Mae V. Elliott, 85, of Lebanon, Oregon passed away peacefully at Lebanon Bridge Creek Memory Care surrounded by her family of caregivers and her sister, Jacke, of Sweet Home. She was born in Manchester, New Hampshire to Jack and Regina Margarita Blasco.
She will be remembered for her life of service, starting in 1950, she joined the United States Army to serve as a student nurse in Tokyo, Japan during the Korean Conflict. She served until 1953. After raising her family, she served 40 years as a Lic. LVN Caregiver in Southern California.
After a stroke in 2007, she retired and traveled. In 2011, she moved to Foster, and then to Lincoln City to be near her son and the ocean. She loved walking her dog along the Oregon Coast at sunset.
Mae has been a resident of Bridge Creek Memory Care since 2013. Because of her need to serve, she quickly offered assistance to her own caregivers helping them make beds “The Army Way,” folding clothes, pushing carts, and caring for her fellow residents.
She is survived by her son, Russell Elliott, of Lincoln City; daughter, Judy Fosbenner, of Jacksonville, Florida; sister, Jacke Leo, of Sweet Home; brother, John, and his wife, Rita Ferguson, of Bow, New Hampshire; four grandchildren; one great-grandchild; and her best friend of over 50 years, Darlene Bolen, of Ventura, California. She will be missed.
Mae was preceded in death by mother Regina Margarita Blasco; father Jack Ferguson; and many aunts and uncles in New Hampshire.
Her cremains will be given to the sea at a later date.
Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling arrangements.
