SEASIDE - Sunset Parks and Recreation officially received $104,801 Wednesday from longtime resident Jean Kemp's estate.

"She's looking down and I know she's happy," said Kathy Eilertsen, an executor of the estate.

Kemp arranged to donate her estate to the district several years ago. She was part of the "Sunset Ladies" naked calendar to raise money for the pool.

"She was one heck of a babe," Executive Director Mary Blake said.

The Sunset Parks' Our Foundation will decide how to spend and invest the money.

Parks staff are also mourning the loss of Rosemary Gallagher, who was hit by a car in Cannon Beach Oct. 30.

"Rosemary just exhibited kindness and happiness every day," Blake said. "She brought a sense of joy and respect and professionalism to our facility."
