Alicia Mary Webster Forrest

Alicia Mary Webster FORREST October 14, 1947 ~ March 30, 2011 Alicia Forrest was born Alicia Mary Webster on October 14, 1947. She was the second of four children to Frank and Betty Webster of Port Angeles, Washington. As a child and into adulthood, she demonstrated an inspirational passion for life as well as an independent tendency to forge her own path. Alicia was a sister, mother, grandmother and friend. She lived with profound grace, an outward and inward beauty, a deep personal strength, a tender touch or word, a thoughtful action, an adventurous spirit and a deep and abiding love for all whom she cared about. She was the mother of two sons, Richard (Rick) and Mark, to whom she was Mom: a mother, guide, an incredible helper, an encourager, hero and a friend. Her honest and loving parenting raised two men who have a deep love of family, a strong and abiding commitment to friends, a solid work ethic and a view of the world that sees things in black and white while leaving room for compassion and tenderness for those who end up getting stuck in the gray. Alicia was very strong. Diagnosed with cancer at age 40, she defeated the threat and put cancer in the rearview mirror for 20 years. At age 60 she was diagnosed again and without self-pity, she bravely moved forward against all odds, claiming three more years to live on her own terms. She did not lose the fight: At the very least it was a draw and anyone who knew her is better for it. Alicia is survived by her sons Richard (Rick) and Mark Forrest, granddaughters Rachel and Lauren Forrest, mother Betty Webster, sisters Bernadette Webster and Mary Everhart, brother Burke Webster, her former husband Frank Forrest, some really wonderful cousins and aunts who loved her dearly, and a wonderful circle of close friends; Penny, Scott, Shay, Marcia, Lisa, Eileen, Elizabeth, Leslie, Diane, Maureen, Donna, Fred and many others who treasured her. A Memorial will be held for close friends and family at The Grand Ballroom @TPC Snoqualmie Golf Club on April 14 at 1:30 p.m. Address: 36005 SE Ridge St., Snoqualmie, WA 98065

Catherine J. Bovenkamp

After valiantly battling ovarian cancer for the past eight years, Catherine Bovenkamp, age 93, peacefully departed from her own home and crossed to the other side on April 7, 2011 to be with her Lord whom she served faithfully for a lifetime. Catherine realized her dreams of a happy 68 year marriage, a large loving family, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, all of which she referred to with joy as "her career". She took great delight in the simple things of life; in growing flowers big or small, sharing a hot cup of tea in beautiful china cups she collected, reading a good old fashioned romance novel, crocheting afghans for each grandchild and great-grandchild born, and spending precious snippets of time at "sister's tea", coffee with friends, and just "being" with her family. Catherine truly had a "servant's heart" and will always be remembered for her quiet strength, quick wit and soft laughter, kindness to others, and her joyful outlook on life no matter the circumstances. Born in Holland, Minnesota on September 21, 1917 to Hermanus and Maria (Scholten) Van Loo, Catherine moved to Lynden when she was 16 and graduated from Lynden Public High School in 1936. On October 17, 1939 Catherine married Peter Bovenkamp, Sr. After farming several years, she and her husband started Bovenkamp Livestock and Poultry Hauling. Together they ran the family business for over 40 years, raised their eight children, and enjoyed many wonderful retirement years in their own home. Catherine, by all accounts, lived a successful and full life, an "others centered" life of giving, passing on her faith and joy to all those around her. She was a member of First Reformed Church and was a faithful "behind the scenes" volunteer throughout her lifetime. Catherine is survived by children Bert (Norma Jo) Bovenkamp of Sumas, Marie (Bill) Bonsen of Lynden, Charlotte (Bob) Holmes-Bovenkamp of Ferndale, Trudy (Jim) Paige of California, Carol (Marv) Weidkamp of Lynden, Ed (Eva) Bovenkamp of Marysville, Arnie (Lavonne) Bovenkamp of Snohomish, and Kathy (Russ) Bovenkamp-Wilson of Bellingham, 22 grandchildren, 43 great-grandchildren, and sister, Gerdena Douma of California.

