Remembering Mary Mittelstaedt

Mary Katherine Mittelstaedt went home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ on Tuesday, October 2, 2018, at the age of 94 years.  She was born on May 10, 1924 in Anacortes, WA, the daughter of Ralph and Katheryn Davis.  Mary lived most of her life in Seattle.  She attended the University of Washington. 

For many years, she was an active member at Westminster Chapel, Bellevue, WA and the Borrego Springs Christian Center in Borrego Springs, CA.  Mary particularly enjoyed the years spent helping to build a church in Borrego.  Mary’s interests included: Bible study, gardening (which included a master bonsai collection), knitting and sewing.  Mary’s favorite past-time in later years was spending time with family at her home on Guemes Island, off the coast of Anacortes.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved husband of 57 years, Lester W. Mittelstaedt, M.D.  Mary is survived by her four children: Stephen (Deborah), Grant, Joy (Peter Huwiler) and Robin Mittelstaedt; grandchildren: Amelia (Tyler), Blake (Hillary), Alex, Alison, Chantal, Peter (Jessica), Matthew and Jonathan; great-grandchildren: Scarlett, Sloane, Max, Riley, Lexi, Jonovan, Melly and Dylan.  Mary is also survived by her sister, Joy Cross of Tacoma, WA.

Funeral Service for Mary will be held at Evans Funeral Chapel on Saturday, October 6, 2018, 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.  A private family graveside service will take place at Eden Cemetery on Guemes Island.
