Naomi Ruth Baty, 85, of Anacortes, Washington died peacefully on Thursday, June 16, 2016. Naomi was born to Clarence Ralph Kuykendall and Minnie Jane (Welch) Kuykendall, in Blair Ok. She was raised on the family farm with her two brothers and two sisters. It was a hard childhood; however it forged a strong and loving family bond that lasted through all their years. She is survived by one sister, Vergie Toscano of Marysville WA. Naomi met and shortly thereafter married Leo J. Baty in 1951. They lived in Amarillo TX. There they reared two children, Larry W Williamson and a daughter, Donna J Baty. From Amarillo Texas to Los Gatos, CA in the late1950s to Bothell, WA ending in their final home in beautiful Skyline, Anacortes, WA. Leo's fearless and adventurous spirit and Naomi's complete trust and devotion brought them the happiness they worked hard for and deserved. Naomi's loyalty never faltered to Leo or to the children. She was a very meek and quiet woman but possessed an inner strength we never quite knew until her 16-year struggle with Alzheimer's and the loss of her dearest companion Leo. She had many varying interests and talents. Her photography skills left us many fantastic albums of nature and scenery. She knitted some of the most beautiful Afghans I've ever seen. Truly her quiet demeanor led most everyone to underestimate her. She was kind and loving but strong and steadfast. She is loved by all, and gravely missed. Love you and miss you Mom. Be at peace with Leo and God. Graveside Gathering is scheduled for June 28, 2016 at 11 a.m. in Fernhill Cemetery, Anacortes. WA. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, WA and the San Juan Islands. To share memories of Naomi, please sign the online guest register at

April 29, 1953 - May 31, 2016 Sherri Lillian Bryant was born on April 29, 1953 in Portland, Oregon, and peacefully went to be with her Savior at her home in Vancouver, Washington on May 31, 2016. She was 63. Sherri graduated from Washington High School in 1971 and continued her education to become an EKG technician at Bryman Medical Institute, thereafter, working at Providence Hospital in Portland. Once in Rainier, she volunteered her time to the Rainier Fire Department as part of the support staff. Later she worked at a St. Johns Hospital in Longview, Washington, as a part of the admitting staff in the E.R. and finished out her career as a tax preparer for H&R Block. On November 8, 1985, Sherri married her longtime love, Tony Bryant. They spent many years together in Rainier where she fully devoted herself to being a wife and mom. Later in life, Sherri and Tony lived primarily in Anacortes, Washington, and made frequent trips to their Vancouver home to visit family. Sherri enjoyed cooking, talking with anyone she met, sewing, blogging, gardening, tending to her beloved animals, and studying the Bible. On Fridays, you would find Sherri thrift store shopping with Tony and visiting with folks in the stores. She was never in too much of a hurry to ask how strangers were, listen to their stories, offer a word of advice or a promise of a prayer and a "God Bless" upon leaving a store. Sherri lived to her dying day to shine God's light upon others. She would often say "Psalm 91!" when someone would leave her house. Sherri is survived by her husband, Tony, her mother, Margie Nicholson, sister, Michelle Nicholson, brother, Bob Nicholson, sons, Joel and John Cruz, daughter Kami McGladrey and 14 grandchildren. She loved intensely and will be profoundly missed, but we take comfort in knowing that she is truly home now. Sherri was laid to rest at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon at site 6B-1336.
