Sisters couple dies in snow

A Sisters couple was found dead after apparently trying to walk in to a residence in Crossroads down a driveway heavily blanketed in snow.

Sheriff's deputies responded on Saturday, February 8, to a request for a welfare check on Henry Constable, 83, and Brooke Constable, 69, who had last been seen on February 7. A deputy responded to an address on Crossroads Loop known to be associated with the Constables.

"On arrival to the Crossroads Loop location the deputy located the couple's car some distance from the Crossroads Loop address," the sheriff's office reports. "The deputy with the assistance of the Sisters Fire Department, located the male, Henry Constable, buried under snow and a short distance from the residence. The female, Brooke Constable, was located nearby also covered by snow which had fallen the previous night and had continued to accumulate during the day prior to the couple's discovery. The couple had apparently been walking from the road on an unplowed driveway to the residence through heavy snow."

The sheriff's office emphasized that there is no suspicion of foul play.

"...Rather it was potentially a result of exposure to the extreme weather conditions, overexertion in snow conditions, a medical emergency or a combination of the above factors."

In Bend, Tim Lillebo died while shoveling snow.

Lillebo, wildlands advocate with Oregon Wild and a longtime forest activist in the Sisters Country, collapsed and was found by his wife some 30 minutes after going outside. Lifesaving efforts were attempted by medical personnel but were unsuccessful.
