Obituary for Janie M. McCallum

JANIE M. MCCALLUM, 94, OTIS 10-15-1926 – 10-22-2020

Janie Maxine McCallum, 94, of Otis, passed away on October 22, 2020, at Avamere Rehabilitation in Newport, Oregon from age related natural causes. Janie was born in Nehalem, Oregon on October 15, 1926, to Clarence H. Graves, Sr. and Clara M. Graves. She had four sisters and one brother. She married Charles W. Hughes and together they had three children, Linda, Kenneth and Kristy. Charles died in 1958. On October 8, 1960, Janie married Hobart “Hobie” McCallum. This year was their 60th anniversary. They had one child, Wendy.

Janie was employed as a waitress at Lil Sambo’s restaurant in Oceanlake, now Lincoln City, for 24+ years. She then worked at Rexall Drug Store and Folkestad’s Pharmacy, before finally retiring. While working full time, Janie found time to drive her kids to Boy Scout, Girl Scout and Blue Bird meetings, as well as numerous school functions and sporting events. She once commented that she was always happy when each of the kids would get their driver’s license so she could retire as the family taxi. Through the years, Janie enjoyed her children’s friends that came and went (and there were many). She had a bass amp in the living room and quite often had a band practicing in the basement. She always had coffee on and tried to feed everyone who stopped by. They all knew they were always welcome. And they were. Janie was a loyal Trailblazer fan, she enjoyed fishing in the drift boat with Hobie, camping and hunting with family and friends in North Eastern Oregon, sitting by a campfire, and chocolate ice cream (or pretty much anything chocolate). She also loved the color red.

Janie is survived by her husband Hobart E. “Hobie” McCallum, four children, Linda Hughes Rouske of Lincoln City, Kenny (Sherri) Hughes of Aberdeen, WA., Kristy (Bud) Daley of Independence, Wendy (Todd) Whitlow of Dallas, 6 grandchildren, Zoe, Travis, Rhianna, Benjamin, Rebecca and Tyler, and 13 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents Clarence and Clara Graves, stepfather Patrick O’Brien, first husband Charles Hughes, four sisters Leah Sullivan, Audrey Norberg, Lois Barnett, Betty Archibald and her brother Clarence Graves, Jr.

The family would like to thank Samaritan Evergreen Hospice and Avamere Rehabilitation of Newport for providing comfortable care during Janie’s last days. We would also like to give a special shout out to Dr. LaFaunce for being such a wonderful and caring doctor, and of course, thank you to the caregivers who assisted Janie with home care services.

No service is planned at this time. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Samaritan Evergreen Hospice, 749 SW 11th Street, Newport, Oregon 97365 or the Brian Grant Foundation, 650 NE Holladay St., Suite 1600, Portland, OR 97232. Bollman Funeral Home in Dallas, Oregon is caring for the family. To leave an online condolence or share a memory with the family go to

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Janie was a very special person as anyone who had the privilege to have known her would say is an understatement. Janie and Hobie were two people who you could say you were blessed to know. I met them in 1977 when I began work at UPS. I had very many pleasant chats, almost daily, with Janie as she signed for packages at both Rexall Drug and Folkestad’s Pharmacy. Because I also delivered to their home on N orth Bank Rd. in Otis, I was lucky enough to get to meet Hobie even though I knew him before from all the stories I had heard from Janie! It seems impossible to think my last conversation with you guys was in 2004 when I retired, but know I have thought of you guys several times since moving to central Oregon (Sunriver). Again Hobie, sorry for your loss but know as I do Janie is in a wonderful place and we will meet again. Mike

I met Hobie and then Janie while working at Salmon R Hatchery years ago. I was immediately taken by their kindness, friendliness and welcoming demeanor. They both showed me the best qualities of true Oregonians and inspired me through their gracious everyday living. I consider myself a better person for having met them. They were also very courageous and helpful hiring me to paint their house when I was just starting my business! I always loved it when I chanced upon them down at Knight Park watching the estuary and it was always special to spend a while talking to these locally legendary folks—it made the world feel right being around them! Bless all of you as you go through this transitional time and Godspeed Janie— I know there are many beautiful wonders waiting for you 🤗
