Loren and Margaret Barlow

Class of 1943. Loren Barlow. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Loren Call Barlow, Jr, MD, died at age 95 of the frailties incident to age on 2 February 2022 at home in Eugene, Oregon with his wife, Joyce, by his side. He was born 8 April 1926 in St Louis, Missouri to Loren Call Barlow, Sr, and Rachel Irene Smith Barlow while his father attended medical school at Washington University. His family moved to Phoenix, Arizona where his father practiced surgery until his death at age 36 when Loren was 5 years old. Subsequently, Loren, his older sister Rachel and their mother moved to Logan, Utah where he grew close to his Grandmother Smith while his mother completed her undergraduate studies at Utah State Agricultural College. They next moved to Chicago, Illinois where Loren fell in love with the Chicago Cubs while his mother earned a Masters Degree from the University of Chicago. Finally, they settled in Provo, Utah where Loren learned to love the Wasatch mountains, skiing, and tennis while his mother taught Home Economics at Brigham Young University (BYU). Loren earned his Eagle Scout during high school. He graduated from BYU High School in the Class of 1943. He then served in the US Army in the Pacific from 1944 to 1946. Loren attended BYU where he met his future wife, Margaret Wilson. He married Margaret on 20 June 1949. From childhood, he wanted to be a physician. He once hid in his father's car so he could accompany him on his hospital rounds. He earned his MD degree from Northwestern University, interned at Evanston (Illinois) Hospital, and completed three years of internal medicine training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. In 1955, he began his solo practice of medicine in Eugene, Oregon by hanging out his shingle and waiting for patients to show up. After 17 years of eventually very busy solo practice, he formed a partnership and professional corporation with Drs John Bonzer and Bill Holcomb in 1973. Always impressed by the Mayo Clinic model of multi-specialty group practice of medicine, Loren advocated for, and became the first president of, Oregon Medical Group in 1988. He was disappointed by the subsequent failure of further integration of medical care in Eugene. He concluded his career with Peace Health Medical Group before retiring in 2003, although he remained active in Quality Improvement projects until 2009. He served voluntarily as Chief of Staff at Sacred Heart Hospital between 1969 and 1971 and served on many Sacred Heart and Peace Health boards and committees. Welcomed by Margaret's sister Marian, her husband Met Wilson, and their children, Loren and Margaret and their children quickly felt at home in Eugene. Loren soon became an avid fly fisherman, a loyal fan of the Oregon Ducks, and a founding member of the Eugene Swim and Tennis Club. He and his family attended all of the University of Oregon football and basketball home games and track meets. (He never lost his Great Depression habit of frugality; refusing to buy himself or his children popcorn or drinks at the games!) He also attended countless swim meets, Eugene Boys Athletic Association games, and junior and senior high school sporting events to watch his children compete. Additionally, he and Margaret loved to attend the Bach Festival, the Eugene Symphony and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. They joined four other couples in a play-reading group that met for 20 years. They both loved vacations to the Oregon Coast, to Minnesota in the 1960s to see the Metropolitan Opera touring company with Met and Marian, and to England for one much anticipated and fondly remembered trip in 1977. Loren and Margaret were thrilled when Met and Marian retired to Eugene, allowing them all to indulge in their favorite pastime - playing bridge. Following Margaret's death in 1989, Loren married Joyce VanHall on 5 November 1994 and welcomed her two children into his home. During his retirement Loren provided free medical care at the Volunteers in Medicine Clinic. He became an avid reader, especially of US history, played tennis into his 90s and remained a keen observer of current events. For many years, he gathered his children, their spouses and his grandchildren for a reunion each summer. At the encouragement of his children, he wrote his autobiography. He listened to classical music and jazz, enjoyed modern art, traveled with Joyce, his children and his tennis buddies and never wavered in his loyalty to the Ducks (adding women's basketball to his list of must-see games). In 2016, his beloved Cubs finally won the World Series, ending a drought of 108 years. Loren was preceded in death by his father, Loren Call Barlow, Sr, on 2 June 1931, his mother, Irene, on 17 July 1979, his wife, Margaret, on 20 December 1989, and his sister, Rachel, on 12 June 2014. He is survived by his wife, Joyce, her children Bob Cherney of Perth, Australia and Jesse VanHall of Eugene, Oregon, his children Stephen (Kathleen) Barlow of Salt Lake City, Utah, David (Margaret Graham) Barlow of Seattle, Washington, Janet (Rick Mitchell) Barlow of Portland, Oregon, John (Tamsin) Barlow of Rochester, Minnesota, 19 grandchildren and 17 greatgrandchildren - the youngest of whom (Olive Loren) was born a few hours before his death. The family is grateful to all the medical personnel, including Brighton Hospice nurses, who cared for Loren during his final months. A graveside memorial service will be held at Rest-Haven Memorial Park, 3900 Willamette Street in Eugene, on Friday 25 February 2022 at 1 pm. An Open House will be held at 1819 Fairmont Blvd in Eugene between 2:30 and 4:30 pm the same day.

