Ila Gayle Barnett, passed away on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at her residence on Bainbridge Island, WA with her family by her side.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Barney (1980) and her cherished daughter Carolyn Gayle Frame (2016.) She is survived by her daughter Pam Robinson and her twin sons Kent and Kurt Barnett, Sister Jayne Wood, 9 Grandchildren, 18 Great Grandchildren, 4 Great Great Grandchildren and dozens of extended family who were proud to call her Grandma. She loved all unconditionally.

Gayle, as she liked to be called, was born in Clarkston, WA on April 29, 1925. She was born in her Grandmother’s kitchen like her cousins before her. She was part of a large and caring extended family full of loving Aunts, Uncles and cousins. She spent her formative years living amongst them. For that she was always grateful.

Gayle met and married the love of her life, Carrell Laverne, “Barney” when she was 15. They found each other in Lewiston, ID and fell immediately in love. They had 6 children by the time she was 21. Her first and third daughters (Sandra and Mary) died in childbirth. Gayle was a wonderful mother. She was a self taught cook and baker who loved to create and sew to the delight of her family. They came home from school to warm breads, cookies and hugs often accompanied by a gaggle of neighborhood children. Gayle was an avid gardener and took great pride in her beautiful roses. The local deer were also appreciative despite her generous application of cougar poop.

Gayle was very involved in AA and enjoyed the love and support of her community. She was a source of inspiration and strength for many.

Gayle may have left us physically but her spirit remains and lives on through those she has loved and who have loved her.

A memorial service will be held at 2pm on September 23, 2017 at the Filipino American Hall on Bainbridge Island. Please sign the online guest book for the family. Arrangements entrusted to Cook Family Funeral Home.

She later met Francis Loverich of Bainbridge Island and they were married on Sept. 6, 1942. She gave birth to 3 sons, Gary (1944), Wayne (1946) and Eddie (1948). During this time, Francis, a skilled shipwright followed his employer (Martinolich Shipyards) from the San Francisco to San Diego but decided to move back to Bainbridge Island, Washington in 1951.

In 1957 Francis finished building the family home on 12 acres at Island Center. While her boys were in school Elaine pursued her vocation as a homemaker, participating in the local Catholic Church and with her extended family and island friends. Later she was employed as a book keeper at the Town and Country Market until her retirement from there in 1986.

She and Francis changed their names to Nana and Pops when they welcomed their first grandchild in 1972 and the nine others that quickly followed. As grandparents Nana and Pops were happy to have 7 growing grand-children within walking distance of their home.
After retirement Elaine and Francis enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and taking short vacations on cruise ships. Their first great-grandchild was born on 1999. This prompted a name change to Nana Elaine. In January of 2002 Francis died after a brief illness and Elaine continued to live in the family home as 13 more great-grandchildren joined the family. All of the children were a real source of love and pleasure for Nana Elaine.

In 2015 she moved out of the family home and into assisted living at Wyatt House and then about a year later to the Madrona house, both on Bainbridge and a both a short 5 minute drive from the family home. She was a wife for 59 years, mother for 72, grandmother for 45 and great grandmother for 17 years.

Harold Graydon Gray, passed away on Monday, August 28, 2017 at his residence on Bainbridge Island, Washington. He was born on March 17, 1945 and was 72 years of age. Arrangements are pending through Cook Family Funeral Home.

known as Grady to everyone, passed from this life on August 28, 2017 at his lovely home on Bainbridge Island. He succumbed to pancreatic cancer after a four-month wrangle. He was 72.

Born in Bell, California on March 17, 1945, Grady was a Saint Patrick’s Day baby weighing in at just over 3 pounds. He survived whooping cough in his early months. His parents were Harold C. Gray and Ardis Louise Ridenour Gray. Grady joined his sister, Karen Lee. The family lived in Seattle and Bellingham.

Grady finished High School and went on to the University of Washington to study architecture. His schooling was interrupted by the death of his father and the Vietnam War where he served aboard the USS Camberra. He finished his bachelors and Masters Degree at Western Washington University where he met Dana. They were certain and were married within the year.

Grady worked as school psychologist in schools in the shadow of Mt. Rainier. They welcomed Daymon in 1975 and Shane in 1977. They took a bold leap and moved to California for Grady to study Clinical Psychology at Psychological Studies Institute in Palo Alto where received his Ph.D. in 1980.

When Dana found employment in the schools on Bainbridge Island, they moved to the island and began their careers. They raised their children and collected a fabulous, diverse, loving gaggle of friends. In 1986, he journeyed to Zurich to complete his education and become a practitioner of Process Oriented Psychology – shaping his lively, loving therapeutic style.

Dana and Grady were part of many orbits of people in their community. They were members of the school community and the adult soccer community. They were involved in local professional circles as well as in Process Psychology circles in Seattle, Mt. Vernon and Yachats, Oregon. Other groups included kids’ friends and their parents, soccer moms and dads, golf buddies, the art community, swimming and running friends, and, of course, those wonderful people who were Grady’s clients and dream group participants.

Grady threw himself into his life endeavors. He developed practices in Seattle and at his home on Bainbridge seeing many families through multiple generations and guiding clients through changes and challenges for decades. He built on to his homes. He built offices and waiting rooms, a shop, a sauna, a green house, and a meditation hut with the architect’s fire that never ceased. He jogged, swam, ran marathons and triathlons. He planted gardens and 20 varieties of bamboo. His bamboo tours were legendary. He played soccer with passion. He golfed. And did he golf. He packed in all the golf that could be played in his last two decades.

