Description

Born in Eugene, Oregon, Euphama Hayes and her family moved to Portland at the beginning of World War II so her father could work. She attended Grant High School and graduated in June of 1948. Initially, she planned to attend Oregon State, but the fees were steep, so her family decided she could attend the then very new Lewis & Clark College. So, she took the entrance exam, passed, and in September of 1948, she started her career at Lewis & Clark College. At the time, no one lived on campus, so she commuted from home every day. She pledged Alpha Gamma sorority her freshman year and her social life was centered around that. She became very close with these girls and they still try to get together every year to this day. During her sophomore year Euphama met her future husband, Bill Partlow (class of 1951), who was a JV football player and discharged veteran. She did not graduate because she wanted to get married and get some real work experience. She became a bank teller and worked her way all the way up to regional manager, the first woman to hold that position. Later, she became very politically involved with the League of Women Voters. In 1996, she became an ordained minister in the Unity faith and is currently the minister of a church in Gresham. She has four children, ten grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
