Irene Perry was born in Topeka, Kansas, daughter of Clarence and Inez Gordon, and passed away in Redmond, Oregon.
Irene attended Washburn University in Topeka and was a proud member of the Delta Gamma Sorority. She worked for the Santa Fe Railroad as an auditor, which was quite the accomplishment for a woman of that time. In 1951, she married a career Air Force man, James R. Perry, Jr. She and Jim enjoyed the military lifestyle and were thrilled to share it with their two daughters, Jeannene and Michele.
In 1965, they retired from the Air Force and settled in Redmond, Ore., to pursue Jim’s dream of raising Arabian horses. Irene took to the ranch and enjoyed the country lifestyle. In later years she became an avid bridge player and relished in the lives of her grandchildren.

Tharel Gilbert Johnston
June 2, 1923- April 4, 2009
Goodbye to our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend, Tharel, who was born on June 2, 1923, in El Cajon, California, and died on April 4, 2009, in Redmond, Oregon.
A beautiful young woman, she met a compassionate and loving man, our handsome father, Glenn. Children of the Great Depression, Mom and Dad married on Nov. 6, 1943, in Coquille, Oregon.
She served as Dad’s partner, giving birth to five children, Terry (‘45), Duane (‘49), Lonnie (‘52), Elaine (‘57) and Dale (‘63). Mom and Dad were a team, adept with their hands and their minds. Both were artists in their own way, Dad at his upholstery shop where Mom assisted and Mom at her Coquille fabric shop and Redmond sewing and monogramming shop, Our Personal Touch, begun with her daughter and partner, Elaine.
Dad’s death in 1991 saddened the entire family and left Mom grieving and lonely. In 1999, she married Johnny Johnston with the blessing of her children, and continued running her shop.
Mom was always an excellent cook who could make a tasty meal from almost nothing and could seemingly create a banquet of delicious food in the time it would take most cooks just to get organized. She was always an attractive woman who kept herself fashionable and fit to her final days.
Never one to be idle, in her retirement years, Mom continued her business work as a part-time venture from her home while her family grew to include 11 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. Johnny was of considerable help to her in her retirement business. She always enjoyed a lively discussion of political, religious and social issues, and was never hesitant to voice her personal opinions. She enjoyed gardening and took pride in her flower beds, watching the birds at her many feeders, and the deer who peered into her windows. She liked to travel and was an avid reader. She always had a very soft place in her heart for animals, especially dogs, cats and horses.
What did we learn from you, Mom? Work hard, persevere in the good times and bad, convey a sense of humor, and provide love and commitment to one’s partner and family. Thank you, Mom, for your life and the lessons you taught us. May you find eternal happiness.

Joseph Ferguson
July 12, 1924- Jan 15, 2009
Joseph "Wayne" Ferguson of Crooked River Ranch passed away January 15, 2009, after a long, courageous battle with MDS-Myelodysplatic Syndrome.
There will be a celebration of life for friends and family at Ranch Chapel (Crooked River Ranch, 5060 Clubhouse Rd), 11 a.m., Saturday, May 2, 2009.

In 1942, before entering the service, Wayne went to work for Southern Pacific Railroad as a rodman in the engineering department. In 1983 he retired as Regional Engineer with headquarters at Union Station in Portland, Oregon. Wayne loved the railroad and the people.
In 1983, Wayne and his wife, Ruth, built their own log home at Crooked River Ranch where they had purchased 5 acres in 1978. Wayne was very community minded, serving 5 years as a fireman in the Crooked River Ranch Volunteer Fire Dept. and then in the auxiliary. He also served 7 years on the CRR water board.
Wayne was active in the CRR Lions Club until his death. He served as President for two years and Vice- President for one year. He was awarded both the Helen Keller and the Melvin Jones Fellow awards.
On May 6th, 1978, Wayne married his wife, Ruth (Frances Ruth Coleman), who survives.

Also surviving are stepsons Cory Bryson McKelvey (Laura), Portland, Ore.; and Kevin Gene McKelvey (Nanette), Omaha, Neb. Wayne has 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

A unique "folly" proposed for downtown Redmond

A local architect has visions of people of all ages “Playing in Traffic” – and so far, he’s been getting encouragement for the idea he calls “a lot unique.”

A few months ago Bill Schertzinger of Redmond walked out of Cent-Wise Sporing Goods at the intersection of Southwest Sixth Street and Evergreen Avenue and was hit with an idea. It started as a sculpture in the middle of the intersection, up high so traffic could travel under. But as Schertzinger began sketching, more ideas struck him and the sculpture grew into an intersection-spanning platform topped by a roofed glass cube taller than the Historic Redmond Hotel by about 15 feet, and sporting a carousel on one side.

“Playing in Traffic,” as he’s dubbed his creation, could be a unique centerpiece for the city, he told members of the Downtown Urban Renewal Advisory Committee at their March 30 meeting.
If located at the busiest intersection in town, it would be the tallest structure in town, the most unique and the most sustainable building in town, Schertzinger said. The project would develop a sense of community, draw visitors, increase pedestrian traffic downtown, and stimulate immediate and long-term employment, he said of the proposed project’s three main elements: art, entertainment for all ages, and education. Imagine people driving down Sixth Street and seeing the structure from a distance. They’d have to stop to check it out, he said. He envisions partnering with OMSI or the Working Wonders children’s museum in Bend to develop educational opportunities for solar power, windmills and other sustainable technologies as well as having entertainment, such as the carousel and a big slide tube.The structure would be so unique people would make downtown Redmond a destination.

