Pauline Linch was the first daughter of Clifford and Cora Linch, born on November 18, 1919, in Huntington Park, Calif. After growing up in Washougal, she met and later married Hugh Anderson of Edmonds, Wash.
The couple eventually settled in Innis Arden and shared a love affair few married couples have ever known, lasting just short of 60 years — until Hugh’s passing in July of 2000.
The Andersons were proud supporters of University of Washington athletics, and Pauline didn’t leave us until she got to see the end of the Apple Cup.
Both Pauline and Hugh could often be found on the golf course and were long-time members at Sand Point Country Club, as well as Sunland CC, Inglewood CC, and Bear Creek CC.
Now, after 12 years of waiting for his “Pawnee,” Hugh and Pauline can finally tee it up together again.
Pauline was preceded in death within the past few months by her sisters-in-law, Lois Anderson of Federal Way and Agnes Nilsen (Anderson) of Seattle.
She leaves behind two daughters, Carole Romasanta of Sequim and Jeanne Hannah of Woodinville, along with four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
