Fay Emma Flint, 100 of Gresham OR, passed away on Thursday, April 3, 2014.
Fay was born on February 24, 1914 in Wirt, Oklahoma. She grew up in Idaho and moved to Oregon around 1945. She was the first of seven children born to Timothy and Grace Jordan. She only got to complete the seventh grade because she had to quit school to help her Mother with the other children. She married Charles Ilett around 1932 and she had four children, Lola, Eugene, John and Marilyn from that marriage. They were divorced and she moved to Oregon around 1945. She married Ivan Bruch in 1946 and had one child in 1948, Jenean, from that second marriage. She was widowed in April 1973. She married Louis Schadewitz around 1975 and moved from Portland to Condon, Oregon and later moved to The Dalles, Oregon and lived there for over 20 years. She was widowed again, and then married Carl Flint. She was widowed from Carl in 2000. She moved from The Dalles in 2001 to Gresham into Fairlawn Assisted Living to be closer to her daughter and son-in-law, Jenean and Doug Christian, and her granddaughter and her husband Rachel and Robert Ramsey, and her two great granddaughters, Rylee Ann and Ella Raeann Ramsey.
Fay loved her family more than anything. She also enjoyed visiting the Oregon Coast, watching and feeding the birds, working in her beautiful flower garden, making quilts and hundreds of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls for charity and for her family and friends. She loved animals. She always had a cat or two, and was “adopted” by many strays.
She is survived by her three daughters; fourteen grandchildren and many great grandchildren.
