Hugh S. Ferguson

Hugh S. FERGUSON Hugh Sutherland Ferguson passed away March 21, 2011 at the age of 94 after a brief illness. Hugh was a true Seattle native and proud of it. Born August 15, 1916, to Ruth Schram Ferguson and George A. Ferguson in Seattle, he had deep roots in the Northwest. Ancestors include Territorial Governor Isaac Stevens and Seattle Business Pioneer John Schram. As a young girl, Hugh's mother Ruth witnessed the 1889 Seattle Fire. Hugh had fond memories of grow ing up on Capitol Hill with twin sister Ann and brother Jack. He graduated from Broadway High School where he lettered in golf - a lifelong passion. Summers were spent at Chevy Chase Inn on Discovery Bay where he devel oped a love for the outdoors - climbing the major peaks of the Olympics. Hugh attended the University of Washington (1936) where he affiliated with the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity (DKE) with whom he enjoyed a lifelong association. Life was an adventure for Hugh. Among the most formative was his 5 years of service as an officer in the US Army during WWII. He was stationed on Attu Island in the Aleutians and then Okinawa, where building airfields led to a 70-year construction career. In 1946, he married his beloved Jane Avery with whom he shared a 42- year partnership, enjoying a life of friends, family, and world trav el. Together they took great joy in the establishment of their beauti ful garden in Medina, a highlight of many garden tours, including 'Farmer Ferg's corn patch'. Their daughter Ellen was born in 1950, and as a close knit trio they shared a love of travel and nature, taking trips to distant lands and spending time at their cabin on Discovery Bay. One of Hugh's great legacies was the Ferguson Construction Co. Founded in 1948, the company specialized in commercial con struction, including warehouses, industrial parks and shopping centers throughout the Northwest and Alaska. He pioneered the use of tilt-up concrete construction design. Hugh stayed close to the company after selling it in the early 1980's and is proud of its continued contribution to the community. Following his 'retirement,' Hugh took great pleasure continuing his pursuits in land development, building an excellent collection of Alaskan and Northwest art, and becoming more fully en gaged in civic life. He loved his community and gave back in many ways. The Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation was estab lished in 1987 as a vehicle for the family to enjoy supporting many organizations throughout the Northwest - particularly those related to stewardship of the nat ural environment and its cultural heritage. The Ferguson family received Philanthropy North west's 2005 Top Philanthropic Family Award. Hugh made friends wherever he went, and some of his dearest are from the organizations he funded, whose regular lunches helped keep him in 'the game'. Hugh had a special relationship with the Burke Museum, as a founding board member and enthusiastic participant in many field trips, including dinosaur hunting, archaeological digs, and sailing the Northwest Coast. Hugh loved the natural environ ment and was a true adventurer. From stocking trout in Cascade lakes in the 1930's, to annual fly fishing float trips in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, to partici pating in the first 'civilian' excur sion to Antarctica in the 1970's, to a journey across the Sahara desert, he had an enormous curiosity about the world and en joyment of the people he met along the way. In his late 80's he completed a goal - circumnavi gating the North Pacific, visiting the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Aleutians, and the Alaskan Arctic. He was not just a traveler but a scholar of these parts of the world with a wonderful library to back this up. Hugh was the ultimate people person. He was a joiner and a doer. He was a founding member of Overlake Golf Course and enjoyed a million lunches at the Rainier Club, College Club, and Columbia Tower Club, to name a few. He is a long-time member of Seattle 4 Rotary Club. He thoroughly enjoyed 'cards' with his pals at Broadmoor Golf Club and Seattle Yacht Club in his later years. Many thanks to Hugh's team of Tara, Heidi, Jon, Ginny and Therese who enabled Hugh to continue enjoying his beautiful home and garden with his cat Scampi and to engage in work and community activities until his final days. Hugh's great zest for life, good humor, and gift of friendship will be sorely missed but warmly remembered. Hugh is preceded in death by his sister Ann Shoudy, brother Jack, and wife Jane. He is survived by daughter Ellen (Kumuda Kali), niece Janet Warford, grandniec es and nephew Andy Meucci (Mike), John Warford (Liv), Tori Yapp (Bob) and their children, and nieces and nephews across the country.

