Ruth 'Eleanor' Ceis

Eleanor Ceis, 83, passed away peacefully at home in Bothell on April 25. A celebration of Eleanor's life is planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests supporting Children's Hospital.
   Born March 29, 1918, in Mt. Vernon, Eleanor received a teaching degree from Western Washington State College (now Western Washington University). In 1942 she married David. She managed the books for the Ceis development companies, served as a Bothell precinct committee person and was active in the Northshore PTA. She loved gardening, traveling, camping, photography, music, reading, crafts and, most of all, her family and grandchildren. At 65 Eleanor was still snow skiing and water skiing.
   She is survived by her husband, David; children, Wendy Lavalle (Dennis) of Woodinville, Rod Ceis (Patty) of Woodinville, Marion Bobsin and Linda Rache, both of Bothell.
