Delores Lily Sutherland
Suds graduated from Stadium HS, Tacoma, WA, then earned her BS from UW. After teaching in Eatonville, then Stanwood, she began her years at Everett HS coaching women's tennis and basketball. She retired in 1984, then took up golfing and loved every minute of it.
She was predeceased by her parents, Hannes A. Sutherland, and Grace E. Clerget Sutherland.
She is survived by brother, Ed (Trudy) Sutherland; sister, Margaret (Sid Cone) Rickett; niece, Linda (Bill) Pixler; nephews, Glenn Rickett, Steve Sutherland and Mike Sutherland; as well as many cousins.
During the past few years Delores battled lymphoma. She was strong and wouldn't let it stop her from her favorite pastime - golf, as well as gardening, clamming and traveling to golf tournaments. Suds was blessed with many friends through coaching and golfing. She was well-known for her sportsmanship, her wit and unique personality.
A "Celebration of Life" will be held at 3:00 p.m. on April 6, 2013 at Legion Golf Course, Everett. Everyone is welcome. A family gathering will be held at a later date.
A special thank you to Laraine Taplin and Linda Miller for "being there" for Suds.
Delores, you are loved and will be deeply missed by many.
