  • How do you sum up 10 decades of living? Medford native Sheena Brittingham, a 28-year-old interior designer residing in Portland, found a way to honor her great-grandmother on her 100th birthday by creating storyboards of her life.
    The photo time lines showcase Medford resident Catherine Coshow Hoover's centurylong journey from childhood to college, through marriage, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each board shows the U.S. presidents who served, the best-selling cars, fashions and a major news story of each decade.
    "The time I spent looking at her beautiful photographs and celebrating her amazing life was priceless," Brittingham said of her great-grandma. "I would be sitting on my computer at 1 a.m. with tears in my eyes at times, just so thankful for this amazing woman who had such a huge impact on all of our lives."
