Oma O. Logue, 98, passed away January 5, 2014. She was born in Hoquiam, Washington on September 27, 1915, to Anna and Ernest Olson. Oma grew up in Quinault, Washington and graduated from Hoquiam High School in 1933. Soon after she met and married Neil Logue and they were married for 69 years until his death in 2002.
Oma and Neil settled in Hoquiam, where they raised their children and Neil worked and later was part owner of Allman Hubble Tugboat Co. Oma worked at O’Conners Clothing store as a buyer.
After retirement they built their home in Central Park, where they were active members of the Grays Harbor Country Club. In retirement, Oma loved to golf, travel with Neil and spend time at their condo in Hawaii.
While her family was her first love, a close second was Oma’s love of her garden where she could grow anything. While the vegetables and strawberries were popular, she was most known for her beautiful dahlia plants that colored her yard in the summer.
Oma is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Kay and Ron Heinke; sister, May Olson Torres; grandchildren, Kathryn Breda (Michael), Kristin Young, Jolene Logue and Jamie Logue (Jennifer); great-grandchildren, Taylor Sepolen, Daniel Young, Isabella Breda, Griffin Young and Jamie Logue IV. She was preceded in death by son, James “Jim” Logue; and sister, Opal Olson Porter.
