Goldie Ann Chaney, 101, of Baker City, died Jan. 5, 2008, at her home.

At her request, there will be no funeral. Cremation was by Eastern Oregon Pioneer Crematory.

Goldie Ann was born on Jan. 24, 1906, to Samuel and Gertie Quimby Hunt in a small cabin on Moscow Mountain at Moscow, Idaho. On the day she was born, the wind was blowing the snow into the cabin onto the bed where Goldie was born.

She grew up on the mountain and attended Hunts School through the eighth grade. Her family moved from Idaho to Montana and then to California. In California, Goldie met her husband, Julious H. Chaney.

The couple had four children: three boys and a daughter. Goldie was primarily a homemaker and mother, but she occasionally took agricultural jobs to help supplement the family’s income.

In 1954, Goldie and Julious moved to Estacada with two of their children. After Julious’ death, Goldie began relying on her daughter for help with chores and care. Her daughter eventually moved in with her, where she stayed for 20 years. In 2005, the family moved to Baker City.

Goldie was very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when she was younger and in good health. She also enjoyed spending time with her family on camping trips. She went everywhere with her family, even later in life she would travel across the state with her children.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; sons, Ronald and Dawn Chaney; grandchildren, Tamara Allen and Edward Horn; brother, Gerald Hunt; sister, Ruby Hess; and a brother, Orlee Hunt.

Survivors include her son, John Chaney, and his wife, Carol, of Baker City; daughter, Utahna Weiland, and her husband, Gerald, of Baker City; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; two brothers, Byran Hunt and Verlan Hunt; sister, Lila May Way; and many nieces and nephews.
