Obituary Condolences

E. Gene TRENEER Everett Gene Treneer, 88, passed away October 7, 2011 in Seattle, Washington. Gene was the youngest of 6 children born to William Mylor Treneer and Mary Smith Self on July 13, 1923 in Yakima, Washington. Gene attended Yakima High School where he met the love of his life, Darleen. They both graduated in 1942 and attended the University of Washington. Gene pledged Kappa Sigma and studied Chinese and foreign trade. The rise of Mao Tse Tung closed off China trade so Gene and Darleen returned to Yakima where they were married in 1947. They had two children in Yakima and returned to Seattle in 1955 so Gene could study to be a CPA. He earned his CPA certificate in 1957 and worked for Price Waterhouse in Seattle. In 1964, he moved to the Trust Department of People's National Bank. In 1969, he was made Vice President and Trust Officer, a capacity in which he served until his retirement in 1989. Gene and Darleen travelled extensively in Europe after their retirement. Gene taught himself French and they would spend 6 to 8 weeks at a time driving throughout the countrysides of France, Spain, Germany, Italy, England, Portugal and Czechoslovakia. Gene was an avid table tennis player and a 30 year member of the U.S. Table Tennis Association. Gene was a familiar figure at the tables at Seattle University, Green Lake and the Washington Table Tennis Center in Bellevue. Gene was preceded in death by his siblings Charles Treneer, Alvin Treneer, Bernice Watkins, Vera Amos and Helen Gladson. He leaves behind his beloved Darleen, his daughter Dede, his son Mylor, his grandson Jules, his granddaughter-in-law Romy, his great granddaughter Madeleine, his great grandson Mylor, numerous nieces and nephews and a host of friends. At his request there will be no service or memorial gathering. Remembrances can be made to the University of Washington Medicine Advancement Fund.