Dr. John Joseph Condon

A year ago our loving dad, grandpa and husband, John Joseph Condon with his family at his side went to be his Holy Father April 25, 2010. He was known to his endearing friends and family as Jack-born in Spokane, Washington on, March 31, 1931. He attended Saint Ann's School, Gonzaga High School, Gonzaga University and Creighton University. He earned his bachelor of science in Pharmacy and ultimately his doctorate of dental surgery specializing in pediatric dentistry. John's commitment to service began the day he graduated from Creighton serving his country in the U.S. Army from 1959 to 1961 and was honorably discharged as a captain. After his service he returned to Spokane to practice dentistry with his brother Dr. James Condon (deceased), then opening his own practice in 1967. Dr. John was true to his philosophy that healthcare is a family affair working through the years not only with his brother but his mother, daughters, granddaughters, cousin and son. His passion for the science of dentistry and his determination to bring the best care to his special little patients compelled him to a life of continuous learning, earning certifications from University of Oregon Dental School in special care for handicapped children, orthodontic post-graduate certification from, and many others including a certificate in sedation dentistry this past year. As an innovator in the field his practice was featured in the professional journal, Dental Economics and he held four patents pertaining to dental equipment. Dr. John also saw those that were underserved, so he opened an office in rural Odessa, WA in 1962 where it still is today and recent years opened his third office in Liberty Lake. His sense of empathy filled Dr. Condon's days long before the involvement of government in health care; he made time to care for those who would otherwise go without. His service took him to the Good Shepard's Home, the Antonio School, the House of Charity, the Morning Star Boy's Ranch and countless other organizations. Dr. Condon was not simply a dentist but a "caregiver" and was woven into the fabric of Spokane which was recognized in 2006 earning him the Sister Peter Claver Award from Sacred Heart Medical Center. Although Dad worked hard, he always made the time for his family of ten children; Ann Blaine, Lisa Boge and Mary (deceased), Mike, Mark, John, Bob, Larry, Ted and David Condon and his 29 adoring grandchildren and three wonderful great-grandchildren. He spent his life caring for his family and provided to us a life full of education, school sports, snow skiing, hunting, gardening and countless days at his beloved cabin on Hayden Lake. He embodied Thomas Jefferson's thoughts: "Dost love life then do not squander time because that is the stuff life is made of." He instilled that in his family, always pushing us to embrace our God given talents and to be the most we can be. He was at each of his children's side as they grew in their personal and professional lives, assisting to start five companies and spent untold hours giving us advice on the trials of the business world. As if he didn't have enough children of his own John was a mentor to many and always enjoyed a conversation with young people who had the will to work but maybe not the direction., His wife of nearly 54 years, Carolu (Neavins) Condon will forever miss her life long partner. She could have never guessed that senior class dance at Creighton would have lead to a life long journey with such a special man.Later in life, after all nine kids were grown, they traveled to Ireland,Australia, New Zealand and other warm spots throughout the Pacific. Mom and Dad enjoyed countless friends and time spent time with them throughoutthe northwest at lakes, the coast and endless nights of bridge. John walked through life with three brothers, James, Patrick, and William Condon (all deceased) and four sisters Mary Conley, Kathleen Green, Bridget Brockmeyer and Michell Wingard (deceased). He also spent many summers with Carolu's family; Tom Neavins, Sue Lohman, and Bob Neavins acting like teenagers taking in all that Hayden Lake had to offer-a couple of years ago Dad bought an old Century Coronado and they toured the lake laughing and carrying on., Many say you can tell a lot about a man by whom he surrounds himself with-but we say you can tell a lot about Jack by those who wanted to surround him. He is dearly missed but he lives on in so many people some close and some who may have never even met him., Interment will be held on April 16, 2011 at 2:00PM, at: Holy Cross Cemetery, North 7200 Wall Street, Spokane, WA.

He graduated from West Seattle High School and attended the University of Washington where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. In November 1941, he married Jane Ann Wicks of Ballard. Harry and Jane lived in Ballard until 1959 when they moved to Bellevue. In the early 1960's they lived in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and then moved back to Bellevue before retiring to Hood Canal. During Harry's 40-plus year career, he was the top salesman nationally for Olivetti-Underwood, Supervisor for Commercial Spares at Boeing, taught management development and leadership technique classes at Green River College, and retired after 10 years as a partner in Regency Group, a Bellevue commercial real estate company. Harry was active in service organizations all his life, including organizing the NW Model Air Meet at Sand Point NAS in 1955, was a local and national officer of the National Exchange Club, Vice President of Sales and Marketing Executives of Seattle, President of Bellevue's Eastside Tip Club and Commercial and Investment Brokers Assn. Jane and Harry 'retired' in 1986 to Belfair, Washington, on the north shore of Hood Canal, when his real work began. During the last twenty-five years, he was active on the Shoreline Management Advisory Board, Theler Community Center Board, Mason County Hotel-Motel Tax Advisory Board, Mason County Fairgrounds Advisory Board, President of the Economic Development Council, Private Industry Council, and North Mason Chamber, Chairman of the Lower Hood Canal Watershed Committee, Mason County Sheriff's Advisory Council, Sewer Advisory Committee and the Six-year Road Committee.

