Obituary Condolences

Josephine Ann (Pendras) ZELDENRUST Born October 21, 1934, in Bremerton, Washington; passed away November 10, 2009, at her home in Shoreline, Washington. Josie graduated from Bremerton High School in 1952, and the Columbus Hospital School of Nursing in 1955. She married her husband, Richard Zeldenrust, in 1957, and over the next four years, they had children Karen, Rich and John. After taking time out to raiseher family, Josie resumed her nursing career at Swedish Hospital in 1974, where she worked as a Registered Nurse for the next 30 years. Mom's door was open to her children at any time of the day or night. She listened to our problems, celebrated our victories, and gave us strength during tough times. No matter what we did, mom always loved, forgave, supported and defended us. She will live on through us always. Josie is survived by her husband, Richard, her daughter Karen, her sons Richard and John, her sisters Kathy and Sally, her brother Pete, and her eight grandchildren. We are grateful to the staff of Swedish Hospital, particularly Saul Rivkin, M.D., for the professional, compassionate care they gave Josie over the courseof her ten-year struggle with ovarian cancer.
