Clara Fambro is Now Safe and Happy
By Ron Lee
Portland, OR – Having been in the care of Guardian Ann Yela of Yela Fiduciary Services and Roselane Adult Foster Care Home of Beaverton, Oregon for close to two years, then 90-year-old Clara Fambro was reportedly close to death. At least, that’s what Yela would have had everyone believe when she placed Clara on hospice. With Clara placed on hospice, the facility staff could refuse food and water if they felt Clara couldn’t “tolerate it.” Purportedly, that is exactly what they did.
On several occasions, Clara’s daughter, Dollie Fambro – usually accompanied by a friend to be her witness – says she would find her mother “fully reclined, not having been fed or given water.” When they’d ask why, they were told by the staff that it was because Clara couldn’t tolerate it. Dollie is reported to have yelled, “That is because you have to raise her up, so she doesn’t choke!”
According to Dollie, she would go to the house and spend hours making sure her mother was both hydrated and fed. Those hours turned into days, weeks and months of ensuring the facility where her mother was homed by her guardian, Ann Yela, didn’t kill her mom through their documented lack of care, or documented abuse.
As previously reported, Dollie retained attorney Robert Parker who petitioned the court to regain guardianship of her mother, and to strip Yela of being the conservator of her mother’s almost completely depleted estate. With the petition filed with the court and the US~Observer’s previous article circulating, the pressure mounted. It obviously became too much.
On August 24th, 2022 came the news that Robert Parker secured a deal with Ann Yela’s attorney that would return guardianship back to Dollie. The one requirement Yela wanted was for Dollie to sign away her ability to sue her.
One has to wonder, why would a guardian/conservator be worried about being sued if they were doing right by their wards?
Perhaps it was the fact that most of Clara Fambro’s sizeable estate had reportedly been sold-off, with property even having been purchased by Yela for a steal. It is reported that the amount of Clara’s estate devaluation far exceeded the cost it took to care for her for the time she was Yela’s ward. Maybe it was the sub-par care Yela kept Clara in, or the fact that she put Clara on hospice reportedly without any clinical end-of-life diagnosis.
Dollie reported that she begrudgingly agreed to Yela’s demand and signed the agreement. She did so to get her mother out of the Roselane facility where witnesses, and past employees have maintained they drug their clients into a stupor, so they are “easier to take care of.”
Roselane is the facility where I visited Clara in December of 2021, and is where Clara reported to this writer that she had been abused several times. It is a place that Ann Yela had refused to move Clara from after having been informed she was being abused by US~Observer Editor-in-Chief Edward Snook.
Luckily, Clara’s daughter never stopped fighting to get her mother back, and out of the hands of those who were reportedly abusing her.
On September 8, 2022, the court ruled that Dollie Fambro was to be her mother’s guardian.
In late September, Clara was transported from an immediate care facility, in which she was provided life-saving measures, to Avamere Rehabilitation to begin her road to recovery from the “care” she had received at Roselane. For a time, it was reportedly touch-and-go, as Clara had to be weaned off drugs, that according to her doctors should have never been administered by Roselane in the first place. Over time, her health rebounded, and Clara officially moved into Dollie’s home full time on October 23rd of 2022.
Dollie called to report that she loves having her mom with her and that she couldn’t have accomplished it without the US~Observer, saying, “Ron, what you and the US~Observer did for me and my mother saved her life, as well as mine. It saved us emotionally and as a family.” She continued, “you saved us from monsters.”
For me, I am happy that Clara will be lovingly cared for by a daughter who was unwilling to let her mother be disappeared by a guardian who obviously feels worried that she did something worth being sued over.
