Marie Ellingsen Sundberg, November 20, 1920-July 31, 2017. Marie was born on Vashon Island, but lived most of her life in West Seattle. Services will be held Friday, August 11, beginning with a service at Tibbetts United Methodist Church, (3940 41st AVE SW, Seattle) at 11 AM, with cookies and coffee following. There will be a short burial service at Vashon Cemetery at about 2:45 (ferry dependent), followed by a gathering at Cheryl’s home. Please join us for any (or all) of the gatherings you are able to attend… as you know, she loved a party. Contact Cheryl or Nancy for more information. We’ll plan to catch the 1:40 ferry to Vashon, please car pool if possible.
If you choose to join us, please wear your brightest, most flowery clothes (in honor of her love of her garden), and wear your pearls (hers were always a part of her dressing up attire), if you have some. That includes men with Hawaiian type or just brightly colored shirts… no suits or ties! If you can, please bring along a few flowers from your garden as we all know those were her favorites. Suggested memorials can be made to Tibbetts United Methodist Church or Children’s Hospital, uncompensated fund.
