June 17, 1922-Sept. 25, 2004

PENDLETON - A private graveside service for Edna Marie McClintock was held Monday at Olney Cemetery.

Miss McClintock, 82, a lifelong Pendleton resident, died Saturday, Sept. 25, 2004.

She was born June 17, 1922, at Pendleton to William and Stella McClintock. She was the granddaughter of William Henry and Mary Ann Fix Cargill.

She served as the family record and date keeper even though she was blind. She enjoyed her music, which she played by ear, and visiting her friends and having them visit her. She spent many years collecting bracelets, records and cups given by friends. She also collected bird tapes and records and even called herself and others "birdie" at times. Family and home were very special to her and her family's visits home were always too short for her.

Survivors include several cousins, including Beverly McCloud of Pendleton, caregiver, Elaine Urban of Pendleton, Mary Ella Johnson of Heppner, Dick Johnson of Hermiston, David Tachella of Pendleton and Millie Simmons Burden of Pilot Rock; as well as many others not in the immediate area.

Burns Mortuary of Pendleton was in charge of arrangements.
