State Archives Dedicates Room to Long-Time Volunteer
August 1, 2012
SALEM – The second floor volunteer room in the State Archives building located in Salem is now known as the Daraleen Wade room. Wade started volunteering at the State Archives in 1992, and contributed thousands of hours during nearly 20 years of volunteer service. Even after her health prevented her from traveling to the Archives building, she worked from her home on countless projects. Daraleen passed away in April after a long illness.
“It is truly an honor to dedicate such a wonderful space to Daraleen and her remarkable contributions,” said Secretary of State Kate Brown. “Her knowledge, warmth and eager attitude will be missed and her work treasured for years to come.”
Not only did Daraleen help take care of our past, she helped preserve our future by mentoring and supporting countless student interns. Many maintained contact with Daraleen after moving on in their professional careers.
Darleen enjoyed life in Keizer and is survived by her children Barbara Rowe, Patty Dela and David Wade; five grandchildren and her Archives family. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
