SUBMITTED PHOTO - Ada Lenora RacetteAda Lenora Racette, 95, of Aurora, Oregon passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 17, 2020 with her family by her side. Ada was born on January 29,1925 in Portland, Oregon.

Her family travelled across the Oregon Trail and eventually settled in the Willamette Valley. In November 1943 she married the love of her life, the late Ralph Racette. Together they built a life together on their farm in Aurora, Oregon, where they raised their family.

Ada was an exceptional wife and mother, who cared deeply for her family and neighbors. Her adventurous spirit and love for travel took her across the US, but most importantly to her favorite camping spots across Oregon, which she liked to call boondocking.

Ada took great pride in her crocheting and made many afghans for family and friends over the years. She enjoyed tending to her garden and you could always find a sweet treat when visiting her home.

Ada is survived by her children, grandchildren, and great- grandchildren. Her goodness, wisdom and legacy of love will remain alive through all who knew her.

Memorial contributions can be made in Ada's name to the Portland Grotto.
