DE VRIES, FRIEDA  
Frieda De Vries, a long time Mount Vernon resident, passed away on Thursday, November 21 at the age of 94. Frieda was born in Urterp, Friesland, the Netherlands on April 23, 1920. She grew up on the family dairy farm. Her family moved several times as the lease on each farm would expire and a new farm would be leased. Being with friends and socializing were her special joys in life. World War II was a disruptive and unsettling time for her. When Canada liberated the Netherlands she was very happy. To her dying day she was very appreciative of the Allies and their contribution to the war effort. After WWII life began to return to normal. In 1946 she married Ralph De Vries and they began to dairy farm in Grouw, Friesland. During their time in the Netherlands three children were born: Shirley, Ray and John. In 1958, they realized there was no future in a farm with 12 cows and a horse, so the decision was made to immigrate to America. The family settled east of Los Angeles, California, which was a huge adjustment. In 1960, the family moved to west Mount Vernon and returned to dairy farming. Their daughter Annette was born soon after the move. Mount Vernon became home in America; Frieda felt comfortable with both the people and surrounding countryside. The De Vries family's Sunday tradition was to go to church and afterwards have homemade Dutch soup and buns for lunch. Often they invited farming friends to their house, or went to other farmers' homes to compare notes. Ralph and Frieda farmed their west Mount Vernon dairy farm for 20 years. In 1980 they retired and moved to the house next door where they lived until Ralph passed away in 1993. A year later Frieda moved to Heather Lane Christian Retirement Community where she enjoyed her many friends. When Frieda was no longer able to live on her own she moved to Lynden Manor, and then later to Among Friends in Lynden where she passed away. Frieda is survived by children: Shirley (Leonard) Vander Wekken, Ray (Becky) De Vries, John De Vries, And Annette (Dennis) Bosman; grandchildren Teresa and Emily Vander Wekken, Adam, Philip and Mark De Vries and Krista Bosman. A graveside service will be held o Tuesday, November 25 at 10:00 AM at Pleasant Ridge Cemetery in La Connor with a memorial service to follow at the First Christian Reformed Church in Mount Vernon at 11:30 AM. Memorials may be given to the Mount Vernon Christian School Greenhouse fund that was started by Frieda's husband Ralph. All services have been entrusted to Kern Funeral Home.

HOPPER, JAMES ALBERT  
In the early morning of November 11th, Jim Hopper broke free of bone cancer and diabetes. He left behind his wife, Lois, of 62 years; two daughters, Julie Knight and husband Scott and Susan Hopper; four sons Jim, Jon, Jeff, and Jerry and wife Kerry; four grandchildren Kate Knight, Doug Knight, Kylan Hopper, and Skye Hopper. Jim is also survived by his younger brother, Tom Hopper and his wife Marilyn, nephew Steve and nieces Connie and Peggy. A life long interest in photography allowed him to record the chapters of his life: high school track, three years in the US Coast Guard aboard the Falgout and Wachusette, his children's and grandchildren's participation in sports and graduations, and lots and lots of sunsets. Jim retired from Skagit State Bank after a lifetime in banking, which helped him with his other love - genealogy. Per his request, the family will join together for a private celebration of his life. Donations may be made in his honor to a charity for children's needs or the charity of your choice.
