Marcella Hiebert Brown

June 4, 1927 - Jan. 8, 2013

Marcella Hiebert Brown

Marcella Hiebert Brown

Marcella Hiebert Brown, 85, of Dallas died Jan. 8.

She was born in Mountain Lake, Minn., Cottonwood County, to Nicolai and Marie Stoesz Hiebert.

She attended Mountain Lake grade school and moved to Oregon in 1940. Marcella attended Dallas High School and graduated from the first graduating class of Salem Academy in 1946.

On Oct. 26, 1952, Marcella married the love of her life, a Godly man, Leonard L. Brown, a marriage that was blessed for more than 60 years.

Cooking and working in the kitchen brought Marcella much happiness. She cooked for 14 years for a private hospital in Dallas and for four years at Dallas High School. After that she spent 18 years helping cook with a family friend who hosted the "country tours" on their farm.

Marcella had a passion for entertaining, hospitality, traveling, needlework and her backyard. After retiring she and Leonard hit the road in their recreational vehicle. They visited 49 of the 50 states and most of the Canadian provinces.

Marcella's biggest joy, though, was helping and serving her Lord and Savior in the churches. Marcella and Leonard attended Evangelical Bible Church in Dallas and the church they helped establish while snowbirding in Apache Junction, Ariz., for more than 25 years. This church has grown from a membership of 20 to more than 200 over the years. Marcella always believed in serving her Lord wherever she and her husband found themselves. She always believed in meeting the needs of others around her.

She was preceded in death by two infant sisters and a daughter-in-law, Julie Brown.

Survivors include her husband, Leonard; sons, Dennis (Marci) Brown and James Brown; five grandchildren; and extended family.

Celebration of Marcella's life is Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at Evangelical Bible Church in Dallas.

Contributions are suggested to Willamette Valley Hospice or Evangelical Bible Church in care of Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center, which handled arrangements.

Sandra Darlene Wineman

Sandra Darlene Wineman

Sandra Darlene Wineman

Loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and daughter, Sandra Wineman, went home to be with the Lord January 11th, 2013.

Sandra was born in Medford, Oregon. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Marvin. Also surviving are her mother, Evelyn Straus, her brother, Jack Straus, her three children, Greg Wineman (Lynette) Seattle area, Terri Wineman (Dick Figgins) Snohomish, and Denise Wallace (Brock), Monmouth, and twelve grandchildren: Ryan, Pat, Shanon, Zach, Amanda, Marielle, Lacie, Brock, Linzi, Branson, Jonathon, and Chloe, as well as three great grandchildren, Alan, Evelyn, Maddison, and another due in May, and three nephews, Rick, Dave, and Stephen.

Sandy was loved by all who knew her. She worked at Scenic Junior High for many years and was "mom" to many, many students that would stop by her windows to chat or the many who went through her lunch line. Many of "her kids" still remember her being so loving, giving encouragement when it was so needed. She grew up in Eagle Point where she met Marvin. After marrying in Central Point, Oregon, she went abroad following him when he was deployed in the Army. Upon their return from Europe, they settled in Gold Beach, Oregon for six years before relocating to Central Point where they lived for forty-one years. Upon retiring, they moved to Monmouth to be closer to children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. It was her desire to be as involved as possible in every aspect of her children`s, grandchildren's, and great grandchildren's lives. She attended more softball games, basketball games, football games, track meets, swim meets, and volleyball games than we can count, and she loved every minute of it. Everybody loved going to Grammy's house; they made cookies, shopped at the dollar store, and played all kinds of games because Grammy always made herself available for every little thing. She and Marvin enjoyed being snowbirds for years, making new friends and still keeping up with the many old friends. She will be missed more than words can express.

Memorial Service for Sandra is Thursday at 3 p.m. at Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service in Salem, Oregon.
