He was a proud Port Gamble S’Klallam tribal member, and a member of the Full Gospel Indian Shaker Church. Mike travelled far and wide with the Shaker Church and the tribal canoe journeys. He made countless friends with his easy laugh and charming personality.

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.

David Colin Chadband, was the first-born child of Colin Henry Chadband and Marian (Indart), on December 19, 1947, in Santa Maria, CA. He died on June 9, 2017, following an 11 month battle with liver cancer.

David was very private about his illness, so many friends and family may be surprised to learn of his passing. David knew what he wanted and with the help our Hospice team (his loving wife Kathy, children Colin and Emma, sister Colleen (Chadband) O’Hollaren, brother Paul Chadband, life long friends Bill and Jil Delanty, nurse Lisa and aide Jillian) he died peacefully at home on Bainbridge Island, WA, surrounded by his loved ones.

Dave grew up in sunny California and loved baseball and surfing. He was drafted January 24, 1968, into the U.S. Army and bravely served in Vietnam until his release from active duty on January 4, 1970, receiving the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and Vietnam Campaign Medal. Upon return to the states, he spent time skateboarding and surfing in Southern California and Hawaii. He eventually settled in Huntington Beach, CA, where he opened up his own surf shop “Pacific Surfboards” on Main Street in Huntington Beach. It was there that he met and later married the love of his life, Kathy Hagan in 1971.

After leaving his surf shop business, Dave worked construction for many years, until being employed by the Department of Defense (DOD) in Seal Beach, CA as a blocker and bracer. He transferred to Keyport, WA in 1987, and remained with the DOD for 34 years, until retirement on May 2, 2014.

David is survived by his wife Kathlene (Hagan), son Colin David (Suquamish, WA), daughter Emma Kathlene (Washington, DC), brother Paul Chadband (Norma) and their son John, sister Colleen O’Hollaren (Mark) and their children Sean and Megan. He was preceded in death by his parents Colin and Marian, brother Stephen (Debra and children Dustin, Kevin, Randi), and our littlest angel Chelsea Rose Chadband (daughter of Paul and Norma).

We invite friends and family to an “open house” on June 17th at 3:00 p.m. for a taste of some of Dave’s favorite barbecue. He was quite the gentle man and his love for family, soccer, golf, football, baseball, history, politics, crosswords, cookies and whiskey will keep him in our hearts and minds forever.

Mazie Louise Chichester, having said her final goodbyes to family and close friends passed on peacefully in her apartment at Madison House on Bainbridge Island Washington on June 1, 2017 at the age of 98. Her sons David, Lance and Todd and daughter-in-law Hilde were by her side during her last earthly hours.

Our beloved Mother led a full and rich life, gave out much love and received much back. She “never met a stranger” and found joy in conversing with just about everyone. She was sharp and alert until a few weeks before her death.

Known as Amazin’ Maze or Miss Mazie to many of her friends, she was born to Maybelle and Elmer Locke on November 27, 1918 in Detroit Michigan. She grew up with three younger brothers; Bud, Cal, and Bob and attended public school in Detroit. Mazie went on to Michigan State University in Lansing and completed three years, majoring in languages. Then World War II came along, and Mazie went to work as a supply clerk at the Willow Run plant that produced B-24 bombers.

Mazie was a “war bride” having met the love of her life and married Harvey Chichester, in 1944. A Lieutentant in the Army, Dad served in the Philippines and Japan while Mazie lived with her mother in Detroit. Following the end of the war, Mazie and Harvey moved to Brooklyn for 7 years and then Baldwin, Long Island for 20 years. Along the way, four sons were born and raised; David, Lance, Todd and Glen (deceased). Needless to say, these were “exciting” years for Mazie and Harvey; countless baseball, basketball and soccer games, Cub and Boy scouts and a household bustling with activity. She even found time to work part time for a Pre School and a summer camp and serve as a Den Mother.

Mazie and Harvey moved to Oakridge New Jersey in 1972. All the boys were out of the house, and a new phase began; new friends, traveling in the US and abroad and membership in the Echo Lake Baptist Church, a community that became an integral part of Mazie’s life.

