Anita home schooled all of her children and was also a large part of the community and local food bank where the boys loved to help. Anita was a great knitter and crocheter and enjoyed baking and cooking. The boys enjoyed building and crafting along with archery and outdoor and hunting activities.
They will be so greatly missed all our hearts are broken.
As a group coordinator for Highway safety on our FB page; Friends of Highway 97, Oregon, we have been very concerned about the changes that were made on this stretch of road! If there is any comfort, know there is a large growing group that is going to work very hard for this to never happen again! Sending mountains of comfort and blessings. I can be reached on group page. So sorry
My heart is breaking for your family! Please know the community of LaPine is here for your family. In December my 8 year old son was in a horrible wreck, that killed his father! I just want you to know, your not alone and there is support very close by! We are praying for your family!!
To the Bemrose family: my heart hurts bad for you. I'm from Bend and don't know you but this hits home for me. I pray that Jesus gives you strength, comfort, and healing during this tragic accident. My thoughts and prayers go out to your entire family. Lord I pray you give this family peace, comfort and strength to move forward each day and think of all the good memories this family enjoyed together, in Jesus name we pray. Amen
It has been years since I have seen Anita. Regardless, hearing this news has caused me a sense of deep sadness and empathy for her family. My heart goes out to all of you and I am holding you in prayer before the throne of Our Great Heavenly Father, God of all comfort. Jesus is the One who has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. May you know His powerful presence at this time of overwhelming sorrow.
ODOT says the 97 and Bear Road intersection will be repaved, restriped and be given rumble strips on both approaches to the intersection. They will also install four signs - two on both sides of the road heading north and south toward the intersection warning of cross traffic. They are scheduled to do this work in the 2018-19 fiscal year.
I'm so saddened by this story. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I couldn't imagine losing one person close to me let alone 4.. I hope they find peace and keep in mind that Jesus needed some amazing angels by his side because he just gained 4 very special one.
I'm so thankful that I was chosen to spend Anita's last morning chatting with her while our children were completing their testing. Like so many times over the last few years, we had a lot of time, so we talked about our families, and shared a lot of stories about our kids. She spoke of her children with such love and admiration. When the testing was done for the day, Wyatt, Ned, and Elliot stood by very politely while we wrapped up our conversation. If I had known that this was the last time we'd get to chat, there is nothing I would have changed about it.
So very sorry for the family's losses. This is so heartbreaking. I will be making a donation Friday. My heart and so so many prayers going out to this family :'(
