Evelyn E. Roberts
Feb. 12, 1921 - Oct. 14, 2015
Evelyn E. Roberts, 94, passed away October 14, 2015. She was a South Dakota ranching girl at heart, born in Conde, February 12, 1921. Her adoring parents were Charles and Gladys Rathbun. 
Evelyn was the eldest of their four children. Her love for her sisters was immense. She had treasured memories of spending winters in Pomona, California, with family. Evelyn graduated from high school in Groton, South Dakota, in 1939. 
She married Bob Roberts on April 24, 1944, in Portland, Oregon. Evelyn grew to be an Oregonian after living there for many decades. She worked for the State of Oregon, in the agriculture dept. of Brand Registration for many years.  
She loved her children with all her heart - Barbara Roberts, born in 1948, and Martin Roberts, born in 1952. Evelyn supported her children in their education, 4-H, their hobbies and sports. They were her pride and joy. Evelyn was also very proud to be a grandmother to Jessie and Layne Roberts. 
Later in life she became a loving mother-in-law to Betsy Robel, and grandmother to her young son, Brandon Gomez. Her grandchildren’s humor and antics delighted her. She equally loved to tease them and surprise them with funny Christmas gifts. 
Evelyn was generous with her spirit and her heart. She treasured her trip to Alaska with her daughter, Barbara. She loved to hunt and travel with her husband, Bob. 
She moved to Montana after her daughter, Barbara died in 2009. She lived independently just  one mile down the road from Marty and Betsy, until her death. Together, they would enjoy dinners on the deck, going for rides around western Montana, taking trips back to Oregon, and trying out new restaurants for breakfast and dinner.  
Evelyn was a gentle, loving, good natured, and independent little spirit. She really loved animals, especially miniature Pinschers.  She loved studying the weather, ranching life, and was a voracious reader. Evelyn was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Redmond Chapter. 
Evelyn was preceded in death by both parents, husband, Bob Roberts; sister, Unadell Stevenson; nephew, Roger Hauschildt; and daughter, Barbara Roberts.  She is survived by her sister, Connie Hauschildt; brother, Douglas Rathbun; son, Marty Roberts (Betsy Robel); grandchildren, Jessie, Layne, Brandon; and extended family. 
There will be a private family graveside service in Bend, Oregon, at Deschutes Memorial Gardens, on October 17, 2015.      Arrangements are under the care of Garden City Funeral Home.

Gary Newman
December 5, 1946–October 19, 2015
Born to Meribe & Walter Newman in San Paulo, CA, and raised in Washington State on the banks of the Columbia River, Gary attended Kelso High School and just recently celebrated his 50th class reunion.
He pursued his bachelor’s in journalism from the University of Oregon, which was interrupted on several occasions by voluntary service with Catholic charities, the Peace Corps–Paraguay 1969–1971, and the United States Army–Berlin. Gary had a boundless appetite for learning and discovery, which was evident in his pursuit of adventure in the outdoors and the diligent creation of poetry, photography, and prose.
His early career in Central Oregon included being a ski lift operator on Mt. Bachelor before continuing his journalism career at the Redmond Spokesman in the 1990s. He diligently recorded the news and times of Central Oregon happenings, first as a sports reporter and photographer, then later as the Spokesman editor. During his time with the Spokesman, he was synonymous with the sports community, building relationships on and off the field with the athletes and families of Redmond High School.
Gary is survived by his family, including his wife, Judy, and children Zen and Zoie, as well as his mother, Meribe, and sister Lora. He was much beloved by his coworkers and friends in the community. His memory endures as a strong and soft-spoken man with a gentle spirit. His time with all of us continues to becherished and remembered with love.
