Bayonne Claire Stroschine
September 17, 1924 – May 27, 2017

Stayton – Bayonne passed away at her home in Mehama in the early morning hours on Saturday, May 27. It was her wish to be home in her final days, and she peacefully left this world under the watchful eye and gentle care of her son Daryl. Bayonne’s grandson Thomas, and his four beautiful daughters were close by throughout. They were a loving presence and huge support for both Daryl and Bayonne.

Bayonne Claire (Kindle) was born in Hamill, SD. She was the oldest of six children born to Clarence and Millie (Koudelka) Kindle. Her growing up years were spent in the south-central area of South Dakota, which was where she also completed her high school education. In the early 40’s she met her future husband, John Stroschine. On New Year’s Eve in 1942, they married in (THE place to be married) “Valentine”, Nebraska. Their two children, Judy and Daryl, were born in South Dakota in 1944 and 1949. In 1954 the family moved to Anderson, CA. Later that same year they relocated to the Willamette Valley. For a short-time the family lived in Shaw, then in 1955 they settled permanently on Fern Ridge Road in Mehama. Bayonne and John worked at Stayton Canning for many years. They both retired from that company, and then spent their time traveling and enjoying their home and families. She was a devoted wife and mother, and her adoration and love for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren came above all else.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John Stroschine, daughter, Judy Shippy, and brothers, Budd and Louie Kindle.

Survivors include her son; Daryl: grandchildren; Jon, Thomas, Bill Summit, and their mother, Georgia Hay, Todd (Janette) Shippy, Lori (Jeff) Rieckman, and their father, Chan Shippy: great-grandchildren; Merrick, Alea, Audrah, Rainah, Avahlyn, Evangeline, Cierra, Freedom, William, Waylon, Cole (Lacy), Rachel, Sarah: great-great-grandson; Mason: sisters: Beverly Boes, Darien Anderson and Bonnie (Larry) Riggs; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Bayonne was an active member of the community, and a long-time member of the Mehama Community Church. Her wit and wisdom was a comfort to many in the Mehama area.

High on the list of things Bayonne loved, was the time she spent with her granddaughters, Audrah, Rainah, Avahlyn, and Evangeline. They loved hanging out with Gamma, and knew exactly where the cookie jar was. Which, by the way, was always full. Cookies in hand, they would settle in and watch cartoons with their Gramma. SpongeBob SquarePants was the favorite of all. After a while, Daryl noticed “SpongeBob” would be on even when Bayonne was there by herself.

She enjoyed traveling, cooking, art and music. She was a skilled painter, and many of her works adorn the walls of her home. Her love of music inspired her to compose a little song of her own. The lyrics go like this: I want to live in a house on a hill by the side of the road, I want to live in a house on a hill by the side of the road, And be a friend to man. I want to go to a church on a hill by the side of the road, I want to go to a church on a hill by the side of the road, And be a friend to man. She did…and, she was.

A memorial service will be held at 12 noon on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 at the Mehama Community Church 11336 Morris St. SE Mehama. Interment will take place at a site beside husband, John and daughter, Judy at the Colome City Cemetery in Colome, SD. Serving the family, North Santiam Funeral Service, Stayton.