Jeanette Cook

Mom,, It's hard to believe it's been six years since you've been gone. I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was the worst day of our family's life. There has been so much that has happened. You have three beautiful great grandchildren, Cody, Audrey and Dylen. They are all so beautiful and special in their own ways. I can't help but think how different our family would be if you were still with us. One thing that I have learned since you've been gone is you were truly our rock, the glue that held this family together. We are trying so hard to carry on without you but, some days are just so hard. We all think about you everyday and wish you were still here with us. I remember when you used to tell your grandkids, Shawna, Lindsey, Tyler and Troy "I love you so much it hurts." We miss you so much it hurts.

Kathleen A. Abendroth

Kathleen A. ABENDROTH 20 August 1937 ~ 10 April 2011 Kathi's short, but valorous battle with cancer came to a sudden and unexpected end, although thankfully, quite peaceful was her passing. This was her second battle with the dreaded "C", having survived the previous seven years cancer free. Born in Seattle, WA unto John and Eleanor (Geary) Judkins. Kathi spent her childhood growing up on Sunset Hill, and graduated from Holy Angels High School in 1955. Also in 1955 she married her soul mate and love of her life, Ray "Ab" Abendroth. They would spend the next 56 years entwined, raising four children, then with an empty nest embarking on a journey of self exploration and adventure. Since 1960 they lived in a great home, with much history, in the heart of Ballard. Mom took great pride in her home and her yard, never failing to impress. Family gatherings always had that special touch and one could always find her out tinkering in her often highly complimented gardens. On a whim Kathi began researching her and Ray's family heritage about 30 years ago and impressively compiled a genealogical record that stretched back into the early 1600's. Her and Ray embarked on many trips across the U.S. and Europe to see new found relatives and friends and gather new family knowledge. She was the founder and originating president of the Judkins Family Assoc. What Kathi valued most was spending time with family and friends, she has touched all our hearts and will be deeply missed. We Love You! Kathi is preceded in death by her husband Ray, who passed only 4 weeks prior. They exchanged vows all those years ago to be together "until death do we part" and yet they were only apart for 27 days before being reunited. Soul mates they truly are, "together forever", they begin their new journey hand in hand. She is also preceded in death by her parents, John and Eleanor; her brother, J.J. and her sister, Maureen. Kathi is survived by her loving children, Ron, Don, Scott (Gloria), Susie (Kris); 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and cousins; last but not least is her pup "Cookie". Eternal rest grant unto her, O'Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May the soul of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 11:00a.m. at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church located @ 5816 15th Ave. N.W., Seattle, WA 98107. Reception following.

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.

Not one to sit idle, Phil enjoyed weekends with his family at his family's beloved Hood Canal cabin that he helped to build. In retirement, he was fulfilled with co-ed volleyball and softball. His softball team (the Bellevue Blues) bestowed him many awards, including 2010 Player of the Year. A fierce patriot, Phil volunteered many hours to the USO, assisting our men and women in uniform. His favorite hobbies included sports, live music and theater. It is difficult to say which attributes he will be most remembered by, because there were many, including: patriotism to his country, profound generosity, fierce loyalty, great love of family and friends, strong sense of humor and quick wit. Perhaps a quality that many will embrace, was his humility. Though he was a proud man, he did not wear his pride on his sleeve and lived his life modestly. Preceded in death by his parents and his wife Marianne of 47 years, Phil is survived by his brother Bernard, daughters Kyle, Lisa, and Nina and granddaughters Anna and Eva. There will be a private celebration of his life. Please make donations in his memory to the USO or Lions Club.
