Shoshanna Porter, 62, died July 22, 2013 of breast cancer.
She retired from Clark College as Dept. Chair of Electronic Technology. After retiring, she followed her life-long dream of becoming a certified chaplain and was employed by Providence ElderPlace.
Staff and friends remember her especially
for her gentle presence and giving nature.
Gardening, reading, and going to the beach were some of the passions that fed her life that she then so generously shared with friends and ElderPlace residents and staff.
Shoshanna is survived by her wife, Anke Matoga; her mother, Doris Porter; and sister, Kathleen Porter.
She was preceded in death by her father, Alan Porter.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
