Laurene Alway "Sis"

Laurie, beloved wife of John, passed away on March 23, 2011.
She was born in Everett, WA on January 21, 1924 to William and Laura Seaberg and grew up in Everett. She graduated from Everett High School in 1941. In 1944, she graduated from Providence Hospital School of Nursing where she was a member of the Cadet Nursing Corps.
Just before graduation, she met the love of her life, John, and they married on May 1, 1944. They would have celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary on May 1 of this year.
Laurie worked for Dr. George Moore for most of her nursing career and got to know many Everett residents.
Family was extremely important to Laurie. She and John were very active in their daughter Chris' life, especially with the Skyline Vanguards Riding Club. Family outings to Birch Bay became Laurie's favorite vacation, with all the relatives sharing in.
When her grandchildren Jamie and Casey arrived, Laurie and John took an active part in their lives also.
In addition to John, Laurie is survived by her daughter, Chris Hayes; stepson, John Paris; granddaughter, Jamie (Ralph); grandson, Casey (Kim); great-grandchildren, Quinn and Eills; and her sister, Bille (Larry).
Her sister, Willa, preceded her in death.
At Laurie's request, there will be no funeral services. However, there will be a celebration of her life on Sunday, April 3, 2011 from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at 615 35th Street, Everett. All are invited.
The family would especially like to thank the staff on the 4th floor of Bethany at Pacific, both for their kind and compassionate care during the last three years of Laurie's life, and for their support when the end was near.
