Departed: 08/23/2023 (Hillsboro)
Obituary Preview: Heaven has gained an Angel. Marylee (Badger) Kelsey passed away on August 23, 2023. She was the best wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma, aunt, and friend anyone could ask for. The rock of our family, she embodied kindness, love, and compassion to all that knew her. Our hearts will forever have a hole that could never be filled without her.
Born Tuesday, November 6, 1945, in Portland to Arthur John Badger and Arline Rosalie (Hurst) Badger, she was the youngest of three daughters. Marylee spent her childhood in the West Slope/Beaverton area and attended CE Mason, Merle Davies and graduated from Beaverton High School in 1963. She met Jim in 1962 at a High School dance and they both attended Portland State for 2 years after high school. In 1965, Jim left for Army Reserve Boot Camp and on March 18, 1966, they married. Their first apartment was in Redondo Beach right across the street from the waters of the Puget Sound – what a view they enjoyed! Marylee and Jim moved many times over the years, during which time they built their family beginning with their first beloved Saint Bernard dog, Lady Fredrika of Kelsey aka “Fred”, followed by their five children: Susan, Karin, Karol, Jim & Deirdre in 6 ½ years’ time.
In 1977 they moved for the final time to the family homestead in Beaverton where they enjoyed 45 years making memories with their children, extended family, and friends; including family gatherings, camping, and exploring. Her favorite places were in the outdoors and included the beach, Summer Lake, and her beloved Lake Owyhee. Over the years Marylee worked for Montgomery Ward and First Interstate Bank.

After moving to Beaverton, she worked at Sunset High School for a while but finally found her calling and took a job with THPRD as a Program Coordinator at the Tennis Center. She took so much pride in making sure all the tournaments and day-to-day scheduling went off without a hitch and many of her co-workers and players became her second family. After 29 years of service, she finally retired. This meant time to spend with her family, which she loved more than anything. Marylee was also blessed with two best friends since childhood, Beetle & DeDe. She always thought of the three of them as the Three Musketeers.

Charles Edward Fleming - October 20, 1949 - June 20, 2023

Departed: 06/20/2023 (Hillsboro)
Obituary Preview: Son, brother, friend, coach, husband, dad, Charlie was all of these and so much more. Husband and Dad were the roles he treasured. He loved his family and friends, but his wife and children were his life and love.
Growing up in Irving, Texas in the 1950’s Charlie set high goals for himself. He was an outstanding athlete and high scholastic achiever at MacArthur High School. Charlie was awarded a full ride academic scholarship from Texas Power & Light (TP&L - later TXU) earning a degree in Electrical Engineering and worked for TP&L for many years before beginning a long and successful career as a Financial Planner.
During his 20’s Charlie developed a love for long distance running and competed in marathons including the Boston and New York Marathons among many others.
Charlie & Sheri Bryan met and married in 1980 and began a 30-year life of love and adventure. Sheri’s position as a flight attendant for American Airlines allowed them the freedom to pursue this life of travel. Kauai, Hawaii was ‘their spot’ and they spent many vacations there with their children.
Charlie developed symptoms of Parkinson’s disease approximately 20 years ago. This disease took away many of his favorite joys --- travel, golf, running and other physical activities. He was able to spend his final years with his kids, up in the Pacific Northwest and had many more adventures and memories made. He fought a long battle with Parkinson’s, but his body could not fight any more. He left us for a place without pain or physical limitations and where he and Sheri can travel again.
Charlie will be sadly missed by his children- Carly, Taylor, sister Phyllis Fleming and brothers Kenneth (Suzanne) and Russell (Penne), nephews Michael and Shawn.
He was preceded in death by his wife Sheri, nephew Randall and parents Mac & Sylvia Fleming.

