Linda Lou West Johnston, sui generis, passed away on July 15, 2017 from ovarian cancer

Linda was born on April 21, 1946 in Kansas City, Missouri, and was adopted as an infant by Dr. Robert Kenneth West and Louie Lucille Gooding West.

Linda grew up in Kansas City, Chicago, and Shreveport, Louisiana. On Bastille Day in 1962, she met Stanley Warren Johnston and they were married in 1966. They were madly, passionately, totally, and irrevocably in love for the rest of their lives.

Linda earned a degree in Mathematics from Centenary College of Louisiana, and a Master’s in Statistics from Rutgers University in New Jersey. She worked as a computer programmer, statistician, financial analyst, business analyst, and manager for Western Electric and AT&T in Princeton, Basking Ridge, and other locations in New Jersey and New York City.

Linda was an avid reader of all sorts of fiction and non-fiction. She enjoyed, and was good at, crossword puzzles, Scrabble, Jeopardy, and other word and trivia games. She enjoyed many kinds of music, from classical to country, but as a rule preferred things composed at least fifty years ago. She enjoyed travel and made hundreds of trips both nearby and across the globe; Switzerland and New Zealand were two favorite places. She loved gardens and gardening, and always knew the correct Latin botanical names of all her plants.

Linda’s primary lifelong avocation was sewing. She made most of her own clothes, many useful and beautiful items for the home, and countless gifts for others. She enjoyed learning new techniques and teaching others. She was an active member of several sewing organizations including the American Sewing Guild, Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas Clothing and Textile Advisors, and Kitsap Quilters.

At age 47, Linda and Stan simultaneously requested leaves of absence from their employers, and subsequently took early retirement. Having researched for several years where they wanted to live in retirement, they chose Bainbridge Island, Washington, and bought land there in 1993. In 1995, they moved there and built a house of their own design, where they lived happily ever after together.

A memorial service will be held at Kiana Lodge (14976 NE Sandy Hook Rd. Poulsbo, WA) on Thursday July 20 at 11:00 AM. Memorial contributions would be appropriate to either the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (www.fredhutch.org) for research on ovarian cancer, or Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas Clothing and Textile Advisors (www.kop-cta.org) to teach sewing skills to the next generation.

Mary Ruth (Elliott) Giddens, a lay minister who composed poetry and songs of worship for six decades, died peacefully on July 10, 2017 on Bainbridge Island, Washington, following a courageous battle against cancer. A loving mother and grandmother, she passed at the age of 82 in the embrace of her family.

Mary was born in Pueblo, Colorado, in 1935 to J.R. Elliott, a traveling encyclopedia salesman, and Josephine (Crenshaw) Elliott, a former school teacher. She attended Central High School in Pueblo until her senior year, when the family moved to Denver. She graduated from Denver’s East High School in 1953.

Mary was married twice, first to George N. Hunt, a radar systems engineer, and second to Ralph C. Giddens, a refinery manager. She lived in Manhattan Beach, California, for more than 30 years, where she raised five children and worked as an area adviser for the South Bay Daily Breeze. She and Ralph retired to Vista, California, where he died in 2005.

Called to minister as a young adult, she preached the gospel in prisons and on L.A.’s skid row, and conducted weekly worship services in nursing homes for nearly 50 years. A gifted poet and composer, she wrote thousands of hymns and praise songs.

Mary is predeceased by her daughter, Rebecca Suzanne Hunt, Timothy Hunt, and her son-in-law, Bradley Louis Crawford. She is survived by her children, Steve Hunt (Luanne) of Apple Valley, California; David Hunt of Holly Springs, N.C.; Debbie Crawford of Carthage, N.C.; Mark Giddens of Bainbridge Island, Washington; and Jonathan Giddens of Bothell, Washington; and her grandchildren, Amanda Crawford of Raleigh, N.C. and Scott Crawford of Carthage, N.C.

There will be no service. She will be cremated and the ashes of Ralph, Mary and their beloved Chihuahua “Chi Chi” will be scattered in the Ocean. Her motto was - “Go tell what great things the Lord hath done for you!”

One of her favorite bible verses was, “He hath not dealt with us according to our sins, but according to his love and mercy.” She said that she experienced that love and mercy her whole life.

