Mrs. Thomas sews, crochets and quilts as hobbies, but her doll- making got out of hand. "It's a full- time job these day even if it did start as a hobby," she said. Mrs. Thomas added that she is thrilled and honored at being select- ed as queen of the 1989 Senior Court. Mrs. Starnes, a Tennessee native, moved here in 1918. She commented that her husband, Clay, is from Ten- nessee, too, but they didn't meet un- til her brothers brought him home for a visit - in the West Valley. "It seems kind of funny," Mrs. Starnes said. "We didn't live far apart in Tennessee, then several years later and several thousand miles from where we started, we met." The Starnes have lived in Yamhill County for the last 60 years, 40 of them running a dairy and farming. They have two daughters, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Mrs. Starnes said that what spare time she has is spent in gardening, crocheting and knitting. She and her husband "visit the girls in Scio and Lyons quite often."
