Anne J. Tiller
Anna Johanna (Olson) Tiller passed away on April 16, 2005, at the Hood River Care Center. She was 87 years of age.
Anna was born to Carl August and Emma Christina (Vallin) Olson on Nov. 2, 1917, in Yacolt, Wash. She grew up on the family farm with her nine brothers and sisters and went to school in a one room schoolhouse. She graduated from Battle Ground High School.
She met her husband, “Sarge” Tiller, in Vancouver, Wash., while he was stationed there in the service. They married on Jan. 1, 1942. Four children followed: son, Buddy, and daughters, Kathy, Winnie and Kerry.
They moved to Cascade Locks in the early 1950s. Anna was a waitress for over 50 years and owned her own place at one time: Tiller’s Kitchen. She loved people, her flowers and her garden, but her greatest joy was her family, especially her grandchildren, with whom she spent many happy hours. She lived a long and happy life full of grace and dignity. She loved deeply and was deeply loved.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Sarge, in 1962 and her son, Buddy, in 1997.
She is survived by her daughters, Kathy Stutters (Jim) of Cascade Locks, Winnie Hawkins (Bruce) of Brightwood and Kerry Schenk (Jim) of North Bend; grandchildren Karena, Tara, Grant, Linnea, Lora, Dan, Katrina, Angel and Carl; 21 great-grandchildren; and very special friend Patt Hawkins of Rockaway Beach.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
