Our mother, Marilyn, died peacefully at her home on August 10, 2015 after a long and happy life for which she was grateful. She was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma on October 26, 1925 and moved with her family to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she graduated from high school.
Marilyn graduated from the University of New Mexico where she met her beloved husband, John, of 66 years. John and Marilyn were married in Albuquerque on Sept. 1, 1947, then moved to Oroville, Wash. where they raised their family. Our parents moved to the Seattle area in 1986 to be near their family. Mom was a much loved wife, mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by our father John and survived by children Karen (Richard) Haskell, Louise (David) Haskell Erickson, Terry (Scott) Haskell Cartier, John (Vicki) Cheves Haskell Jr.; niece Frederika (Pete) Haskell; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
At her request, no service is planned. Remembrances can be sent to Trinity Episcopal Church, PO Box 1270, Oroville, WA, 98844 or a charity of your choice.
