Soup fundraiser for homeless children

The Redmond Kiwanis Club, in cooperation with Izzy’s restaurant, is hosting a soup, bread and beverage luncheon on Wednesday, April 27, at 11:30 a.m. to benefit the Jericho Road homeless children weekend backpack food project.

The cost is $9, cash or check, and half the proceeds will go to Jericho Road. Donations of healthful, ready-to-use food for the program are also welcome.

Recipients of the food may not have a home, a can opener, utensils, or the ability to heat something up on a stove. Jericho Road requests no items in glass, as it poses a safety issue when being put in a backpack that a child has to carry home. Some examples of food may include: cereal, dried fruit, juice boxes, fruit or applesauce packs, granola bars, drinks, lunch tuna packages with crackers, or crackers with cheese spread.

The meeting will feature short presentations from individuals running for the Redmond School board in Position 3 and Position 5. This is an opportunity to meet those running for Redmond School board while benefitting a critical local need. Location is Izzy’s Pizza, 810 S.W. 11th St., in Redmond.

Jericho Road serves more than 300 homeless kids in our community ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. The food they get at school can sometimes be the only meals they receive. This program provides food for the weekend.

Donald Everett Smith
Jan. 21, 1927 - April 10, 2011
Donald Everett Smith, 83, beloved husband to his late wife Billie, lived a wonderful life. He took his last breath peacefully in the home of his daughter, Cynthia Claridge. Surviving him are his daughters, Cynthia, Janine Smith, Deanna Smith; his son, Brad Smith; his seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Don grew up in Oakland CA, entered the Navy at 17, and met his late wife Billie while serving in Spokane WA. Together they raised their family, initially in Spokane and eventually in Portland, OR. Don enjoyed a long career in advertising and marketing, where he made many friends. Upon retiring Don and Billie spent some years traveling the world and moved to Redmond, living together until her death in 1998. For the past 10 years, Don resided with his long-time friend, Marilyn Greene, in Bend. He is a man who will be truly missed here on Earth, but in his wake are many who feel gratitude for the opportunity to have known and loved him. We cherish his memory and rejoice in his newly found freedom and peace.
Contributions can be made in the name of Don and Billie to the Redmond branch of the Deschutes County Library, Partners In Care Hospice, or the Oregon Nature Conservancy. Funeral services will be held in Spokane later this spring.

Leona Marguerite (Creson) Moe
April 22, 1917 - March 31, 2011
Leona passed from this world on March 31, 2011; she was 93 years young. Leona was the loving wife of Leland Moe (deceased), and is survived by her daughter, Janet White (Portland), and was a wonderful grandmother of Lea White Bring (Redmond), Yvonne White Porter (Redmond), Leland White (Deer Park, WA), and Greg White (Portland). Leona was also blessed with nine great-grandchildren and one great-greatgrandson. Leona was born in a homestead located amongst the orchards of Odell, OR. She had spent the past 35 years in Terrebonne and Redmond. She was a passionate defender of the earth and was very pleased when “Earth Day” was celebrated on her birthday each year. She was a meticulous homemaker and loved gardening, cooking, sewing, and playing cards with family on Sunday nights. She had been known to cheat at cards on occasion, although it was never clear whether it was done on purpose. One of Leona’s favorite memories was climbing to the top of Misery Ridge at Smith Rock when she was in her 80s. She loved having guests, although not too often or too many. Leona will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Private interment at Skyline Memorial Gardens in Portland at a future date. Special thanks to Redmond Hospice.

Redmond Fish Fair

Redmond Fish Fair
May 21, Dawn – 2 p.m.

For children age 13 and under and the disabled

Fireman’s Lake, SW Lake Court and Lake Road

Traditionally the annual Redmond fishing fair/derby at Fireman’s Lake has been held the same April Saturday as opening weekend of the high lakes fishing season, one known for chilly temperatures.
This year, however, the Redmond Volunteer Fire Fighters Association and their other sponsors are moving the event to the end of May. The move was made to try to get warmer weather, said Fire Marshal Traci Cooper, Redmond Fire and Rescue.
Last year between 110 and 125 people, parents and children, braved a chill wind and temperatures that started below freezing and topped out in the low 50s, to catch fish and eat hot dogs and hot chocolate for lunch.
In preparation for the big day, the association has started burning cattails and cleaning up around the lake, Cooper said. And warm or chilly, the lake will be stocked with thousands of 6- to 12-inch trout ready for catching at the May 21 fish fair.

Fireman's Lake history
Fireman’s Lake began life in the early 20th century as a watering hole for sheep brought into town to be shipped out by rail. In the early 1950s it became the irrigation pond for the nearby original Juniper Golf Course.
The water body got the name Lion’s Pond after the Lions Club adopted it and promoted its use as a fishing spot for kids. The club kept the cattails at bay and maintained the pond and its banks.
Eventually Redmond’s volunteer fire fighters took over stocking the pond with fish and holding the annual fish fair and the name changed to Fireman’s Lake.
Today, Fireman’s Lake is a 5.77-acre city park, with a walking path, picnic tables, and ADA-accessible fishing for children age 13 and under and the disabled. It’s also home to waterfowl and other birds.

