Barley, Alece  
Alece Fay Evans Barley (Pearson) July 29, 1938 - November 14, 2014 Alece Fay Barley (Pearson), née Evans, passed away on November 14, 2014. Alece was born July 29, 1938 near St. Bayou, Mississippi. She was the 7th of 8 children born to Ira & Grace Evans. She was 76. Survivors include her eldest daughter Carmen Wood and her husband Roy Wood of Crawfordsville, her son Jeffry Pearson of Reedsport and her youngest daughter, Angela Barley and her husband Joshua Neuschwanger of Eugene, 6 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Three sisters, Lynn Moyer of Mapleton, Kathy Nixon of Florence and Jo Carlisle of Memphis, TN and one brother John W. Evans of Glenrose, TX, also survive her. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Harold James Barley of Veneta, her sisters Juanita Brooks of Florence, and Ann Callender of Brookhaven, MS, her brother Edward Evans of Pascagoula, MS, her daughter in-law Tracy Pearson of Reedsport, and her beloved cat Runt. Alece (or Fay as most people called her in her younger years) lived in Mississippi with her family up until the age of 14. Her family then visited Oregon, where her father fell in love with the beautifulness of the state. He moved the family to Mapleton and she too fell in love and became a true Oregonian, with just a twinge of a "southern accent". She graduated from Mapleton High School in 1957. In 1967 she attended the Eugene Barber College, and went on to become one of the first woman barbers in Lane County, as well as one of the fastest, a fact of which she was always proud. It was during this time that Alece met many people who would become her life long friends and it also led to her meeting her second husband Harold. Alece's first barbering job was at Santa Clara Barbershop, and then later she opened a barbershop in Harrisburg, and then moved the business to Junction City, (Junction City Barbershop) where she cut hair for 30 years. Alece lived in Veneta for over 35 years. She loved to look out across her property and see the frolicking deer and the turkeys, and sometimes she would curse a menacing crow. She had recently moved to Eugene, and was glad to be closer to her family and activities, and had made some new and amazing friends. Some of her favorite experiences were enjoying her cabin on Willamette Pass by skiing and snowmobiling, as well as just watching the snow fall while reading. She had also built a cabin up Deadwood Creek where she and her family would spend hunting season. Alece loved to transform the old into new, which was evident in the multiple remodels and building projects that she and Harold had done. She was constantly trying to feed people and would go out of her way to make a guest feel at home. Alece also enjoyed verbal jabbing with willing participants, spicy food, bacon, and laughing. There will be a graveside service on Friday, November 21, 2014 at 2:00 at Lane Memorial Gardens, 5300 W. 11th Ave. A celebration of life potluck will take place on Saturday, January 24th at noon at Viking Sal Senior Center, 245 West 5th St, Junction City, OR.

Richard Maxwell Brown 1927 - 2014 Dr. Richard Maxwell Brown, passed away on September 22, 2014. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, a brilliant scholar, dedicated teacher and a devoted Oregon Ducks fan. Dick was a caring and loving man, who was always positive and encouraging to others. He was loved and cherished by his family, and is greatly missed. Born in 1927 in Mobridge, South Dakota, the son of John Floyd Brown, a railroad worker, and Norma Lena McLary Brown, he was the youngest of three brothers. Growing up, Dick was a self-described bookworm and geography buff and devoured everything in the town library. During his summers, he spent time with family in Arkansas, and working on the Milwaukie Railroad section gang. In high school, Dick played football, basketball, and was on the track team. He planned to become a sports journalist and was an enthusiastic sports fan, as well as a rail fan, all his life. In 1946, about to be drafted, Dick volunteered for the US Army, and served a tour of duty that took him to Korea near the city of Daegu. During his year and a half in the army he rose to the rank of sergeant. In 1948, using GI education benefits, he began studies at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. There he met Estella Dee Cutler, a fellow student. They married while at Reed, and remained together for the rest of his life. After graduating from Reed, he attended graduate school at Harvard University, earning a PhD in history in 1959. Dr. Brown then became assistant professor of history at Rutgers University. Soon after, his wife Dee gave birth to a boy, Brooks, and a daughter, Laura. In 1967, the family moved to Williamsburg, Virginia where Dr. Brown taught at William and Mary. In 1977, the family moved to Eugene where he became the Beekman Professor of Northwest and Pacific History at the University of Oregon. There, along with the regular duties of a professor, he served as department chairman, worked with graduate students, some who would go on to have successful academic careers, served as president of the Western History Association, and authored his last book, the award winning No Duty to Retreat (1991).
