Edith (Hanna) Knutson was born January 14, 1919 and passed away April 23, 2015 at the age of 96 years. She leaves behind her children: Donald (Connie), Dennis (Helen), Joyce (aka Fern), Jonn (Linda), many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She joins in heaven her husband Clarence, parents Ethel and Roy Hanna, her siblings and her young daughter, Janice.
Edith enjoyed her life in many ways. She was a charter member of Cottage Lake Presbyterian church in Woodinville, Washington. She helped start the Mountain View Improvement Club and many other organizations in Woodinville. Since 1946 she and Clarence raised their children in the Woodinville area and maintained a 10-acre farm with many animals, gardens and an orchard.
She moved from Woodinville to Bellingham when her health began to fail at the age of 85. All her children remained in Washington and helped her as her health failed.
Edith enjoyed many hobbies: quilting, crocheting, embroidery and writing many letters to family and friends throughout the nation. Arthritis was what stopped her! She continued to appreciate family, friends and other people who came to visit her throughout her life.
May she rest in peace, her work is finished.
Much thanks and appreciation to those who cared for Edith’s needs during her 10 years at Highland Convalescent Care Home in Bellingham, Washington.
A memorial service will be at Cottage Lake Presbyterian Church in Woodinville on May 9 at 1:30 p.m. A private burial will be at a different time in Cedar Lawn Cemetery, Redmond, Washington.
