In memory of
Barbara (Burtis) Peck
Peck, Barbara (Burtis) 105 Feb. 23, 1909 Oct. 08, 2014 Barbara was born in Decorah, Iowa, to Mary Lena (Stewart) Burtis and William Henry Burtis. She graduated from high school in the mid-1920s, and went on to attend Oregon State Agricultural College, now known as Oregon State University, earning a bachelor's degree in home econ- omics. During her senior year in college, she married Norton Lee Peck who preceded her in death. Barbara was a very determined woman who lived a life of service and dedication to others. She is perhaps best known for leading the effort to save the Pittock Mansion in 1964. She was actively involved in PTA at both the local and state level, led Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts and volunteered for almost 60 years with the Red Cross. Barbara also helped found what is now known as the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District. She and her husband pledged much support to OSU, where scholarships in engineering and health and human services are offered in their names. In the late 1980s, Barbara and Norton founded the Norton and Barbara Peck Family Foundation, which continues to carry on their philanthropic works. Surviving relatives include her children, Don Peck, Roger Peck and Susan Hall; and many nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. A service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014, at Bethel Congregational United Church of Christ in Beaverton. A private inurnment will be in Skyline Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Please visit her memorial at: skylinememorialgardens.com . In lieu of flowers, friends may contribute to the Norton and Barbara Peck Family Foundation or Habitat for Humanity through Bethel Congregational Church of Christ.
