Lenore (Durning) Fehrenbacher
June 13, 1920 - February 8, 2016
Lenore (Durning) Fehrenbacher, formally of Caldwell, Idaho, passed away at Redmond Heights Care Center, Redmond, Washington, on February 8, 2016, at the age of 95.
Lenore was born in Stanfield, Oregon, to Rachel Hazen and Chester DuPuis as the third youngest of two brothers and one sister. Her parents both died at a young age and their children lived with foster parents in Pendleton, Oregon, until they graduated from high school. All were accomplished musicians, especially Lenore who played the piano and organ all of her life. She also had a beautiful singing voice.
Lenore lived in Caldwell for many years and was active in the Caldwell Women's Golf League, St. Mary's Catholic Church and several bridge clubs.
Lenore was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry Fehrenbacher, brothers, Lt. Col. Robert C. DuPuis and Edward DuPuis.
She is survived by her children, Anna Rae Newton of Kirkland, Washington, Mike Durning of Caldwell, sister, Donna Jean Hack of Kennewick, Washington, six grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren.
Lenore was a very independent woman who took pride in her work ethic and her music. One of her joys was gardening or as she called it, digging in the dirt.
Internment will take place in Portland, Oregon. There will be no other services.
Mother is now at peace, having led an active and full life.