He birdied the 18th at St. Andrews, had three hole-in-ones and played to a 5 handicap just this April. He made wine as the Crystal Springs Vintner. He wrote a book from his experiences with his dreamwork groups. He collected life-long friends.

Grady is survived by his wife of 45 years, Dana Sharlee Marrs (yes, Sharlee), his sons Daymon (m. Erikka Martin) and grandchildren, Byron, Winslow and Gabriel in Hailey, Idaho and Shane ( m. Gretchen Engel) and Audrey and Tristan in Redmond, Washington. He is survived by his sister, Karen Shoemaker, of Hanford, California.

We will gather to celebrate his life - - - a life that he recently summarized with a dream figure of a beautiful, Spanish dancer - -He saw his life a dance - - - Dancing with Karmelita.

We will gather at the Commons at Bainbridge High School on September 16 at 2:00. If you choose to make a donation in Grady’s name, please go to: donations.onecallforall.org In lieu of flowers, take a friend to lunch. In lieu of feeling the loss, come celebrate his fortunate, precious life.

He found peace hiking in the Olympic Mountains and kicking back at his parent’s home in beautiful Happy Valley, Sequim. Most of all, CJ just liked being in the company of friends and family, watching his beloved Mariners or Seahawks or reading a good book on stock fundamentals or economic history.

Courage to change
The things I can,
And the Wisdom to know
The difference.

James Ring Gibson, passed away on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at The Foss Home in Seattle, Washington. He was born in Seattle on April 6, 1941 and was 76 years of age. He grew up in Magnolia, where he attended elementary and junior high school and then Queen Anne High School (class of 1959).

His parents, Frank and Elsie Gibson, both founding members of the Mountaineers (which later became REI), were without any doubt responsible for instilling in him his love for the mountains and his lifelong passion for skiing.

In 1962 he decided to enlist in the army (since he would have been drafted anyway), when his ski coach had told him that the army had a Ski Patrol in the Bavarian Alps, and if he volunteered he could choose which country he wanted to be sent to and hopefully join this Ski Patrol.

But before this came to pass he was stationed in Würzburg, Germany, and because of his military training in the Signal Battalion as a radio operator, mainly Morse Code in those days, he was "banished" (at least in the eyes of his sergeant) to a small hut on a lonely mountain top with a monastery. But the sergeant didn't realize that the monastery also ran a hotel and a beer brewery, and what was best of all: there was a small ski lift right outside his little hut.

This is where he met Elke, his future wife, who had come there with a group of
university students for a nurse helpers course during their vacation.
Well, as they say: the rest is history.

He eventually made it to that Ski Patrol in Garmisch in 1964 and was released from the army and came back to Seattle in the summer of 1965.
Elke joined him there a few months later and they were married 3 days later (on New Year's Eve) at Sacred Heart.

Their daughter Sonja was born in 1968. Together they often traveled to Europe to see family and friends and visit many countries, but especially those with mountains.
In 1989, out of the blue, while studying in Urbino, Italy,their daughter Sonja was killed in a car accident, and life never was the same.

At that time Jim was finishing the house he was building on Bainbridge Island, where he and Elke lived until 2002. They moved to a condo in North Seattle, and again, to be closer to the mountains, they also bought a cabin near Stevens Pass.

He always enjoyed good company and good food and drink with our wonderful friends and loved being an "adopted grandpa" for many of their grandchildren like Brandon and Nina, Dylan and Magnus, Natalie, Eivin and Nolan, and Nava.

He is survived by his wife Elke and his sister Heidi Gibson Renz.

Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend the Graveside Service on Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at Kane Cemetery on Bainbridge Island, WA. A reception will follow to celebrate his life at the Port Madison Lutheran Church on 14000 Madison Ave NE, Bainbridge Island.

Virginia Mae Elmore, goodbye, from all your family and friends—which after nearly 96 years are many and varied. Always your very own person, you lived your life and departed that life in your own way leaving a lifetime of memories and stories for those left behind.

You grew up in Hoquiam with strong family support and in 1942 you met our Dad (Marion Edward (Ed) Elmore), the love of your life, at a dance to support the servicemen posted to the area. You had a girl, a boy, and another girl—who grew up with you and Ed as examples of what it means to be the best people they can be.

Grandchildren became part of the mix and again you were a cornerstone of their lives and an example of how to live strong. More recently, a couple of great grandchildren were added to the mix and it is up to the rest of us to continue to set the example you so strongly demonstrated for them.

You were courageous—embarking on a cross-country trip with your first daughter along with many other service member wives—adventurous—twice living in the Philippines, braving the snowstorms in the Copper Canyon of Mexico and the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and sailing across a mountain lake in the high Sierras—so smart—master bridge, crossword puzzles, current events, and financial management—and always busy. Everyone who ever met and got to know you has a special memory and there’s no question that while we will miss your presence you will always be there in our memories and our daily lives.

Jeanne’s journey through life ended on August 12, 2017. She is survived by her daughter Vicki and her children, Paul, Pat, and Jessica; her son Mark; and her daughter Rebecca and her children Galen (wife Jagoda and daughter Sophia) and Kyra (husband Nathan and son Andrew).

In Jeanne’s last years, Island Volunteer Caregivers, were an important part of her life and support system. Donations to this organization will help support the work they do for others.

Take a moment to sign Mom’s guest book and share one of your memories of this special woman.
