They were married on Nov. 22, 1951 at the Buena Vista Methodist Church. Buena Vista is an unincorporated community on the Willamette River a few miles south of Independence, Ore. Lillian comes from a pioneer family, and Buena Vista was named by her great-grandfather, Reason B. Hall, who also started Halls Ferry, now known as the Buena Vista Ferry.
Lillian and Charles were longtime residents of Albany, Ore., and were the owners of Red’s Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning. They moved to Newport after retirement.
They are the parents of Kimberly Christensen and Kevin Myers (deceased). They have three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
