Dohner, Alvin I. - Blaine  
Alvin Irwin Dohner 8/21/1915 - 11/16/14 Al Dohner, 99, died quietly in his Blaine home on Sunday, November 16. He was born in Peabody, Kansas to Ruth Hannah and Irwin Dohner, and grew up on family farms in Kansas, Arkansas and Colorado with his parents, two younger sisters and a brother. At an early age he milked cows, drove tractor and helped with daily chores. As a teenager he worked by his dad's side to help support the farm and family. Al told vivid stories of the depression, the Dust Bowl, riding the rails as a teenager and sitting with his grandfather in the choking dust that rolled over Colorado in the '1930s'. He asked that someone shoot him if he ever expressed a desire to return to the Plains. Al's family left Colorado in the mid-30's and settled in Marysville, WA. While working as a barber in Mt. Vernon in 1938, he met and married his lovely wife, Virginia Bossart. They moved to Blaine in 1939 and opened the first of 4 beauty shops they would own and operate. When America entered WWII, Al joined the Coast Guard. He narrowly missed being deployed to the Pacific Arena. He knew he was one of the lucky ones. Al and Virginia raised 4 children on a small family farm near Blaine, unanimously remembered as a great place to grow up. They worked hard but always found time for fun, laughter, skiing, camping, boating and fishing with their kids. In retirement they discovered the more carefree life of travel, golf and friends. They danced a million miles in their life together. Virginia died in 2007 at the age of 88. Al had a great smile and a hearty laugh. He was fun loving, generous and always willing to extend a helping hand. He is survived by four children and their spouses, Alana and Jeff Pfundt, Denny and Marie Dohner, Sheree Dohner and Charles Simmons, Scott and Peggy Dohner; 14 grandchildren; 40 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren. Our family would like to thank Michele Batchelor-Downard, Rosie Lewis, Cynthia Spencer and Steve Bishop. These caregivers, friends and neighbors helped make it possible for Al to remain at home. The four Dohner children would also like to acknowledge our wives/sister in laws for the countless meals, desserts, mochas, visits, conversations, and generous assistance to our parents. Thank you, Marie and Peggy. There will be a celebration of life at a later time.

Henson Jr., Walter Harrison - Bellingham  
Our beloved Uncle Dick passed away at 8:45 pm Wednesday, November 26, 2014. Marybeth, Tarmo, Laine and I (Nancy) were with him nearly constantly the previous 5 days; and he managed to speak with many of you during that time. Thus you should know that he passed away surrounded by our collective love. Thanksgiving was a perfect day to remember our remarkable Uncle. We all can remember the many times we spent together and the talks where he discussed his military background, work history, family memories, political events, investment strategies, or shared thoughts and dreams. We are thankful for the love he gladly shared with each of us, his family. We are so very thankful for the love he and Aunt Heljo shared and they never stopped reaching out to us, maintaining the continuity of family. In the coming days, when you have a moment, please email to nancyalberts@usa.net, any thoughts, memories, stories that you would like to share. I will combine them into a memorial document and resend to you all as group. Arrangements in the care of Moles Farewell Tributes in Bellingham.
