Hansen, Roger


Crescent, OR


We have three children and three grand children who are all doing very well.  I retired from the Albany Police Dept.
in '93, but was not happy living in the area where I had worked.  I was actually becoming somewhat of a recluse.  We decided to leave Albany in '98 and find a new way of life.
 My wife, Patty, quit her job at the local newspaper and we took a chance moving to Central Oregon.  We purchased
the old Crescent Horse and Mule Stables.  Our daughter and son-in-law  have a working cow ranch in the area and
we are constantly involved in the cattle operation.  Yes, we actually work cattle on horseback, occasionally roping and doctoring one when necessary.  Life's great!!!


Our family has grown in the past 10 years.  We now have three adult children (doing well ), five grand children (sometimes adult) and four great grand children, (working on getting kick started).  Sure nice to have them visit,
but even nicer to have them go home!  Still have our "one stump" cattle ranch, but desperately trying to retire from daylight to dark work. Tired of frozen calves in the house warming up in front of the fireplace.  We started getting

rid of our cattle last year and are continuing to sell cattle this year. Great time to retire because the cattle market is at an all time high and every load of cattle
we sell, we cannot believe the humongous checks.  Stretching out dispersing the herd to avoid paying too much taxes each year.  Will still get caught up in paying
a lot in taxes, but hope Uncle Sam won't take it all! Keeping fingers crossed to retire with a nice nest egg, not just the nest!!!  I'm sure everyone knows how
that is in today's economy?  Anyway, we are downsizing a bunch.  We got rid of 40 acres irrigated pasture a while back and will get rid an additional 140 acres
this spring.  Hate to downsize, but it's time to relax a bit.  My wife, Patty is still Post Master of Chemult and doing well.  Hope that bubble doesn't burst, so she
can keep us supported in the manner to which we have become accustomed!   Trusting in the Lord to watch over us during the remainder of life's journey. 
Looking forward to the Class of '61 Reunion.


Harju Jernberg, 

Olympia, WA

2001   For the past 25 years I have worked for Safeway Stores Inc. I retired in January of 1999.  Jerome and I,
just recently, finished constructing our new home.  All we have left to install, is the floor molding. Yeah!
I love gardening and have found a wonderful website where I trade plants and seeds from across the U.S.  This
has given me a chance to expand the garden beds with plants and flowers that the local nurseries don't sell. 
It's great fun!  Jerome thinks it's an addiction. I've even had him stop the car, at weird times, for seed gathering. 

2010   I can’t believe it’s been 50 years.  Wow!  I’m planning to attend the 2011 reunion this year so look
forward to seeing the ole classmates.

I lost Jerome, to cancer, 3 years ago but I’m still living in Brinnon, Washington and keeping busy with the
house and yard.  I tried tomatoes again and what a disaster.  The deer ate them and then a flock of birds
managed to beat me to my blue berry patch.  The bushes were loaded and ripe for eating and freezing. 
Boy was I upset.

I’m active in most of the organizations in our Community.  Seniors, Booster Club, VFW, PTO, and the
Soup Kitchen where we make soup every Monday and Friday.  Proceeds from the soup go to the local
Food Bank.  What’s great about the soup is; they are homemade and normally a favorite recipe.  I made
Knefla last time..and everyone loved it!

I have a  6 year old Grandson named Alex.  My three children, Kelly, Curtis and Michael live within 2 hours
of me but like most people…it would be great to see them more often.

 May 2014:   This is an update on my life after the 50 year reunion.  I have sold my Brinnon, Wa.  house and am currently living in Olympia, Washington where I have bought another home.  Between the rainy weather I’ve been working in the yard moving and adding different plants.  I have brought in 10 yards of mushroom compost which is now under two Cedar trees for my “new” shade bed.  So far things are going as well as to be expected.  I’m learning where things are and find I’m about three miles from almost everything, but only 2 miles from the train depot.  I’ve already taken a train trip to Springfield and it certainly beats driving when the weather is bad.

