Opal Ellen Halberg, 75, died March 3, 2004, at her home in Baker City.

Her private graveside service will be Tuesday at the Odd Fellows Cemetery at Myrtle Creek.

Mrs. Halberg was born at Enid, Okla., on July 6, 1928, to Jacob and Rachel Abbott. She married her high school sweetheart, Lewis Cox, in 1945 and shortly afterward moved to the West Coast.

She lived at Myrtle Creek and at Canyonville for several years before relocating in Baker City in 1991. She was a caring neighbor and enjoyed her hobby of collecting cookie jars.

Survivors include her sisters, Theda Needles and Pearl Robinson, both of San Antonio, Texas, and Audrey Hoover of Beaver, Okla.; two sons, Lewis Cox Jr. of Walla Walla, Wash., and Michael Cox of Riddle; a daughter, Bonnie Church of Condon; four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by three husbands, Lewis Cox, Bert Newton, and Bill Halberg; her sister, Ester Mock; and her brother, Richard Abbott.

Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Chapel is in charge of arrangements.
