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

Even at such a young age he was gifted on the basketball court. When he was particularly proud of a move out on the court, out of nowhere, he would stop everything and give his parents a "salute". He was entertaining in so many ways, especially with his signature dance moves. Gavin wanted to be a police officer when he grew up, just like his daddy., Gavin is preceded in death by grandfathers, Herbert O'Bryant and David Peterman; aunt, Rhonda Perkins; and uncle, Dustin Henthorn.

Margery (Wilson) Kristin

Margery Wilson Kristin passed away on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at home in a peaceful manner consistent with the way she lived her life. Known by her family and friends as Midge or Margie, she was that rare persona these days, a Coeur d'Alene native., Born in Coeur d'Alene on April 6, 1920, she was the second daughter of Harold and Clemma (Acton) Wilson. The Wilsons had relocated to Coeur d'Alene from Plummer, Idaho after previously moving from their Missouri roots. Her parents operated Fort Grounds Grocery at 710 River Avenue. The family resided on the second floor of the business until Margery was five years old. Then, in 1925, they moved to a larger home, which her parents built in the Fort Grounds at 204 Military Drive. The Wilsons later moved to their final residence located in Hayden Lake in 1940. Her grandfather Wilson, who operated a grocery store in Plummer, Idaho, loving nicknamed her "Spud"., Margery idolized her father, who was a well-know businessman and investor in Kootenai County. One of his notable achievements was being a charter member of the Hayden Lake Country Club. Among his many real estate holdings was a building housing the Victor Apartments and Miller Café. That structure, located next to Lake Coeur d'Alene at Sherman and First Street, was later leased to Bob Templin who converted it to Templin's Hotel. Templin operated the hotel and restaurant concurrently with the North Shore Hotel, which occupied the adjacent property. Today, the original Victor locale serves as the site for the Coeur d'Alene Resort clock tower. The Wilson family sold the so-called Templin's property to Duane Hagadone in 1984, so he could incorporate it into his vision for the world class resort he developed on the former North Shore premises., Midge attended Coeur d'Alene public school before matriculating to the University of Idaho where she earned a degree in Home Economics in 1942, and enjoyed membership in the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Immediately after college, she worked briefly at her father's office until she was hired by the Buroker-Hicks Flying Service that trained Army pilots at Geiger Field (now Spokane International) during World War II. When they went out of business, she parlayed her education as a dietician to hire on as a baker in the test kitchen of Centennial Flour Mill in Spokane. Except for her time in Spokane with Centennial, Midge spent her entire life in Coeur d'Alene., She married George Kristin on November 17, 1945. George, a civil engineer from Iowa, had been stationed at Geiger Field while serving in the Army when they met. After marriage, she became a devoted homemaker and mother. Later, with her family grown, Midge was employed by the Kootenai Extension office prior to joining the Kootenai County Fair staff as Board Secretary and Premium Coordinator in 1976. She worked each "Fair Season", which usually runs from March through August, for more than 25 years. This position provided some of her happiest memories. And, in 1994, she even won a premium award for a knitted tablecloth she had entered in the competition. The Coeur d'Alene Press chronicled her Fair activities in a couple of articles published in 1997 and 2000., Midge's religious passion led her to an extraordinary commitment of time and energy while involved with Community United Methodist Church for several decades. Her son, Bill, once claimed that she was "busy running the Methodist Church". One of her most precious experiences was a trip to the Holy Land in 1984, with many friends. It proved to be enlightening and moving spiritually., She also enjoyed driving cancer patients to their appointments in Spokane for nine years before Kootenai Health had a cancer center to treat these patients, which she did with one of her dear friends, Betty McLain. That program was called "Road to Recovery". On many Saturdays she volunteered at La Crosse Health & Rehab Center until her own health precluded further participation. The kids at Children's Village knew her as "The Milk Lady" for her regular deliveries of milk for their delighted consumption. The Inland Northwest Blood Center, the Coeur d'Alene Press's "Christmas for All" annual holiday fund raiser, and the American Cancer Society were yet other beneficiaries of Margery's charitable endeavors., Deservedly, in 2001, Midge was recognized for her devotion to the community, especially for her chauffeuring of needy cancer patients to Spokane, when she was named the Vernone T. Lannen Public Health award winner for her contributions and dedication to the Panhandle Health District. She credited her parents for instilling her with a giving nature. Like her father, Midge preferred to function in a very understated and quiet manner as she conducted her involvement in community and personal activities. These efforts brought her great joy and she hoped that her contributions provided a positive influence to the organizations she served., In addition to her many community contributions, Midge enjoyed knitting, baking, swimming, biking, reading, and especially gardening with her daughter, Kay. Summer time spent with the family at their cabin in Sunset Bay on Hayden Lake provided many enjoyable occasions for her. Socializing with her many treasured friends provided innumerable hours of pleasure and generated an abundance of fond memories. Indeed, by her own account, she led a full and satisfying life., Interestingly, she claimed as one of her philosophies "the practice of life was best served if the left hand didn't always know what the right hand was doing". And, she believed that a smile can go a long way and help erase wrinkles, too. One of her favorite biblical verses includes the words, "and the wisdom to know the difference", to which she liked to add, "and the wisdom to keep my mouth shut"., Midge was preceded in death by her father in 1970, her mother in 1983, her husband, George in 1996, and her sister, Irene Schroeder in 2001. She is survived by two sons, Bill Kristin (wife Charlyn) and Keith Kristin (wife Sarah), both of Spokane, and her daughter, Kay Kristin of Coeur d'Alene. Additionally, she thoroughly loved her wonderful, very special five grandchildren and two great grandchildren, Mark Kristin (wife Heather and children, Sophia and Wilson) of Spokane, Staci Kristin (husband Chris Burke) of Portland, Shawna Kristin (husband Anders Hopperstead) of Vancouver, B.C., Ryan Kristin (wife Betsy) of Wilsonville, OR, and Lisa Kristin of Seattle. Other survivors include niece, Jill Williamson (husband Lee) of Hayden Lake; nephew, Tom Spear (wife Gloria) of Florida; and twin grandnieces, Julie (Rolfe) Grabowski and Joanne Rolfe of Coeur d'Alene., Please join the family in celebration of Midge's long, enjoyable, and worthwhile life 1:00 P.M. Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at the Yates Funeral Home, Coeur d'Alene Chapel. Burial will be in Forest Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made in Midge's name to the North Idaho Fair Foundation, c/o Ron Ouren, Treasurer, 2823 Marceille Dr., Coeur d'Alene, ID 8315 or Hospice of North Idaho, 9493 N. Government Way, Hayden, ID 83835. You may visit Midge's online memorial and sign her guestbook at

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.
