Cleone, 89, passed away Sunday, July 8, 2012 after a sudden unexpected heart attack. She was born in Arlington, WA on February 6, 1923. Cleone was a lifelong resident of Everett and a graduate of Everett High School, Class of 1941 1/2. She enjoyed being an active member of her class reunion committee for many years.
Cleone began her early working life at the Everett Theater. She enjoyed reminiscing about her friends and had many fond memories - we still discussed those early years often with Mom. The majority of Cleone's working years was with the family owned business, Pratt Food Distributing Co. She was the bookkeeper by title but was the glue that kept the company running daily. Vendors and employees knew who the real boss was!
Upon retirement in 1989, Cleone became an active participant in her community. She was very involved with the Delta Neighborhood Association and was proud to represent them on the Council of Neighborhoods for eight years. Cleone was a lifetime member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Everett, in addition to being a member of Council #11 Degree of Pocahontas and the VFW
Cleone will be remembered for her kind, loving spirit. She was very family oriented - we cannot forget to mention her love for her beloved cats, Whitey and Smokey. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
Cleone is survived by her four daughters, Jeanine Thunder (Spencer), Shirley Laird (Don), Laurell Johnson (Larry), and Julie Rand (Joe); grandchildren, Angie Harbaugh (Jeff), Brett Laird (Gia), Lisa Wheatley (Troy), Matt Johnson, Loren Johnson, Angie Albin, Brian Rand, Steven Rand, Scott Thunder, Mark Thunder and Karen Marcum; great-grandchildren, Madisyn and Abigale Wheatley, Paige Harbaugh and Aidan Laird. Cleone enjoyed lifetime friendships with Billie King, Noreen D'Aoust and Eleanor Isaacson.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Gladys; and her husband of 57 years, Guy Eugene Pratt.
