Rawls of Bow, WA; her father, Franklin "Doc" Cline of Walla Walla; a brother, Chuck Cline of Port Orchard, WA; former husband, Robert DeGabriele of Bothell, WA; seven grandchildren: Alex, Gretchen, and Dylan DeGabriele, Emma and Audrey Rawls, Tia and Sara Kay.  She was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley Kay.  She was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley Cline.

July 2009
In the summer of 1959 I would not have presumed the interesting turns and twists that the next 50 years would present. My focus then was to move on to college and to complete a degree in my chosen profession, Architecture. My experiences in Walla Walla provided a good foundation for the future. Although my time there following graduation was limited, I have strong recollections of the people and events that created opportunities far beyond those I ever imagined.
Band was a primary activity of mine in school. That led to participation in the U of W Marching Band. Unlike the 2008 football season, the Huskies went to the Rose Bowl three times in the five years I was in college. My introduction to California occurred as a member of the Band, a circumstance that ultimately led to residency in Santa Monica of more than 30 years.
In 1962 my family moved from Walla Walla to Oregon and it was there that I found work opportunities in architecture, first in Corvallis and then in Portland. I was first licensed as an Architect in Oregon and have added licenses in other states since then. After eleven years in Oregon, the sunshine and warmth of Southern California called and I responded. By this time Walla Walla was well off my beaten path. Between 1962 and 1996 I was in Walla Walla on only two, brief occasions.
My work in architecture has taken me to a variety of places in the United States, has included numerous trips to Japan and Korea, a few to Europe, and even one to the Middle East. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with a number of creative people and to see abstract ideas become the reality of buildings.
On a sunny day in July, 1996, my world changed significantly. Up to that moment my immediate family consisted of my mother, a sister and brother-in-law, two nieces, two aunts, and half-dozen cousins. With a few spoken words, my family expanded to include my life partner, Anne Tyler (Wa-Hi ’61), four children (two with spouses), three grandchildren, a mother and father-in-law, seven brothers and sisters-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews. Since then, two more children’s spouses have joined the party and the grandchildren now number fifteen, with the sixteenth expected in October. For me skipping a generation and going straight to grandchildren has worked well. I would much rather spoil than discipline.
Having re-established a connection to Walla Walla, I have returned about twice a year since 1996. It is interesting to see the evolution of the city. While much has changed, the inherent qualities that made it a great place to grow up remain. I occasionally check the webcam at First and Main to see what the weather is like. I have no difficulty in viewing the snow from afar but do appreciate watching the trees come into bloom and leaf out in the spring, and to see the traffic backed up at Second and Main during rush hour.
My appreciation to the organizing committee members for their efforts in planning the reunion. I look forward to seeing classmates from 50 years ago and comparing notes.
