Kristine Anne Jensen, 47, of Normandy Park, Washington finally found peace on November 23, 2018 at home.

Kristine was born October 21, 1971, in Burien, Washington, to Loran Jensen and Karen (Jensen) Johnson. She graduated from Woodinville High School in 1990, and was preceded in death by her father Loran; grandparents, Elmer and Ellen Jensen and grandparents, Ross and Isabel Halterman.

Kristine’s life revolved around her cat, “Tigger” (a/k/a “Chicken Butt”) and she was a lover of all things “furry.” Kristine had a generous heart.  In her early adult years she was a compassionate caregiver for vulnerable adults and the elderly. She enjoyed listening to their life stories and ensuring that they were not alone. Recently a friend shared with us that Kristine often purchased and delivered food to the homeless.  

Kristine is survived by her mother, Karen Johnson;  daughter, Emily Anne Marie Harrington; Emily’s adoptive mother,  Jeanne Persoon; stepfather, Hal Johnson; stepmother, Susan Jensen; sisters, Kim (George) McDonald and Joelle (Mike) Spell; step-sister Mary (Steve) Solomon; nephews, Jon McDonald, Tyler Johnson, and Bryce Solomon; nieces, Michele McDonald, Amy Johnson, Grace Spell, Emma Spell; close family friends, Jan and George Wilson.
Kristine Anne Jensen, is loved and will be dearly missed by all. As we try to move forward without a daughter, sister, aunt, mother and friend , we pray for peace, for all of us and especially for those that struggle with depression and mental illness.

If you suffer from depression, feel alone or are thinking of suicide please reach out. You are loved and not alone.

David was born January 2, 1943, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Loran and Eva Mae “Mickey” Shipway. He reached eternal cruising altitude November 4, 2018, in Kirkland, Washington. He is survived by Linda, his  daughters Dawn (Michael), Heather (Dave), and Rebekka (Greco), his first granddaughter Maya, his second granddaughter, Stella Mae (due in January), and his sister Lynda. He was first a Packers fan, then a Seahawks fan, a Mariners fan, and an inaugural season-ticket holder for the MLS Sounders,.
David and his family moved to Roseburg, Oregon, in 1948, resided for a short time in Burien, Washington, and then settled down on Hollywood Hill in Woodinville in November of 1951. He attended Woodinville School, Anderson School (for one year) and Bothell High (receiving a diploma in 1961). David went from being a Cougar to being a Husky, graduating from the University of Washington in 1967 with a degree in Electrical Engineering.
David met Linda Presser at Anderson School in 1957 and they were married on August 14, 1964. 
He  was still a student at the University of Washington when he started working at Boeing (1965), retiring in 2001. While at Boeing, he was one of the “Incredibles,” working on 747 avionics.  In 1978, 1979, and 1980, he assisted in the construction of Chiang Kai-Shek International Airport in Taipei, Taiwan, designing and installing fire-control systems and reader-board signs.
His 36-year Boeing career was overlapped by his 30-plus-year avocation as a youth-softball and youth-soccer coach and he was president of the Northshore Youth Soccer Association for 13 years. David was named “Coach of the Year” and “Administrator of the Year” by the Washington State Youth Soccer Association and spent the last third of his coaching career at Cedar Park Christian High School.
He was known by many titles and nicknames (“Opa,” “Papa Dave,” “Coach Dave,”). Somewhere up there in Heaven, he’s probably also having Dim Sum with his “brother” Nelson Seto, listening to his mother sing, and talking to Erwin Schrödinger about his cat.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Washington Cathedral at 12300 Redmond-Woodinville Road NE in Redmond on December 15th at 1:30.
David’s family would like to t   hank the staff at Evergreen Hospital, Madison House, and Evergreen Hospice. In lieu of flowers, a donation in David’s name to the American Heart Association would be appreciated.