Theodore ‘Ted’ Lee Eberhard
June 9, 1962 - April 6, 2011

The life journey of Ted Eberhard, of Redmond, Oregon, was cut short after a five-year battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). Ted was born in Seattle, Washington, on June 9, 1962, and became an “active, energetic, and mischievous” part of his family right away.
Ted moved with his parents, Bob & Kaye Eberhard, to Redmond, Oregon, at the age of two. A year later, he was joined in the family by his sister, Holly. He graduated from Redmond High School in 1980, attended COCC in Bend, and then Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
Ted grew up playing in the now famous “Dry Canyon” in Redmond, which adjoined the family property below their home. Ted professed himself to be “the big hunter and trapper”. But often his prize catches were “odiferous” - had a white stripe or two down their backs, or had wide dark rings on their tails. He commented often that he had the best backyard anybody could ever have in which to play.
Ted’s first job at Eberhard’s Dairy products at ten years old was bagging ice for 4 cents a bag. During his high school years Ted worked after school and weekends at the dairy. After college, he associated himself with the various facets of the business...loading trucks, doing route sales, sales supervisor, and salesperson. Ted used to say, “I’ve got the best job in the world — and I just love it.” He took pride in pleasing his customers. He made many lifelong friends with his co-workers, customers, and business associates. He continued his life’s work until 2006
when he was diagnosed with ALS.
Ted and Cassie were married on July 20, 2002 on a riverboat in Portland. They had known each other since they were about 12 years old, as Cassie’s family lived in the neighborhood in the Beaverton area where the Beale family resided. Marilyn (Kaye’s sister), Uncle Rod, Kevin, Krista, and Keith, and Ted and Holly grew up together in a family of relatives. Krista and Cassie were best friends during their junior and high school years, and roommates for a time afterward. Along with Cassie, Ted acquired a son, Connor, and a daughter, Mackenzie.
One of Ted’s favorite places was the family property on the Metolius arm of Lake Billy Chinook. He loved the fishing and camping with family and friends. Last summer when he could no longer “catch and release”, he would bait the hooks for those who were fishing. He piloted the boat until his last trip to the lake in October. He loved going fast. In fact, he loved fast cars and took pride in how his vehicle would shine just after he polished it up!
Ted also loved sitting on the lanai facing north in Kona-Kailua, Hawaii, overlooking Keauhou Bay and the city lights. He was also a sun worshipper and loved to cook and eat good food.
Ted passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, April 6, 2011. He is survived by his wife, Cassie; parents Bob and Kaye; sister, Holly; children Connor and Mackenzie; nephew J.D. Maloney; and father and mother-in-law Morlan and April Lewis. Many aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and cousins also survive. We would like to thank John Bidwell for his help, compassion, efforts, kindness, patience, and friendship during Ted’s illness.
A memorial service was held on Monday, April 11, 2011, at 3 p.m. at Community Presbyterian Church, 529
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 1 p.m. at the North Redmond Station - Chloe’sbanquet room in Redmond, Oregon.
Donations can be made in Ted’s memory to the ALS association of Oregon and SW Washington c/o Walk to Defeat ALS, 310 SW 4th Ave. Ste 630, Portland, OR 97204; to Eberhard Family Memorial Scholarship c/o COCC Foundation, 2600 NW College Way, Bend, OR 97701; or Hospice of Redmond-Sisters, 722 SW 23rd Street, Redmond, OR 97756.

David Clayton McCrea
January 3, 1938 - April 3, 2011
David Clayton McCrea, a gentlemen who thoroughly enjoyed his time on the Hood River
catching steelhead.
David was born to Clell C. and Edna M. McCrea on January 3, 1938, in Redmond, Oregon. David was known for his athletics while attending schools in Redmond. Most notable was his instrumental contribution in breaking a 30-year old record with a win over Bend High in 1954, as quarterback. During high school he met the love of his life, Alberta I. Casteel. Following their courtship, David and Alberta were married June 20, 1959. They soon began to build their family with five grateful children.
Missing him deeply is his wife Alberta of Hood River, his three daughters Sherri, Carrie and Lorri of Central Oregon; and his two sons David and Clayton of Hood River. David is also survived by his brother Donald of Portland, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
In 1984, David was able to fulfill his true dreams by becoming a full-time fisherman. Upon the family relocating to Hood River, David was able to retire at the young age of 45 from a long career with Whittier Molding as a supervisor. When not spending time on the river, David was with his family, who he adored.
Trips home to Central Oregon and the Oregon Beach were his favorite times with family. His last beach trip was spent with the entire family celebrating his 50 years of marriage to Alberta. In recent years those close to him saw his gentleness blossom when he was in the company of his favorite companion and man’s best friend, Ni-Sha. David maintained his active lifestyle, enjoying the outdoors until recently, when his heart was no longer able to provide him the necessary energy to pursue his true passion. On April 3, 2011, at Portland Providence Medical Center a wonderful husband and cherished father found ultimate peace surrounded by his wife and five children.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm April 8, 2011, in Hood River at Anderson’s Funeral Home with a light reception to follow. Graveside services will be at 3:00 pm Saturday April 9, 2011, in Redmond at Redmond Memorial Cemetery, with a reception following at Mountain View fellowship in Redmond. The family suggest donations be made in his name to the Hood River Senior Center in lieu of flowers.
