Carolyn Alice (Wagner) Tomich

Carolyn Alice (Wagner) Tomich,

Renton, WA, passed away peacefully on June 27, 2017 at Highline Hospital in Burien, WA. Born on June 11, 1940, to Walter (Brick) Wagner and Dorothy Wagner (Nugent) and raised in Centralia, Washington, Carolyn met her future husband, Edwin James Tomich, (deceased, 2005) while she was in college at Washington State University and he was attending Idaho State University. They married and eventually moved to the Plateau in Issaquah, Washington, to raise their family. Carolyn enjoyed traveling, golfing, Dragon Boat racing, line dancing, family and friends, and trying new things. Carolyn and Ed especially enjoyed living in Indonesia for a time.

She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, teacher, travel agent, insurance agent, friend and eventually a happy retiree.

She is survived by her sister, Beverly Jean Wagner, of Renton, Washington, her daughter, Tracee, of Seattle, her son, Bryan, daughter-in-law Patricia, and granddaughter Rosalinda, of Normandy Park, and many other friends and extended family.

At her request, there will be no service or memorial. She didn't like to make a fuss in life, so it should surprise no one that she felt the same in death.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to her favorite cause, Team Survivor Northwest, 206-732-8350 or to a charity of your choice.

To Carolyn Tomich's Family, I so enjoyed Carolyn's sense of humor in Line Dance Class and at the coffee following our class. She was present with her ready smile and fun comments. I miss having her with us.

With sincere sympathy,

Dear Ones,

I had the joy of meeting Carolyn through the line dance group, as they met at Starbucks. She made a point of spending time with me and my infant grand daughter. I was so sad to hear of her illness and passing. She was loved and will be missed. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
