Subject: Drella Smith Shader obit.

Hi again Kari,

When it rains, it pours. I had started a message to you already about our most recent previous exchanges. Sorry that I never got back to you about the Moore data and Colston,Coulson, etc. messages. I did follow up on the Colston, Coulson data, but then got sidetracked on other research.

However, I did finally get the obituary for Drella Shader and she is George and Lenna Smith's daughter. The researcher did not find an obit for Lenna.

I have attached Drella's below. It also identifies surviving sisters and brothers. Doris is listed as Alma Davis instead of Alma Dorris. Mildred Marie (Smith) Culp, her husband Harold Haw___ Culp, Alma Dorris (Smith) Trimp, and her husband Ambrose Ludwick Trimp are also all in the Oregon Death Index. I thought that I had found a possible match for Joseph in the ODI, but it gives his middle name as Fre___ and other records give W. I also found a Jack R. Smith in Clackamas Co., but the phone number is no longer working.

I phoned the Mt. Scott Funeral Home and they are going to mail me photocopies of all the information that they have on Drella or any of her other family members except Social Security Number, which as they do not know is available free online. But I won't tell them that until they have sent the other information. I also phoned Lincoln Memorial Park Cemetery but they don't have any information except the location of her grave. They are checking for the other family members to see if they are buried there, too.

I have also emailed Jeffrey Bryant who has some data on them -- particularly Joseph Wilson Smith -- at his Hood River families page.

I have also requested a lookup in the Hood River newspapers for an obituary for Lenna.

Here is my transcription of the obit:

The Oregonian Newspaper, 22 Aug 1959, Funeral Notices:
Shader -- August 21, Drella M., 6705 SE 57th; daughter of Mrs. Lenna Smith; sister of Mildred M. Culp and Alma Davis Trimp, Joseph W. and Jack R. Smith. Friends invited to services Monday, 11 am, at the Chapel of Mt. Scott Funeral Home, Foster Rd. at SE 59th. Interment Lincoln Memorial Park.

And here is my data on George and Lenna's family with the addition of the information that I have gathered since getting Drella's obituary.