Tigard, OR




August 2006    My husband, Louis, and I live in Tigard and celebrated our 44th anniversary in February 2004. 
Our oldest daughter, Sue, lives in Tualatin with her husband and son.  Our younger daughter, Jenna, lives in

South Eugene
with her husband.  She graduated from the U of O in 1993 and enjoyed Eugene so much she stayed there. 

I retired from Tektronix, Inc. in June 2004. After 43 years as an administrative professional, I decided it
was time to do something different.  Currently I do volunteer work at
Legacy Meridian Park Hospital in Tualatin. 

Louis retired the end of April, 2006, and we enjoy our leisure time by doing whatever strikes our fancy.  One
of our favorite things is visiting the many wonderful places in the Northwest.

My life has changed a great deal since our last reunion.  Most recently, I lost my husband, Louis, to cancer on April 4, 2011, eight days before his 69th birthday.  We celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary on February 12.  We have two wonderful daughters:  Sue (48) and Jenna (41).  Sue’s son Nate (15) is our only grandchild. 

I was a Certified Professional Secretary (CPS) and worked as an executive assistant for 45 years before retiring in 2006.  The last 23 years of my working career were at Tektronix, Inc., supporting the President and a Vice President in the Law Department. 

Louis and I shared an interest in classic cars, and over the years owned several, including a ’57 Chevrolet HT which he had restored (including the body work and re-painting it himself).  We also enjoyed camping and trail riding on our Suzuki motorcycles and later on bicycles.   

I now keep busy with computer games, reading, and visiting with our daughters and their families.  I also did volunteer work at a local hospital and the Tigard Public Library prior to Louis’ illness. 

Two of my closest friends from high school, Aggie Gates and John McCullough, have also passed away.

     Bill and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 6th, 2010.  It was a wonderful time. 

Our children gave us a party with 150 guests.  It is hard to believe it

has been 50 years since our graduation.  We have a son and a

daughter, and 5 grandchildren and 3 treats.  We lost one of our sons,

 Trever, when he was 17 years.  I feel so blessed to have my family live close.

     Our lives have centered around our family, friends and Church. Bill is an Associate Pastor and I lead singing at our church.

     We have taken mission trips to Mexico and the country of Belize, where we have helped build church buildings.  Our last trip was in 2009.  We also spent time in the Caribbean, Playa Del Carmen Mexico.  In 2004, my husband was awarded truck driver of the year, with the Ryder Corp.  where he worked for Borden Chemical for 40 years.  We received a trip to Florida, where he was given his award, plus a cruise to the Caribbean.

     We live in Deerhorn by the McKenzie River & golf course.  We built a home here 18 years ago.  I golf some and do gardening.

     We raised my sister until she was married.  Then we finished raising two of our grandchildren, like so many have.  We enjoy spending time with all of them and their spouses.   We are planning a trip back to Disney World for the third time, in a couple of years, with the whole family.  We are in great health, even though I had a knee replacement last year.

After working in construction for forty-two, I am truly enjoying retirement.  My favorite things are fishing, hunting, reading and spending time with my children and their families.  I also enjoy getting together with my OLD classmates every year at O’Dell Lake.  We have such a great time.

     My wife, Barbara (Schnell) Harris, and I will celebrate our forty-eighth wedding anniversary this year.  We have a daughter, Lori, and she lives in Fremont, California with husband Doug Becker.  They have a twelve-year-old daughter, Olivia, and a nine-year old daughter, Quinn.  Our son, Christopher, lives in Portland with wife Tyra and they have a three-year-old son James Russell.  I also have seven remaining siblings still living in the Springfield area and we get together nearly every week to play cards and catch up on family news.  I can’t complain,  life has been good to me so far.

I'm really enjoying reading about all our classmates on this great website!  Hope lots of you contact us thru
our e-mail. 
  For the past 25 years we've lived in Drain, and just recently built a new house. I help my husband with our
consulting forestry business, we have two children, and a three-year old granddaughter who is the joy of our
lives! I am the school board chairman for our school district, also chairman of our library board, like to read
(just formed a book club), golf, garden, and sew. The highlight of my life recently was a trip last spring to
Scotland, England, and Wales. Hope to see you all at the reunion!
Retirement is o.k.—no more committees that I don’t want to serve on, no more
doing anything I don’t want! It seems we’re losing more friends and
relations, though, as “health issues” seem to be prominent now. One of the
highlights of the past 10 years of my life has probably been surviving a
brain aneurism and blood clots in the lungs in 2008. I thank God every day
for excellent health, and regard each day as a special gift. We need to live
each day as fully as possible! Go out saying “damn, that was a good ride!”.

