Obituary of Minnie Charlyene Headlee

Minnie Charlyene Headlee passed away April 18, 2022, two days shy of her 98th birthday.

She was born April 20, 1924 to Charles & Lillie (Gourdin) Scott in Primero, Colorado.

Minnie grew up in Rainier, Oregon. She was the oldest of six children. Her father passed at a young age, Minnie helped her mother look after her siblings (ages 13 to newborn) to ensure the family stayed together. She married Earle Headlee May 9, 1942. They moved to Springfield, Oregon where they raised their sons Joseph and Wayne. Minnie’s love language was feeding her family - what an amazing cook she was! Once her sons were older, Minnie went to Beauty College to be a hairdresser. She enjoyed painting & gardening. Minnie was blessed with three grandchildren, four great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Minnie was preceded in death by her parents, Earle, son Joseph, siblings and her later-in-life companion William Rach. A private family service was held April 26, where Minnie was placed in the lower mausoleum at Springfield Memorial Gardens. If desired, donations can be made to Bristol Hospice - Eugene.
