    • Obituary:
      Stayton, OR - On Saturday morning, April 20th, Helen Eunice Sachet passed away peacefully in her room at Mountain Creek Care Home in Stayton, Oregon. Her family and friends will keep her in their hearts and memories as a loving and hard working teacher, mother, grand- and great-grandmother.

      Helen was born on October 2, 1917 in Richfield, Idaho to Fountain and Eunice Stewart. She became an adult during the Great Depression, and married Frank Sachet just prior to the start of World War II. Helen, Frank and six children lived in the Scio area from 1950 into the 1970's. Frank passed away in 1971. In 1995, Helen moved from her home & three acres on Thomas Creek to Stayton to be closer to her daughter Fran Thomas and her support resources. Helen is survived by five children and their families including twelve grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, most of whom live in the Pacific Northwest.

      Upon retirement from teaching at Scio High School and working for the State of Oregon, Helen spent her time volunteering with the local library, historical and art organizations, genealogy research, traveling, painting, crafts, and participating in the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Helen recently completed her tenth year as a member of DAR. As a member of the Greatest Generation, she was a living example of dedication to thrift, hard work, public service, generosity, education and laughter. She retained her wit and memories through age 95. Helen attributed her survival into her 90's, not to having been a redhead, but to ?good genes' and frequent helpings of ice cream.

      A memorial service to celebrate Helen's life and times will be held at a later date. Private interment will be in Franklin Butte Cemetery, Scio. Contributions may be made in Helen's name to the Scio Historical Society, Stayton Public Library Foundation, or Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter 7-045-OR. Serving the family, North Santiam Funeral Service, Stayton.
