Patricia Luther 1936-2009

Shari's mom passed away on Tuesday night. She never woke up after the stroke.

Her name was Patricia Lucille Luther and she was born in North Platte, Nebraska on July 16, 1936. She was loved by a lot of people and she will be buried at the Oregon farm where Shari was born. Patty was a beatnick in the 1950s and she joined the commune in Oregon in 1959 and had five children including Shari. When the commune ended she was one of the women who stayed and married a man who was taking care of three other women who had kids at the commune. She had a lot to do with the commune becoming a Christian church. I never really got to meet her or know her but with all the people who are here right now I can tell she was loved. Her funeral will be in Oregon next Saturday (the 16th).


  1. My condolences to Shari and her family. Her mom sounds like she was an interesting and kind woman. It's nice that she gets to be buried on the farm that was important to her. Oregon's a nice place. :-)

  2. Megan,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you,

  3. My family and I (Dan, Helen & Ruby) wish to express our deepest sympathies at your loss, and pray that the Grace and Peace of the Living God be with you all at this time.

    Regards, Christ's Love and our Condolences,

    Dan, Helen & Ruby

  4. So sorry for your family's loss. Thoughts and prayers are forthcoming.


  5. My condoleances to you and Shari and your family.. I hope Shari's mom gets to feel all the love and prayers that all offer, thousand times over.

  6. God be with Shari in this her hardest time. God help her to get through this with His Love. God give Steve and the rest of her family to have the understanding to protect and comfort her.

    Personally, I hope all of you will weather this storm.
