Clymer, Doris Schnebly – Obituary

Doris Schnebly Clymer, 99, of Issaquah, Washington, died Sunday May 18, 2008 after a short illness.

The Clymer’s favorite areas of study included the Oregon Trail (Doris had five great-great grandparents who traveled to the Ellensburg area via the trail), the Nez Perce Trail and Chief Joseph, the Lewis and Clark Expedition (Doris won an award for her research from the Lewis and Clark Society), the Astorians, the Fur Trade, Narcissa...
