It is with great sadness that we share that Mary Knowles died unexpectedly this July. Mary has been a beloved and valuable member of our firm and our Estate Planning Group since 1977, first as a legal assistant and then as a paralegal since 1991.

Mary will be missed greatly by her colleagues, friends, and clients.
Mary has 40 years of experience in the firm’s Estate Planning Practice Group. She assists with all aspects of estate planning including document preparation and asset transfer, estate and trust administration, preparation of gift tax returns, and federal and Oregon estate tax returns.

Mary joined Tonkon Torp in 1977 as part of Mt. Hood Community College’s cooperative work experience requirement in the Legal Secretary program. She advanced to a paralegal shortly after starting at the firm as a legal secretary.
