Marian Jean (Fruhling) Albright

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
5generation 1Marian Jean (Fruhling) Albright, a long time resident of Woodinville, passed away on August 2, 2018, at the age of 89. 
Marian had lived in Woodinville since 1942, when her parents John and Margie Fruhling bought a horse ranch on Avondale Road.
It was there that her father became a foundation breeder of Appaloosas, and where Marian became a great lover of all animals.
Marian raised Saint Bernard dogs in the 1960’s and she thoroughly enjoyed her companion Shi Tzu dogs over the years.  Marian lived a creative life of drawing, painting and gardening in her beautiful yard.  In the 1970’s she owned a ceramic shop named Hobby Haven in downtown Woodinville next to Molbaks.  It was there that she taught classes to the community and indulged in her great passion for ceramics. 
Marian and her husband of 66 years, Virgil M. Albright, (deceased 2014) created a rich and beautiful family life together.
Their home was a safe haven for many family members.  Full of humor, comfort, and good food.  Marian’s deep love for her family showed time and time again.  She was truly always there for them.  She was a wonderful wife, loving mother, tremendous grandmother and friend to many people and animals in her lifetime. 
Marian’s kind heart, creativity and witty sense of humor will be sorely missed by her daughter, Susan Nelson, son Tom Albright, son-in-law Pete Nelson, her grandchildren Stacy Albright, Troy Beachler, Jeff Albright, Devon Albright, and her great grandchildren Layne Otto, Vaughn McAuliffe, Ellie Madden, Theus Madden and Ceridwyn Albrechtenstoss.  The family would like to thank the staff at Redmond Care and Rehab for their fondness for Marian and caring for her the last 6 years of her life.
The family will hold a private ceremony.
