Elizabeth “Beth” Ann Pine
December 30, 1944 - April 30, 2009
Elizabeth Ann Pine, 66, a resident of Hood River, Ore., died at her home Thursday evening, April 30, 2009. Beth was born Dec. 30, 1944, in Stourport-on-Severn, England. She was the middle of three children born to Lawrence (Fred) and Winifred (Winnie) Hawkins.
Originally settling in the San Gabriel Valley, Calif., area, Beth eventually moved to the upper Hood River Valley in the fall of 1970 with her family.
Beth was a active member of several organizations in the Hood River Valley: the Parkdale Grange, the senior meals program and, most notably, the Upper Valley Lions. Seen regularly at any of her three son’s sporting events or scouting activities, Beth was rarely found at home. She has been an active parishioner of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church for more than 30 years.
Beth is survived by her three sons: Thomas Pine, of Redmond, Ore., David Pine and his wife, Marie, of Lewiston, Idaho, and Michael Pine and his wife, Dawn, of Big Lakes, Minn. Seven grandchildren also celebrate her life.
A graveside service will be held at the Parkdale Cemetery on Thursday, May 7, at 2 p.m. A reception will follow the service.
Memorials can be made to Heart of Hospice of Hood River, the Upper Valley Lions Club, or the Hood River Valley Adult Center in care of Anderson’s Tribute Center (Funerals, Receptions, Cremations), 1401 Belmont Ave., Hood River, OR 97031; 541-386-1000.
