Becky Anne Bancroft

BANCROFT, Becky Anne, With profound sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend, Becky Anne Bancroft, who left this earth after an astounding show of strength, perseverance, and determination. Becky leaves behind a multitude of proud family members, friends, and loved ones. She is survived by her loving husband William (Billy) Bancroft; daughter, Erin Bancroft (and boyfriend Jon "Eddy" Edwards); and sons, Cory Bancroft and Casey Bancroft (and girlfriend, Natalie Braham), all of Spokane, WA; her siblings: Sandy of Reno NV; Charlie of Fresno, CA; Wendy (and husband Scott) of Mukilteo, WA; Patty of Ogden, UT; Wally of Soda Springs, ID; Becky enjoyed special closeness and bond to Billy's siblings: Bonnie of Spokane, WA; Cathy of Spokane Valley, WA; Chuck of Seattle, WA; Chris (and wife Jennifer) of Valley Center, CA; Laurie (and husband Gary) of Greenacres, WA; and Gus of Spokane WA; a precious grandson due in June; and a vast array of nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors, and friends, all whose lives were positively impacted by Becky's presence. She was preceded in death by her parents, Evelyn Wilkes of Ogden, UT; Floyd Wadman of Spokane, WA; Harley and Louise Bancroft of Greenacres, WA; sister in law and friend, Carol Aguillion; and treasured pets: Pup, Cain, Cool, and Maynard. Becky's time was spent landscaping and gardening, and her gardens were impressive and flourished under her care. She was fit and beautiful, inside and out; and both animals and children flocked to her (She is especially missed by her boxer, Mabel). Becky enjoyed photography, with a focus on sunrises and sunsets; kept a beautiful home; and took pride in treating all who entered it like family, offering hugs and a listening ear to anyone who needed her. Becky adored the Christmas season, and decorating for the holidays was the highlight of her year. She was a talented chef, and thoroughly enjoyed cooking meals like lasagna and spaghetti. She relished all kinds of music, spending much of her time listening to her husband's bands and dancing. She was also currently learning to play piano. Becky's greatest source of joy came from spending time with her family; sharing a day on the boat with loved ones; reading a good mystery novel; watching a romantic comedy; cheering on the Seattle Seahawks (or cursing at them); basking in the sun; and having a good laugh. Her humor and wit were sharp as a tack, even in the end; and her endurance and determination were a source of motivation and awe to her family. The last three months of her life were spent in the ICU at the U of W Medical Center in Seattle, being only the third person in the nation to receive liver dialysis, and opening up doors for future transplant candidates. Countless lives will be saved because of her perseverance. She was an absolute champion, and encouraged all who knew her by never giving up while waiting for her liver/kidney transplant. Becky's family asks everyone to educate themselves on organ donation, and to become registered organ donors. The legacy Becky leaves behind is that of loyalty, resolution, and tenacity. She was a blessing to all who were privileged to know her, and will continue to be an inspiration for generations to come. She will be forever missed. Memorial service for Becky will be held at Thornhill Valley Chapel, 1400 S. Pines Rd., Spokane Valley, WA, at 2pm on Saturday, February 12th.

Brian Gene Conlin

Brian Gene CONLIN Oct 10, 1966 ~ Feb 1, 2011 Brian was taken suddenly and much too young on February 1st, leaving heartbroken family and many grieving friends. We remember what he did and who he leaves behind, but passionately we honor who he was. Brian was a husband who truly loved his wife, a father smitten with and devoted to his girls. A faithful son and brother. Brian was a trusted friend who inspired and supported, a colleague who mentored and encouraged. Brian believed in you even when you didn't believe in yourself. Brian was the bright future and the good times ahead, and at his core believed in that for all of us. Brian was win win (followed by the crack 'that means I win, and I win again'). Brian was dawn when all was dark, and when dawn was late, he was unfailing confidence. Brian was the guy you hoped to see at the party, whether it was the Union Michigan Hog Roast, the pitch meeting, the family card game or 'Drinking Liberally' with the county Democrats. Brian was the quip, the laugh, the juicy steak when the rest of the world was hamburger. Brian was 'how do you like me now?' - 'the kid' - the cool uncle. Brian's night came too soon, but his light shines through all of us touched by him. We can't believe he's gone. Rest in peace. Rest now. Brian is survived by: His wife: Kim Hutchinson. Daughters: Skylar & McKenna; Siblings: Ken, Sean, Kelsey, Kyle & Ryan; Mother: Marigene Lutz; Father & Step-Mother: Ken & Denise Conlin; Brother-in-Arms: Doug Davis. And other assorted relatives, in-laws, friends and colleagues too numerous to list. Services info: Washington. Wednesday Feb 9 - Bellevue, WA 3:00 pm - reception to follow Eastshore Unitarian Church. 12700 Southeast 32nd Street, Bellevue, WA 98005 Michigan. Saturday Feb 19 - Union, MI. Noon - reception to follow, Cass County Conservation Club, 13710 US 12, Union, MI 49130 Please bring your fondest memories of Brian to share. Brian would want you to dress comfortably, laugh a lot, and appreciate all the people in your life! Support for the girls: To do what Brian can no longer do, a family fund has been set up to support Skylar and McKenna in their future educational endeavors. Contributions are greatly appreciated and can be made to: The Conlin Family Fund. Salal Credit Union, Account #160087, PO Box 19340, Seattle, WA 98109-1340
