Our dear mother, Mary, Louise Banks, was placed in God's hands on February 6, 2012.
Mary's passion was sewing. She designed and made a 7-pocket purse, and received orders from as far as Florida. She also loved to shop, visit coffee shops, and all animals, except snakes! She enjoyed camping, and loathed doing dishes.
Her cinnamon rolls could have won her 1st place in any baking contest.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Carl A. Banks. She is survived by two sisters; Sandy Schmoller and Claudia Lawson, as well as three children; Doug Banks, Linda Poulson and Kathleen Ewart; four grandchildren, Brian and Cole Banks, Emily and Sam Poulson; two great-grandchildren; Mackenzie and Troy. She also leaves behind her cat companion, "Precious".
Arrangements under the direction of Young's Funeral Home, Tigard, OR.