“Imagine looking down Evergreen from the reroute and seeing it all lit up at night,” he said. “Imagine the stimulus. Hardhats to do the work and customers later.”

At this point, he has no idea how much the structure would cost or how it would be paid for, though his idea is to get grants and donations from all parts of the community.
Schertzinger made the presentation to DURAC to get feedback on the idea and to see if there was interest in helping him fund a digital version of his plans.Schertzinger said he was spending so much time developing his idea that his wife told him he needed to find some paying jobs.

Around Thanksgiving someone an anonymous donor wrote him a check for $10,000 so he could pursue the project.

DURAC members were intrigued with the idea. No one panned it outright.

“This is the kind of thing that makes cities spectacular,” said DURAC member Carol Nelson. While seeing a list of issues that would have to be resolved before such a structure could be built, DURAC member Craig Ladkin called it a cool idea, and suggested Schertzinger put the idea out in the public and see what reaction the proposal gets.

Later in the week Schertizinger said he’s ready to see what the public thinks. Over the months he’s been developing the idea and building the model, he’s shown it to a variety of people, including many longtime residents, and he’s been encouraged by their positive reactions. Now, he’d like to move the idea to the next level and make a digital model that can be used to get cost estimates and for fundraising, he said, but that takes time and money.

Still, Schertzinger says this may be the right time to get people interested. About a month ago as he was working on his model, he took time to attend Mayor George Endicott’s state of the city speech. As Endicott ticked off a list of eight elements for his vision of the city, Schertzinger said he got excited. Though Endicott had no idea what Schertzinger was working on, each element seemed to apply to “Playing in Traffic” – creation of a unique sense of place for public and private investors; a common sense of purpose; a commitment to sustainability, learning and education, honors diversity and offers choices, respect for enterprise and ingenuity, commitment to transparency (“With all that glass, you can’t get any more transparent”) and arts, fun and recreation.

“It’s all there,” Schertzinger said.

The public is invited to view Schertzinger’s model. It’s displayed in the lobby of his Glacier Place Building, corner of Southwest Seventh Street and Glacier Avenue. A notepad is available for recording reactions, comments, and ideas.

“I’m looking for them all,” he said. Whatever happens, the innovative architect has enjoyed the experience. “This is fun; I’ve been having a hoot doing it,” Schertzinger said.

Cecil R. Campbell
June 1, 1912 - March 27, 2009
A legendary friend, bowler, fisherman and buckaroo has just ridden off into his final sunset. Born on June 1, 1912 in Philomath, Oregon, Cecil Campbell grew up on a 4,000 acre ranch near Corvallis, Oregon. The son of Jesse W. Campbell and LaVina (Bowers) Campbell he had 12 brothers and sisters. Leaving Corvallis in his teens, he worked on several ranches in Eastern Oregon as a buckaroo and mule team driver. He returned to the Willamette Valley where he met and married Pearl Bevel in 1936. Together they then returned to Central Oregon where Cecil worked in logging near Sisters, Oregon. In 1946 Cecil and Pearl moved to the Glen Ranch located between Post and Paulina, Oregon. While there, Cecil ran cattle for Robert Lister and Gill Cattle Company. He was one of the first members of the Paulina Rodeo Club, participating in building the rodeo grounds and putting on the Paulina Jackpot Rodeo.
Cecil was honored as Paulina Rodeo's "Old Timer" in 1981. After living in the Paulina area for 10 years followed by some farming in Powell Butte, Cecil then went to work for Barclay Logging Company in Sisters, Oregon until he retired in 1976.
Cecil and Pearl had three children, Frank (Susie) Campbell of Wenatchee, Washington, Dee Dee Elliott of Redmond, Oregon, and Faye (Roger) Gullixson of Portland, Oregon. Pearl preceded him in death in 1976.
At the age of 51 Cecil discovered the sport of bowling. He is a local celebrity in the bowling community and he has bowled in many leagues and tournaments. In 1988, he won the second annual Budweiser PBA Northwest Regional Open Pro-Am championship tournament. For many years Cecil bowled in pro-bowler Dave Husted's Milwaukie Bowl Pro-Am, at which he always rolled a game with Dave, even last year at the age of 96!! Throughout his bowling career, he coached and helped many bowlers including the Campbell's All Stars, a team that he both sponsored and bowled with for many years.
For the last 27 years, Cecil resided in Terrebonne, Oregon, making countless friends who have been the lucky recipients of his many wonderful stories. On many a morning before a fishing trip, Cecil's favorite place to spin these stories to the locals was Terrebonne's Sun Spot Drive-In where his stories will always live on.
Cecil is survived by his three children, five grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren. He is survived by brothers, Bobby Campbell, Earl Campbell, Jesse Campbell, and sister, Betty Koon. He was preceded in death by his close companion, Helen Livingston in 2007.
A celebration of his life will be held on April 19th at 1 p.m. at the VFW Hall, 1836 SW Veterans Way, Redmond, Oregon.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Redmond-Sisters Hospice or a charity of one's choice.