She has gone home to be with Jesus and the loved ones gone before.

Jay Winston Mitchell, passed away July 9, 2017 at his home on Bainbridge Island. He was born in Des Moines, Iowa on January 9, 1937, the youngest child of Jay Austin and Ruth Mitchell.

Jay attended East High School in Des Moines and graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in architecture. In 1960, he married Janice Livengood and moved to San Francisco, where he completed his Naval service and practiced architecture.

Jay joined the Rex Whitaker Allen and Associates architectural firm in San Francisco, where he helped design several California hospitals, including the Mercy San Juan hospital in Carmichael and the Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz. Later, he joined with friends to create the architectural firm Sabin O’Neal Mitchell. In 1973, the firm merged with Hoover Associates. Jay became president of the firm in 1983 and remained so until his retirement in 1995. He contributed to many commercial, public and residential building projects, including Bishop Ranch in San Ramon, and the restoration of the Stanford Theater in downtown Palo Alto.

Jay, Jan, and their two children, Jay Curtis and Jill, resided in Palo Alto, CA, at the time of Jan’s death in 1988. Jay married fellow widow Marilyn Price in 1990 and adopted her young daughter, Sarah. Throughout their marriage, Jay and Marilyn honored the memories of their late spouses and joyfully embraced an expanded family of six Mitchell and Price children.

Jay, Marilyn, and Sarah traveled extensively, and lived in Oxford, England for a year in 1993. When they returned to the U.S., they moved from Palo Alto to Sammamish, WA. In 2001, they moved to Bainbridge Island, where they lived in a house Jay designed to perfectly fit its location on Eagle Harbor.

A generous and kind man, Jay found many ways to give back to the community. Some of his contributions included serving as a deacon and elder at First Presbyterian Church in Palo Alto; chairing the Palo Alto Planning Commission; serving on the Board of Directors of the Overlake School in Redmond, WA; chairing the Building and Grounds ministry at Grace Episcopal Church in Bainbridge Island; and co-chairing, for a decade, the vehicle donations for Bainbridge Island’s annual Rotary Auction. A devoted Rotarian, Jay served on numerous committees and worked for many years on service scholarships for youth.

Jay is survived by his wife, Marilyn Price-Mitchell, children Jay Mitchell, Jill (Gregg) Swenson and Sarah Price-Mitchell; the extended Price family children: Sue (Bob) Gavrich, Katie (Lance) Womack and Richard Price; and grandchildren: John Jay, Lucy, Bryn, and Cooper.

Mike’s childhood was spent surrounded by loving siblings and many cousins at the family property of his beloved grandmother, Celia Jackson.

Mike carried with him the cultural teachings of his people, which he shared freely through the tribal canoe journeys, including the 1989 Paddle to Seattle and the 1993 Journey to Bella Bella. He soon became a staple of the tribal journeys, and a steadfast skipper of his tribe’s canoe. He was a prayerful man, a cultural leader, and an avid friend to so many.

Annette  Herber, passed away peacefully in her sleep shortly after her 86th birthday, surprising all who loved her and her lively mind, bright spirit, and youthful step.

Annette had an indomitable capacity to welcome people with open arms into her life and family; her absence is almost incomprehensible.

She was a person who grasped joy wherever she could find it (and made some if none was around for the taking), and she never stopped looking for new things to learn or do. After raising five children, Annette returned to college to earn her degree in nutrition (finally casting her use of her children as nutrition experiments into a more legitimate light).

In her later years, she threw herself into her passions for music, gardening, learning Spanish, and searching for the vitamin combination that would solve life’s mysteries.

Her lifelong partnership with John, her husband of 56 years, still serves as the model for love and devotion to those she leaves behind, especially her five children and their spouses, and her ten grandchildren and their growing families, including three great-grandchildren (with another on the way).

Most of all, Annette leaves behind a legacy to her extensive family and friends of dogged independence, unconditional acceptance, earnest kindness, and a freezer full of ice cream.

A memorial will be held for Annette at the Waterfront Park Community Center, 370 Brien Dr. SE on Bainbridge Island at 3:00 P.M. on August 5.
