Edward Conway Ankrom, 85, a longtime Halfway resident, died Dec. 22, 2000, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.

His memorial service will be Thursday at 1 p.m. at the Halfway Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. President Lon Nalder of the LDS Church will officiate. Disposition was by cremation at the Eastern Oregon Pioneer Crematory.

Mr. Ankrom was born Sept. 17, 1915, at Salem, W.Va., to Connie Eli Ankrom and Bertha Maude Matheny.

While he was a young boy he, along with his family, moved to Augusta, Ill., where they lived until he was six years old. From there they moved to Michigan. When he was 19 he, like many other young men of the times, spent a summer in the wheat fields in Texas and through the Dakotas. From there he moved to the West Coast, where he went to work in the defense plants during World War II. After this period of his life he started driving truck and worked for many companies until he went to work for Darigold, where he worked until his retirement in 1972.

He moved to Halfway in 1977, where he met and married Lois Colyer in 1978.

Mr. Ankrom is survived by his wife, Lois Ankrom; a son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Donna Ankrom of Snohomish, Wash.; a stepson and daughter-in-law, Jay and Carolyn Short of Trout Run, Pa.; a grandson, Kelly Ankrom of Marysville, Wash.; a granddaughter, Tierney Ankrom of Snohomish; three step-grandchildren, Cody, Like and Rosie Short of Trout Run; a sister and brother-in-law, Jine and Louis Basman of Richland; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Eli and Bertha Ankrom; and by two sisters, Marjorie Ankrom and Genevieve Ankrom Stewart.
