Anne Irene Martinis

Anne Martinis passed away peacefully, into the arms of our Lord, on April 22, 2006, at her home in Mukilteo, Washington, following her courageous two-year battle with cancer. Her husband, daughter, and granddaughter were at her side.
Anne was born on July 8, 1939, to Alice and William Sundvor, of Everett. She leaves her devoted husband of 45 years, Paul Vincent Martinis; three daughters and sons-in-law, Dr. Susan Martinis and Dr. Steven Blanke, Anne Marie and David Dibble, and Gina and Christopher Luscher. She enjoyed seven grandchildren, Steven, Danielle, and Mikayla Blanke, Madeline and Paul Dibble, and Mia and Noah Luscher. She is also survived by her mother, Alice Sundvor; sisters, Arlene Haggerty and Judy Wait; brother, William A Sundvor; as well as 14 nieces and nephews.
Anne graduated from Everett High School in 1957, and then attended the University of Washington and Western Washington University, where she earned her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Education. She took great pride in serving the community during her lengthy career with the Everett School District, by educating students and mentoring teachers. Prior to retirement in 1999, she served as the Planning Principal for the award-winning building project of Silver Firs Elementary School. Her career in education was marked by a number of distinctions and awards.
Anne was a member of the Immaculate Conception Parish and active in the Everett community where she lived most of her life. Spending time with family was Anne's greatest joy, and she loved traveling, golfing, shopping for presents for her friends and family and wintering in Palm Springs with her husband.
Anne was a devoted and loving wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt, and sister-in-law. She will be remembered as an extraordinary mentor who touched the lives of many teachers, parents, and students. She was also a loyal friend, whose kindness, thoughtfulness, and integrity will always be cherished by those who knew her.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m., Friday, April 28, at Evergreen Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, April, 29, at Immaculate Conception Church.
