Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are.

Maudwae and Pete, along with their four children lived on their 7 acre ranch out in the country of the Hood River Valley.

Maudwae also enjoyed riding horses all over Oregon and Southern Washington. For years she was a big part of the Saddle Clubs with family and friends.
Maudwae worked for The Hood River County School District, became head cook for WyEast School. Back in the day when the food was made by scratch and the kids wanted seconds. To this day folks, still talk how good it was! After Maudwae retired in 1984, one of the many things she enjoyed was watching and assisting her 2 sons, Ron and Don Tanner in their race cars, winning and traveling all around the Northwest and Canada. She was their biggest fan!
