Doris M. Costello

Doris M. Costello, 96, of Monmouth died July 2 in Dallas.

Doris was born to Harley and Meda Patheal in Sioux Falls, S.D.

She married Edward D. Costello in 1939. They moved in 1951 to Oregon, where she raised her five children.

Doris was an employee at Oregon College of Education, now Western Oregon University, until she retired in 1977.

After retirement Doris enjoyed traveling alone or in a caravan on trips around Oregon, across the United States and to Mexico in her motor home. Doris had a love of books and research. She was able to recall and tell stories regarding her history, which included memories of the Great Depression, the plains of South Dakota and the Black Hills. She also enjoyed spending her free time working on crossword puzzles and in her yard.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward, in 1980 and daughter, Mollie J. Cutsforth, in 2009.

Jane Huff

April 18, 1918 - July 7, 2013

Jane Huff

Jane Huff

Jane Huff, 95, of Dallas died Sunday.

She was born to William and Nellie Kyniston in Medford.

In 1962 the family settled in the Dallas area, where Jane shared her talents and love with all who came her way. She was a master carver of wooden dolls, many of which are in various parts of the world. She also raised goats, poodles, and enjoyed quilting.

She could make a dress pattern out of newspaper and taught her children and grandchildren to sew at an early age. She was a great gardener who could make even a stick bloom; roses were her favorite. She cooked on a woodstove and was proud that she could still chop wood and climb hills until the age of 90.

While still raising her own children, she saw a need to help others and did foster care and baby-sat for a multitude of children in the surrounding areas.

Jane's life was centered on giving and teaching the value of forgiveness, loving one another and the power of prayer. One of her favorite sayings was "Pray for Miracles." She had a quiet, yet strong faith in her Lord. Her beautiful smile would light up any room. Hugs were an important part of communication in her later years.

She was preceded in death by four of her children.

Survivors include her 10 children, Audrey Huff, William (Cheryl) Huff, Michael (Mary) Huff, Julie (James) Bentley, Patrick (Florisell) Huff, Kathy Huff, Dorothy Huff, Joseph (Carolyn) Huff, Betty (Tom) Simpson and Angela (Steve) Brandt; and 113 grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
