"Her bright smile was contagious, and her happiness and zest for life were unmatched."

Anne Elizabeth Castle, age 81, of Portland, OR, passed away comfortably surrounded by family and the loving caregiver, Michelle Mihaltan on July 29, 2018. She was born Anne Elizabeth Worden in Mahnomen, MN, and moved to Oregon shortly thereafter. She was the eldest of three girls and often cared for her younger siblings, Joan and Sophy. Even at a young age, Anne always took pride in nurturing others. Anne was a devout Catholic who led by example throughout her life. She attended St. Agatha's Catholic School and graduated from St. Marys Academy Roman Catholic High School in 1955.
Anne married her husband Jack V. Castle in 1956 and raised their three children as a doting homemaker in S.E. Portland.
She was a kind, compassionate, and nurturing woman who always put the needs of others before her own. Her most joyous moments were those where she was surrounded by family. As the matriarch, Anne taught those around her with considerable grace how to live, laugh, and love.
She undoubtedly touched the lives of all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. She will be profoundly missed, but her legacy will live on in all those she knew.
Anne is survived by her sister, Sophy Walter of Lincoln City, OR; her three children, Deborah Altenhofen of Kalama, WA, Patrick Castle of Portland, OR and Elizabeth Conradi of Las Vegas, NV; her adored grandchildren, Justin, Shelly, Molly, Katie, Matthew, Katherine, Matt, Josh, Jeff and Kaylee; and her precious great-grandchildren, Caitlin, Nicole, Reid, Aiden, Riley, Dakoda, Alexander, and Dorothy.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Joan Ferenbach of Portland, OR; and her beloved husband of 53 years, Jack Victor Castle.
There will be a Celebration of Anne's everlasting life on Tues., Aug. 7th at 10:30 a.m. at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Vancouver, WA. She will be laid to rest alongside her husband in Willamette National Cemetery in Portland.
