Obituary for Marion Ann Holm

Marion Ann Holm was born September 1, 1918 at Crooked Finger four miles from Scotts Mill, Oregon to John Waibel and Bercia Telfer. She lived there until she was four where she learned to ride a horse. From there she moved by train to Willamina up on Willamina Creek to the Booth place across from East Creek Bridge. She started school at Buck Hollow for primary years, then two years at Willamina High and then finished at Sheridan High graduating in 1937.
Marion met John Holm in 1939 when he came to Willamina on the train from Rochester, Washington to work at Pacific Associated Plywood Mill. They were married on June 19, 1941.
Marion started driving school bus for Willamina in 1960 and was the bus supervisor and also helped in the kitchen until her retirement in 1997.
Marion was a master gardener, loved to work in her yard and flowers, decorate cakes, and was involved with her children in all of their school activities and was a 4-H leader for 25 years. She took many of the area children to the berry and beans fields to work during the summer time.
Marion is survived by her daughter Joan (Gary) Remington of Dallas, OR, sons; John Holm, Jr. (Sandy) of Sandy, OR, Victor (Kathy) Holm of Sheridan, OR, seven grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, husband, brother Bert Waibel and sister Freda Olson.
