Elvrum, Mary Louise  
Surrounded by family and a circle of love, Mary Louise (Wolven, Steadman) Elvrum passed away peacefully on April 18, 2015. She will forever be remembered in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Mary Louise was born on August 8, 1934, to Charles and Lucy Wolven in Everett, Washington. She spent most of her childhood in Everett, Washington, attending local schools. Mary graduated from Everett High School in 1952. She was ambitious and worked through most of her high school years. After high school, she moved to Seattle, Washington, where she worked in the office of a wholesale furniture store. While in Seattle, she modeled for a local agency. It was during her time at the furniture store that she met her first husband, John S. Steadman. It was 1953, John was in the U.S. Coast Guard, and the two fell in love and were married in Salem, Massachusetts, where he was stationed at the time. While in Massachusetts, they welcomed two sons, Jeffrey Stafford and Jerrold Stewart, beginning their family. They were then transferred to Newfoundland for a two-year tour, and while there, they welcomed their first daughter, Marcy Lynn. Another transfer brought them to Port Angeles for four years, where their youngest daughter, Marka Lee, was born. The family had one more transfer to Kodiak, Alaska, and while there experienced the big earthquake of 1964. The family was active with outdoor activities, including ice skating on the pond in the front of the house. Mary was always ready with lots for the kids to do and kept the active bunch busy. After their time in Alaska, the family moved back to Port Angeles, where they settled and made a home in the community. Mary worked outside the home in administrative roles to help support the family, which included Rayonier mill up until her retirement. She also continued her favorite activities, which included sewing, gardening and raising her family. She provided many activities, including art projects, cooking, camping and picnicking whenever possible around the area. Summer was filled with birthday parties, slip-and-slides, croquet and outings at Lake Sutherland, where they had property, and anything else she could come up with for the family to enjoy. John Steadman passed away in 1973. Mary met Darrell C. Elvrum, and they married in 1974. Both of Norwegian decent, they celebrated their heritages and enjoyed many similar interests. Making their home on Lake Sutherland for 33 years, they had some of the best times of their married life taking care of their property and creating a home together. They explored, had many adventures and traveled around the Northwest with their trailer to the many beaches and camping areas, including Lake Ozette. Dancing was another of their favorite activities together. Many a night was enjoyed at Aggies, and their favorite song was "Welcome to My World." They had many friends at and around the lake area and continued to make new friends no matter what they did or where they went. Generous of spirit, always ready to help others and to try a new recipe, she made every day an adventure and brought love and joy to everything she did. Mary was most fond of the Christmas holidays and spent a great deal of time decorating and hosting large gatherings for friends. Bub (Darrell) supported her in her creative endeavors, and together, they created many carvings and other pieces related to his Native American heritage. An amazing mother and wife, she taught us all much and sometimes even used words. We will do our best to carry on her legacy and pass on to our children and grandchildren the love for life, the outdoors and celebration of family. She will be sorely missed by all. In addition to her four children and four stepchildren, she is survived by grandchildren Jeremy, Joshua, Jennifer, Tricia, Marion and AniLa; and five great-grandchildren. Her wit and humor as well as her love of life will be missed by those who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362; or the American Cancer Society at www.americancancerfund.org .
