Susan Annette Bozarth
April 3, 1944 - Nov. 25, 2011
Susan Annette Bozarth, age 67, died as a result of Lewy Body Disease on Friday, November 25, 2011, in Redmond, OR. 
Susan was born on April 3, 1944, in McMinnville, Ore., the first child of David and Evelyn Brown.  She had three siblings, Christian, David, and Dana Brown. 
The family moved to Redmond during Susan’s high school years.  In 1963, she married James F. Bozarth.  They raised a family, too many animals to count, and grew beautiful gardens. 
Susan worked for the Redmond School District as a school secretary at Tumalo Elementary School. 
Upon retirement, Susan and Jim moved to Mapleton, Ore., where they were able to garden by the Siuslaw River to their heart’s content.  Susan and Jim returned to Redmond in 2010.
Always active and busy, Susan was involved in gardening, reading, raising animals, going on day trips, cooking, making her home beautiful, flower arranging for celebrations and events, and working toward preventing overdevelopment of scenic lands such as Smith Rocks State Park.  She was especially fond of fostering stray animals, getting them healthy, and finding them suitable new homes. 
She could not help but be a mother or a friend to anyone who seemed to need one, and she usually did so with a generous amount of humor and positive outlook.  Susan took great joy in her life.
Susan is survived by her husband, James  Bozarth; her children, Frances  Bozarth, Rebecca  Bozarth, Michael Bozarth, Tim McKenzie;  her daughter- in-law, Mary McKenzie; and her son-in-law, Jim Miller;  grandchildren Sam Stillwell, Savannah Stillwell, Ike McKenzie and Molly McKenzie; her mother, Evelyn Brown; her brothers, Christian Brown, David Brown; sister, Dana Brown and their families; and her many dear friends.
A memorial/life celebration for Susan, will take place Dec. 4, from , at the Becky Johnson Center,
412 SW 8th St, Redmond, OR
. Please contact Rebecca Bozarth at 503-545-9559 or dvmbozarth@gmail.com with any question. Attendees are invited to bring a memory of Susan, a dish to share, and wear a splash of bright color in her honor.  Her ashes will be scattered at a later time and date as yet to be determined.
Thank you to the Memory Care Staff at Cougar Springs, Hospice, and the many people who touched Susan’s life.  Susan’s life was full of love, laughter, and joy.


Donald Wayne Reding
October 5, 1926 - Nov. 22, 2011

Don was born in Tacoma, Wash., to Leo and Elizabeth (Curtis) Reding.
Don grew up in the Tigard, Ore., area, graduating in 1944 from Tigard High School. He went directly from graduation to San Diego and the Navy.  He was a US Navy seaman in the Asian war area 1944-1946.
He married Maxine Hickey in 1949, and was blessed with sons, Jerry and Bobby, and daughter, Donna.
Don worked for Safeway Stores from 1947 to 1984.  He was the store manager in Redmond, Ore., 1959 to 1969.  He was active in the community and enjoyed being a volunteer ambulance driver and fireman.
Don married Diana (Aeschliman) Westfall, Dec. 2, 1978, at the MGM Grand Hotel in Reno, Nevada.  He helped raise Diana’s two sons, Derek and Daniel Westfall.
He retired in 1984, and returned to Redmond with Diana, who was born and raised in Bend, Ore.
His favorite activities were family, friends, cooking, gardening, woodworking, and in later years, the computer and crossword puzzles.
In lieu of flowers or remembrances, Don asked for donations to the Redmond-Sisters Hospice.
No services are planned.
Don was a loving person who loved life, people and his cats, Hairee and Lillee.  He will be dearly missed by all.

The Grapes of Wrath


Leslie Pugmire Hole
Spokesman staff
In the opinion of Evan Hagan, folk singers in the early decades of the 20th century were the original punks; their music was anti-establishment and angry.
He can relate. The high school senior has been drawn to punk music for years, playing guitar in a band, The Knuckle Children, since middle school.
“There were no posers back then,” says Hagan, who plays guitar in the Depression-era play “The Grapes of Wrath” at Redmond High School this week. “These people really were starving artists. I have enormous respect for them.”
Hagan, and fellow Knuckle Children band member Josh Agee, are part of an unusual musician-actor-Greek chorus group of teens who perform in “Wrath.” They call themselves The Grape Pickers.
Hagan plays Grandpa Joad, patriarch of a family of Dust Bowl refugees trying to find a better life in California, which they’ve been assured is a land of plenty.
The rest of the musicians, Gatlin Cyrus on fiddle, Mandi Kuhlman on vocals, Lili Wagner on vocals and harmonica, Phil Aulie on mandolin, Una Wagner on vocals and washboard, Dallas Husky on vocals and Agee on guitar, have bit parts in the play in addition to the songs performed during set transitions and the play’s two acts.
Two of the musicians are children of Wrath director Hilda Beltran and most of the rest were recruited directly by her. Beltran’s husband, Judd Wagner, is a Redmond School District teacher who has headed a student roots-music program, The Americana Project, for many years.
All the students agreed: Beltran knows how to sniff out good musicians.
“I don’t know how she found out I play mandolin but she did,” Aulie shakes his head ruefully. The senior started out playing violin several years ago but discovered the mandolin and has not gone back.
“I learned to play jigs when I was younger but I can’t say I’m really a fan (of old-time folk music), but when Beltran asked me I thought 'Why not?’”
None of the four boys admits to being big bluegrass or folk fans but Ag ee and Hagan are fans of the Redmond group Larry & His Flask, which in recent years has transitioned from old-school punk music to a more roots-Celtic blend – with a punkish twist.
Cyrus has the most training in the style of music used in Wrath, having studied fiddle for years with teacher Brandon Booher, and has played country and Irish music. He says he likes playing anything that gets your feet tapping.
“I wasn’t really a fan of this music before but it’s everywhere in Central Oregon and I’ve come to appreciate the freedom of it, how it has so much more to say,” says Hagan.
