Obituary Condolences

Barbara Jean Brooke MATTY Barbara passed away on October 18th, 2010 in Seattle at Swedish Hospital after a ten year fight with pulmonary fibrosis. She was born May 4th, 1943 in Seattle. She is a graduate of Queen Anne High School class of 1961 and graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Psychology. Some people might say her blood ran purple and gold and she regularly attended husky football games for the last 25 years. She lived in the greater Seattle area most of her life but spent time living in Germany, India, Minnesota, and California. She worked as a realtor for the entirety of her professional career. Barbara was preceded in death by her mother Kathryn Marie Kienzle Brooke and father John Brooke. She is survived by two sons Christopher Duane Matty of Bellevue, Gregory Allen Matty of Kirkland, one daughter Marie Elaine Matty and one son outlaw Jason Marcus Dunham of Bainbridge Island, and her four grandchildren Matty May Dunham, Sarah Marie Dunham, Jack Gregory Matty and Nicholas Joseph Matty and her black lab Daisy. "Boppy" will be remembered most for her strength of character, firecracker disposition, smile and love of laughter, travel and good times but mostly for her dedication and love for her children and grandchildren. We love you too mom. The memorial service will be held on the 7th of November 2010 on Bainbridge Island from 11-4. Address: 7124 NE New Brooklyn Road Please call to RSVP at 206-842-9611.
