Buckley, Doris – Obituary

Enterprise, Oregon

Doris Buckley died at a care home in Phoenix, Ariz. on Jan. 25, 2007. She was 75.

Mrs. Buckley was born in La Grande on Sept. 18, 1931, to Albert and Anna Gake. She lived in La Grande for a few years until the family moved to Enterprise and then to Joseph, where she attended school. During the war, the family moved to Huntington where her father worked for the Union Pacific Railroad. She graduated from Huntington High School.

She married Glen Buckley in 1949. They worked on ranches in Wallowa County for a number of years, and then moved to California.

In the early sixties, they moved to Black Canyon, Ariz., due to health reasons. During that time they made many trips to Wallowa County to visit family.

Mr. Buckley died in 1987. Mrs. Buckley continued to live in Black Canyon until her health forced her to move to a care center.

She continued to visit Wallowa County until her health prevented her from doing so. She and her husband both loved the mountains and enjoyed hunting and fishing.

Mrs. Buckley is survived by her sister Virginia Lampkins of La Grande, niece Linda Noble of Baker City and nephew Larry Lampkins of Haines, Alaska.

A memorial service will be held at Bowman Funeral Home in Enterprise on Feb. 10 at 11 a.m.
