Erickson (Bruce) of Edmonds, and Patty Haskell of Seattle. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Edwin L. Haskell. Mom's family was her greatest joy and happiness. Mary was born in Seattle on April 18, 1921, the daughter of Richard and Margaret Abrams. She had two younger brothers, Richard and Robert, who have also passed away. Mary grew up in Bellingham where she graduated from Bellingham High. She attended the University of Washington and was a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority and Phi Beta Kappa Society. She raised her family in Everett and was active in PEO, Camp Fire Girls, Boy Scouts, Lady Lions, Book Club, and Everett High Boosters.

As her family grew and moved away from Everett, Mom and Dad traveled in Europe, on the east coast, and in Hawaii to visit their extended family. A memorial service and graveside ceremony will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank the dedicated caregivers at the Gold Autumn House and professional visiting staff from Group Health Hospice for providing mother with loving care during her final years.
