Cherie Bacon Fellows

March 26, 1936 – October 10, 2020

Cherie Bacon Fellows passed away on October 10, 2020 at the age of 84. She was born on March 26, 1936 in Walla Walla, Washington to the late Ray and Bessie Bacon.

She was raised in Milton Freewater, Oregon and attended the University of Idaho where she became a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority.

In her early work life, she was a school teacher. She had several other jobs along the way, but her 22-year career as an agent with State Farm was the most rewarding. She was recognized as an outstanding agent and earned the Crystal Excellence Award. The friends, co-workers and clients she made during this time gave her great satisfaction.

She loved her community and was firm Beaver Believer and volunteer. She was a fundraiser for Oregon State University Athletics and a member of Corvallis Rotary where she was a Paul Harris Fellow. She also worked for many years on the committee for the Corvallis Fall Festival.

Her favorite past times were travelling, shopping, and sports of any kind. She loved spending time at the Oregon coast in Neskowin with her beach friends and playing penny slots at the casino. She could often be heard yelling "Go Beavers" to anyone in orange and black!

She loved her family and leaves behind her sister Sunny (Tracey) Zickuhr of Seattle, Washington; her three children Pam (Andrew) Jamieson of Dallas, Texas, Mike Fellows (Theresa Daterman) of Albany, Oregon, Scott Fellows (Deanna Davis) of Allen, Kansas; and her six grandsons Parker (Carley) Jamieson, Pierce Jamieson, Austin Fellows, Mason Fellows, Jacob (Sarah) Fellows, and Joshua (Molly) Fellows.

Due to social distancing a memorial service will be held at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Oregon State Athletics at

I knew Cherie and her daughter Pam for many years. She was our insurance agent for most of our time in Corvallis and always had a smile on her face. She will be missed.

Blessings to you dear friends. Your Mom was one of the best when we were growing up and she had such a great heart handling us girls as we became teenagers in good old Custer, SD. She was a gem.

We are so sorry to hear about your mom and grandmother. We were neighbors of Joyce signer and enjoyed visiting with Cherie when she was at Joyce´s. She was also our State Farm agent. She was one of the first people we met when we moved here many years ago and she made us feel very welcomed. We know her laughter, kindness and inquisitiveness will be missed. Please let us know when her memorial service is.
