Anton “Pink” Marty, 94 of Duvall, WA., passed away July 6th, 2019 at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland, WA. 
He was born July 27th, 1924 in Auburn, WA. to Anton Sr. and Marie (Kaelin) Marty.  At the age of 5 he moved with his family to the current homestead in Duvall where he, his parents and brothers helped build a dairy farm.
On March 18th, 1944 he married Dorothy Sorensen of Monroe, his beloved wife for the past 75 years.  In 1948 they purchased the farm where they raised their family and had many gatherings over the years to enjoy Dad’s famous Swiss Macs. 
After retirement in the late 70’s, they took many trips in their motor home with family and friends, with much of that time centered around Dad’s favorite pastimes of fishing, crabbing and clamming.  Oh, how he loved to watch Mom clean those clams!
In August of 1998, they fulfilled their lifelong dream of traveling with family to his father’s birthplace in Morschach, Switzerland to enjoy a family reunion with more than 50 members of the Marty family.
Dad truly enjoyed time spent with family and friends, and commented at their 50th wedding anniversary, “I raised a lot of corn and I raised a lot of peas, but the best crop I ever raised were my kids.”
He was a member of the Senior Center in both Monroe and Carnation, a charter member of the Monroe Eagles Club, Washington State Dairymen’s Association member and lifelong member of the Monroe Swiss Club where his parents were founding members.
He is survived by his wife Dorothy, children Mike (Marilyn) of Duvall, Larry (Kathy deceased) of Snohomish, Darlene Thorpe (Brian) of Monroe, Deb Lawson (Tom) of Duvall and Roger (Patti) of Groveland, FL.  He is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.  He was preceded in death by his son Walter, parents Anton Sr. and Marie, brothers Vic and Frank, daughter-in-law Kathy and Vern.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, July 25th at the Monroe Swiss Hall, 18500 Tualco Rd. Monroe.   The open house will be from 5-8 pm with a tribute at 6:30 pm.  Memorials can be made to the Monroe Swiss Club at PO Box 413, Duvall, WA.  98019.

Charlene Rae Short, 69, was taken by the Lord suddenly on May 29, 2019.  She is survived by her loving husband, Steve of almost 50 years, 5 children, 15 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.  She was born and raised in Wilbur, WA where she met her husband.   Charlene was a resident of Carnation since 1980 and she operated Morning Star Daycare out of her home for several years.  She attended Western Washington University and the University of Washington.  She raised 5 children and finished her college education after the age of 40.  Charlene earned her teaching degree and taught in the Riverview School District for over 25 years.  Needless to say, she touched many lives and spared no one her sincere care and attention.
Charlene was an incredible loving wife, mother, grandmother and a true friend to many.  Most importantly, she was beloved of God.  In His merciful wisdom, He swept Charlene’s spirit off this earth without a moment’s notice.  Charlene dedicated her life to serving others and being a true warrior for our Savior Jesus Christ as she served along with her husband as a pastor in the church.  She has been described as brave, caring, energetic, fun, smart and above all capable of showing sincere love to others.  We will truly miss our beloved Charlene, but we are comforted by the fact that she is so happy to be in the Glory of God and He is so glad to have her.
Service was held for Charlene’s life on Saturday, June 22 at McDonald Park.

Nadine will also be greatly missed by her many friends, co-workers and neighbors. One co-worker described her as “a unique and beautiful soul. . . not a day went by that she was not talked of with nothing but admiration and love.”
From a young age, Nadine had a passion for house and garden decorating and design. She brought to life the vision for their current home and was continually designing and redesigning their surrounding gardens.
Nadine attended Capuchino High School in the San Francisco Bay area. She was briefly married to Harold Wood Huntley from 1982-84. Nadine found her true soul mate and the love of her life at age 42, when she met Barbara Garnish. They married in 2014 surrounded by friends and family.
Nadine’s professional career began in Silicon Valley at a printed circuit board manufacturer, Vantronic. She moved to the Seattle area in 1995 and started working for McCaw Cellular where she managed the installation of phones on airplanes. In 2002, Nadine joined AT&T where she served as a Vendor Manager and later a Technical Project Manager.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Nadine’s name to one of her favorite charities: PAWS or Homeward Pet. We wish Nadine a beautiful garden filled with love, listening, and peace.

Harry E. Mathewson, born January 16, 1924 in Wethersfield, Connecticut passed away May 23, 2019 at his residence in Woodinville, Washington. Harry is survived by his loving wife Julia T. Mathewson of 73 years; children: John & Jane Mathewson, Mary Kinsel-Eubank & Michael Eubank,  and Linda Beatty; 5 grandsons & 1 granddaughter; 10 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandson.
Harry served 30 years in the Navy and retired as a Master Chief Petty Officer. Harry and Julia retired to Woodinville, WA, where they built their home 50 years ago.
Harry lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed many family get-togethers, boating, clamming, and life in general. Harry’s life has often been characterized as one of service - 30 years in the Navy, active member of the Catholic Church, 45 years as a Knights of Columbus member serving as a Grand Knight twice, and recognized by the Knights of Columbus with the Family of the Year Award. Whenever anyone, whether family, friend or stranger needed help, Harry was always there. Ask any of the grandchildren about Grandpa Harry and you are in for long stories about pinnacle, fishing, hunting, boating, repairing things around the house or the many bicycles, wagons or toys that he helped them repair. They will tell you that if ever there were a true handyman, Harry was the man.
Rosary was held June 3, 2019  and services were held June 4, 2019 at St Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Church with Knights of Columbus honors.  Burial will be held at Holyrood Catholic Cemetery, Shoreline, WA with military honors.
Pall bearers are grandsons JW and Matt Beatty; James Kinsel, Michael and David Mathewson,  and great-grandson Michael Mathewson.
