Bev Herrin (d. 2018) was a fierce and dedicated advocate for people with developmental disabilities. She was a champion in many of Oregon’s systems change initiatives that shifted services from institutions to the community. She helped design and manage the residential and employment services and government policies that make Oregon a precedent setting state so that people who experience even the most severe disabilities can live and work in the community. Outside of work Bev led an active life where she engaged in skydiving, climbing Mt Hood, rock climbing at Smith Rocks, Yosemite and Squamish Chief in British Columbia. She was a music fan and traveled from Maine to California, Seattle to Miami plus music based cruises in the Caribbean and the Mexican Riviera. As we remember Bev, we honor a full life of service, fun, and family.
