MORTENSEN, Marilynn Jewell  
MORTENSEN, Marilynn Jewell "Jensen" (Age 91) Marilynn was born April 1, 1924, in Opportunity, WA, to Aaron and Minnie Jensen, and passed away peacefully on April 14, 2015, the younger sister of Maxine Jensen. She was preceded in death by her parents; sister; husband, Norman Tom Mortensen; and son, Monte Norman Mortensen. Marilynn and Norman met during WWII, married and had three sons and eight grandchildren, Monte and Colleen Cariss (Hilary, Heather and Aaron); Jerry and Becky (Shelby, Shannon and Adam); and Tom and Susan (Bart and Erica) Mortensen. They were also blessed with 11 great-grandchildren. Travel to Utah, to visit relatives, and seeing parts of the country filled their retirement years; but there was no place like home on Willow Road and the cabin on Bottle Bay, that Norman built. Always proud to be a graduate (1942) / alumni of West Valley High School, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have continued the tradition as WV eagles too. Known to them as "Grandma Suze", Marilynn was happiest having all eight grandchildren at once to prepare for the holidays, play dress-up, work in the garden and play a mean game of pinochle or cribbage. Her time invested in her grandchildren created a solid bond between the eight that will remain strong and steady for many years to come. She was one of the kindest people you would ever know, loved her family unconditionally and made the best dinner rolls that no one has been able to match or figure out the recipe for. We will miss her so; her twinkle in those beautiful blue eyes and sense of humor that remained until her passing. For someone who had lost so much as her life was coming to an end in the later years; she gave so much to those who were privileged to know her. A special thanks to the staff of Colonial Courts, who provided care and friendship to our beloved Grandma Suze. There will be a graveside service at Pines Cemetery, 1402 S. Pines Rd., Spokane Valley, WA, in the mausoleum, on Saturday April 25, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.

NEWBOLD, Donald Morris  
NEWBOLD, Donald Morris (Age 89) Our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Don Newbold, passed away on April 11, 2015, to be received into a larger life by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Don came into this world on December 24, 1925, in Lebam, Washington. He was the son of Ida and Ammon Newbold. Don grew up in Willapa Valley, Washington, and was a loving son and helpmate to his mother in the midst of the great depression. Among his many adventures as a child, he cut cascara bark in the hills above the Willapa River and delivered newspapers before school to farms and logging camps with his beloved dog, Panda. Don had many childhood friendships that endured through the years. Don graduated from Willapa Valley High School in 1943, where he enjoyed playing sax in a jazz band called "Seinko's Syncopating Six". Upon graduation, he immediately enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and worked in the Kaiser shipyard in Vancouver, Washington, helping build "Baby Flat Tops" (aircraft carriers), awaiting his call to service in the Marine Corps. Don did his basic training in San Diego and became part of the 5th Marine Division that trained in Hawaii in 1944 and early 1945 for the assault on Iwo Jima in February, 1945.

After WWII, Don received a college education at Washington State University (WSU) through the GI Bill of Rights. He was a loyal "Coug". After graduating from WSU, Don returned to the Willapa Harbor area starting a career in insurance and met a beautiful young lady, Tempa Christine Testerman, who stole his heart. He and Christine were married in Raymond, Washington in 1950 and started their life together in Seattle, where Don pursued his career in insurance. His career led him to opportunities in Tacoma, Portland and ultimately in Olympia, where he purchased an insurance agency. Don was able to help many people through his chosen profession. He had a fabulous sense of humor and treated every person with whom he came in contact with respect and brought out the best in everyone. He loved life. Don is survived by his wife of 65 years, Christine Newbold, of Spokane Valley; sons, Mark (Judy) Newbold of Spokane, Matt (Val) Newbold of Kirkland, WA; grandchildren, Andrea (David) Knaggs of Spokane, Amy Newbold of Los Angeles, CA, Jake (Sarah) Newbold of Moscow, ID, Nerys Newbold of Seattle WA and Lacy Newbold of Bethel, Maine; and great-grandchildren, Joshua, Isabel, Bobby and Quinn Knaggs of Spokane, WA.
