Deceased

Laura Deanna "Dea" Strange, 54, of Walla Walla died after a battle with cancer April 11, 1995, at Franciscan Health Care Center.

Dea was born Nov. 24, 1940, in Moscow, ID to Arthur R. and Clemie Zehner Schwarz.  They moved to Walla Walla in 1944 and she graduated with the Walla Walla High School Class of 1959.  She was a member of Rainbow Girls, Triple Trio, the Wa-Hi Choir and the Wa-Hi Orchestra as a cellist.

On July 2, 1960, she married Kenneth Strange in Walla Walla.  She became a member of the Walla Walla Symphony; and had two sons.  She worked in the family restaurant before moving to Portland where she was employed by First National Bank of Oregon in the BankAmericard fraud department for five years.

She returned to Walla Walla in 1971 to work in the family restaurant.  She returned to school in 1979, attending Walla Walla Community College.  She became a Washington State board-certified registered nurse in 1981.

She worked at Walla Walla General Hospital, the Odd Fellows Home and Walla Walla Clinic as a float nurse.

Due to failing health, she retired from nursing.  In 1990, she became owner-operator of Nana's House as a licensed in-home day care provider.  With the diagnosis of cancer in 1993, she retired from day care.

Dea had a beautiful singing voice and was an accomplished pianist.  She played and sang with church choirs, and at weddings and funerals.  She was also talented in hand crafts and enjoyed knitting and crocheting.  She often donated her time and talents to friends, family and many charitable causes.

She overcame the painful realities of her illness to help student nurses understand terminal disease.  Her love for life was matched only by her love for children, especially her grandchildren.

She was a member of the College Place Presbyterian Church and former member of Altrusa Club.

Surviving are her husband, at home; two sons and daughter-in-law, Craig and Patty Strange and Wesley and Deborah Strange, her mother, and a sister, Lois Schultz, all of Walla Walla; five grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.  Her father preceded her in death.

Married 4 2012-07-11 22:32:00
Spouse:  Gladys
Children:  3 Sons & 1 daughter
Grandchildren:  Eight

After graduation from WaHi in 1959, I enjoyed my three years traveling with the U.S. Navy as a Sonarman. This was followed by two years at the University of Idaho majoring in farm management. July 11, 1964 I married Gladys Crane at Lewiston, ID. We lived in Culdesac, ID on a small farm and I began my work with Washington Water Power which is now Avista. There I worked a variety of positions and farmed on the side. These skills proved helpful after I retired in 2000 from the Avista steam generation plant, Kettle Falls, WA. My wife and I participated throughout the years in short term Christian mission trips taking us to Papua New Guinea, Haiti, Venezuela, and Vanuatu. We moved to Vanuatu (formally New Hebrides in the South Pacific) for 4 ½ years where we served as full time missionaries. My capacity was primarily in support roles and Gladys used nursing to share Jesus with the people. Dec. 2007 we returned to Colville, WA where we now reside. Our future plans include additional short term mission trips, and enjoying our family and friends. We have three sons and one daughter who are married and eight beautiful grandchildren (thus far).

gibkathw@cs.com Retired - school teacher Married 2012-07-11 22:27:43
Spouse:  Gib
Activities/Hobbies:
Running, Hiking, Skiing

Since graduating from the U of Idaho (where I met my husband), I taught school for 36 years, mostly fourth grade.  I retired nine years ago and since then we've spent a lot more time traveling.  Summers we spend a lot of time on the Oregon Coast at a little beach house in Gearhart that my brother and I kept after my parents died.  We've also owned a condo at Sun Valley for years and spend a lot of time there.  Living here in Idaho, we take advantage of all the wonderful outdoor activities.  Running is one of our special interests and we've remained very active in the running community.  Our other big passion since college has been wine.

Hazel Selby Keen

 

April 25, 1940 —  Aug. 3, 2016

Hazel wants her loved ones to celebrate August 3, 2016. She embarked on another step in her eternal journey on this day from her home in Walla Walla, at the age of 76.

Hazel Joan Selby was born April 25, 1940 to William and Dorothy Selby, and lived in Tacoma until she was five years old. She was the fourth of seven children. In 1946, her family moved to Walla Walla, where she resided primarily her entire life. She attended Walla Walla Public Schools.

 

She married Jack VanDyke, Sept. 13, 1958, and three children (Judy, John, and Jeff) were born into the union. They divorced in 1974.

On Feb. 7, 1975, Hazel married Jack Keen. They became a team always committed to each other, experiencing pleasant, easy times and extremely difficult moments together. He passed away on July 28, 1998.

Locally, Hazel worked in the food service industry where she produced and supervised the making of thousands of meals for more than 30 years. She attended Walla Walla Community College and achieved the designation of Certified Dietary Manager. She was an entrepreneur. In her retirement years, she developed a consignment store in College Place, which she ran for several years. Her last enterprise was selling Walla Walla Sweet Onions from a stand on the Old Highway 12. There she not only earned money but also enjoyed conversing with friends and customers for more than 10 years. As a young mother, she worked with youth groups. She was a Girl Scout leader. For the National Little League, she willingly gave time and assistance whenever there was a need and ran the ball field’s concession stand. Her favorite pastime was watching things grow, especially her plants, children and grandchildren. In retirement, she spent winters at her Arizona home.

 

Family and friends remember Hazel for her generous heart. She willingly gave and forgave others. She had a brilliant, creative mind and a giant determination to succeed. She was an independent woman who was able to share and care for others.

Her parents and four siblings precede Hazel in death. She is survived by two brothers, William Selby of Walla Walla and James Selby of Colorado; a daughter, Judy VanDyke; a step-daughter, Jennifer Turner (Phillip); two sons, John VanDyke (Denise), and Jeff VanDyke (Crystal); four grandchildren, Megan Newman, James, Jordan and Aden VanDyke; two step-grandchildren, Sean and Shane Turner; and two great grandchildren, Anthony and Nevaeh Newman.

A Memorial Service will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 13, 2016, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1821 2nd Ave., Walla Walla. In lieu of flowers, Hazel requests that memorial offerings be made to the World-Wide Humanitarian Aid Fund through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (envelopes provided at the service).
