SISTERS RECALL MEETING ELVIS
As the saying goes, some memories are fleeting and fade away in days, months or years. Then there's the kind where you meet Elvis Presley.
By  Drew Vattiat
As the saying goes, some memories are fleeting and fade away in days, months or years. Then there's the
kind where you meet Elvis Presley.

In a previous story, the paper posted a story about two photos of Elvis found in their photo negative archives,
down in the basement of The Oregonian building. One picture included a few children meeting "The King of
Rock 'n' Roll" himself.

It turns out those children are sisters who grew up in Portland and vividly remember details of Presley's 1957
visit to the city. After seeing the story, they got in touch and we ended up getting together for an updated
photo shoot with a likeness of Elvis, and to hear a few of their memories to last a lifetime.

With a tip from the station master on where he would be arriving, 17-year old Marcella Marx (now Marcella
Christoff), who worked for Gray Line, brought sisters Donna Lowe, 14, Patty Marx, 12, and Dorothy Pittman, 3,
to Union Station with an autograph book and Mickey Mouse Club guitar.

After Presley got off the train, he spotted and spent a few minutes with the siblings. It took only two words --
'Hiya babe' -- and Elvis' big blue eyes to put Donna in "seventh heaven." Patty remembers him being so kind to
take the time and visit. Dorothy was a bit too young to remember details, but Elvis paid special attention to her
and checked out the guitar that she still has today.

Years later, they're all still Elvis fans. Marcella, who was the lucky one out of the four to attend the concert with
a friend, says of Presley, "Everybody talks about the Beatles, but it was Elvis who changed the landscape of music from the crooner to rock and roll. He was a
breath of fresh air."


For the record, Marcella said the concert was wonderful and she was screaming and yelling as Presley sang his songs and wiggled around on stage.

Check out the updated gallery above with the updated photo and some Oregonian images that were lost in our archives over the years. The sisters kindly
provided copies of several photos.
