Longtime Washougal couple will be crowned ‘Camas Days Royalty’
Lea and Irma Hornbeck have a long history of volunteer work
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Lea and Irma Hornbeck have been named to the Camas Days Senior Royalty Court. Based on all of the volunteer work they have been involved in throughout their lives, they deserve it.
Lea, born in Portland and raised in Buffalo, N.Y., shipped out to fight in World War II. He then came back to Portland to work at the Pendleton Woolen Mills before he moved to Washougal in the 50s. He continued to work at Pendleton in Washougal for 35 years. And yet he always found time to volunteer in big and small ways.
"We like to keep busy," Irma, his wife, explained with a laugh.
