Rebecca Maldon Horton ’53

Rebecca Maldon Horton ’53, November 15, 2002, at the Lincoln City Rehabilitation Center. Molly attended Reed for a short time, receiving a BS from Oregon College of Education (now Western Oregon University) in Monmouth. After teaching for a year in Portland public schools, she was recruited to teach at Riverdale Grade School in southwest Portland, a position she enjoyed for many years. Horton was the first sales associate for Salishan Properties and eventually moved to Gleneden Beach, teaching in Lincoln City before retiring from education. In retirement, she had a full life visiting with friends, walking the beach, reading, gardening, and caring for her dogs. Molly was said to have played a memorable part in the Portland theatre and music scene in the ’30s, performing in productions at the Civic and Taylor Street theatres and on the radio.
