Moving tribute to Jaime


December 12, 2018

In a very moving tribute to “Glenwood kid” Jaime Louise Throop Espinoza, her family was invited to serve as Grand Marshals for the annual Candy Cane Lane Parade in Goldendale last Saturday evening in her honor. Jaime was beloved both here in her hometown of Glenwood and her adopted hometown of Goldendale and this was such a moving, lovely way to honor her memory. Her sister Jessica said it meant a lot to the Throop family to hear from her friends and the community about how much Jaime meant to them all. Jaime was with them all in spirt on that special evening.

Our community is saddened to hear of the passing of Bobbie Burns. Bobbie lived in Glenwood most of her life, until moving to a care center in Hood River due to health concerns in recent years. She was involved in many community activities and groups over the decades and was a member of the Glenwood Women’s Club. Mostly, Bobbie’s life revolved around her beloved husband Tom and all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Our deepest condolences go to the Burns family at this sad time.
