This memorial website was created in memory of our loving mom, Alice Elizabeth "Betty" Lund (nee Locke), 88, born on May 27, 1927 and who passed away on September 25, 2015. We will remember her forever! She was a talented artist who didn't get a chance to do all she could have, and she taught gradeschool in Dallesport, WA and touched many young lives. Unfortunately Alzheimer's overcame her at the end, but she died peacefully in her sleep. She is survived as of today by her son (Arnold Jr.) and her daughters Christine Griffiths and Jeanne von Borstel, and she has 7 grandchildren and 4 amazing great-grandchildren.
Betty was laid to rest at Washelli Cemetary, in Seattle. If you would like to see the video of her life shown at the memorial service at Berean Bible Church, it is at https://youtu.be/LJG327Bo3wY.
If you'd like to make a donation in Alice's honor, the Alzheimer's Association at www.alz.org or Art Therapy Without Borders at www.atwb.org would be appropriate.
"Thinking about mom lately a lot. Wishing she could be here to enjoy seeing Sonja and Anna getting their lives going as grown-ups. I think she would have enjoyed how Edmonds has changed and the place we have found where we are settling in, and some of the pottery we've been finding here. And interesting how often mom comes up in our conversations. Yesterday I took one of her paintings into a framer to get it reframed. It will be great to get it out for people to see, and every time I look at it I think of mom and her tray with her paints painting in the living room at Richmond Beach."
Have a suggestion for us?
