was and will continue to be
an inspiration to those who

a college education while
raising five young children
to relentlessly hiking the
Eagle Cap Wilderness
area well into her eight-
ies, Grandma George
knew what she wanted for
herself and her family and
was willing to do what
it took to get there. Our
lives are better because of
her. Let us not mourn her
death, but instead celebrate
her life, because it was a
remarkable one.

5, 1927 to Zahnie and Dol-
lie Crockett in Gold Beach,
Ore.
She passed away peace-
fully at home with her

continued her education at
Eastern Oregon College of

she married Wilbur Hugh
Colton in Baker, Ore. They
made their home on the
Colton family ranch in the
upper Keating Valley. Five
children were born, Linda,
Cinda, Tom, Teri, and
Traci. Hugh passed away
in 1961. Eva then went
back to school and with a
bookkeeping degree went
to work for Mitchell and
Guyer accounting in Baker,
and while there passed her
CPA exams.
She met George O.
Hiatt while doing an audit
for the city of Baker and
they were wed on June 14,
1964. After George retired
as city manager and the
death of her father, they
moved to Pistol River, Ore.
to help her mother run the
Crockett family ranch.
She became partners in the
CPA firm of Scruggs, Hiatt
and Musser in Brookings,
Ore. While there, she was
on the board of directors of
numerous banks and civic
organizations. After retire-
ment from her firm, they
returned to Baker County
in 1994 and resided in the
lower Keating Valley for
the next twenty years.
Eva was active in Sorop-
timist Club, Daughters of
the American Revolution,
playing pinochle at Keat-
ing school, line dancing at
the Senior Center, travel-
ing, reading and living life
to the fullest!