It is estimated the Chamber has sold over 240,000 oysters, nicknaming them 'Harry's World Famous Grilled Oysters.' But Harry wasn't done. In 2003, he worked with members of the North Mason Rotary to start 'The Taste of Hood Canal,' an annual Belfair event in downtown in August featuring classic cars, beer and wine tasting, local restaurants' specialties, live music and food booths, including 'Harry's World Famous Grilled Oysters.' Harry was instrumental in bringing a state licensing agency to Belfair which is located in the Chamber of Commerce office. Lt. Governor Brad Owen once referred to Harry as 'Mr. Belfair'. One of Harry's most cherished legacies was donating his father's semi-pro baseball uniform to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. In 2005, Harry visited Cooperstown and was rewarded with a tour of the facility including the vaults which held baseballs' most treasured artifacts. Harry's wife, Jane, passed away in August 2010.

Russell Bernard Juckett Sr. ("Russ"), age 97, a lifelong resident of Skagit County, died on March 31, 2011 after living a long and fulfilled life., He was born November 29, 1913 in Winters, California to Harrison Haight and Ada (Sonnichsen) Haight., His dad was a horse wrangler in northern California. This probably accounts for his love of John Wayne movies which he had a collection of over 150. His father and mother divorced and his mother remarried Roy Juckett and the family moved to Hot Springs, South Dakota (Black Hills) where he ran an automobile agency. The family which now included William (brother) and Elyse (sister) moved to Kelso, Washington in 1924., Russ graduated from Burlington High School in 1932 after he moved into his maternal grandmother Wamsley's home in Burlington, Washington., Russ joined the National Guard in 1931 and entered the US Army stationed at Fort Warden in 1940., He married Alice Muriel Barbo on July 6, 1940 after courting her in the Strawberry Fields of Skagit Valley. They married soon after she graduated from Mount Vernon High School. They had two sons, Ronald Juckett who died several months after birth and Russ Juckett Jr. who lives in Everett, Washington with his wife, Jennifer., Russ attended Dry Cleaning school in the mid 1930's working in Mount Vernon, Washington before completing his officer training school at Fort Knox, Kentucky. He was assigned in the Spring of 1943 to the 702 Tank Battalion and he left for Europe. His unit arrived at the Normandy Beach after the first invasion occurring the prior month. He was a part of General Patton's "Red Devils" and earned a, medal for his contribution at the Battle of the Bulge. He returned home a Captain relieved from active duty due to a physical disability. He recuperated for a year in Denver at Fitz Simmons Hospital., Once home from the war, Russ bought and sold military hardware and rolling stock in Mount Vernon as well as using his army "duck" to rescue farm animals in the Skagit flats when the valley flooded along the Nookachamps during the early 50's., Over his career, Russ worked in the Valley for Nate Johnson Desoto, Les Peck, Dependable Motors, Van Dynes, Riverside Dodge, Jack Gubrud Chrysler, Bill McDowell Chrysler and retired at Hinton Oldsmobile in 1980. Also, he had his own business, Engine Specialties. His love for the automobile was captured in his restored 1937 V-12 Cadillac Town car. There was the 1906 Franklin Model G 4 cylinder he found in a La Conner barn which he traded for a 1929 Franklin with rumble seat and ooga horn. He restored a 1968 Karmin Ghia in which he substituted a Porsche engine to add some "getty up"., Russ' love of mechanics could only be compared to his love of the 2nd Amendment and the Right to Bear Arms. He was an outstanding rifleman who earned numerous awards not only for his restored automobiles but for his marksmanship. He shot competitively big and small bore rifles. He was a pistol shooter and felt with less than perfect vision he would try his hand at competitive shotgun matches. 100 is a perfect score which he did periodically. However, it was quite unusual and impressive when at the age of 90 he shot 90 clay birds matching his age!, Russ and his wife Alice loved to go on trips visiting wonders of the world such as the Great Wall of China. They stayed closer to home as they shared 70 years together. Hawaii was always a favorite destination and retreat for them both., Russ is remembered for a great sense of humor, listening to classical musical (he played the piano) while reading about the civil war in his music room., He was a lifetime member of the NRA, Moose, Elks American Legion,, and Mount Vernon Men's Garden Club., Additionally, he will be remembered at Skagit Valley College where he monitored several history classes when he was in his 90's. A favorite professor once wrote to Russ that he was a model to them all with his continued curiosity., Russ leaves behind his wife, Alice of Mount Vernon; his half sister, Elyse Mogden Meyer of Port Angeles, Washington, their families and his predeceased half sisters, Dorothy Pakledinaz and June Wightman and their families., He is survived by 4 grandchildren, Lyle Bo Juckett, Mount Vernon, Washington, Stacy Juckett Chesnutt, Nova Scotia, Canada, Lorie Juckett, Santa Monica, California and Paige Schmelzer, Camano Island, Washington., The family wishes to express love and gratitude for all of Russ' friends who remember and have fond memories of his life. A special thanks to Isabel Hernandez and her caregivers at My Joyas who gave him extraordinary loving care and also Amy, Laurie, Kenda, Anneliese, Sue and Linda of Visiting Angels and to Hospice of the Northwest., In lieu of flowers any memorials may be made in Russell Bernard Juckett Sr.'s name to the charity of your choice., A celebration of life and memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on 04/11/11 at Hawthorne Funeral Home. Military honors will be provided at that time with a reception following. There will be a private interment., Please share your thoughts of Russ and sign the online guest register at, Arrangements are under the care of Hawthorne Funeral Home, Mount Vernon, Washington 98273.

