(Sorry for the duplicate message if you got this from two different places.)

Here's the Seattle Times obit w/ online guestbook you can add to if you like. Thanks for the love there. A special thanks to Irv Pomeranz for saying Mom was "the real deal", to Evie who shared what Mike Gallagher said when offering Mom her first bookkeeping job, and to Fran and Elizabeth for other wording. (Anything that sounded poetic was probably not me!)
The choice of photos was tough, but this one exuded so much joy I couldn't resist it. Just goes to show what a full life she lived and how full of love she lived it, and that she was so incredibly beautiful and vibrant all the way through. The face shot was cropped from a photo taken when we were in Austria in April 2017 for Stef's Winter World Special Olympics. Stef had just been awarded a gold medal and Mom was over the moon!

(Stef's Correction: Mom moved to Bainbridge in '97.)
