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 pursued 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, 1411 1st Avenue West, Seattle, WA 98109 (Queen Anne Hill). Please join us for a warm 'thank you' for Greg's presence in our lives. Please share your memories at or (greggardner website.)

Leslie L. Soper

After thirty years, to the day, Dorothy Soper was finally reunited with the love of her life. Les Soper, 89, a life long resident of Marysville, WA passed away quickly and peacefully on April 9, 2011 with his loving family by his side. He was born in the family home at Soper Hill Road on January 13, 1922 and was the son of Charles and Grace Soper., He grew up learning a rock solid work ethic and at the age of 14 drove the school bus for Marysville School as the last student on the route. He also worked with his father at the family mill and shingle business, which was located at Kruse Junction in north Marysville., Les joined the Navy during WWII as a Seaman First Class and served on the USS Petrof Bay as a member of the gun crew. During his service he helped make naval history in the South Pacific theater and participated in several famous battles including the landings of Iwo Jima, Okinawa and the second battle of the Philippines where the Petrof Bay barely escaped four suicide planes and several torpedo attacks. The ship remained the only escort carrier engaged in the battles to emerge unscathed., Les returned to Washington and met Dorothy Olson in a malt shop where she worked in Yakima during his training trips to the area. They started dating, eventually married in 1946 and shortly thereafter started a family., After the war Les worked for several local businesses before opening Les Soper Chevron in 1954 on the corner of 3rd and State in Marysville, and also drove a tow truck at night for Hammerly's Towing. In the early 1960's he moved the station to Grove and State and concurrently opened Soper Towing, which he owned and operated until retirement at the spry age of 82. He was known as an honest and hard working businessman, fixer of anything, loyal and generous friend and loving family man., Throughout life Les enjoyed the Annual Marysville Strawberry Parade as well as traveling to Montana and other local destinations in his Winnebago club, the San Juanderers. His passion in life and favorite time of year was the fall elk hunting season. He began the tradition in 1948 with his father and it has continued to present day with over sixty family members and friends traveling to the same camping site to hike and hunt the same draws as those who came before them. Those who knew Les knew him as a pioneer of Marysville, an icon in the community and an ElkDuck legend., Les is survived by his three children and their families, Leon and Leslie Soper, Linda and Tom St. Onge, and Patti and Dennis Roodzant; eight grandchildren, Aaron, Jessie, Anna, Charlie, Leon, Roger, Kaitlin and Vance; and three great- grandchildren, Novalee, Andrew and Lauren., He was preceded in death by his parents, Charlie and Grace; his wife, Dorothy; brother, Neil; and sister, Norma., Thank you to Pat Hartman and the aides at Compassionate Care in Marysville, Dory, Brenda, Pam and Nicole. We appreciate you taking care of our Dad as you would have cared for your own. You made his last few years comfortable and enjoyable., A memorial service for Les will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the Church of the Nazarene on 64th Street in Marysville., As a Life Member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, any kindness in Les's honor is greatly appreciated.

March 26, 1946– April 9, 2011




October 23, 1921, God sent one of his very special angels to make this world a more loving and caring place for 88 years. She always had only good things to say about anyone and did not listen to anything that was said bad because she believed love and helping each other would make the world a much better place. She taught her two sons (Lonnie Arney and Gerry E. Arney) to love everything on earth., She was very good with making many different arts and crafts of any kind., She was a member of the College of Regents Degree in, in Mount Vernon. She was also a member of the ELKS in Anacortes., During WWII she was a Three Plate Welder in the shipyards in Portland, OR and was very proud that she was listed as one of the top ten Welders and also had done some work on the USS Missouri. After the war she worked as a CPA Bookkeeper for a private business. Later she worked as a Motel Manager., She loved all types of life: plants and animals. She was truly blessed with life because anything she touched grew. She could take a plant that everyone said was dead and she would make it come back to life. She also had the magic touch to heal people that had small hurts or pains. It was truly a gift and she would tell you it was not her that did it but it was God that did it all. Her favorite show on TV was Dancing with the Stars., The world became a little dimmer on March 30, 2011 when God called her home to be by his side as one of this most loved Angels., She did not want any memorial service but asked that you love him or her everyday and try to help someone less fortunate. Loving and caring was her life., "God Bless by brother Lonnie Arney and myself for sending us this wonderful Angel to be our mother. I know that there is a lot more I could tell you about my mother, but right now it still hurts too much. So I will close in my mother's words of 'May God bless you and be sure to love everything and your loved ones everyday'."

Patricia "Colleen" Stafford

Patricia "Colleen" Stafford left us to be with her Heavenly Father on Monday April 11th after a courageous 30 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Colleen was born in Bellingham WA on December 13, 1951 and graduated from Bellingham High School in the class of 1970. Colleen lived a passionate and artistic life. She seemed to always be singing, especially songs from her favorite band, The Beatles. She had memorized and enjoyed every song they had ever written. Colleen loved to do anything athletic; however, dancing was by far her favorite activity, which she continued to enjoy even while rehabilitating in her wheelchair. In her prime, Colleen was the high school drill team captain, an avid skier, ice skater, horseback rider and was up for any challenge, including racquetball. Colleen had a photographic memory and could recite the license plates of all the cars she ever owned. She had a great recall of childhood memories and good times with family. Colleen had a great lust for life and was easily thrilled by fast cars, her '59 Ford and cruisin' at Birch Bay. She could make friends with anyone from the door-to-door salesman, the various religious visitors and even her last best friend at The Grace Home, who is 102 years old, who she sat and held hands with. Colleen also loved and was well loved by animals. She had many pets throughout her life that became part of her family including the strays that would come to visit her, often times finding they had made a new permanent home. Colleen was a beautiful person whose spirit was as bright as the sun that she so loved. She had a wonderful and unique sense of humor and was constantly thinking of practical jokes and pranks for the unsuspecting. Colleen was loving and giving and always volunteered to help others within her abilities. She continually overcame and defied the odds that were commonly stacked against her and her strong will and independence continued to amaze all who knew her. She will be greatly missed. She is survived by her loving parents Patricia and Lawrence O'Grady; sisters Jennifer Barnhart and Jane O'Grady; brothers Howard O'Grady (wife Lori), Edward O'Grady, Tom O'Grady (wife Grace); daughters Heather Elgie (husband Phillip) and Holly Stafford; grandson Christian Elgie; granddaughter Gracie Elgie; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Many thanks go out to all the people who work at South Campus Rehab, especially Diana Caswell, Grace Home and the Catholic Community Service care givers who made her last days happy ones. A graveside service will be held at the Nooksack Cemetery on Sunday 4/17/2011 at 1:00 P.M, followed by an open celebration of life at 3:00 P.M. at the Cedar Grove club house located at 4915 Samish Way.
