Former Alaska resident Dorothe H. Livingston, 92, died Jan. 15, 2007, at Sunrise of Bellevue in Bellevue, Wash.
A memorial service celebrating her life will be Feb. 24 in Seattle, when all her family can be together.
Mrs. Livingston was born July 2, 1914, in Savannah, Ga. She married Carroll C. Livingston in Los Angeles on Sept. 23, 1936, and then moved to the Philippines.
Dorothe and Carroll were captured and interned by the invading Japanese army in 1941. They were held in the St. Thomas Prison Camp until June 1945, when they were liberated by the U.S. Marines. Repatriated to the U.S., they moved with their two sons to Sun Valley, Idaho, then to Tiatita, Mexico; Birmingham, Ala.; Las Vegas; and finally to Alaska, where during the next 20 years they lived in Point Barrow, Juneau and Anchorage.
After 56 years of marriage, Carroll died in Anchorage in March 1992. Dorothe moved to Sun Lakes, Ariz., for six years, then to Bellevue, Wash., where she lived close to family until her death.
"Besides being a wonderful wife and mother, Dorothe liked reading, decorating, playing bridge, traveling, and supporting the arts and symphony," her family wrote. "She was an outstanding seamstress and cook, and loved entertaining. Dorothe was very well known for her artistic talent with oil and watercolor paints. Over the years, she painted oil portraits of many friends, family and acquaintances, as well as paintings featuring the people, places and experiences she witnessed over her exciting years of travel and living in unique parts of the world, from the Philippines to the Alaskan Arctic and many places in between."
Survivors include her sons, Brock and wife Becky, and Carroll Jr. and Judy; grandchildren, Carrie, Brock Jr., Scott and wife Dawn, Jeff and wife Cristy, and Dorianne and husband Ross; and great-grandchildren, Amy, Matthew, Anna and Tate.
The family suggests memorial contributions to the Alzheimer's Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Floor 17, Chicago, IL 60601-7633, or to the donor's favorite charity
