She attended Chapman College before marrying Robert Bruce Savory on June 13, 1941 at the Wee Kirk O'The Heather in Glendale. They had become sweethearts at John Marshall High School, where Bruce sat behind Edna May in English class and pulled her auburn curls., After the War and Bruce's Navy duty, Edna May and Bruce moved back to L.A. and bought a house on Airlane Avenue, where jets now land at LAX. Edna May took pride in each house that she and Bruce made into a home for their three daughters. She drove them to school and to ballet lessons in her green 1961 Comet and made the best potato salad in the world., When the girls left the nest, Edna May and Bruce signed up for night-school French. This ultimately led to twelve trips to Europe, each of them meticulously planned by Edna May, the original budget traveler. Edna May researched her English ancestors on these journeys, filling in the family tree without the aid of computer databases., Upon Bruce's retirement in 1979, they moved to Washington state, where two daughters were living, and started a new life in Snohomish county. They were honored for their part in establishing the Lake Stevens Historical Museum. While Bruce restored old photos, Edna May cataloged donations and absorbed local history. As Bruce's health began to fail, they moved from their Mill Creek home to Merrill Gardens. After they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, 52 years of diabetes finally took their toll on Bruce, despite Edna May's devoted care. Bruce passed on in 2002. Edna May continued on at Merrill Gardens, where she was admired for her pretty clothes and her interesting conversation.

Roger Denton Thayer

Roger Denton THAYER Roger "Rod" Thayer passed away on April 10, 2011 at the age of 76 after a long and valiant battle with cancer, outliving all of his doctors' expectations. Born on May 2, 1934 in San Jose, CA to Merritt Denton Thayer and Eunice Margarete Thayer (Quien). Roger lived in Edmonds, Washington for the last 45 years of his life. He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Sharon, his sisters Marilyn Thayer and Patricia Merrill, his sons Brad and Christopher Thayer, as well as two grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Roger split his early life between Seattle and the Oakland, California area. As a young man he lived in the Montlake neighborhood in Seattle, and at the age of 6 used to sneak into UW football games at halftime. Joining the Boy Scouts helped foster a love of the outdoors at an early age. He attended high school in Oakland and was the president of the Toppers high school fraternity. Later, he studied Forestry at Lassen Community College in Susanville, California, where he was the student body president and football team captain. Roger always enjoyed working with children, and he dedicated much of his life to working with young people who came from troubled backgrounds. For over 30 years he worked at Ryther Child Center in Seattle as a social worker and counselor. Roger often took a group of kids from Ryther to a lake in the Cascades for weeklong camping trips. Other than his family, Roger's two main loves were the outdoors, including the family cabin, and UW athletics. The cabin was his happy place - he was known for his "tarzan" yell when he jumped into the Cooper River's icy cold waters - and he considered the outdoors and the beauty of nature as his church where he found peace and contentment. He was passionate about Husky sports, often saying that he "bled purple and gold," and he was a football season ticket holder for decades. In addition, he thoroughly enjoyed gardening, often puttering in his yard for hours and actively participating in the Seattle Rhododendron Society. Roger was outgoing and gregarious and always had a joke or a kind word at the ready. A sweet and caring man, he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He passed peacefully in his bed at home with his loving wife at his side. A private memorial service will be held this summer at the family cabin. Donations may be made in his memory to the Sierra Club, and friends may sign his guestbook at
