaker and volunteer for many Eugene organizations. She was a member of Junior Service League/Junior League, dancing in at least two Follies. She was a Docent at the Museum of Art on the University campus from 1959 to 1973 and she passed on to her children a love of Oriental and Asian Art. She volunteered at the Red Cross, Community Volunteer Office, and the YM/YWCA board. She was an early volunteer at Pearl Buck School, when they were just learning how to care for developmentally disabled children and adults. She volunteered at Sacred Heart Hospital and the United Way. She served on the Eugene Opera Board and Eugene Library Board. She was a long-time member of Fortnightly, where she enjoyed the intellectual challenges, making several presentations to the group and was President in 1983 and 1984. She was also a long-time member of Do Nothings, an active group of women who enjoyed each other's company and did much more than "do nothing". In recent years she enjoyed OSHA Life Long learning activities at the University and taking Tai Chi. She traveled extensively with Wayne and after Wayne passed away in 1996, she continued to travel accompanied by friends and relatives, principally her niece Dorothy Suddath with whom she shared a passion for white wine. Her first overseas trip was a ski trip to Europe in 1964. She trekked in Nepal, snorkeled in the Galapagos, celebrated the turning of the Millennium in the Cook Islands, drove from Nepal into Tibet, explored Machu Picchu in Peru and visited such widespread locations as Bhutan, Kenya, Indonesia, Egypt, Cambodia, Laos, Russia, Japan and China. As she got older, she enjoyed a number of river cruises in Europe and at least one cruise on the Mississippi River. Her last overseas trip was when she was 88. By the time she was done traveling, she had visited some 50 countries. Her last trip to New York in 2009 was in support of the Oregon Bach Festival where she attended the Metropolitan Opera to listen to her favorite singer, Alan Held, and to listen to the Messiah, conducted by Helmuth Rilling. Phoebe loved the outdoors; she and Wayne skied most of the major ski areas in the western United States, but loved Mt. Bachelor the best. Skiing was the activity the family enjoyed the most. She was 79 when she stopped skiing. She is survived by her two sons, Ronald (Rebecca Youngstrom) and Thomas (Dorothy Atwood), four grandchildren, Kira, Elise, Duncan and Tara, many nieces and nephews, an honorary son from Japan, Hiroshi and an honorary son from Ethiopia, Hailu. She was ever the curious student; she loved music, believed in education, supported most of the arts and music groups in Eugene and was a grand matriarch for an extensive family whose well-being was her primary concern. She was gracious, charming and curious; she loved a good political discussion and always felt comfortable expressing her opinion. She was looking forward to our first woman president. Memorial gifts may be made to the University of Oregon School of Music and Dance. A memorial service will be held in Portland on June 4, 2016 at Moreland Presbyterian Church beginning at 1:00.
