Our precious mother, Frances Emma Shattuck (formerly Meier), age 83, passed away after a short illness on March 12, 2021. She is survived by her husband, Larry, brother Vernon, three children Steve, Laurie and Dan, grandchildren Sara, Logan and Thad, and great-grandchild Silas. She devoted her life to her family and friends, never letting anything get in the way of being a loving and supportive wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt, as well as true friend to far too many to mention.
Born in Hillsboro, Oregon, on February 8, 1938, Fran grew up and rarely left Washington County until meeting her husband, Larry. They were married September 6, 1958 and moved a few years later to Hood River, Oregon. In 1968 they moved to Beaverton, along with their three children, where the family still resides. Fran was a stay-at-home mom while her children were young, then worked outside the home for many years, always in positions where she could help others, including day care and retail services. After retirement, she and Larry spent winters in the Arizona desert, living in a travel trailer and meeting up with their many friends who also escaped the cooler northern climes. More recently she enjoyed quilting with several of her nieces and great-nieces, and looking after her grandchildren and great-grandchild.
She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at Shute Park, at a date to be announced.
