    • [Email from Kim Cortez on 12 December 2012]

      My father told me that his grandma Rollins daughter left and never came back, Louise, she had 2 sons. One died at an early age, and the other was Jay, which she left him. Grandma Rollins raised him; my father lived with her as well.

      My father told he that his grandma Rollins and her husband Oscar lived in Florence, Oregon for a while. Floy graduated from the Silulaw High school but he did not know what year. Grandma Rollins worked as a cook a restaurant. This was before they moved to Alaska. My father and his brothers were born in Alaska, when they moved to Oregon they stayed with Aunt Oat for a while. Grandma Rollins, Jay and my dad Edgar moved to Portland where Uncle Bud had a taxicab service. They move back to Creswell Oregon. In 1962 Grandma Rollins dies of a stroke at the age of 76. She was a very kind, caring, loving woman who would have giving you her last dollar if you were in need, she also was a very good cook, she was well known for her 7 layer cakes!
      She worked at several restaurants in her time and each one of them did not want her to leave, the customers loved her too. They would often call and ask when she worked so they would know when to come and dine. My dad was very proud of her, and was honored to have been her grandson..
