ROSALIE BEACHMAN was born to Armas and Alice (Clark) Jakku on April 23, 1926 in Hood River OR. In 1930 her mother passed away suddenly. Armas, along with help from relatives and others continued to raise Rosalie and her older brother, Stuart, until Armas married Evi Annala several years later.

Rosalie spent her earliest years between Odell where Alice’s parents (Grandpa & Grandma Clark) lived and the orchard on Dethman Ridge Rd, that Armas had established, and where she lived until she left home for college. She played often with cousin Patsy and brother Stuart, as well as numerous Clarks, Benefiels, and Annala’s as they trekked between the orchard and Odell.

In 1944 she graduated from Odell High School. WWII had begun by this time and her future husband, Bill Beachman, was serving (in the south Pacific). After Rosalie enrolled at the University of Oregon word came that her brother, Stuart, had been killed while also serving in Europe.

In 1947 Rosalie and Bill married and made their first home in Corvallis, OR as Bill finished his studies at OSU that had been interrupted by the War. They followed with a move to Eugene where Bill pursued a pre-law degree and Rosalie continued her studies at U of O.

In 1950 Rosalie and Bill returned to HR, settling into the John Jakku house/orchard on Reed Road in Oak Grove. Children, Gary and Karen, were born while the family lived in Oak Grove, moving in the mid 1950s to the Armas Jakku house/orchard on Dethman Ridge. (Rosalie’s childhood home.) She spent most of her adult life on the orchard there.

Rosalie was a homemaker, assisted on the orchard and an active community volunteer at H.R Memorial Hospital, American Red Cross, HR County Museum and the Odell Methodist Church. She was a member of Delta Gamma sorority, PEO Sisterhood, Columbia Gorge Regional Arts Association and the Odell Methodist Church.

After Bill’s passing in 2008, Rosalie married Ted Perry in 2013. After Ted’s passing in 2017, she moved to Parkhurst Place Assisted Living in HR. Rosalie spent the last three years of her life under the wonderful care of Tim, Karen, Terry and the caring staff at Parkhurst. She loved living there and it was the right place for her at that time of her life, although she pined for “home.” Much appreciation and thanks goes to Parkhurst Place. Also, a special note of thanks to her long time primary care physician, Dr. Janet Sjoblom and the doctors, nurses and staff at HR Memorial Hospital.
Rosalie is survived by her son, Gary Beachman (Marcia), daughter Karen Nicola, granddaughter, Kathryn A. Ryan (Kyle) and Kiira L. Nicola along with many Clark, Benefiel, and Annala cousins living locally and throughout the U.S.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Hood River Providence Memorial Hospital Foundation, Hospice of the Gorge, or American Red Cross.

Rosalie was the first person I met when Rick and I moved to Hood River back in ‘84. She rented her beautiful house on Dethman Ridge to us. She had a beautiful garden and we would chat about “life” for a few minutes when she would come over to work in it. What a sweet, lovely lady. You will be missed Rosalie! May God Bless!

Hello, my name is Karli and I was Rosalie’s caregiver at Parkhurst senior living. I started working at Parkhurst in March, and unfortunately only had the blessing of knowing Rosalie for a few short months. Over my time of being there we got to know each other very well and she was a spitfire from the get go. She was the most caring and funny person I’ve met with so much integrity and humor. I know as a caregiver we shouldn’t have favorites or get too attached, but she held a special place in my heart and I’ll always cherish the time spent with her.. I sincerely apologize for the families loss and I’m sending all my love and prayers to the ones hurting through her passing. I just want the family to know how much she loved and talked about all of you. She’ll be dearly missed