Our granddaughter is now 13, and still the bright spot of our lives! She, my
daughter, and I are going to Portugal later this summer for a “girl’s
We are doing more traveling now that retirement is upon us. I’ve enjoyed a
leaf trip to New England, two trips to Tennessee to visit my “roots”, and
this summer plan to go fishing in Alaska. I still enjoy quilting, reading,
golf, ballroom dancing, and doing anything with friends and family. I’m
really looking forward to the reunion!

    Joined the Air Force after graduation and returned in late '63; started trade in plastering in 1963 and contracting
in 1967; married Christine in 1968, lucky enough to have 3 children and 9 grandchildren that all live in the Eugene/
Springfield area...how fortunate can a guy get.  We recently moved from Eugene back to Springfield near the
McKenzie river.  As I enjoy fishing the Diamond Lake trip is looked forward to each year.  Thanks to Dave Sears
and Jim Baumgartner for their work on making the Diamond Lake fishing trip so successful each year.  It's a great
bunch of guys, hope more of you will attend in the future.

     I'm enjoying life with Chris, my children and grandchildren.  I'm working at something I enjoy with no intentions
of retiring -- maybe backing off a bit in years to come though to make more time to catch "the big one".
    God has truly watched over us through those difficult times as well as the great times.  Thanks to those working
so hard on this and past reunions, looking forward to seeing you there!







Haugen Grover, Linda

Bottineau, ND

CURRENT ACTIVITIES: Since we returned from Africa in '98 because of health reasons, Gord and I are caring for my mother, a stoke victim, here in Gordon's home town of Bend. Gordon is currently a roofing contractor and I'm tutoring students in the French language.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PAST 40 YEARS: Most definitely, our missionary work in Africa for 26 years has left an indelible mark. Viewing life through the eyes of other cultures is enlightening and enriching; it obviously transports us mentally from Oregon to the "bigger picture" of life. While we here have an abundance materially, there is much suffering in the world, and although a multitude of stop-gap measures has been employed to alleviate it, truly God's heavenly kingdom government is the only realistic answer. It's that message that we were privileged to teach those happy and humble people. (Matt. 24:14)

Linda and her cousin


Gordy and I moved here to Bottineau, North Dakota, in November 2002 not long after my mom passed away. It's a small prairie community 13 miles south of the Canadian border that boasts a community college where I work part-time in the Financial Aid Office and teach French. Since my mom and dad both are originally from North Dakota and Gordy's parents are from the area of the NoDak/Minn border where he was also born, we feel very much at home....like roots! Gordy is also semi-retired and we both have been very active in the volunteer ministry as we did in Africa to make known God's kingdom. We study the Bible with people who are searching for answers to the bizarre events of these last days. Our small congregation is like a loving family that we dearly love. Gordy and I enjoy good health but we still get stiff and achy when we don't exercise....he loves shoveling snow and I love watching him!!

I'm sorry to say that we won't be able to attend the reunion with you this time.. we're planning to visit our old friends in Africa this fall. There will be a dedication of the new branch facilities where we used to live and we hope to share with them.
We wish you all the best...and hope that you'll ask the next Witnesses that come to your door to explain the kingdom!

"Haven't quite adapted to "senior" status yet, but I sort of grew up with my kids, (they are both over 40.) Have been in auto body trade for 40 yrs. also. Does anyone truly retire?  Hobbies have been following drag racing, and for past 12 yrs. been a member of a metal detecting club, where I found my wife of past 10 years: truly a real treasure.
I'm currently building a nostalgia race car to fill the time for the 3rd childhood. Hoping for good things for all in the future.
OK, so here we are, we know the time is short and someday we'll hang up our tools, spatulas and dandelion diggers. So we came with nothing and will be leaving with nothing, and all is vanity. What's the point of it all. I believe it is to find the Way, the Truth, and the Life in and through the person of Jesus Christ. And the time is now, because the train is about to leave the station. Please climb aboard.

