RIP my dear sister

My dear "big sister" passed away on August 2, 2019. She was 4 years older than me. She has been my friend, confidant, partner in fun, helper, and the master of wisdom when I needed advice. I will miss her so very much.

February 29, 1944 - August 2, 2019

Yes, she was a "leap year" baby. Every 4 years we teased her that she was only a year older!

She was always there for all of us other 3 sisters.

She loved sports, fishing, camping, and reading good mystery novels. She was passionate about the San Francisco 49er's! And her idol was Joe Montana. She was a Centennial High School graduate in 1962, in Portland, Oregon. She played softball for a Portland women's softball team back in the 60's. 

We were always best friends, even when she was living in California.  We grew up in Portland, Oregon until she moved to California when she was 20 and I was 17.  I had the privilege of living in the same little town with her for the years 2012 through 2015 (in La Pine, Oregon). The rest of her years from 2015 until now, she lived at the coast, either in Waldport, Oregon or Florence, Oregon. She had quite the wanderlust before that, and loved to travel and move around!

It was just wonderful having her for my "neighbor" for those 3  years. Precious memories were made.

We played together as children and were always getting into mischief!

We loved going fishing with our dad!
She had quite a struggle with the cancer that took her, for the last 11 months. She is at peace now and on her way to a wonderous and beautiful place where she will be young and vibrant again! I will miss you dear sister, but I know you will continue to guide my path through this life.