Peggy Lynn Leathers - September 25, 1955 - April 08, 2023

Departed: 04/08/2023 (Hillsboro)
Obituary Preview: In Honor of Peggy Lynn Leathers, 67; Aloha, Oregon.
After a seven-year battle with cancer, Peggy went to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 8. She died at home under the love and care of her husband, Raymond "Rayzor" Leathers. Peggy was born at Tuality Hospital in Hillsboro on September 25, 1955, to Martha Elizabeth Epler and Henry Sirus Epler. She had two brothers, Richard, ten years older, and Wesley, five years older. The family initially resided on a 69-acre farm on Mt. Richmond outside Gaston. In
'63, the family moved to Beaverton when Peggy was in the third grade.
She worked for Mears Controls after graduating from Sunset High School in '74. Then in '76, she went to work for Leupold & Stevens, assembling scopes. A few years later ('79), Ray was interviewing for a job at Leupold & Stevens, and Peggy smiled as he walked by. With that one smile—he would be forever and always hers.
In '81, Peggy and Ray were married at an outdoor wedding in her parent's backyard—in a record-breaking temperature of 107 degrees. For many years they attended Cedar Hills Christian Church. God blessed them with the birth of Sara in '83 and Tyler in '85. Peggy graced every room she walked into with the same smile and charm that so attracted Ray to her the first time he saw her. Her can-do attitude enabled her to tackle life's challenges head-on, including cancer. She was kind-hearted, even-tempered, encouraging, and always looked at the bright side of things. She was a rock to her family, and, as Ray has often said, she was "A special person."
Peggy was not into high fashion or material possessions. The pride and joy of her life was her family. Quiet times as a couple, camping with friends and loved ones, going for long drives, and enjoying the moment fulfilled her. Peggy loved her dogs—especially the German Shepherd, Ruger, who was by her side every step as she battled cancer.
Peggy was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Wesley. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, her daughter, Sara, her son, Tyler, and three grandchildren.
A celebration of life service will be at 1:00 on Wednesday, May 3, at Beaverton Foursquare Church, West Chapel. _______________________________________________ Although Peggy Lost The Battle—She Won The Fight
Peggy courageously fought a good fight against cancer for seven years. Ray, Sara, and Tyler would like to thank everyone for their support, including family, friends, doctors, and nurses, who wonderfully supported and encouraged her throughout those seven years. They will be forever grateful.

By Annette Cabodi Damm
In celebration of my dad’s life, I want to share with you many of the things he loved.
1. My dad loved his family, my mom Gloria, my brother Anthony, my sister Gina and me. He loved his parents, his sister, Margaret and husband John, their grown kids Johnny and Andy. He loved his 4 grandchildren, Trevor, Nick, Jordyn and Dylan. He loved his 2 great-daughters, Addy and Ellie. He never showed any favoritism towards any family member and expressed happiness, laughter and support.
2. He loved his friends. If you were a friend of my dad, you were a friend for life! Many of you may not realize that my dad and Chuck Alexander have been friends since high school and remained friends for the rest of his life - about 76 years. Him and Chuck even joined the Army at the same time. Some other friends of his were Darryl Orand, Bob King, Dan Dulley, Willie, Bob Eisley and so many more. He made new friends as he moved through different phases of life.
3. He even loved my friends. Roxanne was my best friend all through high school and my dad drove us all around to places like concerts, guitar practice and so on. Every time I would mention Roxanne, he would say Roxi! With a smile on his face and asking how she’s doing. 4. He loved playing games with friends, such as bunco or playing cards
5. He loved Landscaping the yard and took great pride in the beauty of it. 6. He loved to grow vegetables in the garden and was really good at it.

Amparo Miranda Vasquez - August 09, 1959 - January 11, 2023

Departed: 01/11/2023 (Hillsboro)
Obituary Preview: Con mucha tristeza anunciamos el fallecimiento de nuestra ser quería Amparo Miranda Vasquez, quien a regresado a la casa de nuestro padre celestial..
En Agosto de 1959 el hogar del Sr. Roberto Miranda y la Sra. Olivia Chavez se llenaría nuevamente de alegría por el nacimiento de una hermosa niña, a la que le pondrían el nombre de Amparo! En el estado de Michoacán vivió su niñez y adolescencia rodeada de familia, amigos, y compartiendo momentos con la abuela que jamás olvidaría. Cuando cumplió su mayoría de edad quiso mudarse a vivir en Guadalajara donde conoció a una familia que la quería como una hija y fueron unos de los años más felices de su vida.
A través de los años, Dios la condujo a mudarse al extranjero para buscar una mejor vida y llego a parar al estado de Oregon en los años 80’s. Dios le tenia preparada una sorpresa, el sueno de toda mujer se le cumplió, el regalo más grande de su vida de ser mama se le volvió realidad. Dios le regalo un hijo que después nombro a su hijo Eric (en honor al actor Eric del Castillo, uno de sus actores favoritos). Así como fueron pasando los años conoció a Salvador con quien después se casaría y viviría años muy felices al lado de su esposo y su amado hijo. Hoy que ha partido, por favor no se entristezcan, no derramen lagrimas ni se abrazen a una pena. Por el contrario, empiecen de nuevo con valentía y en memoria de Ampraro mantengan una sonrisa grande como ella siempre lo tuvo al recordar todos los buenos momentos eh historias que alguna vez compartieron con ella. Que descanse en paz Amparo Miranda Vasquez, siempre la recordaremos…