   Also did some volunteer work for troubled teens at Christian Family Institute shelter home. (very gratifying). I have 6 grandkids but don't get back to OR too see them as often as I would like. I live in a small friendly farming/cattle town in eastern CO and love it here. Have been retired for two yrs. and my hobbies are old cars and am currently fixing an old hay buck rake (used in the 50,s) to run on wood gas power instead of gasoline. Hey...it's interesting.

Hello friends,  I marvel at all the twists and turns our lives have taken us.  It has been an amazing thing to read your stories and see your pictures.  I was overwhelmed at the fondness I felt for those "kids" (our album pictures).  We were, for the most part, really sweet kids I think.  I did not recall any bad memories unless you count sweating through the soles of my shoes in Algebra because I was so nervous (I left footprints).  It was at Springfield High and I forget the teacher's name but she was old and scary.  Here is my life in a nutshell:   I have been to 4 colleges and still don't have a degree although I have a teaching certificate as a Waldorf Teacher, for those that are familiar with that philosophy of education.  I have been employed by the Washington State Dept. of Corrections for the last 20 years and I am desperately ready to retire but don't think I can for another 2 years.  I live in Yakima, Wa and I am married to Paul Dever from Spokane. My religious affiliation is Christian Orthodox and I am a member of the Antiochian Orthodox Church in Yakima.   I have a daughter in Bend, Or.,  a son in Walla Walla, Wa. and a daughter in O'Fallon, IL.  They have produced 4 grandchildren with another is due in December.  I bounced between Portland and Albuquerque several times for the first 10 years after leaving Springfield;  Hilo, Hi (4 years), Sacramento, Ca (2 years);  Pahoa, Hi (3 years);  Walla Walla, Wa (9 years);  Snohomish, Wa (7 years); Yakima, Wa (5 years).  I hope to retire in beautiful ???? (not a clue as yet). 

October 30, 2009
I retired August 2008.  We are still looking for a place to move but decided to wait until the economy settled a bit.  Still waiting.........  but while we wait, our family grows:  Between Paul and I we now have 7 children 13 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.  Since all but two of the families live in different towns, we spend a lot of time on the road just trying to see everyone at least once a year.  This past summer, we visited Paul's daughter in Ohio and went on to take in Gettysburg, Antietam, Harper's Ferry and Niagara Falls.  It was a great trip and I did not want to stop.  Born and raised in the Northwest, I was surprised at how soft and green the Midwest and East look with their deciduous trees and their robin's egg blue skies.  We returned by way of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  It was beautiful but suffering from the downturn and everything was for sale.  Most recent trip was to Monterey, CA by train to attend Grandparent's Day for granddaughter's 5th grade. 







    JoBeth and her husband at Niagara Falls

In August we moved to Oregon City and bought a house which we share with my daughter, her husband and her two children,
aged 12 and 3.  We have the lower level (no stairs) and they live upstairs.  We are in a forest on 1 acre and enjoy the chipmunks, squirrels and birds that play on the wood stacked outside our window.  By the way, I have gotten so good at splitting wood with an axe that Paul said he is thinking of hiring me out!  We are happy to be back on the West side in the green.  My daughter from Bend will also be moving to Clackamas County as soon as she can find a place.  Her daughter is enrolled in high school in Oak Grove (Milwaukie).  She has also been staying with us during the week.  Our family continues to increase as we await the arrival of our 5th great grandchild in Spokane any second now.

My husband of 28 years, Paul, passed away on this past Friday at 1:00 pm. It was very sudden; he was in the hospital lobby delivering a report to his doctor when it happened so help was there instantly. We are having a service Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 pm. It will be a military service at the Willamette National Cemetery followed by a celebration of his life at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Clackamas, Oregon.