In 1981, after 37 years of marriage, Harvey died of cancer, and Mazie began the next leg of her journey. She was an independent and adventuresome soul who traveled the U.S., Europe, Australia, Israel, Canada and other lands. She served for two decades on the Board of Directors of the Baptist Home Society in Newark and its successor, the Cliffs at Eagle Rock in West Orange and on the Board of the Baptist Home at Brookmeade in Rhinebeck NY.

In 1995, Mazie moved to a condo at Bald Eagle Commons in West Milford where she continued to thrive, embrace new friends and enjoy more travels abroad. She dedicated herself to Echo Lake Baptist Church, and its members of all ages became a second home. She served on various committees, reached out to families and became very close to its pastor. Mazie studied the Bible and attended classes regularly. Her personal faith in God carried her through life.

In 2014, Mazie moved to Bainbridge Island, which provided a wonderful opportunity for Hilde and David to spend lots of time with her. She appreciated the mild climate and beauty and viewing from her window the masts of sailboats in Eagle Harbor.

She loved to sing and dance and eat…like a champ and hardly gained a pound. She was resilient, compassionate and loving. Mazie left indelible marks on many lives and is survived by the three sons and their spouses as well as seven grand children and eight great grand children.

A Remembrance is planned for June 24th at Madison House, 235 Madison Avenue at 2:00 and a subsequent service in New Jersey in August. Those wishing to donate in honor of Mazie may do so to Echo Lake Baptist Church, 1355 Macopin Road, West Milford NJ 07480 c/o Judy Skeens.

Mary Madelyn Simpson Parker, passed away on Sunday, May 14, 2017 at Island Health and Rehabilitation on Bainbridge Island, Washington. She was born on February 20, 1942 and was 74 years of age.

Mary worked as a commercial insurance broker. She also coached softball teams through out her life.

Mary is survived by her husband Andy Parker of Bainbridge Island, WA and daughter Erin Parker of Seattle, WA. Her family was from Pennsylvania by way of Salt Lake City. She was the daughter of a championship winning college basketball coach and Trinity A bomb blast observer.

She loved sports. She was a Championship tennis player in high school. She played for an adult city women's softball team in Manhattan Kansas when she was 10 years old sharing a coke in the bar with team mates after the game. She coached and managed U16 and U18 women's softball teams which travelled to championships in California, Utah, and Florida.

She loved the Mariners...most of the time and Ichiro until he became a Yankee. She was a strong believer in civil rights issues and liberal politics. She ran away to Alabama as a teenager to march on Selma with Martin Luther King. She actively promoted Jerry Brown for president. She was fiercely loyal to her family and had our backs always. She was a literate, articulate, intelligent companion. She excelled as a commercial Insurance agent in a predominantly male field, sacrificing a career in the law to raise a family.

She was a strict coach with daughter Erin spending countless hours catching pitches for her on a five gallon plastic bucket. She loved travel to Europe and missed riding her motorcycle. She could throw a football and had a top shelf hook shot that was an essential skill for a 4'11 basketball player. Memorial contributions can be made to The Southern Poverty Law Center or the ACLU.

Donald W. Pattsner, passed away on Thursday, May 4, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was bornand was 68 years of age.

Don was born on May 20, 1948 and raised in Seattle, Washington. He was the eldest of four children, the first son to Andy and Dorothy Pattsner.

Don graduated from Eastern Washington University and was quickly drafted into the US Army to fight in Vietnam. Don excelled in math so he was placed in the position of Artillery Fire Direction Control. He often joked that he was one of the first computers. The Vietnam War ended but its memory was never far from Don. He was a politically liberal man with strong convictions. After Dan Quayle was elected as Vice President, Don decided to wear all black in protest. He wore black all his remaining days.

Don lived for over 20 years on a boat in Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island. He spent his boat-dwelling days without a TV, telephone or computer but enjoyed reading and had an encyclopedic knowledge of many things, among them geography and history.

He had various jobs over the years, including taxi driver and reprographer. He met weekly with a group of friends of a certain age, which he affectionately called “the geezer group,” and played bridge several times a week.

Twelve years ago, while playing bridge in Pegasus, Don met the love of his life, Cathy Gori. Don quickly became a part of her life and her family, and will be missed greatly. He projected a gruff image, but the real Don was a caring person who was thoughtful, kind and loyal. Don was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by Cathy, her children and grandchildren, and his siblings Michael, Mark and Connie. At his request there will be no service. Arrangements entrusted to Cook Family Funeral Home.
