Soukup, David M.  
November 29, 1961 - April 12, 2015 David Michael Soukup died serenely at home after battling cancer for thirty months. He was 53 years old. David was born in Ohio to Fred and Nancy Soukup. He spent his formative years in Spokane, Wa., before launching an adventure in 2002. He was a 13 year resident of San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye in the Caribbean country of Belize, the earthly paradise nicknamed La Isla Bonita. David graduated from Mead High School in 1981. After graduation David served his country in the Military branch of the Navy, stationed in Okinawa, Japan, where he and his wife Denise welcomed their daughter Tressa. David is survived by his wife Denise, his wife of 33 years, of Belize; daughter Tressa, son in law Brian, grandchildren Julian, Hawken and Violet, in Washington State; his parents; his siblings Karen, Mark, Jeff and Chris. Numerous nieces and nephews, as well as aunts and uncles; also lifelong school friend and honorary brother Mark Porter. David's strength of character shone while staring down cancer. With a lust for life and all things living, and knowing he had no possibility of holding off death, he exhibited an intense brand of willpower; using the strength of his own decisions to sculpt the landscape of his last days. He fought the battle without a shred of self-pity or remorse. His will to live was strong in spite of the cancer overtaking his body. He died in his "castle" smiling as he reached out to hold the hands of his wife and child; his last act on earth David has not left the world, it left him. He will be remembered as a loving husband and father; a generous spirit, a friend to many. His immediate and extended family will miss him dearly. He will never be forgotten. David's ashes will be spread in the Caribbean Sea, per his wishes, on his Birthday. A memorial service is planned for June 6th, in Spokane, from 2:00pm-5:00pm at 5225 N. Freya Road, Spokane, Wa., 99217, for those unable to make the trip to Belize.

DAVIS, Irene Margaret - Spokane  
DAVIS, Irene Margaret (Age 94) Irene Davis will be remembered for being a wonderful mother. She was devoted to her four children who were blessed to spend the last hours of her life on April 20, 2015, gathered around her in her home of nearly 60 years. That home was a welcoming place as Irene had the gift of hospitality and loved to cook. The Davis house was the place everyone gathered for holidays, birthdays, graduation parties and wedding receptions. Born Irene Margaret Reichert in Sandpoint, Idaho on October 19, 1920, she lived most of her life in Spokane and was a graduate of Lewis & Clark High School. She married Stuart V. Davis in 1942 and traveled with him as he completed his Army training before he left to serve in WWII. After the war they made their home in Spokane where they raised their four children. Irene was the quintessential homemaker. She was president of the PTA, a Girl Scout Leader, sewed clothes for her children, and was a great friend to the people in her neighborhood. She organized a monthly pinochle group consisting of twelve women that continued until the members were in their 80s. Later, although she had no work experience except helping her dad in his grocery store and working as a car hop after graduation, she purchased the lunch counter in the Bolero Bowling Alley and was amazingly successful. She served the "merchant lunch" of meat, potatoes, vegetable, roll and coffee for .78 cents. Through the years, she ran many small restaurants and retired after managing the lunch counter, Under the Clock, at the Crescent for thirteen years. After 52 years of marriage, Stu passed away and Irene independently managed her home for another 21 years. She enjoyed gardening, and the beauty of her yard caused people to stop and comment on her flowers. She was a life member of Beta Sigma Phi, having joined in 1973. She was an active, Torchbearer degree member of Alpha Mu Master. Her sisters in Beta remember her as a wonderful friend and a dear woman. Irene was preceded in death by her parents, husband and brothers. She is survived by her four children, Raeann (Gordon) Decker, Ginny Parker, Cap Davis and Rick (Dixie) Davis; ten grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers the family asks donations to be made, in memory of Irene, to Alpha Mu Master's service project: CASA PARTNERS, PO Box 8158, Spokane WA 99203-0158. Irene was a "can-do woman" who lived a full life and will be remembered fondly and deeply missed. A Celebration of Her Life will be held on Monday, May 4, 2015 at 1:00 pm. at First Presbyterian Church, 318 S Cedar Street, Spokane, WA 99201.

EDWARDS, Maxine Rose - Spokane Valley  
EDWARDS, Maxine Rose Passed away peacefully in Spokane Valley, WA on April 18, 2015, surrounded by her family. Maxine was born on November 27, 1921 in Oakesdale, WA to Cornelius and Catherine Merriman, the tenth of twelve children. Maxine grew up in Tekoa, WA and attended elementary school at Mount Saint Joseph Academy and Tekoa High School graduating in the class of 1939. After graduation, Maxine moved to Seattle and had several jobs, among them as a parking attendant in a large parking garage. She was a very good driver and continued to be so until age 90. She returned to Tekoa and married Robert (Bob) Edwards, her high school sweetheart, on February 3, 1945. They had three children, Barbara, Ron, and Diane. Maxine was a homemaker, a busy mother, and wonderful cook who made the best potato salad ever from her still-secret recipe. In 1954, the family moved to Spokane where Maxine spent many hours with her sisters and brothers who had also moved there. There were large holiday gatherings with a lot of love and laughter. Maxine and Bob enjoyed playing pinochle with friends, and especially with her sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Tick. Their card games were legendary, always with the women vs the men. Bob and Maxine spent their retirement years gardening, camping with friends, and enjoying their grandchildren. After Bob died in 2006, Maxine moved to Holman Gardens retirement home where she participated in many activities. She continued to play pinochle two nights a week, went on many group outings, played in Wii bowling tournaments, and made many new friends. She was always a very social person and loved by all. Maxine left a legacy that will live on forever in those she met and is now having the ultimate wine and cheese social with all her family and friends in heaven. Maxine was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Bob; her beloved daughter Barbara; sisters Marie, Frances, Katherine, Helen, and Dorothy; brothers John, Lawrence, Edward, Doe, Neal and George. Maxine will be missed by her son Ron (Irma) and their children Karen (Rick) Dotson and Chris Edwards; daughter Diane Worthington and her children Jennifer (Sulejman) Djuzel, Erik (Jennifer), Amber (Charles), and David Worthington; and by Barbara's children who were like her own, Anne (Todd) Gilligan, Aimee (Casey) Murphy, and Steve (Jaunna) Carlson. She also leaves fifteen great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews and countless friends. The family would like to thank the staff and all her friends at Holman Gardens, Dr. Daniel Dionne and his staff for their many years of care, the third floor and ICU nurses and staff at Valley Hospital who helped make Maxine's last days peaceful and pain free, and the staff at the Gardens Rehabilitation center for their care. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 A.M. On Saturday, May 30th at St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 503 N. Walnut Road, Spokane Valley, WA 99206.
