Glendora Jean Skipwith, passed away Jan. 8, 2020, she was 82. Glendora was born and raised in Upstate New York. She and her husband, Perry O’Hearn and three young children decided to “head West” and relocated to Tangent, Oregon in 1967. There her youngest two sons were born.
Once again with a true pioneer spirit she moved to Alaska in the mid 80’s, and after a couple years she decided it was time to warm up, so she then moved to Arizona. She returned home to Oregon in the early 90’s and moved to Brookings in 2014.
She was preceded in death by her husband William “Skip” Skipwith. She is survived by her 5 children; Carol Jackson of Kelso, Washington, Daniel O’Hearn of Albany, Oregon, Sandy Lange of Brookings, Oregon, William O’Hearn of Albany, Oregon and Richard O’Hearn of Newport, Oregon, along with 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
Glendora had a sunny disposition and contagious smile, she often called others “kid” regardless of their age. She volunteered throughout her life for several different organizations and community events.
Glendora will be missed by all those who had the privilege to know her.
A memorial service will be held this spring in Albany, Oregon.
