2. Doris Jane Alley 1935-2017

flower.rose.starDoris Jane Alley went to join her savior on May 30, 2017 after a long and happy life. She died at St. Charles Hospital in Bend.

Doris was born in Mitchell (Scottsbluff, County) Nebraska on March 1, 1935. She was the 5th of 6 children born to Purl and Mary Campbell.

Doris and her family moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls Oregon. Doris went to grade school in Klamath and graduated from Klamath Falls High School in 1953. She continued her education at Oregon Technical Institute where she majored in nursing. During her college experience she met her future husband and mate for life Douglas Alley.

Doris and Doug were married on June 18, 1955 in Klamath Falls Oregon. They moved to the family farm outside of Moro, Oregon joining Doug’s parents Paul and Pauline Alley. Doug and Doris immediately began building and moving their “new” home, “the old schoolhouse” to start their new family. One year later they had moved into their new Alley Ranch home where they remained the rest of their lives. That home raised and harbored their 4 children, Deb, Ardena, Diane and Dwight.

Doris took an active role as partner in the farm, wife, a loving mother, and a dear friend to the community of “Sherman County.”

As the kids grew up Doris was one of the first moms who would organize a class party, chaperone a field trip and drive the car pools. Since the Alley kids were farm kids their mom became their 4-H leader and their biggest fan. Doris was a huge athletic supporter and enjoyed being a gymnastic judge, working track meets and keeping the scorebooks at baseball games.

In addition she worked as the Sherman County Fair secretary for many years. She took pride in her responsibilities which everyone appreciated.

Doris also volunteered in the Red Cross Swim Program as a swimming instructor. She was a member of the Sherman County EMT program which included the county ambulance. She also painted murals at the Sherman County Historical Museum. She donated many hours cataloging at the Plane Tree Library and was a board member for the MCMC Health Foundation.

When Doug and Doris retired from farming they began RVing and exploring. They visited most of the United States. Doris mostly loved the trips to Alaska. They spent their winters in Arizona and Mexico with close friends. In her later years she loved spending time in the yard and garden surrounded by her dogs and kitties. Maybe her biggest enjoyment was watching her favorite sports teams, the Seattle Mariners and Seahawks.

Doris is preceded in death by her husband – Douglas Alley , her father Purl Campbell, her mother Mary Campbell, brothers Bill Campbell, and Dean Campbell , and her sister Shirley Mitchell. 

She is survived by her brother Donald Campbell, and sister Sandi Bresee. Her children Deb and Neil Watterson, Ardena and Daryl Lonien, Diane and Mark Robertson, Dwight and Charmayn Alley. Grandchildren Matthew and Virginia Watterson, Josh and Shinae Watterson, Brett and Erin Watterson, Katika Lonien, Krystal Lonien, Derek Clark, Dylan Clark, Christine and Andrew Davis, and James and Anna Alley. Great Grand children: Kate and Wes Watterson, Theo and Will Watterson, Rikaiya Griffn, Lydia, Abigail and Naomi Davis, Amelia and Charlotte Alley.

As one of her best friends stated, “ Those angels are never going to be hungry and she will soon have everyone swimming in the clouds.”


3. Notice: North Central Public Health District Board Meeting, June 13

The North Central Public Health District Board will be meeting Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at the North Central Public Health District, located at 419 E. 7th Street, in the Main Meeting Room, in The Dalles, Oregon.  This meeting is open to the general public.


4. Changing the Balance of Power

If you would like to add new depth of meaning to your life, and give your energy level a boost at the same time, then read on. There is a great idea that has been around for a very long time, and speaks to humanity across the limits of geography. It is an idea that helps give meaning and purpose to life. It can also do wonders for your energy level, relationships, and self-esteem. That idea, in a word, is “service.”  

To be more specific, by “service” we are talking about the act of doing something to assist or benefit someone else without any expectation of reward or even acknowledgement. All of us can think of shining examples of people who selflessly serve others, and by doing so, make the world a better place – like Mother Teresa did.

But it is important to realize that you don’t have to be a Mother Teresa to do good work in the world. Whenever you have a personal or business contact with someone, and you take a moment to put yourself in their shoes and behave accordingly, you change the balance of power in the world – from fear and hate to caring and consideration.

You may be an automobile mechanic, a salesclerk, an accountant or a computer programmer – it doesn’t matter what you do. What matters is how you do it – the creative, personal touches you add to make one someone’s day a little easier or a little smoother. 

Some people will notice what you have done, and some won’t. But it is pretty much guaranteed that if you start to approach your job with the goal of giving truly caring service, you will be transforming your work into something truly magnificent. ~The Pacific Institute
