Peterson, Janice Lee - Seattle  
Janice Lee Peterson Janice entered this world, daughter of Grant and June Wood, at Seattle General Hospital on February 21, 1939. Janice suddenly departed this world in Seattle at Swedish Hospital on July 12, 2015, the cherished wife of Peter E. Peterson (Issaquah), beloved mother of their children: Peter G. Peterson (Seattle, wife, Kelley Reese), Heather A. Meier (Roslyn), Thor S. Peterson (Champaign, Ill) and Laura E. Peterson (Seattle, husband Brett Nagy), and grandmother to treasured grandchildren: Kassi Sobania (23, Issaquah, husband Rick), Karli Meier (16, Roslyn) and Reese Peterson (10, Seattle). In the weeks before her passing, Janice experienced a series of strokes which she fought with incredible grace, good humor and spirit, until she could fight no more. She passed away surrounded by her distraught and loving family. Janice began life as an engaging and adventuresome kid who joined her older sister, Sally (Winkel, husband Bob, Kingston), in many adventures and misadventures near their parents' home in the Richmond Highlands area north of Seattle, and later in their Green Lake neighborhood. Janice graduated from Lincoln High School in 1957 and attended the University of Washington, a member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. There, for a second time (they had been briefly introduced as teenagers years before) Janice met Pete. Janice Lee Wood and Peter E. Peterson married in Seattle on February 24, 1961. Janice's willingness to explore, discover and to be surprised by the unknown led her on many driving trips down the Baja Peninsula, through the British Isles, France and the countries of northern Europe, all with her husband, Pete, almost always without reservations, and often without fixed destinations. Janice came to enjoy the remote, wild and beautiful property she and Pete acquired in 1968 on the Colville Reservation, along the shores of Lake Roosevelt. For many years Janice would make the pine forested, wilderness camp a fun and comfortable vacation "home" for her family. When walls and windows were wanted as vacation amenities, Janice and Pete had their beach cabin on Camano for gatherings of family, extended family and of friends. Her energy seemed boundless and her cheerful efficiency made work appear effortless, especially when the couple purchased a burnt-out hulk of a home on Tiger Mountain near Issaquah in 1974. With the house being set to right largely by her labors, Christmases on Tiger Mountain were events to behold, produced almost solely by Janice and immensely enjoyed by family and friends. Janice was an avid recreational athlete; for years she enjoyed tennis and later, golf, with many treasured and ever expanding circles of friends, including the "Klutzes," the "Snohomish Couples," her "Girl Friends," and the annual Solvang golf sojourns with Canadian "snowbird' friends, among others. Old friendships were continued and new bonds built. And so, Janice's friendships endured, and some of the longest of these were among of the "New Year's Gang," surpassing five decades and encompassing Janice's entire adult life. That it was so was no wonder; Janice's smile would light up a room. If you met her measure of character, no other criteria mattered; her love and friendship was for a lifetime. People of all ages responded to her friendship and constant cheer, even to her last, most difficult days when her smiles, courage and good humor captivated her final caregivers. So it is that friends of her children came to call her "Mom" and those of her grandchildren, "Grandma Janice." Even her more casual acquaintances were moved to describe Janice as classy, kindest, sweetest, dearest, beautiful, inspirational, and accepting. But the often repeated comment, "Janice was the first one to make me feel welcome," says the most. All said and done, though, Janice's love of family and her family's love for her surpassed all else. She tirelessly cared for her own children and her extended family. Each of her children has a story about how Mom used her miraculous sixth sense to know what they were doing, in the act of them doing it. And with husband Pete, Janice could articulate his thoughts while he was still in the process of thinking them. For these and countless other reasons, Janice will be deeply missed by family and friends alike. A celebration of Janice's life will be held on September 12. Details of the event, a guestbook for remembrances, and other information can be found at www.CelebratingJanice.com . There will be no funeral. In lieu of flowers, please consider gifts to the Pediatric Interim Care Center www.picc.net or other children's charity.

Piha, Victor S. - Seattle  
Victor S. Piha Dad passed away on the morning of July 22, 2015 just shy of his 92nd birthday. Victor was born on August 1, 1923 in Portland Oregon. He was the son of Samuel and Vida Piha, and older brother to Esther Kligerman and Morris Piha. Morris preceded Victor in death, which was a great loss for Victor. Victor recently resided at the Summit at First Hill, which is where Esther presently resides. This is where their youthful sibling relationship was rekindled. At the age of 18, Victor enlisted into the US Navy and served in the South Pacific during World War II. He was a medical corpsman; he served aboard the USS Doyan. In the latter part of his life he was very proud of his service to his country and his fellow sailors. Just a year ago, he traveled to Washington DC with his daughter on an Honor Flight Mission, where his service was acknowledged with many other WW II veterans. After being honorably discharged from the Navy, dad met the love of his life, our mom, Zelma Caston Piha. Mom passed away in November 1996, and Dad was left with a void in his life that was never fully filled. Mom and Dad were married for 49 years. Even though his memory lingered in his later life his ability to recall moments shared with mom were vivid and beautiful. Her soul was blended with his after her passing, which provided him with stamina to live a long blessed life. Victor worked in the seafood industry for over 50 years. He was a Vice President of Pacific Fish Company. He was a dedicated employee to the Alhadeff family, but especially enjoyed and appreciated his working relationship with Jerry Alhadeff. After retiring from Pacific Fish Company, Victor followed Jerry Alhadeff to Evergreen Floral for a few years of additional employment. Victor's family thanked Jerry for this transition since his clothing stopped smelling like fish and more like flowers. Victor finished his working career by helping with invoicing tasks at Morris Piha Real Estate Services. He stayed with his early morning routine by being the first to the office and the first to leave followed by a brisk morning walk along the shores of Lake Washington. Victor is survived by his daughter Marilyn Pallister (Garry) and son Stanley Piha (Valerie). He is also survived by grandchildren Ryan Danz, Jessica Piha, Vincent and Leisha Piha and Blaire Piha. Funeral services and burial will be held on Friday, July 24th at the Seattle Sephardic Brotherhood Cemetery located at 1230 North 167th Street, Shoreline, WA at 11:00 AM. Suggested donations in Victor's Memory may be made to the Kline Galland Home; the Stanley and Valerie Piha Young Leadership Award fund at Temple De Hirsh Sinai or the Puget Sound Honor Flight.
