Winterbotham, George  
George E. "Jerry" Winterbotham January 7, 1927 - August 1, 2016 Jerry Winterbotham passed away at the age of 89 in Keizer, Oregon. On January 7, 1927 Jerry was born in Portland, OR to George Errol and Caryl (McFeeters) Winterbotham. He had one sister, Donna Lee Johnson who preceded him in death in 2007. After the passing of his father in 1936, his mother Caryl married Jack Gorman and the family moved to Elkton where his new father had a ranch along the Umpqua River. It was there that he developed his love of sports, Oregon history and fishing. After serving in the army at the end of WWII, Jerry attended Oregon State University and upon graduation in 1950 moved back to Elkton where he purchased a small ranch near his parents. He married Alma Dunlap and had three daughters. He spent 27 years teaching and coaching in the Elkton School District. After retiring from teaching in 1979, Jerry and Alma sold their ranch and moved to Roseburg where Jerry became very active in the Umpqua Fishermen's Association and the Salmon Trout Enhancement Program (STEP). It was there that he began researching and writing about the area in which he grew up. He authored several books, one of which was Umpqua: The Lost County of Oregon in which he recounted the history of the only Oregon county not in existence today. In 1994, they moved to Brownsville where they could be closer to their beloved OSU Beavers and attend many of the college games. In 2000 Jerry wrote and published Footsteps on the Umpqua, an early history of the Umpqua River basin. Jerry and Alma moved to Keizer to be closer to family in 2010. Jerry is survived by his wife of 62 years, Alma; daughters Lori (Greg) Pedersen of Keizer, Sally (Spike) Bruggeman of Umpqua, OR and Cathy (Joe) Piccolella of Converse, TX; granddaughter Kate Pedersen and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. A private family interment was held at Willamette National Cemetery on August 10th. There will be a Memorial Service on September 18th at 2:00 pm at Elkton High School. Contributions may be made in memory of Jerry to the Elkton Charter School Auxiliary Building Fund, PO Box 390, Elkton, OR 97436
