Sympathy Saturday - Harry Whiteside "White"

Harry O. White was born Harry O. Whiteside, a son of Samuel Stanton Whiteside and Mary "Mae" Zimmeth and was my first cousin, once removed. The obituary is from the Coos Bay, Oregon "World."

September 20, 2000 Harry O. White.  Graveside services have been held for Harry White, 94, of Sixes. Interment was held at Port Orford Cemetery.  He was born Feb. 5, 1906, in Mich. He died Sept. 15, 2000, in Sixes. Mr. White grew up around Flint, Michigan, and lived in Colorado for awhile before moving to Oregon when he was a young man. When he met his wife Frances (Curry) in Bandon they married in Nevada and settled in Elk River. He was a longtime resident of Elk River Road, living on his dairy ranch. He was a hard-working rancher, milking his cows by hand and helping transport milk products around the area. He also worked at the old mill for awhile in Elk River before he retired. Harry and Frances stayed in the area all of their 60 years together before she died in 1996. He is survived by his friends and those who cared for him.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Frances; and his five brothers and sisters.  Memorial contributions can be made to a charity of choice. Arrangements are under the direction of Amling/Schroeder, Bandon Chapel, 347-2907.
