Sandra “Cass” Burke, 62, of Sumpter, died Sept. 1, 2003, at her home.
At the family’s request, disposition was by cremation at Eastern Oregon Pioneer Crematory. A private memorial service will be scheduled later.
Cass was born March 31, 1941.
She was a wonderful mom, “the best on the block,” always taking time to color or play with her children.
Cass spent the last years of her life with her husband, Bo, and friends near Whitney. She enjoyed entertaining her loved ones and will be greatly missed for her sense of humor, her amazing zest for life, and let’s not forget her wonderful talents in the kitchen. Cass worked at Borello’s Restaurant in Sumpter.
Cass is survived by her husband, Raymond “Bo” Bohanman; close friends, Kathy Smith and Bonnie Quesenberry; daughters, Karen (Kelly) Mayo of Corvallis, and Marta Thompson of Albany; a sister, Lynn Phillips, of Susanville, Calif.; grandchildren, Levi Easton and Ryann (Joe) Johnson, both of Redmond, and Travis Easton of Bend; and great-grandchildren, Jackie, Christopher and Alana Easton, and Justin, Destiny and Eric Johnson.
Memorial contributions may be made to Pathway Hospice, through Gray’s West & Co. Pioneer Chapel, P.O. Box 726, Baker City, OR 97814.
