Her other very close friend was Dorothy whom she met in her earlier years in Salem. They were so close. One time, probably aroundDorothy had to get Corki her birthday present. Since her Birthday was the 21st day in December, it happened to be snowing that day, but Dorothy drove through the snow to deliver it.
What a joy that was. Corki took care of her mother for many years moving in with her eventually. She showed much love and concern for her. Although this was a lot of work for Corki, she did it on her own, asking for little help. She loved her mother.
Corki had a love for her church, Redeemer Lutheran Church. She joined in many of the activities and I remember when she told me she was sharpening the pencils for the Sunday service. Every week she would buy special pencils with sayings and pictures on them for the church service on Sunday.
She would make sure they were sharpened. At that time she was living on Fisher Road. When she came back she was determined to sell her house. So a search for homes landed her on Sunflower Way. She had such wonderful neighbors. She painted her house green, and the church built her a sidewalk on the side of her house. I will always remember her sitting on her bench in front of her home. The respite program there is a blessing.
It was for people with memory difficulties. For 5 hours they would have social activities with others, lunch, snacks, singing, doing crafts and exercise.
Thank you Among Friends. In the last 2 years Corki had been living at a care facility Harmony House. Her last costume at Halloween was as a Princess. The love that they show to the residents is amazing.
They knew her favorite color was Pink so they dressed her in pink and any craft activity they did would include Pink. Bless you Harmony House. Vicki — daughter oh, mommi was soooo special.
That did send me in a direction as I had horses for 40 years. I have a picture in my mind of her sitting tall in the audience during a show with a very large smile on her face. Such a precious mommi who showed her love for me. I miss her so. I love you mommi. Jamie granddaughter - I am very blessed to have had such a caring and thoughtful grandma in Corki.
We had many great times together, and I fondly remember time during my childhood in the kitchen of the house at Fisher Road.
Gram taught me how to slow cook beans with a ham hock, and we enjoyed sharing fresh farmers cheese right off the cutting block - and to this day one of my favorite ways to relax is by spending time in the kitchen. She was always ready to support me, and has been a stable presence in my life. Gram was very much loved and respected by her family and close friends, and will be dearly missed. Being the perfectionist that I am, this was the highest praise! But in all seriousness, I believe what she taught me is that you only see the best in the people you love.
She was always so happy to just be with her family and spending time together. I can only hope to one day be the kind and generous woman that she was every day. When growing up, she would get us grandkids baskets every Easter. Jamie would usually get a basket that had a bunny theme, Kali would get a sheep or something like that, and I would get the duck or whatever other animal was available.
She was that bright light at family gatherings, always with a sunny smile and a warm, welcoming hug. In her later years, while she might not have always remembered me, whenever she saw my face she would smile big and open her arms for a hug. There was never a doubt that I knew I was loved. A Christmas tradition was for Grandma to buy us a Hallmark Christmas ornament annually. I am still going on my puppy love hallmark series and the 12 days of Christmas ornaments. I look forward to decorating the tree this year, and in years to come, knowing that when I put those ornaments up, I will always think of her and know that she will continue to be with us in spirit.
Jeri daughter-in-law - Some may wonder why after knowing and loving my mother-in-law Corki for 45 years I never called her Mom. She was the grandma who spoiled my girls, bought them frilly dresses, gave me family recipes for things like Texas Hash or Gunky Gunk, mailed cards to us for every holiday, and would read aloud the cards we gave her — crying over the sentimental ones!
She just wanted to have fun, so we went on field trips. We went to Riverfront Park, checked out the sternwheeler and art and walked across the pedestrian bridge and watched the river flow… with the grand finale always of riding on the Riverfront Carousel!
We went to the pumpkin patch, and I took her picture in the funny cutouts or with the goats in the petting zoo, and we search to find the perfect strange shaped gourd to take home. Many of these pictures will be on a slideshow after her service at Redeemer Lutheran. Love you forever Corki. Her grandchildren Jamie and her husband David, Kali, and Sami. She is also survived by her special Brother and Sister-in-law Billi and Karen.
She was loved, respected and admired by her entire family and will be greatly missed by all. Funeral services will be Friday December 7, at In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Redeemer Lutheran Church, or the charity of your choice.

Chris would always jump to the chance to help even though and we knew it the pain in his feet was devastating.
Each game he took to heart and would gladly root against all the other teams in his division… and it sure is working this year To say Chris will be missed would be a travesty of the English language. Chris will always be in our hearts, he is in a better place and now free from pain.

By following this link or clicking on the picture below, readers may view a gallery of Mike Bade's photos. The Host region for the meet was the Detroit Region, who started organizing the meet four ago to prepare for the late July meet, this included the current POC President Russ Nardi, who had a hand in the preparations of the meet.
Of course they all asked about our own, Bill Call, who had made quit the impression on everyone on both tours. Four members of the Cascade Region traveled to the meet. We also walked around the park like setting and looked at the beautiful rhododendrons, fir trees and other native plants as well as many pieces of religious art. After our tour of the Grotto, we went to the Olive Garden near Mall for lunch.
It was a perfect day for the tour. Follow this link or click on the picture to see more photos of the trip. On our way to the meet we toured the Great Lakes around Wisconsin and Michigan, toured the Northern Peninsula of Michigan, and we rode the magnificent old ferry, the SS Badger on a four hour ferry ride across Lake Michigan.
On the way home, we took the modern and much faster Lake Express ferry across Lake Michigan. We also detoured to Reno, Nevada on our return trip to visit some old family friends. Total round trip was 6, miles; 15 states; 24 days. We saw a lot of magnificent country and met many truly wonderful people.
On two different occasions we decided to drive all night in order to avoid degree weather in Utah, Nevada and California. In these instances, we would wait for the sun to go down before proceeding on our trip.
On the all night run between Reno and Roseburg, we took a roundabout route to avoid the heavy smoke from forest fires. We experienced a number of rain storms on our trip, the fiercest of which was in Michigan. Then there was that sand storm in northern Nevada. In addition to the sand, tumbleweeds were flying across the road, several of which hit our car.
The biggest challenge to our Plymouth was the many long and steep mountain grades. Quite a number of these grades required miles of driving in second gear at 30 miles per hour. Plymouth built great cars. There is more to tell, but I told Robin that I could be succinct. It was a great adventure. July 14, — Philomath Frolic D. The business coupe is familar to CPPC members; the sedan, a fairly recent garage find, will be less so.

