Donna Lee Pauley

Donna Lee (Wilkerson) Pauley died on Friday, April 8, 2011. She was the beloved wife of Ralph E. Pauley who preceded her in death. Their gravestone is engraved with "Together Forever" which epitomizes their 59 years of marriage. Donna spent her life focusing on her family. They were the center of her universe. She spent years caring for a "handsome young army man." She wrote letters to him everyday for two years, six months, and three days as he spent time in occupied Germany and cared for him many other years, as they grew old together. She was the mother of two, Gayle D. Pauley - her daughter and Glenn A. Pauley - her son. She modeled the true behavior of a caring, loving mother and gave each of her children a love of family. She was the mother-in-law to Rosann and recognized John as part of her daughter's life. She was the grandmother of three, wonderful, talented grandchildren. Daniel, who learned from her the importance of keeping a promise; Vivian who learned that women should have a mind of their own and a heart to give to others; and Ray, who learned that words are not always needed to convey strength of character. She considered Patty Hoff as her Bellingham daughter, and thought of her family as if they were her own. She has a brother, Bill, and dear sister-in-law, Annette, still in Texas as well as many loved nephews and nieces. She was also the "BAND MOM" and touched hundreds of student's lives as they played in concerts, marched in parades; a teacher for students who learned English, checked out books, learned reading and mathematics in her classroom. She always said that she was a consumer of music - she listened as Ralph's bands played but she was also a musician in her own right, as she sang in her school choirs at White Deer High School and at Sul Ross College. But, most importantly, she always sang with her children, riding the millions of miles driving across Texas to get to family gatherings and ultimately on the move to Washington. Celebration of her life will be held on April 23, 2011, at 2 PM, at Moles Greenacres Funeral Home, followed by a gathering at the family home. She loved roses and birds and the family suggests that you feed the birds or plant a rosebush in her honor. Or, you may make a donation to the Ralph Pauley Scholarship Fund through the Bellingham Alumni Band. You may share your memories of Donna in the online guestbook at

Gregory "Greg" Gardner

Gregory (Greg) GARDNER 'Our relief from his suffering having ended remains unmatched by the pain of his absence" Gregory Dean Gardner, 60, slipped away too soon on March 10, 2011 after challenging cancer for more than 5 years. Held closely by his sister, Susan, dear friends and his Sally Cat, he joined his deceased parents, Robert and Aline Gardner, who embrace him with loving arms. Despite 25 years in San Diego, Greg's heart remained attached to his birthplace - Queen Anne Hill. He is a proud alumna of John Hay (favorite teacher - Miss Bell) and McClure Jr. High (most hated class - Woodshop). On to Queen Anne H.S. where sports bonded many 1969 grads into a still-active alumni to this day. Most continued to the U. of Washington where Greg pursed a degree in Justice and Society, minor in Psychology, affiliated with Phi Delta Theta fraternity. His University years further deepened friendships and his reverence for Husky football, Jim Owens and 2-platoon players of the 1950's and 60's. He settled in San Diego in 1985 working within the Criminal Justice system, i.e, Case Manager for federal parolees, individual and group Drug and Alcohol Counselor, and Pre-Sentence Investigator for Judges. His calm demeanor also drew him into arbitration and training. A bachelor, he had 'toys'...'66 Mustang, sports memorabilia, collectible LIFE magazines from '40's,' 50's,60's; unusual Hawaiian shirts and restored baseball jerseys - i.e., Willie Mays, whose integrity on/off the field was his inspiration in life. But Greg's real treasures were his life-long friendships and his wicked wit, written and spoken. How lucky to be a recipient of both. Love for childhood friends and family was fierce, unbroken. Laugh-filled phone calls, savored postcards, unexpected sports gifts are legendary - sadly missed now. Behind his easy smile and laconic speed was a man who 'showed' up to comfort, to celebrate, to share. John Varga, Jim Eicher, Marc & Greg Pease, Smitty, Mike O, Patrick, Larry Phillips were among his 'brothers'. His adoring sister, close 'brothers', and special women friends sustained him during his journey with cancer, having also taken his father in 2005. Never complaining, he took every option to extend his life; his suffering was unspeakable at times but he wanted to enjoy our company another day. He is survived by his heartbroken sister, Susan Gardner Lucier, and her partner, Walt; Sally Cat, the boss of his home....and many loving Uncles, Aunts and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Aline, and by high school classmate and college roommate, Mike Arch (April 5, 2010). Memorial Mass and Reception will begin at 11:00 a.m, this Saturday, April 16, 2011 at St. Anne Catholic Church, 2011 1st Ave. N., Seattle, WA 98109 (Queen Anne Hill).