Just a note. On Nov 3, 2014 I had triple bi-pass surgery at McKenzie Willamette Hospital. The Doctor, his team, and all of the nurses, both male and female, and  the staff were wonderful to me. It was as positive an experience as this type of surgery could possibly be. Based on my experience I  would recommend their Cardiology unit to anyone. I was released from the hospital on Nov. 8 and by my Surgeon on Dec. 3rd. Thankfully, at that time, I was also released to drive again. Not being able to drive was the one thing that was making me "crazy, not that there was really any place I needed to go."  I started Cardio. rehab. in Dec. and am now down to one day a week. I walk at least forty minutes a day, every day, and hope to add to that by starting to work out at an area gym. I feel wonderful, better then I have in several years. Now I know why!

I did my stint in the army during the Viet Nam war but was lucky enough to stay in Virginia as a chauffeur for a Brigadier General.  Jan joined me there and we lived in and near Williamsburg for two years.  After returning home I  spent most of my working days with the timber industry.  I am retired now and play all day when I'm not busy maintaining our acre of land.  I enjoy the U of O football and basketball games.  GO DUCKS!!  We spend most of our summers motor home traveling.


    Too much fog and rain for me in Oregon!!  Jan and I still own our Springfield home but also have a winter home in Arizona.  We really like the winter skies with sunshine in Arizona.

    We continue to travel by motor home.  In 2010 we took a 2 1/2 months trip through Canada and Alaska.  Saw a lot of beautiful country and experienced the amazing summer solstice.  Our warmest weather was at the Arctic Circle.  That was a surprise to us.

    Enjoy the camp outs, both summer and winter, with the classmates of SHS and THS.  Class of ‘61 continue to be our closest friends

     I’m still a big DUCK fan!  Really enjoyed the 2010 football season.   GO DUCKS!!!!

We moved to the Seattle area when my husband, Frank, was sent here for his last assignment before his retirement from the Army. We are so fortunate to have settled in such a great part of the country. I worked as a school librarian, and Frank taught high school. We have been retired for several years and love it. Frank has an airplane, and we have made a number of cross-country trips. I took lessons for a while, but never got the courage to land the plane, so am content to be a passenger.

We have one daughter, Leslie. She went to Washington State and then moved to Colorado Springs for work. Now she is in San Antonio designing web pages for USAA, a financial company. We exchange visits often.

We enjoy travel; we’ve spent quite a bit of time in Europe, especially France. Now we are exploring some of the great cities in the US.

After High School, I spent two years in the Army. Graduated from Southern Oregon University in 1970 with a better GPA than Bill  Guempelein or Bob Jones. :-) Then toured Europe with Jim Loyd (a year below  us) and attended graduate school at SOU where I met Susan who is currently Principal at Lincoln Elementary School in Ashland. We have two daughters, Jillian 24, Jacksonville, OR, and Kerry, 21, Fairbanks, AL. We live in Ashland in the only house we have ever owned with our two vicious and destructive cats, Hank and Lilly. I  retired from Budweiser a year ago and am now devoting my life to golf. Merwin Logan look out. Enjoyed great fishing times at Diamond Lake for the past 24 years, thanks to Jim Baumgartner and David Sears. But for those of you who may be considering joining the group next year, I recommend Rich Tennent as the best roomy because he does not snore.

 LIFE is a "Good Thing".... As George Burns said, "When you wake up , check the "obit's", if your name is not in there, you can get out of bed!" I like to add, And then have a happy day.
   There have been plenty of highs, and lows in my life, but it's all about "The Journey", right?
   I have 3 wonderful children and 5 most excellent grandchildren.
I was a stay- at -home Mom ,(the most rewarding job I could have ever been offered) volunteered, and made cookies by the truck loads.
I now am working part-time at Reed & Cross. It's like a party every day.
   I hope to spend the rest of my life learning, and of course having fun. You know, of course, "Girls just wanta have fun".
   I hope you all are having a great life, and remember "count your blessings, NOT your troubles."

      I really don't have anything to contribute. I live in "my own little world----but it’s ok, they know me here"

      And as for a picture...I've been told women my age are invisible, so all you would get is a blank piece of paper.

      I do send my love and prayers to the class, and hope they find peace and love in their lives. Shirl
