They drove their motor home to every national park in the country. They also visited some of their children abroad, lived at the Oregon Coast for several years, and returned often to their favorite city, Paris. Bill and Eileen made Salemtowne their permanent residence where Bill was an avid and accomplished golfer. He also loved to travel, fish, garden, walk in the woods, root for the Oregon Ducks, and spend time with Eileen at their home on the Oregon Coast. From youth on he fished the Metolius River, one of his cherished places in the world. He delighted in the fact that the Camp Sherman store was exactly his age. Bill also helped to build and maintain a cabin near Detroit Lake for fifty years where members of the family spent many happy times.

Her screams quickly drew attention of her mother, who was in another room, but by the time Mrs. Gilchrist arrived the child was ablaze from head to toe.
The little girl was rushed to the hospital here, but injuries were too severe and she died shortly after the noon hour. She was conscious nearly to the last.
Besides the father and mother, who came here 10 months ago from Nebraska, Dorothy leaves a younger sister, May, and her grandmother, Mrs. Ike Vincent of Salem, and grandparents in Nebras-ka, where she was born nearly six and a half years ago."

"Peter Graber Ends His Life--He Hangs Himself With Rope At His Own Home.--Anniversary of Wife's Death--His Son, Looking For Him, Finds His Body Suspended From Rafter in the Barn.--Calls to Daughter to Get Up and Get Breakfast, Then Goes to Barn, Where He Commits Himself to Eternity--No Cause for the Deed Known.--At almost the same hour of the day, and just four years from the date of the death of his wife, Peter Graber yesterday morning ended his life by hanging at his home at the southeast corner of Fourteenth street and Nebraska avenue, in this city. The deed was committed at about 6 o'clock and the body was found about fifteen or twenty minutes later by the suicide's son, Emil Graber. No cause can be assigned for the rash act, but it is supposed Mr. Graber had become temporarily affected in mind from the continuous brooding over the loss of his wife. He had also suffered from an attack of lagrippe during the past few weeks and up to last Monday has been unable to work.
Shortly after 5 o'clock yesterday morning Mr. Graber arose and went to the kitchen, where he built a fire and made other preparations for the family breakfast. He then stepped to the foot of the stairway, and as was his usual custom, called his eldest daughter, a girl of seventeen, saying: `My little Martha, come on.' It is thought the father then went to the barn and ended his life, as he had left the house when the young daughter came down stairs a few moments later and was not again seen alive. Emil Graber got up about twenty minutes after his father and went out into the yard to cut some grass for a pet deer. Upon going to the barn to feed the deer he noticed his father's slippers standing at the foot of a ladder leading to the hay loft. Failing to receive a response to his calls he went upstairs and was horrified to find the lifeless body of his father hanging at the end of a rope, the other end of which had been tied to a crosspiece on the rafters. The son at once gave the alarm, but the body was not cut down until the arrival of Coroner Clough, who did not deem it necessary to hold an inquest.
How Deed Was Done--The general surroundings in the loft of the barn showed that the suicide stood on a small box while he fastened one end of the rope to the timbers above and after making a noose and placing it around his neck he stepped off the box and slowly strangled to death. When found his feet were within a few inches of the barn floor and his heels touched the side of the box from which he had stepped.
Mr. Graber had at no time given an intimation of his intention to commit suicide, except that he made known his business affairs to his children on Thursday, saying he wished them to be conversant with his affairs so that they could more easily manage them in the event that he should be taken away suddenly.
The deceased came to the United States from France in 1891. After spending three years in Kansas he came to this city, where has since resided. He was aged 64 years, and leaves four children, Peter and Emil Graber, both of whom have attained the age of majority; Martha, aged 17, and Leona, aged 11 years.
The funeral will be held from the residence tomorrow at 2 p.m., and the remains will be interred at Lee Mission cemetery." DOS Apr 29, 1905 1:3 s/o John Graber; widower; born France; laborer; died of suicide by hanging per D/C #531

The deceased was born at Barnsville, Ohio, January 21, 1846, and was married to Rev. Geo. W. Grannis on March 21, 1872. Batesville, Arkansas, was their first pastorate and in 1874 they were transferred to Walla Walla, Wash. In 1888 the Oregon Conference located them at Astoria, later serving at Astoria, Portland, and Salem, consecutively. In 1901 they removed to Pittsburg. During all this time Mrs. Grannis has been a devoted Christian woman, living a life of helpfulness, with no care for herself. A few weeks ago she accompanied her husband to the West, requesting that if her final summons came while here, that she might sleep with the old pioneers at rest in Lee Mission ceme-tery.

