Honoring Mary Louise Kreth

Chehalem Senior Center is honoring Mary Kreth. Mary passed away on Dec. 24, 2011.

Senior Program Specialist Matt Compton said, "It was pretty common for Mary to come to the senior center every day we were open and attended nearly every event we hosted. To say that she was dedicated to the community would be an understatement. Mary was a great friend and will be missed."

Mary started volunteering at the senior center four years ago.

Mary often would help sort books in the library. She managed the ongoing group puzzle and involved herself in every youth activity the senior center has coordinated.

"But most of all, Mary was a great spokesperson for the senior center," said Matt. "She prided herself on being an engaging person. She made it a personal project to meet everyone she could and made sure that every one met knew about the programs and services that we offered."

A memorial service will be held on Friday at the senior center. The immediate family will be holding a private memorial at a later date. Condolences may be send to 18100 Hillside Drive, Newberg, OR 97132.
