La Grande, Oregon

Lyle Gayle Sanderson, 91, of La Grande, died April 3 at a local care home after an extended illness. At his request there will be no public services. A private celebration of his life is planned for a later date at the Summerville Cemetery.

Known as Sandy, he was born July 26, 1915, to Sylvia A. (Neiderer) and David L. Sanderson at Sanderson Springs near Summerville. Sandy did not know a stranger. He had a quick smile and greetings for everyone he met.

He is survived by his companion of 16 years, Elma Sherwood of La Grande, and other relatives and friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children in Portland or a charity of choice in care of Daniels Chapel of the Valley, 1502 Seventh St., La Grande 97850.
