Mitzy Pemberton Obituary

Mitzy L. Pemberton joined her creator on Wednesday January 25th, 2023.  Mitzy’s journey began May 18th, 1938, in LA County California to Willard (Rudy) Baysinger and Eleanor M Zuck. Later her family relocated to Southern Oregon where she attended grade school and high school in Grants Pass and Jacksonville. She married James Womack in December of 1957. They had three girls. She was a talented gardener, cook and lover of animals, horses and dogs being her favorite. She used these talents in 4H leadership in the Jackson County area with her good friend Lorna Erskine teaching young kids.  

She moved to Montana in the spring of 1979 where she got a job at the Nite Owl Restaurant. Soon she was running her own restaurants, The Grinder, Canyon and the Columbia Bar Restaurant. She will be best remembered by her Mexican food. 

In November 1992, she married John Pemberton. They enjoyed a life together camping, hunting and fishing with children including memorable tailgate Thanksgiving dinners at hunting camp.
