Farmer, Andrew McKibbin  
Andrew McKibbin Farmer made his appearance on June 30th, 1930 in Palo Alto, CA and peacefully departed on May 14th in his Bellingham, WA home surrounded by family. After a brief and prank-filled run at Stanford University, Andrew built electrical substations for the City of Palo Alto before, as he says, "the competition between politics and job requirements dulled the eyes of callow youth" and he switched to a successful career selling, testing, and repairing traffic signal systems. Retirement removed him from the California Bay Area to Bellingham in 1996 where, surrounded by dachshunds, he indulged his life-long love of woodworking, reading, cooking, crossword puzzles, and keeping his family entertained. He is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years Florence Farmer, daughters Laurina Tucker, Wendy Fierro, Molly McKeown, and Chloe Farmer, and his brother Edward Farmer. He had 13 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Memorial service to be held Saturday, May 28th at Rome Community Bible Church at 3:30pm.

Fann, Lila Marie  
Lila Marie Fann January 17, 1937- May 12, 2016 Went to be with her heavenly father and her family Lila was born to John William Fann and Cora Viola Hill Fann at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane Wash. When she came home from the hospital there was a bad snow storm and she ended up riding in a covered sleigh pulled by a team of Percheron horses to her new home, where she met her brothers Ray and Virl. If you ever met Lila she would tell you about working in the hay and driving Ray's jeep. Lila was injured at birth and was never able to walk, so her dad made her a box and lined it good so she could be in the field with him or Ray. She always was in a wheel chair. She was really loved and was really special. Lila was predeceased by her mother, father, brothers Darley Daniel, Virl William, and Lyle Leroy Fann. She is survived by her brother Ray (Hallie), sister in law Delores Fann. Many nieces and nephews, Helen Rasmussin, Elvena Rickelts, Donnelly Rapin, Richard Chris, Raymond, Weley (Paula) Kenneth (Terry) Fann. Lila was a study volunteer and greeter at her church and she loved all the people there. We want to give a special thank you to her care givers. They were excellent and we appreciate everything they did for Lila. Any donations can be made to Hospice House, a wonderful place and helpful. Memorial services will be at Cornwall Church, June 2nd, 2016 at 1:00pm. Bring your comments. Visit www.molesfarewelltriubtes.com to share memories
