Carol Barnum, 77, of The Dalles, Oregon passed away suddenly with family by her side on February 7th, 2019. She was born to the late Robert and Esther Pusey of Glenns Ferry, Idaho as the eldest of six children. Her immediate survivors include three siblings, her three children, and four grandchildren.

As a young adult, she earned a bachelor's degree and lived on both coasts of the United States doing accounting work. Carol raised three children in Idaho before moving to Grass Valley, Oregon in 1997 with her loving husband. Life in Oregon was like paradise discovered, she reveled in her new life. In 2002, after her husband lost his battle with cancer, she left their beloved ranch and moved to The Dalles, Oregon. In The Dalles she discovered a wonderful home and community.

Carol struggled with dark times in her life, both physically and emotionally, including her own cancer. In spite of this, her deep and abiding faith in God caused her to seek joy in all that had been given to her and allowed her to share kindness, gentleness and wisdom with others.

Throughout her life, Carol took great joy in gardening and creating an oasis of beautiful plants around her home. She was happiest when she was out digging in the dirt and tending to her garden. She loved sharing her knowledge of plants and helping to create landscape designs for family and friends, often spending the time and effort to include watercolor paintings of her visions.

She was an avid learner, participating in a variety of community groups—playing cards, learning about the brain, doing yoga, leading bible study--in addition to volunteering as book keeper for Habitat until her death.

She took great pride in being a grandmother. “Grammy” or “Jasper Grammy”, as she was known, was a constant encourager and supporter of her grandkids. She made a special effort to connect and have a unique relationship with each of them.

She will be dearly missed.

A memorial service will be held on March 20, 2019 at 11:00am at Gateway Church 1111 Dry Hollow Road, The Dalles, Oregon 97058. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to The Dalles Habitat.

Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson's Tribute Center • Celilo Chapel 204 E. 4th Street, The Dalles, Oregon 97058. Visit www.AndersonsTributeCenter.com to leave a note of condolence for the family.

I'm Ed Barnum from Bend, Oregon. Dick Barnum was my first cousin and I fortunately got to know Carol well during their marriage. Unfortunately my wife Jo Ann and I had not visited Carol in The Dalles for too many years. However, we did visit her and enjoyed walking thru her garden several years after she moved to The Dalles. We exchanged Christmas cards. My cousin Jill Lieuallen just notified me of Carol's passing. We are very Sad and wish we had know of her funeral. We understand, unfortunately we only know the family by names. Yes, your mother was Very Strong spiritually and enjoyed sharing that with husband Dick. We too love our garden and bird watching and shared that love with Carol . It has been more than ten years since she visited us. We extend our Love, Thoughts and Prayers to comfort you in your Loss!