Leach, district superintendent, in charge, assisted by members of the G.A.R. Interment was in the Jason Lee cemetery. Rev. Grannis died at his home in Turlock, Calif., Friday night and was laid to rest beside his first wife.
Rev. Grannis was born at Hannahs-town, Butler county, Penn., August 24, 1947 and enlisted with Company E. 193rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry when he was only 16 years old, being mustered out of service at Pittsburgh in November, 1864. Shortly after he moved to Missouri with his parents and was licensed to preach and later ordained by the St. Louis conference of the Methodist Episcopal church. In 1872 he went to Arkansas and in 1874 was transferred to the Pacific north-west, became pastor of the Methodist church at Walla Walla, Wash., spending 14 years in eastern Washington, including four years as presiding elder and pastor at Boise City and Canyon City, Idaho. He was trans-ferred to the Oregon conference in 1888, serving for 13 years as pastor in Astoria, Salem and Portland. For two years he was field agent for Willamette university and in recogni-tion of his services, was awarded the title of Doctor of Divinity.
Seeking a change for his health, he returned to the Pittsburgh conference in 1901, holding several pastorates and building two churches in addition to taking a leading part in industrial work in which he was engaged when the slogan "safety first" first came into existence. He led the fight for one day's rest in seven for postal employees while prominently engaged in the work of the Alleghany Sunday rest association, becoming general field secretary for the Lord's Day Alliance.
In 1910 he married Katherine S. Stannard, of Columbus, Ohio, one son being born, Frank L. Grannis, graduate of Willamette university and at present principal of the Cottage Grove high school. While in Turlock he served as department commander for California and Nevada from 1924 to 1925 and was commander of the Long Beach G.A.R. for two years. He was recently appointed assistant adjutant general, national office of the G.A.R. and commander of the Turlock post. Civic activities also interested him and he served as president of the Turlock high school board and held membership in the chamber of commerce of that city. He affiliated with the Masonic order while in Oregon in 1876 and served as chaplain of the Turlock lodge for several years. Services at Turlock Sunday were in charge of the Masonic lodge of that city. Besides his widow and son he is survived by two brothers, Samuel Grannis, of Swissvale, Penn., and William Grannis, of Los Angeles and two sisters, Mrs. G.G. Brewer, Long Beach, Calif., and Mrs. Ira Baker of Inglewood, Calif." CJ Nov 23, 1927 7:4

"SALEM - Daniel McKay Green died July 31, 2003 at age 52 after a 14-month bout with cancer. Dan was born and raised in Salem. He attended Baker and McKinley Elementary schools, Leslie Junior High and graduated from South Salem High School in 1968. As a child, he enjoyed Cub Scouts, being an acolyte at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, baseball, and always playing the piano, beginning his lessons at age 6. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1972 with a degree in Music Composition. After college, he toured with a successful rock ‘n’ roll band, the Wings of Freedom, for several years, then returned to Salem in 1977 to join the family business, Capitol Chevrolet Cadillac.
Dan was truly loved by all who knew him. His remarkable sense of humor -- including a spot-on knack for imitating and skewering the pompous -- may have had something to do with this, but more likely it was simply the result of Dan’s genuine love for and acceptance of all people, from all walks of life. He was accepted by all, because he accepted all.
Dan’s musical talent was legendary: classically trained but with a love for all genres, he was a wonderful pianist and performer, yet entirely self-effacing about his genius. Others may have taken the spotlight, but those who knew him -- and knew music -- understood that Dan was the soul and spirit of any group he was in.
In music, in business, and in life, Dan was a trouper. Even during his last year, Dan never uttered a word of complaint, of anger, or self-pity. What most of us would call an ordeal, Dan referred to as “a new adventure” -- and he meant it. In short, that’s the kind of guy Dan was: whether you were headed uphill or downhill or around a curve, Dan was someone you’d like to have at your side.
Dan is survived by his parents, Mary Lou and Lester Green; brother, Jim and his children, James and Elle; sister, Leslie Dinsdale and her sons, Matthew and Alex Casebeer, all of whom, inspired in part by their uncle Dan, have pursued their own paths in music. Dan’s wife, Sherre, died in 1996.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Wed., Aug. 6 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. If you wish to honor Dan’s life, the family asks that you make a donation to the Humane Society of the Willamette Valley, PO Box 13005 Salem, OR 97309, where Dan contributed countless hours as a volunteer, or the University of Oregon School of Music, 1225 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-1225.

"8-year-old Tammy Green dies after lengthy illness--`She wanted to live until the Fourth, but she didn't make it.'
Tammy Green, 8-year-old Turner girl who had struggled with various illnesses for years, died Monday.
Her aunt, Carrie Little, said, `She kept saying she wanted to see the fireworks one more time.'
Tammy had been hospitalized at Salem Hospital Memorial Unity for the past month. Her condition had been deteriorating since a trip to Disneyland last October. She had cervical fibromatosis, a hardening tumor in her neck.
Dorothy Green, her mother, said `She was quite the little fighter. She was teasing Dr. (John) Schulte and everything.'
`She told me yesterday she was tired of fighting. She was ready to go. She wasn't scared. She was more scared for her dad and me than for herself.'
`She kept telling us she didn't want to leave us. She knew she was going.'
Her aunt said, `People who visited her in the hospital had given her money. She had accumulated $30."
Her dad asked, `What do you want me to buy you?' She said, `Just buy me pink roses for my grave.' She loved pink roses.
Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Green, sons Steven and Brian and daughter Kathleen live on three acres at 12354 Summit Loop Road SE, five miles south of Turner.
Tammy was a 2nd grader at Cloverdale Elementary School until illness forced her to quit. She had attended the Turner Freeway Assembly of God Church.
She was born in Great Falls, Mont., but had lived all but six months in Oregon. The family home was close to where both her parents grew up.
Her grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Daryl Forman, Salem, and Mr. and Mrs. William J. Bales, Aumsville. Great-grandparents are Mrs. Alice Holodnick, Havre, Mont., and John Green, Dallas.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Barrick mortuary, with interment in Lee Mission Cemetery. The casket will be open noon to 8 p.m. Thursday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the mortuary." SJ Jul 4, 1979 3B:1
