Ona F. Muffett
A funeral service for Ona F. Muffett, 95, was held on April 15, 2014, at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Reedsport, OR.
Ona was born May 25, 1918, in De Smet, South Dakota. She died April 7, 2014, in Reedsport, OR.
On August 9, 1942, she married Winfield F. Muffett. After World War II, Win and Ona located in CA. In 1948, they moved to Colton and then Molalla and bought a dairy farm which they managed together for the next 23 years. Ona was active in the Oregon Jersey Cattle Club for more than 20 years.
In 1970, Win and Ona moved to their ranch up the Smith River, out of Reedsport. One of her prized possessions was her John Deere gator which she drove around – even in her 95th year, she could be seen out pulling tansy ragwort or chopping thistles.
Genealogy was one of her hobbies. She compiled a family history and on her 90th birthday presented each of her children with their own book – truly a great gift.
But first and foremost, Ona was a dedicated and beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loved and was actively engaged with her large extended family all of whom loved her in return and will miss her greatly.
Ona is survived by daughter, Christine and Chuck Calley of Coquille, son, Win and Hjordis Muffett Jr. of Beavercreek, son Robert and Sharon Muffett of North Bend, son, Dean Muffett of North Bend, and son, John and Rose Muffett of Reedsport, 18 grandchildren and 31 great-grand children.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Win, her daughter, Nancy, and daughter-in-law, Jane Muffett.
