Obituaries for April 5: Delores Pogue, Amanda Webb
Delores Jean Pogue, 75, of Baker City died April 2, 2007, at St. Elizabeth Care Center.
A private service will be scheduled later.
Delores Jean was born July 25, 1931, at Estherville, Iowa, to Thomas and Thelma L. Sampson Blom. She was raised and educated in Iowa.
Delores met Robert L. Pogue, a serviceman home on leave visiting his sisters, and after a short courtship the two were married in 1951. The couple moved to Oregon in 1956. They lived on the coast for a number of years before relocating to Baker County where they lived for almost 39 years.
Delores was the best mom anyone could ask for, family members said. She loved babies and animals and was a very kind, giving and loving person, they said.
In addition to being a wife and mother, she took various jobs throughout her life. She was a cook at a number of restaurants, the housekeeper at the hospital and a clerk at The Salvation Army for 10 years.
Survivors include her daughter, JoAnn Sieckman, and her husband, Mark, of Baker City; a son, Tommy Pogue, and his wife, Chun, of Georgia; four grandchildren, Stacie, Kermit, Gloria and Kenny; seven great-grandchildren; four sisters, five brothers; many nieces and nephews; three stepchildren, Robert Lewis Pogue Jr., Janet Wade and James Pogue; and a large extended family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; a twin sister; a brother; another sister; an infant son, Jerry Lee; and a close friend and partner, Harry Smit.
Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of one's choice through Coles Funeral Home, 1950 Place St., Baker City, OR 97814.
