Regina Ann Hancock Love

1948 - 2015

Regina Ann Hancock Love, age 67, passed away August 28, 2015 at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) in Portland, OR after a courageous battle with Leukemia. Her family was honored to assist her during that time, and felt truly blessed to be with her at its conclusion as she embarked on a new journey. As all who knew and loved Regina can attest, she really did enjoy a good road trip.

Her parents, Joe and Dorsy Hancock, welcomed Regina into this world on March 27, 1948 in Snowflake, AZ and knew from the start that Regina was wonderful. A Springfield resident for 66 years, Regina started her career of selflessly helping others as a candy striper at McKenzie Willamette Hospital. Regina, a Springfield High alumni, graduated in 1969 as a registered nurse from the Sacred Heart School of Nursing. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

On August 31, 1968, she married her sweetheart, David Love, and together they established a loving home that would be known as "The Love Inn". Their blessed union would last for 42 years until his death in 2010. They enjoyed decades of U of O football games & track meets, sharing their season tickets with so many.

Regina's joy was helping and serving others, and she volunteered throughout her life. Her nursing career lasted over 45 years, most recently at Gateway Assisted Living. She donated over 100 units of blood at the Lane County Blood Bank. She clocked in over 1700 volunteer hours at the Springfield Public Library, and received the President's Volunteer Service Award. The Springfield Elks were blessed by both her and David's service, with David becoming Elk of the Year in 2001. Her love of books, rainbows, and butterflies was surpassed only by her love of family and Regina considered the entire world her family. She welcomed and blessed all she knew with a loving heart, as well as hundreds of books & greeting cards full of best wishes.

She is survived by her daughter Serena & grandsons Ronald, and A.J.; mother Dorsy; siblings Rhonda, Jim (Janis), Jani, Joe, and Honey (Kevin) Walter; as well as many nieces & nephews who she loved to spoil. She was welcomed in heaven by her proud dad Big Joe, loving husband David, and precious granddaughter Samantha.

Her family extends its sincere gratitude to everyone who cared for Regina in her final days, especially her dear friend Jim Dahl and the entire staff at OHSU hospital.

To honor Regina, please share books, visit the local Blood Bank, perform random acts of kindness, count your blessings & be kind to those you meet.

A Celebration of Life will be held on March 27, 2016; location to be later announced.

Janet (Jan) Sue Hinrichs passed away at 72 on May 20, 2016 at Sacred Heart Medical Center with family by her side. Janet lost her second battle with cancer after a four year remission.

Jan was born in Callaway, Nebraska on June 5. 1943 to Harold and Fae Fochtman. She was the first of three girls; Judy came in 1947 and Karen in 1950. In 1955 when Janet was 12 the family moved to Springfield, Oregon and she attended Springfield Junior High and then

Springfield High School. Jan continued her education at the University of Oregon and graduated with a degree in Education in 1965. Janet remained a lifelong Duck fan. She married Stephen (Steve) Hinrichs in October 1964 and moved to Virginia after her graduation to be with Steve while he served in the US Army where she taught in Head Start. Upon their return to Oregon in 1967, Jan started teaching at Camp Creek Elementary where she had a split class of first and second graders. Jan continued her career at Centennial Elementary where she taught second graders. She retired at 55 in 1998 from Ridgeview Elementary and continued working for two years as a reading consultant.

Jan loved to do art projects, such as painting Christmas ornaments for her sorority and crocheting many items for friends and family. Her Arizona friends all enjoyed her crocheted angels. She also enjoyed doing home improvement projects and was capable of doing so many things even re-plastering walls. She was dedicated and capable with any job she took on.

Steve and Jan loved to travel and had many adventures in their motorhome. After Jan' s retirement they started going to Arizona to spend holidays and then later on from November to April.

She was all about family and friends always looking forward to the next get together. She served on the reunion committee for her Springfield Class of 1961 and spent many hours planning and preparing for class functions.
