Haynes, Marvel E. Ward Mrs. – Obituary

Baker City, Oregon

Marvel E. Ward Haynes, 93, a longtime Baker City resident, died March 19, 2001, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.

Disposition was by cremation at Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Chapel and Crematory.

There will be a family service at a later date.

Mrs. Haynes was born July 19, 1907. She married Thomas “Ben” Haynes in May of 1933.
For 67 years they were constantly together, traveling and exploring life side by side. In the early 1970s they moved to Baker City from Kingman, Ariz. The two of them shared many hobbies throughout their life together, the most memorable being rockhounding. A collection of some of the pieces they found during their many years of hunting together decorated the walls of their home.

Mrs. Haynes also enjoyed sewing, reading, gardening and the many visits from family and friends that blessed their doorstep.

She spoke very little of herself. Perhaps this is because she made Ben her life. There was rarely a moment spent apart, and his interests were hers as well. Their life together was a partnership to be admired and respected. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Mrs. Haynes was preceded in death by her husband, Ben, who died Jan. 19, 2001.

She is survived by her nieces and their husbands, Marilyn and Keith Shollenberger and Cindy and Jack Henner, all of Baker City; a sister and her family, Helen Peterson of Portland; and many other nieces, nephews and their extended families.

Contributions in Mrs. Haynes’ memory may be made to the Blue Mountain Old Time Fiddlers Association in care of Gray’s West & Co., 1500 Dewey Ave.