Class of 1943. Clayton D. Bushnell. Boy's Organization 1-2, Spanish Club 1. He first married Mary, and second Gloria. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: September 27, 1924 ~ November 29, 2014. Clayton D. Bushnell, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend passed from this lifetime to eternity on Saturday, November 29, 2014 at 90 years of age. Eternity is blessed to have his intelligence, kindness, loving and generous spirit added to the noble there. Clayton was born in Meadow, Utah on September 27, 1924 to Edward Dee and Myrtle Bracken Bushnell. He grew up in Provo and spent summers in Meadow, Utah. He graduated from Brigham Young High in May 1943 and enlisted in the Army. After testing in the top 10% of recruits, he was assigned to the University of Wisconsin in Madison, where he studied engineering in the A.S.T.P. officer-training program. To his disappointment the program ended due to the need for manpower in the infantry. He was shipped out July 24, 1944 to the Asian Pacific Theater. During World War II, he fought for one year on the front lines in the Philippines and the Battle for Okinawa. He was in the first wave of infantry during the invasion of Okinawa where he earned five Battle Stars, the Arrowhead and the Purple Heart for wounds received on April 28, 1944. He fell in love with and married Mary Louise Fisher in 1952, in the St. George Temple. Together they happily welcomed seven beautiful children into their home. They felt deep heartache at the loss of three of their children under the age of four due to a congenital heart defect. Clay later wrote that his children and grandchildren were his source of pure joy. Clay and Mary were married 30 years before Mary passed away in 1982. After two years he discovered that he could fall in love again and he married Gloria Peterson Harris in 1984. Clay and Gloria were also married for 30 years. Clay taught us the importance of family and the value of each person. To quote Clay, "What do I count as my greatest blessings? My children and grandchildren are my greatest treasures." Family relationships and the Gospel of Jesus Christ were most important to him. Clay had a remarkable career as an aerospace engineer and was known in the space and defense industry as one of the top innovators and problem solvers. He was one of the engineers for the first lunar exploration. He was project manager for the Conestoga Rocket launch, which was the first privately funded rocket launched in the United States. He was sought after for his experience in rocket launch operations, deep space exploration spacecraft and guidance systems, jet reaction control systems for satellites, and for his ability to solve complex and challenging problems. He was a successful part of the Star Wars anti-missile program - the Kinetic Kill Vehicle - which is now part of the Smithsonian collection. Despite his amazing career, Clay loved his family most. He wanted his family to know that he prayed for them each night. We loved him so much, but the incredible thing was how much he loved us! Grandpa had a huge heart! He was a great example of how to love -- with all your heart. Clay's legacy of love and humor will continue on in the lives of his family and friends whom he touched so greatly. He will be missed by those of us who were privileged to know him on this earth. We know that there was a grand reunion in the spirit world upon his passing. The family would like to thank all of those who provided Clay with medical and personal care prior to his passing, especially Dr. Claude Warner and Sarah and the VA staff, who were so kind to him. Clay is survived by his wife, Gloria, children Jannette (Mike) Salisbury, Diane Hanks, Glenn (Annette) Bushnell, Beverly (Richard) Whiting, stepchildren; Julie (Geoff) Woods, Laurie (Kent) Cannon, Dale (Chris) Harris and Dave Harris, 28 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Mary; children; Edward, Cady Lynn and Douglas.