Richard was much beloved by his family, as well as the mountains, waters and islands he loved in-turn and spent his life among. Richard was a field geologist of the old school, who walked and touched directly the terrain he sought to understand. The science of his profession informed his spirituality: he believed in the relative insignificance of humankind and was comforted by this. His church was a high mountain meadow more than any cathedral. He was a backpacker, mountaineer, Scout leader, sailor and leader in professional societies, and utterly devoted to his wife of 60 years. He lived a life of love, joy and unfailing optimism, the force of which will buoy those who loved him always.

Robert Hardy Barnes M.D.

Robert Hardy BARNES, MD The death of Bob Barnes on March 29th has left his family & friends reminiscing & celebrating 91 years of a life worth remembering & honoring. Bob was born in Richmond, Virginia on December 25th, 1919 to Eva Agner & Robert Hardy Barnes, Sr. When he was only ten years old his family suffered a terrible tragedy. A pact of secrecy was made, which ultimately affected every aspect of his life. In his early years, Bob's precociousness, hard work & personality helped him excel. He was an Eagle Scout at 13. He graduated from high school at 16 & was accepted as a cadet at the Virginia Military Institute. At 20, he began studying medicine at the Medical College of Virginia. In 1943 he moved to Seattle for an internship at Virginia Mason Hospital but his residency was delayed due to World War II. Because of his military & medical training, Bob served with the US Army Medical Corps as a psychiatrist, treating soldiers returning from combat. Following the War, he returned to Seattle & completed his residency. In 1948, he met, wooed & married June Yeakel, all within the span of six months. Their love story continued for 57 years until June's death in 2005. Like many doctors of his generation, Bob set up a private practice & also made house calls to those in need, never asking for an insurance card before treating his patients. He was a healer who loved his work. He also became a pioneer in the field of quality assurance of medical care in hospitals & was recognized nationally for his vision. When he learned about Hospice, he was one of the practitioners who helped introduce it to Seattle. It was in his 70th year that Bob's life took a dramatic change. He began an intense training course in Clinical Pastoral Education, wanting to become a spiritual guide to patients with a special emphasis in ministering to the dying & their families. At a retreat, each person was asked to tell their life story & for the first time Bob confronted & revealed his shameful family secret: his father had committed suicide during the Great Depression. The burden of this secret was finally released. By facing his own loss, he became a more whole human being who worked, suffered, loved & grieved with the people he served. He also wrote a powerful memoir entitled The Good Doctor Is Naked: Finding the Human Beneath My Mask. In spite of, or perhaps because of his early tragedy, Bob Barnes' life was rich with family, friends, travels & an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He was a prankster, reveling in his own childishness. He loved to dance & play his harmonica & make people laugh. His passion for fun was legendary. His family includes his daughters: Julie Barnes Morrison (Bob); Debbie Barnes Blethen (Marc Dijulio) & Tucker Barnes; his grandchildren: Kerry Blethen Quinn (Rafe); Sara Barnes; Andrew Morrison (Christine) & Courtney Blethen Riffkin (Jay) and two great grandchildren; his sister: Sally Moore Link & his dear friend Michele Edelman, with whom he shared joy & love his last five years. Our family is grateful for the love & attention of all of his caregivers this past year, including his Hospice nurse from Swedish Visiting Nurse Services. Donations in Bob's memory might be given to this organization or to any Hospice group of your choice. A service honoring & celebrating Bob Barnes life will be held atSt. Mark's Cathedral in Seattle on April 15th at 2:00 p.m.
