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

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.

The Greek word for "called" is 'Klaytos', meaning invited or appointed, a called saint. Keelin's immediate calling was in the kingdom of heaven at Jesus's feet. Revelation 21:5, "See, I have made all things new." We love you Keelin and will see you soon, Mom and Dad.

Mary Jean Ferris

FERRIS, Mary Jean, A lifetime resident of Spokane, died peacefully on April 1, 2011 at Sacred Heart Hospital. She is preceded in death by her late husband of 53 years as well as many beloved family members and lifelong friends. Mary Jean was born April 11, 1923 to Walter and Sara Etta Rosenberry in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho where she joined five older brothers and lived until her high school years. She attended Annie Wright in Tacoma through high school before enrolling and graduating from Mills College in Oakland, California. There she double-majored in government and history and developed many enduring friendships. After her graduation from Mills in 1945 and working in San Francisco for a major outdoor advertising firm, she returned to the Inland Northwest where she met her future and beloved husband Joel E. Ferris II at the wedding of mutual friends. They married in 1948 and together went on to raise five children. Over the years Mary Jean would often be found happily hosting both family and friends in their home and garden through dinner parties, birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings. Mary Jean also partnered with her husband as they established the very popular and long-standing gift and furniture business Joel. Mary Jean and Joel's career in retail not only allowed them to visit many cities, states, and other countries but also gave them the gift of many cherished and collaborative friendships. Mary Jean's keen interest in public service and politics led to her involvement with and leadership in many civic organizations including the Spokane Symphony; the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) where she served as docent and organized the Inland Northwest Timber Group; the Altar Guild of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist; and the Junior League of Spokane, where she served as president and later received the Sustainer of the Year award. Mary Jean is survived by her five children: Joel III (Sara White) of Spokane; Sara Margarethe of Spokane; Sam (Marianne) of Point Richmond, California; Toby of Spokane; and John (Nicole) of San Anselmo, California. Although Mary Jean had to wait until her 70's for grandchildren, she made up for lost time by giving much love to three grandchildren: Austin of Spokane and Isabel and Cecelia of San Anselmo, California. She also leaves behind many well-loved nieces, nephews, neighbors, and friends who will miss her laughter, stories, and conversations. At the request of Mary Jean, there will not be a service. Instead a celebration of her life, including her large family and friends, will be held at her home and garden on a warm spring day, specific time and date to be announced. Placement will be at the Columbarium at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist alongside her husband Joel. Her family is sure that Mary Jean is already sharing with Joel a long-overdue martini and telling the latest news to the numerous family and friends that have gone before her. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) or to Mills College Annual Fund.
