Edelweiss Day

Huge crowds jammed Mtn View Orchards near Parkdale Saturday for the annual Swiss-German Edelweiss Day, hosted by Ruthie McAlexander, right, and her husband, Lyle, and family. Visitors Heidi Eidler, left, of Pendleton, originally from Austria, listens with her daughter, Tamara Morgan of The Dalles, to the music of the Edelweiss Irregulars. Eidler, whose family heritage connects to the former German colony in Namibia, southwest Africa, particularly enjoyed the group’s rendition of a folk song from that region, “Hard As A Camelthorn Tree.” Lyle McAlexander said the festival, in its 31st year, saw its largest turnout ever.

Mary Henricke Hood River resident Mary A. Henricke died at her residence at Down Manor Thursday, Oct. 13, 2005. She was 92 years of age. Private services will be observed. Mary was born Aug. 18, 1913, in Boise, ID to Harry and Comelia (Kaizer) Hill. She attended schools in Portland, Ore. graduating from Grant High School and furthering her education at Oregon State University. Mrs. Henricke purchased and rented properties in the Portland area when she was working in the Real Estate business. She also owned a metaphysical bookstore near the downtown Portland Library. Mary moved to Hood River in 2003 and has made close friends with many fellow residents at Down Manor. Mrs. Henricke is survived by her son, Dave Bronson of Hood River, two grandchildren and one great grandchild. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Gorge, c/o Anderson’s Tribute Center, (Funerals-Receptions-Cremations) 1401 Belmont, Hood River, OR 97031. Bernice Myers Bernice Mary Myers of Coos Bay died on Sept. 18, 2005. Bernice was born Nov. 16, 1928, in Delta, Colo., to Ira and Libby McKissen. She moved with her family to Hood River, where she attended school. She married Bill Myers on June 4, 1947, and settled in the Coos Bay area in the mid-1950s, Her main career in life was that of a wife, mother and homemaker. Sh was an avid gardener and became known in the neighborhood as “the lady who could make anything grow.” Her love for animals was evident by the number of stray cats and dogs that showed up on the family doorstep and never left. Bernice’s determination to rise above a crisis, whether it be taking care of a loved one, or dealing with her own health problems, will be a life lesson for those who were fortunate enough to know her. She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Juanita and Ken Bright of The Dalles, Ore.; brother-in-law, Fred Myers and wife, Margaret, of Anaheim, Calif.; sister-in-law Lois Myers of Wheat Ridge, Colo.; son, Stanley Myers of Salem, Ore.; daughters Christine Brown and husband, Joe Cook, of North Ben, Rena Tabbott of Zimmerman, Minn., and Rosie Meyers of Tehachapi, Calif. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, numerous nieces and nephews, and her dear friends, Ron and Joanne Patnode of Bridge, Ore. The family suggests those who knew Bernice to plant something of their choice in their yard in her memory.

The things we did in summer, I'll remember all winter long

Fun came in many forms and fashions this summer in Hood River County, on the water and on land, inside or outside, planned or impromptu, at work or at play, in costume or come-as-you-are. Hood River News staff took thousands of photographs this summer, and it was always a challenge to choose just the right image of any event. We often wished we could print more than one.

Pear Plenty

Mary Jette’s two-pound Bartlett stands out among the bounty of the season in Hood River County. The giant was picked last week on Mary and Fred Jette’s orchard on Willow Flat Road. The pear is more than twice the size and weight of most large Bartletts, such as the example in Mary’s right hand. The two-pounder spent a week in the fridge and was ready to eat by Monday. But Mary said the field man from Diamond Fruit, Chad Wimmers, told her, “Don’t eat that pear until I see it.”

A curving path, flanked to the south by an arching rock wall build by Mount Hood Gardens forms an inviting entry from the Sixth Street, or western, end of the park. Most of the park is currently off-limits as crews complete stairways, paths, rock walls, and other improvements. Iron railing frames rocks and construction equipment at the northwest corner of the library building, where changes in the Georgiana Smith Memorial Park continue the blending of old and new at the expanded county park.
