The Crest Family Mourns

The Crest family recently lost three people who made a big impact on our work lives who will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. While we’ve all been caught up in the craziness of the past two years, we’re again reminded that there are bigger priorities in life than the little problems we face each day and each of these three have left us with the example of focusing on the things that mattered most and living their lives to the fullest. Maria Guerrero spent 24 years working in production for the Packaging Division on the second shift. She brought a kind personality to work every day that was contagious to those around her. Her biggest pride in life was her 6 children and 21 grandchildren whom she showered with love and filled with her good cooking. Undoubtedly, this group will honor her life by living their lives to the fullest. Eugene Stilson spent 25 years working in production for the Packaging Division on the second shift. He was a soft spoken, kindly man who enjoyed discussing topics that he was passionate about…and Eugene was a man involved in many passions. He was a pastor, had Masters Degrees in Counseling as well as New Testament Studies, taught and was the academic dean at Oregon Bible College, built his own house, played viola and piano and was a vocal soloist. He was the father of 3 children and had 5 grandchil- dren and a great granddaughter. There is no doubt Eugene lived his life to the fullest. Joan Wubbena was the first nurse that worked at Crest for our in-house nurse program. She was known simply as “Nurse Joan” by everyone at Crest. She turned out to be just what the doctor ordered for starting our program as she was personable, caring, outgo- ing and just a little bit sassy. Prior to her work as a registered nurse, Joan worked as a semi-truck driver and ran a food van catering at auctions and fairs. Her family included 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. Joan was a free spirit who would back away from no situation and left an impression on all she came in contact with. We are thankful for having crossed paths with each of these people and hope that a little bit of each one lives with us ongoing. May they rest in peace. Welcome Andrea Svela!
