Former Manzanita resident Lois Eileen Hallee died March 27, 2022, at age 77 in the presence of family at a care center in Portland.
Born May 20, 1944, Eileen was well-known for her goal of having a Manzanita bush planted on every lot along Manzanita Avenue. Another of her worthy goals was seeing that stray cats were spayed or neutered.
Eileen spent much of her life taking care of Tom, her marathon-running, physician husband. In doing so, she attended hundreds of runs around the country and across the globe.
A service will be held in Eileen’s honor Saturday, May 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Portland.

Eileen’s family has requested friends pursue having a bench and accompanying Manzanita bush installed at an appropriate place in the City of Manzanita. Persons interested in helping with that effort are asked to contact Paula Peek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
