Betty May Brooks

Betty May BROOKS Dec. 20, 1921 ~ Feb. 12, 2011 While living in Port Angeles, Wash., Betty Brooks hosted a weekly radio show during which she played organ music on her Hammond from her living room. Every show began and ended with Betty playing Debussy's 'Clair De Lune,' her theme. On Saturday, Feb. 12, her mother's birthday, Betty, 89, passed away reluctantly at Richmond Beach Rehabilitation Center in Seattle while the sounds of 'Clair De Lune' played on the Arts channel, fittingly performed by a female organist on a Parisian pipe organ. A professional organist, Betty died one week after suffering a massive stroke in her apartment at the home of her daughter. Born Betty May Harris in Bremerton on Dec. 20, 1921, Betty was raised in Port Angeles. Her father, Orville ran a sheet metal shop on Front Street. Her mother, Rhea Meister Harris was a God-fearing homemaker and Sunday school teacher/superintendent who loved baseball and Hitchcock movies. Betty attended Port Angeles High School, graduating in 1939. She lived in Port Angeles until 1962 when the family moved to Magnolia in Seattle. She was the wife of the late Jonathan Perry Brooks (1922-2007), and of the late EugeneM. Nye (1920-1977) and of the late George Lester Northup (1917- 1996). She was the sister of the late John Raymond Harris (1919-1993). A professional organist throughout her life, Betty studied the pipe organ, taught private lessons, played for church and played for funerals. Upon her move to Seattle, she became organist at First United Methodist Church in downtown and later was the organist of the First Church of Christ Scientist on Capitol Hill. She was also a member and organist at the Bothell Church of Christ Scientist for many years. At the time of her death, she was a member of the University Temple United Methodist Church. Betty was proud of being THE first member of the Methodist Church in Port Angeles, Wash. Her father was instrumental in the construction of the church. The family raised money for the pipe organ, which she played as church organist. At age 66, she set out to complete a dream: She enrolled at Shoreline Community College. At 71 she earned her AA degree and was accepted to the University of Washington. She declined to study music, her greatest strength. 'I already know that,' she said, 'I want to earn a degree in something new.' In 1998 at age 76 Betty earned her BA in English - and quite a celebration ensued, with family coming from around the country to lift sparkling cider in her honor. She continued to talk of earning her masters and applied to University of Washington and Western Washington University. Betty is survived by her son Brent Northup of Helena, Mont. and her daughter Wendy Barone of Lynnwood, Wash.; her granddaughter Gina Barone Simmons of Chicago; and her granddaughter Katherine Northup of Helena, Mont. She is also survived by Jonathan's three daughters, Carol VanDuyne of Renton, Diane Lohof of Camarillo, Calif, and Janet Knispel of Calabasas, Calif. A memorial service of pipe organ music will be held on Saturday, March 12, at 2:00 p.m. at University Temple United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Northwest Hospital Foundation, Seattle, Wash. Betty is buried at Tahoma National Cemetery, Kent, Washington.

Karen Dianne Odum

ODUM, Karen Dianne, (Vaughn), As a Valentine's gift to the heavens, a bright new star was added to shine down on all those that she loved and cherished. On February 14, 2011, Karen Odum entered into rest after bravely battling a short illness in Spokane, WA. Karen was born May 29, 1952 in Hemet, CA to Dewey and Connie Vaughn. While growing up, Karen lived in a variety of places that eventually led to her settling down in Washington State. It was here that she attended Cheney High School and graduated in 1970-¦the same year that she began dating her best friend and future husband, Phil Odum. On October 6, 1972, Phil and Karen were married and had two sons, Ben and Chris. Together, they raised their sons near the Cheney area on Chapman Lake. While living there, Karen lived in the splendor of nature that surrounded her family. It was the simple life that she enjoyed with many peaceful nights on the lake with her husband fishing and wilderness walks with her sons. Karen found happiness in the little things that life had to offer her. The sound of the frogs' chorus and the birds' songs that signaled spring's return, delighting in the antics of baby squirrels that grew up near her windowsill throughout the summer and the talk of the autumn turkeys in the fall. To her, these were nature's little gifts that she always cherished. Gardening was another joy that she shared with her husband. Together, they would spend time creating an Eden filled with pathways that were lined with beautiful flowers that she loved. Protecting her gardens were a multitude of beloved gnomes and angels who had each been given a name by her. Karen was a huge movie buff. Every night, we all knew that she could be found curled up on the couch watching a movie until the wee hours of dawn. For her birthday and Mother's Day every year, her sons would take her into the big city to watch a movie of her choice. Each time, she would get giddy over the idea of sneaking candy into the theatre to watch a movie and spend the afternoon with her boys. She was never much of a sport enthusiast. Oftentimes, she'd make us all chuckle as she would ask us what inning the Seahawks were in or if they had just scored a point. There was one sport that she did watch however, and that was basketball. To be more exact-¦the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Karen was a regular nut for the Zags! Even up to her last days, she would pump her little fists at the TV screen with enthusiasm as she cheered them on to victory. Karen had a personality that was hard not to adore. A very sweet person who had a twinkle in her eye and a giggle that could crack a smile out of the most hardened face. She was a very loving and devoted wife to her husband, never leaving his side whether it be thick or thin. She was a very influential and inspirational mother who helped mold her sons into the persons that they have become. As a wife and as a mother, she would have valiantly laid down her life to protect those that she loved. Even though Karen will be dearly missed, we know that she will always be there filling us with love as she watches over us and protects us. Preceding her in death were her parents: Dewey and Connie, stepmother Dorothy, one brother Gary, and her precious aunt Carol. Surviving her is her loving husband, Phil, of 38 years; two sons: Ben, 36, and Chris, 29; sisters Marcheta Worden and Debra Cooper; brother Ronald Vaughn; numerous nieces and nephews; and her young granddaughter Abigail Sporcic who she is now lovingly watching over. Per Karen's request, no formal ceremony will be held. Instead, she would like to ask everyone to hold their own personal service and remember her in each of their hearts.

Bill was a newspaper reporter, public relations man for the Apollo moon-shot rockets and the roll out of the Boeing 747. He was woodworker, novelist, mariner and boat builder. He and his wife of 63 years, Barbara, amazed family and friends when they retired in their fifties and built a 50-foot wooden ketch from the centerline up.

Bill was a fixer of anything and could turn a chunk of wood into a beautiful and functional piece of art.
