Administrator Married 2
Hobbies:  Reading, walking, and having time at home.

I went to the U of W and married Bob Rice in 1961.  Elaine and Steve Knapp were our neighbors in a Seattle apartment complex, and we had wonderful times.  Our daughter, Noelle, was born in 1965 while we were living there.  My parents also decided to move to Bellevue.

Bob and I moved to Bellingham where he took over the family insurance business.  We adopted a son, Brock, in 1968.  We met him when he was 3 hours old.  As the saying goes, "he didn't grow under my heart, but in it".  Bellingham was a wonderful town to raise our children.  Bob and I were amicably divorced in 1980.  When Noelle went to WSU, Brock and I moved to Seattle to be close to family.

After being a stay at home mom for years, I ventured into the workplace.  Frank Miller became my significant other for 12 years.  He introduced to to Howard Chermak, a friend who owned a remodeling business, and wanted someone to help him grow the business.  I found my niche when Howard invited me to join him.  At that time, there were six employees, today it is an award winning company with forty employees.  Frank passed away 14 years ago of pancreatic cancer.  Before he left, Frank told Howard that it would be fine if he married me.  We have been married for 12 years and feel blessed to be partners in life as well as partners in business.  

Noelle is a Social Worker in private practice in our hometown.
Brock is a helicopter pilot living in Montana.
Howard's daughter, Dana, is in the business with us.
My mother, Polly, is still with us at 91.

I am looking forward to seeing you all and catching up on your lives.

Retired - Purchasing Agent for the US Forest Service Married 2
Spouse:  Glenn
Children:  1 Son and 1 Daughter
Grandchildren:  1 Grandson and 2 Granddaughters

In 1960 I married the boy next door (Glenn McDonald ’57). We spent our first summer on a U.S. Forest Service fire lookout on the WW District. I received two PHT (putting hubby through) degrees from WSU. As we moved around the West with Glenn’s F.S. career, I attended various colleges, but never received an official degree.
 
I have worn many hats over the last 50 years. All have provided many challenges during the journey. Thirty-five years ago I became a certified “water rat”. My career as a water safety instructor has provided personal growth and stretched my limits. I have been fortunate to teach all aspects of aquatic activities in a variety of aquatic facilities, streams, and lake in all the communities we have lived.
 
I have taught all ages; babies, college level, senior citizens, and adapted aquatics. What a variety of personalities, courage, and extreme fear I have encountered. I discovered I was especially suited to young swimmers, age 3, 4, 5. “My” little tadpoles always amaze me as to what they can learn and the trust they give me. I continue to have a lot of success; the kids love “Mrs. Mac”. Stories have returned to me about potential drownings averted because of their training. How rewarding is that!
 
Our recreation always seems to involve water. We have been on numerous whitewater trips on some amazing rivers in our acquired fleet of canoes, kayaks, inflatables and rafts. Again, we have been fortunate to have experienced some amazing adventures and developed diverse close friendships.
 
We retired from regular jobs to Wallowa County, OR a few years ago and have been building a home with a spectacular view. Retirement has us busier than ever with our family, friends, all our previous activities and now some new ones thrown into the mix.

Stephanie Eubanks McDougal

 

Oct. 28, 1941 —  Aug. 29, 2016

Stephanie Eubanks McDougal, 74, took her final bow on Aug. 29, 2016, in Portland. She arrived on this Earth destined to play the cello, and made her original debut on Oct. 28, 1941, as the first of four daughters born to Richard Winston and Anne Casler Eubanks in Walla Walla. She was named for her maternal grandfather, Stephen Casler. Her parents felt that Stephanie was too much of a burden for their new, tiny baby, so she was forever known thereafter as “Stevie.”

At the age of three or four, she was able to identify the cello upon hearing a recording of Pablo Casals playing Saint-Saens’ “Le Cygne” (The Swan), and knew then that she, too, would pursue that instrument as her life’s work--which she did.

