June 18, 1917 -  January 24, 2016

Mertie Barber passed away on January 24, surrounded by family, at the age of 98 in Eugene, Oregon.

Mertie was born on June 18, 1917 in Miles City, Montana to Christian and Bessie Nelson.

Shortly thereafter, Elden and Mertie settled down in Springfield and raised their two daughters, Sharon and Judy, who would later go on to attend Springfield High School.

Mertie enjoyed spending time outdoors in her garden, where she particularly enjoyed harvesting berries and vegetables of nearly every variety over the years. She was a talented baker, and her pies and zucchini bread (made with fresh vegetables from her garden) were a family favorite. She also enjoyed bowling and playing card and table games at the Senior Center, which she would walk to weekly.

Mertie is survived by her daughters, Sharon Wilcox (Paul) of Eugene, and Judy Langdon, of Springfield; granddaughter Cheri Stephens of Springfield; grandsons Mark Langdon of Denver, Colorado, and Bryan Beagle of Springfield; and great-granddaughter Rianne Stephens of Beaverton. She is also survived by her sister Bea Schlegel (John) of Albany, and brother Robert Nelson of Eugene.

"
To all my friends and family, this note is to let you know we saw the Dr. yesterday they removed Dick's catheter and the 20 staples he had in him, some wounds are still in the healing stage but he is doing so much better and he is Cancer FREE! He doesn't have to go back for 3months for a check-up as the cancer was all confined to his prostate. Thank you all for your prayers and your acts of kindness such as the visits, the flowers and most of all the food!!
Our kids have been wonderful in making sure we had what we needed, wonderful daughter n laws and grandchildren. I could go on and on but I won't I just thank GOD for all his blessings, and the awesome friends at Crosspointe Baptists.
Blessings to all"

Barb was born to Delores and Theodore Simpson in Cottage Grove. After moving to Springfield, she graduated from Thurston High School in 1965. She then graduated from A Arts (Springfield) College of Beauty and worked as a hairdresser for over 20 years. She also took classes at Lane Community and Trend Colleges and worked in sales for more than 12 years.

Barb is survived by her husband of 43 years, Bennett, and their 2 sons, Aaron and Jason. Her sisters Beverly, Janet and Carol also survive her. Her brother Ron previously passed away. She also has several nieces and nephews with children. She knew the great joy of helping to raise her grandchildren, Caitlin and Brennan, and endured to see a third born, Wesley. She always loved children, and with sister Bev and their husbands, opened a store for children's clothing in Eugene. She also enjoyed paper crafts and later worked in sales for a stationary store.

Her husband Bennett lovingly cared for Barb during her long, debilitating battle with multiple sclerosis. Everyone who met her was refreshed by her good nature - she had the remarkable ability of not speaking poorly of anyone. In progression of her illness she exhibited great strength of character, never complaining about the discomfort and pain she experienced. It was her hope that in the future others not suffer any such illness.

A celebration of her life will be held on Monday, July 6, 2015 with viewing from noon and personal remembrances at 1:30 at the Top Chapel of Springfield Memorial Gardens, 7305 Main St. Contributions in her memory can be made to Race to Erase MS (http://www.erasems.org/tribute/).

From Roger Hansen:
       Kinda a super effort from my wife Patty today and normally wouldn't say squat about anything that happens on our "One Stump Ranch".  Today it was kinda wild and I feel compelled to share it.  As most friends know, Patty had big time surgery 4 months ago and due to severity, is still in recovery.  Today, the cattle in our mini feedlot were due to be processed with shots, wormed, ear tags and other bullshitnze.  I expected I would do most of the procedure and let my wife give shots.  Horse pucky, I missed a catch on a wild 500 pounder and she was on her own.   I was lucky and somehow got a rope on her.  She was unruly, buckin and kickin typical range animal.  Together we couldn't get enough slack in the rope to properly snub her down.  We got a hitch on a steel post, but still couldn't control her.  I noticed Patty was copping an attitude. No matter how hard we tried there was still about 12 foot of rope between her head and a steel post.  My cattle gal, worked her way down the rope, grabbed the heifer by the neck and got to work.  In spite of the buckin she somehow got an ear tag in the heifers ear.  Patty didn't quit.  After a kinda sorta wrestling match somehow gave shots and wormed her.  Never seen anyone work a range animal on a line in 60 years of working cattle.  Normally cattle are taken care of in a squeeze chute or on the ground.  Real proud of her even though I got fired running the catch!  Guess I really gotta be careful not to piss Patty off. Wow, I guess shes recovering a lot better'n I'd hoped for.  Please don't tell her doctor what she does to rehab!
