My name is Pat Edwards and this is my personal website.
“But, I thought I was going to find a site about Lorane, Oregon!” you say.
You’ll find a lot of Lorane on these pages. It has been our family’s home since 1966, and was my grandparents’ home in the early 1940s when I was a little mite. They had a ranch located on Powell Road, about 8 miles northwest of Lorane, but they were active in the Lorane community.
With the help of two very special friends, Nancy O’Hearn and Marna Hing, I researched the history of the Lorane area in the late 1980s and we published a book on that history. I revised the book again in 2006. I’ve also written two Lorane newsletters over the years and am currently the Lorane correspondent, writing a newspaper column that appears weekly in both the Fern Ridge Review in Veneta and the Creswell Chronicle.
All of these things will be included here eventually. I will be adding portions at a time and will post my weekly columns here to share with each of you.
In addition, I am including the books, essays and stories that I’ve written over the years on other subjects — my family, my childhood, my experiences, my inner-most thoughts and beliefs.
So, no… it’s not just about Lorane, but at the same time, it does include a lot about the community because “All Things Lorane” live within my heart.