 

Stevie attended Sharpstein Elementary, Garrison Junior High School, and graduated from Walla Walla High School in 1959. She was proud of the fact that she was part of the first 9th grade class that attended the new Garrison, and helped choose the school colors and the Troopers mascot name. Growing up, Stevie played in her school orchestras and in the Walla Walla Symphony, the oldest continuous U.S. orchestra west of the Mississippi.

Stevie received her bachelor of fine arts in music performance from Stephens College (Columbia, Mo.) in 1962. Stevie’s favorite cello professor at Stephens, Eula Simmons, described Stevie’s playing in a letter to her parents this way: “She is the most gifted student that I have had the pleasure of knowing in more than ten years at Stephens College. Besides a natural feeling for musical phrasing, Stevie has a lovely sound on her instrument which has charmed all of us.” For graduation, Stevie’s parents purchased a Thomas Dodd cello that was made in 1790 in England, which she played for the rest of her life. She went on to pursue advanced studies at the Indiana University School of Music (Bloomington, Ind.) and to study with Janos Starker.

In 1965, Stevie moved to Portland, where she auditioned for the Portland Symphony, which was then a part-time position. This orchestra became the Oregon Symphony and Stevie worked at various times over the years as a union representative for her fellow musicians. At some point, the Oregon Symphony was able to provide a full-time living to its members. Stevie played her cello in the Oregon Symphony for 38 years. In addition, she played in the West Coast Chamber Orchestra, and in retirement, she was delighted to play for the Newport (Oregon) Symphony. During her years in Oregon, Stevie taught dozens, if not hundreds, of cello students, both in her homes in Portland and Gleneden Beach, and at the Community Music Center in Portland for more than 30 years.

 

Stevie was married in 1967 to Ernest McDougal. They divorced in 1981. She was never without a dog and always adopted them from the Oregon Humane Society. Her last dog, Clio, was found abandoned on Highway 101. Stevie loved to travel (especially by cruise ship), was a voracious reader, and of course, was devoted to her music. She was a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (Walla Walla), Trinity Episcopal Church (Portland), and St. James Santiago Episcopal Church (Lincoln City), where she and her dear friend, violinist Kathy Follett, started a children’s orchestra, and where she played her cello every Sunday.

Stevie is survived by her three sisters, Christopher Eubanks of Honolulu, Meg Eubanks of Tacoma, and Kathryn Eubanks Zahl (Jerry) of Walla Walla. She also leaves two mutually loved nephews, Evan Bird (a fellow professional musician in Nashville, Tenn.), and Andrew Zahl (Walla Walla). She is also survived by a large group of friends and colleagues in both Portland and Gleneden Beach, whom she adored. Her infectious laugh will be missed by all who loved her.

The family held a private graveside service at Mountain View Cemetery in Walla Walla on Saturday, Sept. 10. A memorial celebration of life service will take place at St. James Santiago Episcopal Church, Lincoln City, on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016, at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Community Music Center or the Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, both in Portland; or to St. James Santiago Episcopal Church in Lincoln City, or to the donor’s charity of choice through Herring Groseclose Funeral Home, 315 W. Alder, Walla Walla WA 99362





After Wa-Hi I attended Stephens College and was in the first graduating class of the BFA program.  There I studied with Eula Simmons.  I then went to Indiana U. for graduate studies with Leopold Teraspulsky.  I attended the Aspen Music Festival the summers of 1963 &1964.  I joined the Oregon Symphony (then the Portland Symphony) in 1965 where I stayed until my retirement in 2003.  I also played in the Portland Opera Orchestra, was a founding member and officer of the board of the West Coast Chamber Orchestra and played various ballet and musical comedy shows until the Oregon Symphony went full time.

I began teaching cello at the Community Music Center in 1971 where I still teach to this day.

I retired from the Oregon Symphony in 2003 and immediately joined the Newport (OR) Symphony. I was elected as the orchestra representative to the board in 2005.  I relinquished that position 3 yrs. later.  YAY!!!

I have discovered cruising the last few years and have cruised the East Coast, Alaska and the Mediterranean.  Will be going to the Panama Canal in Jan.

I spend most of my time at the Oregon Coast with my dog, Clio, and one day a week in Portland to teach.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion.