Ruth & Keith Duffin

Class of 1943. Ruth Gates. West High School 2, Fauvines 3, Cheerleader 3, College enrollment 3. Ruth married _______ Duffin. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Love to Live, Live to Learn, Learn to Love. Ruth "Foo" Gates Duffin - like her grandmother, Susa Young Gates - was a woman ahead of her time. She combined a zestful approach to life's new opportunities - taking a ride on a motorcycle, fulfilling a mission and participating in politics - with a love for family, church and traditional values. Secure in the love of all who were blessed by her life, she passed away peacefully early Thursday, March 27, 2003. A great-granddaughter of Brigham Young, Ruth was born July 12, 1925 to Brigham Cecil and Gwenneth Gibbs Gates in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her curly hair and gregarious personality were known far and wide. As the baby of four sisters and one brother, she grew up surrounded with love and a strong foundation, which she passed to her children and grandchildren. Brighton, Utah was the backdrop of many summers spent fishing, hiking and reveling in the beauty of the mountains. If you heard a car honk, three times, at the entrance to Brighton, you knew Ruth was arriving. Live to Learn. Ruth attended West High School, and in 1943 graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo. In keeping with her adventurous spirit, Ruth served an LDS mission to London, England from November 1946 to 1948. Upon her return, she married B. Keith Duffin September 1, 1948, in the Salt Lake Temple and embarked on her greatest venture -- her family. She was a loving wife and high-spirited mother of three. Her zest for life also included a penchant for politics which led her to chairing the Republican Party in Utah County. Learn to Love. Ruth was a true disciple of Christ, following the Master's example of actively loving all with whom she associated. From dropping dimes for children to find, to offering specially prepared treats to family and strangers alike, she gave all she had to others without judgment or expectation of recognition. This is truly her greatest legacy. Her presence will be greatly missed. We are happy to have known her, learned from her and been loved by her. We are excited to, one day, be with her again. She is preceded in death by her brother, Brigham "Buddy" Cecil Gates. She is survived by her husband B. Keith Duffin. Sisters: Gwenneth Gates Mulder, Lou Gates Ashton, Helen Gates Grant Gardner Wahmberg. Her children: Deanna Burnett, James Gates Duffin (Linda), and Lu Ann Spiers (Ken). Her grandchildren: Alisha (Bret), Melanie (Pete), Heather, Jeffrey, Mark (Kassidy), Heidi, Krissie, Jamie, and Debbie (Tarl). Her great-grandchildren: McKensie, Eric, Avery, Addison, Lexi Lu, and Ellie. Funeral services were held Monday, March 31, 2003 at the Cottonwood 11th Ward (1830 E. 6400 S.), Salt Lake City, Utah. Internment, Sunset Lawn Cemetery. [Deseret News, Saturday, March 29, 2003.]

Verna Hansen married Jacob David (Jake) Blocker. They lived in Savannah, Georgia for many years. They have five children, and many grandchildren. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Verna Rae Hansen Blocker. Our Grandma Snicklefritz, Verna Rae Hansen Blocker, passed away peacefully October 28, 2020 in Orem, Utah at the age of 96. Born in Provo, Utah on September 25, 1924, to Franklin Earl and Elva Hansen, she was the oldest of ten children. She attended Brigham Young High School at a time when all the boys were gone to war, graduating in the Class of 1943. She married Jacob David Blocker in July of 1949 and headed down to the deep south of Savannah, Georgia where she raised four sons and a daughter. While living in Savannah she worked at Anderson’s Grocery Store and Jim’s convenience store where she loved to take the grandkids to fulfill her oath as a Grandma to fill them with treats. She was well known and loved in the communities served by these stores. After Jake’s death in 1996, Verna headed back to Utah where she would become known to hundreds of children as Grandma Blocker. She volunteered 16 years in the Foster Grandparent program at Scera Park Elementary helping kids learn to read and most importantly, making them feel special. She was honored at the age of 93 for her years of service and decided it was time to retire. Caring for others was Grandma’s calling in life; whether it was caring for her ailing family members, tending grandkids, making hand-drawn cards for all the kids every Christmas and birthday or the ever-reliable pat on the cheek letting you know she loved ya. Grandma loved people, even the occasional “Old Heifer”. She loved telling her stories and learning someone else’s. She could always find a cousin and she would forever introduce them as such. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and worked as an ordinance worker for 11 years in the Mount Timpanogos Temple. She was adored and will be remembered by so many for the laughs she gave, the stories she told and always for the way she made them feel. But Grandma, the time came for you to close your little peepers and head on home and when they asked how it went, you probably answered with the only fitting answer, “It was just the ticket and gooder n’ snuff!” Verna is survived by her children: Jacob David Blocker, Jr. (Debbie), Steven Kim (Brenda), Anne Hagewood (Gary), Gary Franklin (Carol), Teddy Leon (Kathy), 23 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by a brother, David Hansen, and a sister, Gail Vernon. A viewing for Verna was held on Friday, November 6, 2020, at the LDS Chapel at 1075 West 1100 North, Orem. Followed by a funeral service that was live-streamed at on ZOOM (To view this funeral service paste the following link in your web browser and click 'ENTER' She was buried alongside her parents in the American Fork City Cemetery following the service. The family expresses their deep gratitude to the staff and management of Summerfield Retirement and the Envision Hospice staff, especially hospice nurse, Nate Mansanarez, for their kind care of Verna.
