OBITLongWEBCarroll Jaylene Long, 78, passed away Feb. 19 at Harney District Hospital.

Carroll was born April 22, 1936, in Denver, Colo.

Carroll’s occupation as a waitress and journeyman checker made her many people’s favorite with her work ethic, and positive, lively and spirited disposition.

Carroll was always known for her creativity with her afghans, ceramics, or being a seamstress working without patterns or making her own. She could be found doing her crossword puzzle every morning, crocheting throughout the day, and watching her soap opera every afternoon.

Carroll’s claim to fame was when she worked as a waitress at the Arrowhead Hotel in March 1973. When the hotel caught fire, she climbed the stairs to the conference room to evacuate the people on the second floor. She then performed the honest thing to do by ringing up the 25 cents a customer had given her for a cup of coffee into the register before evacuating herself,  which is where her children get their honesty.

Carroll is survived by her children, Cheryl Ann Goad of Burns, Robert Jay (RJ) Long of Burns, Jerry Lee Long of Streator, Ill., William Jack (Bill) Long of Burns, and Donna Kay Schubert of Seattle, Wash.; 12 grandchildren, Tamara Kline, Sheree Goad, Mareana Harris, Scarlet Andersen, Levi Long, Dani Long, Jordan Long, Jenna Long, Joshua Long, Azealea Long, Tahnee Brock and Shanna Schubert; and 15 great-grandchildren.

Carroll was preceded in death by her son, Danny Forrest (DJ) Long.


OBITVoglerWEBHenry Conrad Vogler III, 95, passed away March 3 at Harney District Hospital following a brief illness.

Henry was born on Sept. 24, 1919, in Connell, Wash., to Henry C. Vogler Jr. and Pearl E. Gipson Vogler. He and his sister, Helen,  grew up and were educated in Connell. He graduated from Washington State University in 1952 after serving in the U.S. Army during World War II.

Henry married Ruth O. Jordan Aug. 31, 1942. On March 1, 1950, he moved the family to Burns. His life work was with, and for, his parents in ranching and farming in Connell, Echo, and the Island Ranch in Burns.

He was well-known  for his pranks, jokes and stories. He enjoyed traveling, reading and playing cards. He was a member of the Holy Family Catholic Church, the American Legion Post No. 63, and the Burns Elks Lodge.

He is survived by his children, Connie (Earl) Barber, Joyce (Hank) Dickerson, Pamela Harper, Janice Vogler, Henry Vogler IV, and Bonnie (Woody Adams) Vogler; as well as 16 grandchildren, and 30 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Helen Figg; wife, Ruth; and grandson, H.C. Vogler V.

At his request, no services will be held.


Joann Elaine Miller, 77, passed away March 9.

Joann was born July 28, 1937, in Albert Lea, Minn., to George E. and Myrtle C. (Morriem) Nelson. She attended Albert Lea High School, and upon graduation, she moved to Chicago, Ill. After marrying, she moved to Eugene, where she raised her family, later living in Washougal, Wash. and Crane, before settling in Bend more than a year and a half ago.

Joann was an administrative assistant when she wasn’t running her horse ranch. In 1980, Joann served as president of Base Area No. 2 Hospital Guild Sacred Heart Hospital in Eugene. She served as the president of the Oregon Quarter Horse Association from 1981-1982. She enjoyed modeling, quilting, making porcelain dolls, arts and crafts, horseback riding, buckaroos and her animals.

Joann is survived by her daughter, Kim (Phil) Kraemer of Bend; son, Michael (May) Edwards of Monroe, Wash.; daughter, Andrea (Randy) Osborne of Truckee, Calif; sister, Helen (Bill) Garriott of Merrill; four grandchildren, Alex (Amanda) Loomis of Dallas, Texas, Katherine Loomis of Chicago, Ill., Isaac and Mitchel Osborne of Truckee, Calif.; and two step-granddaughters.

Joann was preceded in death by her parents, George and Myrtle Nelson; and brother, Paul Nelson.
