Audrey June Wass
Audrey June Wass died peacefully on March 1, 2017 with her husband and sister at her side. She had been ill for several months from myelodysplastic syndrome and complications.
Audrey led an active life, running moguls and dodging trees on ski slopes from the Cascades and Rockies to the Alps. Her adventures included hiking cross country in the Cascades and trekking in Nepal and Peru. She traveled widely from Antarctica to India, and led hiking trips in Turkey. At home, she was an active gardener, cross country skier, climber and hiker. She enjoyed duplicate bridge for both its competitive challenges and social aspects.
Born April 17, 1935, Audrey grew up in Southwest Harbor, Maine. She attended Bates College and later moved to Portland, Oregon, then Seattle where she spent almost 40 years. She worked as an electron microscopist at the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center and University of Washington pathology department.
Audrey is survived by her husband Steve, sisters Pat and Janet and brothers Leighton and Stanley. A memorial gathering will be held later in the spring.
