With thankful hearts to our multitude of loving and caring friends for standing beside us. Special thanks to Pastor Wolters and Paulette Huber for the beautiful memorial service; the County House staff and Hospice for their love and good care; to each of you who sent cards, memorials, and prayers, brought food to the house, and to all who in any way honored the memory of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather. Thank You, Gloria Krein Melissa, Michael and Marcus Krein Matthew and Maggie Anika and Chance Krein
Doug & Kathy Donner were happily wed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Reeder on June 23rd, 1962. The bride wore a beautiful gown that she borrowed from her sister Carol (who had gotten married just three weeks earlier!) The dashing groom carried his bride away from the church in a blue 1958 Plymouth Fury with a white hard top. Someone had written “Just Married” on the white hard top in black shoe polish, where it would remain forever. (Because you can’t remove black shoe polish from a white hard top.) The couple took it in stride, as they have all the ups and downs that have come their way in the past 6 decades. Only 1% of married couples make it to their 60th Anniversary. That’s 21,916 days of caring and compromise. But anyone who knows this fun pair are not surprised. Whether the crops come in or the market is up or down- in good health or heartbreaking loss, their devotion to each other and their sense of humor have been an inspiration to family and friends alike. We love you, and we wish you many more years together - forever enjoying that “just married” feeling.
I would like to extend an extremely heartfelt thank you to all of you during this most difficult time for myself and my family with the passing of my husband, Howard Gordon. There has been such an outpouring of love with cards, gifts, flowers, words, your presence, telephone calls and shoulders for me to cry on. It would take me a month to respond individually to the hundreds of cards, gifts, and flowers I have received. Some of you I do not even know or how to find you. This is truly a testament as to how Howard led his life and touched so many lives through his love of Christ. Howard had a genuine Christ-like love of people...and animals. Howard volunteered at House of Manna (his second family) and Oreo’s Animal Rescue for many years in addition to being a public servant in Seattle for 30 years. A Celebration of Life will be held in Seattle in August with Howard’s other second family, the King County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit. I would also like to extend a big thank you to the Dickinson Honor Guard, United Congressional Church (Pastor Janel Kolar), Dickinson United Methodist Church and Stevenson Funeral Home for all the love and compassion that went into sending Howard home to his Savior. This would not be complete if I did not mention Dr. Ralph Dunnigan and his compassion and love for Howard and myself. Howard will genuinely be missed by many. Especially by me.
Thank you for all of the prayers, cards, and acts of kindness. Thank you to the Dickinson Emergency Services, Doctors and Nurses at CHI St. Alexius Hospital. Thank you to Fr. William Ruelle at St. Patrick’s Church for the heartfelt service. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts from the Betty Ann Hurinenko Family.