There's a parade, and a street fair. Registration for the car show includes a full meal choice of beef or chickenand live music plays all day. Gary Rusher came home with an award for his Plymouth U business coupe.
Plymouth, the bread-and-butter make of Chrysler Corporation sincehas been an orphan make sinceso the reward was appropriate. We were glad to see Gary Rusher's Plymouth U Coupe on the field — the first time it has been out of the garage in a couple of years. This Orphan Meet was the last, at least in current form. See pictures by Ed Salia and Gary Rusher at this link. Dave and Linda Surmon met us at the museum.
The story of Aurora is unusual in two ways. First, instead of isolated settlers, the Aurora group deliberately brought an entire town, from blacksmith to brass band, and they had an immediate economic impact on the territory. Second, the town operated as a commune for the first 25 years of its existence. Curator Patrick Harris treated the group to a tour of the 5-building museum complex in Aurora. Around lunchtime, the group drove to the Stauffer-Will Farm, south of Aurora, where Cheryl Burks, an Aurora Colony Historical Society volunteer, had the woodstove going and biscuits in the oven.
Special treatment, because Cheryl is a friend of Donna Bade's, and perhaps because Robin is one of "those" Wills. The day was special because it was the 40th anniversary of the date when Elaine Huber bought her Plymouth Satellite. Jim Wheat took lots of pictures, and they're at this link. We were happy to meet new members Clark and Diane Taylor from Washougal.
Bob Maker drove his Viper powered Studebaker Sedan Delivery and joined our small but enthusiastic group. Don Smith joined us at Monitor driving his beautiful Dodge Sedan. The tulip fields were absolutely stunning even with the blowing wind and muddy rows.
Boots were a very popular wardrobe accessory. We did some shopping no wind in the crowded gift shop! We actually had no rain, and the wind did not deter us from gazing at the incredibly beautiful fields of rainbow like colors of tulips.
Our three cars brought lots of attention — and the possibility of three new members. Gary Rusher, the tour host, couldn't remember when it started but it was a long time event when he took over as chief in They are still at it loud and strong.
This lady has a large 40X96 car barn with a nice collection of about 10 cars, but a lot of other wonderful stuff as well, including an entire replica Coke-a-Cola soda shop. The car collection tended toward Fords modified to go fast, but the hostess' mom's T-Bird was there, looking glorious, and also a prize-winning LaSalle convertible.
The hosts requested that, due to privacy concerns, no pictures of their collection appear on the Internet, and we're not identifying them by name, either.
All we took away was memories. The picture was taken in the parking lot of the fire station at Brooks, after the CPPC gang had done serious damage to an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. We had 15 members and a few friends of Tom Shepherd attend the early morning visit. Frank was a successful businessman, who owned an auto parts business and property in Southeast Portland. He and his brother had an interest in Pre-War toys, padlocks and banks, just to mention a few of the thousands of treasures that are on display at there museum.
Frank tells the story that he and his brother would go, most weekends to toy conventions and bring home suitcases of toys and then go the next weekend, during the conventions season, year after year.
Click here or on the picture to see the gallery of Mike Bade's photos. The toy museum is full of some of the most amazing cast iron early pre-war toys, one might ever see, not just one or two, but groups of the same type of toy.
It is hard to know where to start looking, at the start, just when you have though you saw everything, there is more to see, which is only part of Frank and his brothers collection. Frank has enlisted the help of his family to keep the museum open. A recent family tragedy in lateleft the museum in limbo, not able to be open regularly.
Efforts of find other family members to help keep the museum open are forthcoming. Frank has enlisted his grand children to help with cataloguing, unseen inventory and hopefully, you may be able to enjoy even more in the future. For sure we will have to have another visit to Kidds in the future, or you should try to go on your own, take the grandchildren.
The museum is registered as non profit, future generations will be able to enjoy Frank and his brothers treasures. February 24, — Stan Adams collection of cars and petroliana By Mike Bade The second stop on the February 25 tour the Stan and Sheryl Adams car Museum, as he calls it, a mile drive from our first stop. Stan Adams and his wife Sheryl are native Portland residents.
Stan and his wife had a successful tire business on the East side of downtown Portland. After selling their business they have enjoyed being able to collect a variety of collector and high performance vehicles and automobillia.
They have carefully selected cars that are of interest to them and now have approx. They also have an amazing collection of restored gas pumps, gas signs, peddle cars, vintage bicycles; filling their museum from floor to ceiling, carefully displayed for maximum effect. There are not any collections that would rival Stand Sheryl's in the Portland area, that I know of.
Of course there is are many back stories, as to how each item was acquired, which Stan shared with the group, too much delight.Blacksmith Shop at Antique Powerland
