Sharrel Yvonne Mooers, 79, of Cathlamet, died July 26, 2001 in Longview. She was born July 13, 1942 to Gerald and Nadine (Bowman) Thompson in Weiser, Idaho.
She was raised in Ontario, Oregon and graduated from Ontario High School in 1960. In 1964 she graduated from Eastern Oregon State University and went back for her Masters degree.
