Portland, OR

Mary “Connie” Cornelia (Cairns) Barton was born August 14, 1937 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Joseph Henry and Evelyn Emily (Causer) Cairns. She died peacefully on February 17, 2024, in Portland, Oregon.Connie is survived by her husband, Harry, of 62 years; son Christopher and wife Terry and their daughters Katherine and Madeline of Tulsa, Oklahoma; daughter Jennifer Barton and husband John Romanko and their children Oscar and Georgina of Portland, Oregon; daughter Rebecca Barton and husband Rahul Khurana of Seattle, Washington; brother-in-law Jack Barton and wife Sandra; cousin Mary Ellen and husband Michael Kilanowski of Slidell, Louisiana; and a niece and three nephews. Connie was preceded in death by her sister, Emily Jane (Cairns) Holland in 2022.Connie’s father worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and the family moved multiple times while growing up including to Buffalo, NY, Havertown, PA, and Uniontown, PA. She graduated high school in Columbus, Ohio, and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where she was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in education. Connie was an elementary school teacher. Later one summer working at Wanamaker’s Department Store in Philadelphia, a young man she knew growing up in Uniontown, Harry “Buckie” Barton, tracked her down and asked her out to dinner. Six months later they were engaged and married June 9, 1962. Harry and Connie bought their first home in Cleveland, OH, and welcomed son Christopher Cairns in 1964. Two years later, they moved to Westfield, NY, where Harry took a job at Welch Foods. They established strong roots in this small community where the autumn air smelled of concord grapes and freezing lake effect winters brought feet of snow - one memorable winter, an ice storm split a huge tree in the front yard, narrowly missing their house. Daughters Jennifer Lynn (b. 1967) and Rebecca Jane (b. 1971) were born in Westfield.Always loving and kind, Connie was a wonderful mom and prioritized her children.She and Harry became involved in their Westfield community, and had many treasured friends. Connie was a Jaycee, a long serving deaconess at the First Presbyterian Church, and a volunteer at the local hospital and Patterson library. As the children grew older, Connie worked at a local winery, flower shop, and the library where she loved seeing neighbors and friends. Summer vacations were always to the east coast beaches she loved so much - Rehoboth Beach, DE, and Myrtle Beach, SC. These trips often included her sister Jane and her family. Connie loved the sunshine and could be found gardening tomatoes, daffodils and impatiens, playing golf with Harry, and sunning in the backyard with iced tea and a good book. Connie had many hobbies beyond her civic-minded community work; including sewing, knitting, gardening, canning, and cross-country skiing. She loved her dogs and taking walks around Westfield. There was always one (or two) underfoot; once she helped with a surprise litter in our house, caring for them in the kitchen. Their last furry friend, beloved Watson, moved with them from Westfield, NY, to Portland, OR, in 2016. They moved to be closer to their daughters in the Pacific North West and grandchildren Oscar and Georgina Romanko. They visited Chris and his family in Oklahoma and attended school graduations. In Portland, Connie enjoyed weekend blueberry pancakes, visits with Rebecca and husband Rahul (Raz). She enjoyed the sweeter things – M&Ms, Sprite, ice cream; and being around her family whether it was talking to them, writing letters, looking at photos, and listening to music (Enya). Connie always had a twinkle in her eye when contemplating a treat, and kidded around with raised eyebrows and a wink, playful with those around her. She thought of others and was always patient, kind and generous. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her over her 86 years. We love you - wife, mother, sister, and friend.Chapel and graveside services will be 11 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 24 at River View Cemetery in Portland, OR.

Mamie Emily Senter

Jun 12, 1936 - Dec 13, 2023

location-icon

Portland, OR

Mamie Emily Senter, known lovingly as ‘Scottie,’ passed peacefully in Portland, Oregon, on December 13th, 2023, at 87 years old. Scottie was born on June 12th, 1936, to her parents Mamie (Lamson) and Hubert Mariels in the town of Wenatchee, WA. At 6 months old, she moved with her family to Portland, Oregon, where she would reside for the majority of her life. She attended Joseph Lane and Woodmere Elementary Schools, and graduated from Franklin High School in the spring of 1954. After graduation, Scottie enlisted in the US Navy. She completed her basic training in Bainbridge, Maryland and was then transferred to her assignment as a Clerk at the Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida. While enlisted there, she met her first husband, James ‘Jim’ Patton, who was also enlisted in the US Navy, and serving on a Naval ship. They were married in February 1955. Months later, Scottie received an Honorable Military Discharge, to begin her new career of “Mother,” and in February 1956, she and Jim welcomed their first child, Laurie. In March of 1956, James received orders to ship out. Not knowing how long he would be away from his wife and daughter, the decision was made to move them to Comer, Georgia to live with his parents and family until he returned. It was not long until Scottie was missing her parents and family, and in August of 1956, she flew back home to Portland, Oregon to live with her parents. She decided to attend beauty school to support herself and daughter. After a period of time, Jim and Scottie divorced. In 1958, Scottie met and married Don Senter, who had a son, David, and a daughter, Sue. Both children came to visit their home many times. Together, Scottie and Don would welcome three more daughters; Mary in April of 1959, Patricia in May of 1960, and in July of 1962, Betty Jo. Scottie was a dedicated wife, mother and homemaker to her husband and children. The education of her children was very important to her, and she encouraged them in school, and in their outside interests. When her children were a little older, she pursued other careers, including Hairdresser, Safeway Bakery Clerk and Cake Decorator, Bookkeeper for JK Gill, Telephone Operator for Raptor’s Answering Service, and a Receptionist for KPTV’s Television Station, where she made many friends. She also assisted with the High 5 and Rambling Rod TV Shows at KPTV. She loved working at the station and being a part of making a difference. She began work there in 1978, and retired from the network in 2002, after 24 years of service. In the 1980’s, after all their children were grown, and were on their own, Don and Scottie divorced. Scottie was a very strong woman, and learned to live on her own and support herself. She had many skills and talents throughout her life. She was a voracious reader, (the thicker the book, the better) and could intelligently discuss many topics. She especially enjoyed History. She also quilted beautifully, (every stitch hand sewn). She would spend hours planting and weeding her flower garden (she loved to get her hands in the warm soil each spring.) She was a kind and generous person who cared for her parents, Norman Thompson and Mamie Thompson at the end of their lives, and volunteered as much as she could, donating her time to the Bradley Angle House for Women and Children, and the St. Francis Dining Hall, where she would bake 12 dozen cookies weekly. She monetarily supported Oregon Public Broadcasting, and The Humane Society. Scottie is survived by her children Sue (Josh) Logan, Laurie Watson, Mary Senter, Patricia Mansker, and Betty Jo (John) Brooks, as well as 13 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Hubert Mariels and Mamie Thompson; stepfather, Norman Thompson; brothers, Grover Mariels, Herbert Mariels, and Norman Thompson; son, David Senter; sister, Debra Cain; sisters-in-law, Gloria Thompson and Suzanne Thompson; brother-in-law, Chuck Hobbs; son-in-law, Rick Mansker; and grandson, Jeffrey Watson. Scottie will be remembered as being in her flower garden, or in her chair, with dogs or cats on either side, deeply involved with a book she’s reading and rocking contentedly with her feet on her wooden footstool. A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00am on February 23, 2024, at the Gresham Memorial Chapel, located at 257 SE Roberts Ave, Gresham, OR 97080. An Honor’s Service will take place following the Memorial Service at 2:30pm at Willamette National Cemetery, located at 11800 SE Mt. Scott Blvd., Portland, OR 97086.
