Deva Henrietta Huebner

My beautiful, bright, funny and talented Mother passed peacefully from this earth on May 12, 2011. The things she loved and shared will live in me forever; the love of music, art, humor... special gifts that I hold close.
Born on Alki in West Seattle in 1913, she and her mother made many trips to Seattle on the streetcar so she could play her violin at amateur hour at the Moore Theatre. Billed as "Deva and her Violin", she played from the time she was five years old and continued to play in her adult life in chamber music groups and with the Oakland Symphony.
While she lived in California for many years and raised her family there, her love for her beloved Alki remained and she returned there with her husband, Heinz, in 1976.
She was happiest biking along the beach wall or painting the beautiful view of the Sound from her home.
I will cherish her beautiful paintings, her violin and ukelele, her handwritten recipes in the funky blue file box... All the things she touched will be dear to me forever!

Though you have gone away... you are in my heart to stay!
I love you, Mom.
