Ione E. Hershberger

August 26, 1921 – July 14, 2019

On the Lord’s day, July 14, 2019, Ione Evelyn Hershberger went home to heaven. Recently she had lived in Sublimity’s Marian Estates for many years. She and husband, Perry, built a home near Aumsville before that, retiring from California in the early 1980s.

Ione was born in Oakland, CA on August 26, 1921. She was raised by Burleigh and Clara Sprague. She attended Claremont Grade School and University High in Oakland, graduating in 1941. For ten years Ione worked jobs including: sales at Wards, delivery person, and secretarial positions for a commercial printing company, hardware store and CA DMV.

On June 28, 1951, she and Perry Hershberger were married. They had been married almost 62 years in 2013 at the time of Perry’s death.  A son, Gary, also preceded them in death in 2002. She is survived by brother in laws Glen Hershberger and Gene Hershberger, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.

Ione had many interests including: fishing, bowling, knitting, crocheting and square dancing.  In her later years she collected dolls and teddy bears and friends…of all ages.  Much of her time was spent sending cards of encouragement to others, and listening to sermons online.  She was a member of Willamette Valley Baptist Church in Aumsville, where she will be greatly missed. Her laugh will fondly be remembered.

A graveside service will be held on Friday, July 19, 2019 at Lone Oak Cemetery in Stayton.  Contributions may be made to Willamette Valley Baptist Church or Union Gospel Mission.  North Santiam Funeral Service in Stayton is serving the family.
