Marcy Satterlee


Marcy Satterlee, 61, died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

Thom and Marcy Satterlee bought their home on Steelhead Drive in late 2012.

Marcy loved living near the river and was a passionate gardener who doted on her dahlias, and she was excited her 60-foot by 60-foot vegetable garden had just been rototilled, said sister-in-law Debbie Satterlee. "She was ready to can and sauce the summer away."

Thom grew up in Seattle. He joined the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, and suffered a disabling injury, said Debbie Satterlee. He was a leader of the Freedom County movement that sought to secede from Snohomish County in the late 1990s. A 1998 state Supreme Court ruling denied the claim.

He was happiest, Debbie Satterlee said, making Marcy happy.
