Our Mother Juanita Mae Whiteis of Albany, Oregon passed away on August 4th, 2018. She was born on May 8th, 1929 in Oberon, North Dakota to Josephine and Alvin Anderson. During her childhood she was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time on her grandparent’s farm and shared many enjoyable stories of those times. She moved to Klamath Falls Oregon in the mid forties where she met her husband; they settled into Albany in 1958. They raised 5 children; JoAnn Perry; Ralph Whiteis (Lauranne Whiteis); Alice Dodge (Richard Dodge); John Whiteis and Penny Truelove (Robert Truelove). She later divorced her husband after 30 years of marriage.
She worked at a variety of jobs some of them being Stokely Van Camps; Oremet; Smoke Craft and Senior Volunteer Placement.
She was always involved in the community; PTA president of her children’s grade school; Camp Fire; Boy Scouts; served as an Advisor on the Housing Board; Meals on Wheels; and with the Senior Center to name a few. She met her Life Partner Verdie Frazier while volunteering at the Senior center. They have spent the last 16 years together building memories; they loved dancing; drives in the woods and just spending time being together.
Our mother also loved to cook; and had many delicious dishes and desserts that she would share so others could enjoy. She loved to garden and took pleasure in her hanging flower baskets.
