Mary T. Gautreaux
Oct. 17, 1947 - Sept. 20, 2019
Mary Gautreaux died Sept. 20, 2019, leaving a legacy of problem-solving and a love of wild places.
Born 1947, raised in Richmond, Mary went west by 1970 and left behind her debutante youth. By the late 1970s, Mary had settled in Oregon's rural Blue Mountains and then supported her family with seasonal Forest Service work. Mary went on to earn a Master's degree in Public Policy while also raising her family. Starting in 1994, Mary passionately served Oregon and Oregonians under Senator Ron Wyden, rising to be the Senator's Deputy State Director.
Mary is survived by her children, Ryder, Myria, Callie and Lucas; and her five grandchildren; as well as countless friends, from the streets of Portland to the halls of Congress.
In her honor, donations may be made to Housecall Providers and Soul River.
