She relocated to Canby to be near her son and his family after the death of her husband, but she always retained her fondness for "the home place" in Coos County. Doris was a devoted and talented homemaker and retained her sparkling wit and clarity of mind to the end. Doris' homemade fudge, divinity, and cinnamon rolls were often the centerpiece of spirited family gatherings. Doris celebrated her 100th birthday last May with a party that included many extended family members. Doris is interred at Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Coos County. A memorial service will be held on Saturday May 10 in Canby. In lieu of flowers, the Caudle family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Coquille Valley Hospital, Coquille, Oregon.

Calvin Fred Davis Life-Long Educator Calvin F. Davis, a 61 year resident of Cottage Grove, peacefully passed away at age 88 of causes related to age and Parkinson's on March 26, 2014. Cal is best known for his life-long career as an educator and principal at Latham Elementary School in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Cal was born on April 23, 1925 in a homestead cabin near Kamiah, Idaho where he rode his horse four miles to go to a prairie school. He graduated in 1943 from Kamiah High School as the school's valedictorian, school editor, class president, point guard on the basketball team, and district boxing champion. In high school and later during college, his band, called the "Red Heads," played at dances throughout Idaho. He was a talented musician who could play multiple instruments. He served during WWII as a medic with the Navy. After the war, he met and married Doris Andersen to whom he was married for 63 years. The GI Bill gave him the opportunity to get a pre-med degree from the University of Idaho and his masters degree in education from the U of O. His first job was at Latham Elementary where he was the 8th grade teacher, bus driver and custodian. He retired from Latham as principal after 33 years. He often remarked how lucky he was to earn a living doing something he truly enjoyed. While at school, he would often help teach classes, especially math and science, to interact with the students. Special school projects included raising and releasing pigeons, studying wind currents with balloons, hosting track and field events among the schools, coaching "golden ball" basketball, and organizing science fairs. Cal also was very active in the community. He wrote articles on the history of the area and worked with many civic groups, including the Cottage Grove Hospital Board. He was flattered to be named First Citizen in 1973 and was the Grand Marshall for the Bohemia Day's parade. His curiosity was unlimited. When game shows became popular, he designed and built a jeopardy type electronic game inside a student school desk. He also built pinball games for science class to demonstrate electricity. To show learning behaviors, he created rat mazes... a project that ended when the rats got loose in the family home. He was an early environmentalist. Perhaps it came from hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada and hiking most all of the Lewis and Clark trail. He volunteered with EarthWatch and National Geographic on several projects, including turtle releases in St Croix, manatee watch in Florida, archeological digs in Mexico and Peru, surveying Manchu Picchu, eclipse photography in Australia, and mapping Stonehenge. A favorite family memory was the 1961 summer road trip across the United States. He piled the family, gramma, and the dog into the '56 Chev, pulling a small camp trailer through 42 states, including stops at most every national park, civil war battle site and state capital. Other summers the family joined him in an Idaho Forest Service camp where he dispatched Smoke Jumpers and delivered food to them by mule. Cal's life was full of accomplishments, and he leaves behind a legacy of self sufficiency and work ethic. He was an active father, loved the community and enjoyed many people in Cottage Grove. Cal's wife, Doris, and son, Gary predeceased him. He is survived by children Tom (Chris), Marcia (Gary) Trujillo, and niece, Jolyn Zeller; grandchildren Callyn, Jessie, Claire, Mike and Kim; great granddaughter, Molly; sister Sharon Hoffman (Salmon, Idaho) and many close nieces and nephews. Per his request, the family held a private ceremony in his memory. The family is appreciative of the care given to Cal by the Magnolia Village staff and thankful for the many wonderful and positive comments and well wishes from friends.
