Beals, Wylma  
Wylma "Mickey" Alice Jackson Beals May 21, 1915 - June 23, 2016 Her uncle invented the street sweeper. Her father was a railroad man who never sat down. Wylma Alice Jackson Beals, (nicknamed Mickey for a popular musical of the era) was our Mom and Grandma. She was 101 years old May 21, and until recently, still played the piano. Mickey died in Eugene June 23. She is survived by three daughters, four grandchildren and four great-grand- children. Mickey was an only child, doted on by all around her, spoiled and indulged until the divorce of her parents when she was eight. Things changed dramatically for her then. The Depression was not kind to a child of "divorced" parents and she wore the shame of it to school in second-hand clothes as she attended the one-room Bogart school, once located off Coburg Road in Eugene. The building was one of the first schools in Lane County, Oregon. There is now a public park, dedicated by her, behind the Grange Hall on Willakenzie Road. Mickey's new step-dad, John Bogart, was from Oregon Trail pioneer stock, the original land grant family being well known as successful farmers (and whiskey brewers during Prohibition). Mom got an old, used piano and had a few lessons at 25 cents each, then by 1926 the money ran out. She was a quiet girl, always reading and playing music by ear and note. After becoming a war bride to Russell Mathews Beals in 1939, she took her musical gift far around the world. Her marriage to a soldier set the tone for her life of continuous moving; over 33 times in 30 years, with family in tow. We lived on Army bases both in the States and on Okinawa. Whenever Dad received orders, she would pack up the meager belongings and trudge on. Mom drove solo with three small girls, crisscrossing the U.S.A. from New Jersey to San Francisco. The Beals family lived in many different rentals and never dreamed of a settled life. Mickey's Army husband would rent pianos whenever possible and she would entertain military brass and vagabond alike, zoning out of reality and into her own private musical world. Until recently she still did that; sitting at a piano in local assisted living facilities, the Willamalane lunchroom or her own memory care home. She would go on musical journeys, hour after hour. If you named a song, she could play it, no matter what the era or style. Hum a few bars, and she'd play it! Amazing! Upon arriving at advanced elder care, she wowed the crowd by playing for over four hours. It was like something out of the movie, "Awakening" where desperately elderly patients are brought back to life by music; a true miracle of the spirit and testament to the power of music. Mom did a remarkable job of living, mostly because she had music in her head, even as the distant vagabond memories continued to fade. She gave her gifts of piano, painting and cooking to each of her three daughters and now is undoubtedly entertaining the troops up in Heaven. Play us a tune Mickey!!

Bishop, Clarence M.  
March 17, 1937 - June 17, 2016 The hardest part of losing someone isn't saying goodbye, but learning to live without them. Clarence Bishop was born and raised in Rosemead, CA.

Clarence attended Concordia College in Oakland before transferring to Concordia Seminary in ST Louis where he studied Theology. Clarence lettered in three sports while attending College.

Clarence was hired by the El Monte Fire Department in 1963. In 1969 Clarence was hired by the Eugene Fire Department and relocated his family to the Eugene area. Clarence retired from the Eugene Fire Department in 1992 capping a 30-year career as a Firefighter. Following his retirement, Clarence took a full time job with St Vincent De Paul from 1995 thru 2001. Clarence specialized in all manners of fabrication and building maintenance. Clarence retired from St Vincent De Paul in 2001 but remained on their manufacturing and recycling board until 2014, totaling 19 years with the company, 13 of which he volunteered. Clarence fully retired in 2001, settling in Elkton, OR along the banks of the Umpqua River. Clarence was an avid fisherman, hunter and true outdoorsman his entire life.

Clarence has 22 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Clarence had a twinkle in his bright blue eyes and a special knack for turning strangers into friends. He blessed his family with love and laughter all of his days. Clarence touched many lives during his 79 years on this earth and will be sorely missed by all those he came in contact with. A celebration of life will be held on July 3rd at 11:00 am at the Elkton Community Education Center located at 15850 State Highway 38 W, Elkton, OR 97436.
