LH LI II ,L IJKLA . Page 8 Free Press OBITUARIES Thursday, February 18, 2010 Mary C. Funge Mary C. Funge of Medical Lake passed away on Jan. 19 in Spokane at the age of 60. She was born Nov. 6, 1949 in Tampa, Fla. to Fred J. and Roberta L. Funge. She worked in various posi- tions at Interlake and Lakeland Village. She loved caring for the clients. She retired in March 2000 with 30 years of service. In retirement she enjoyed shopping at the various flea markets and second hand stores looking for that exclusive deal. She also enjoyed her yard and garden, and cussing the deer for trimming vegetables down to the ground. Her various pets ranged from "Cheater" the Chow, "Manny" the Cocker Spaniel and "Pusser Cat" the love of her life and "Lucy" her fat girl kitty. She also enjoyed the "Bunco Nights" and lunches with the ladies. She had numerous friends, neighbors, and acquaintances she admired and she will be dearly missed by many. She also cared for our mother in the last years of her life with the same zeal as her career path. She was preceded in death by her father and mother and many aunts and uncles. She is survived by a son Shawn (Keri) and three beautiful grandchildren Gabe, Brittany, and Morgan of Airway Heights. She is survived by four sisters, Marsha (Chuck) Gurzick, Omaha, Nebr., Margo (Tony) Pazos, Oberlin, Ohio, Patricia (Kurt) Filer Columbia Station, Ohio, Marla (Scott) McLaughlin, Seattle, Wash. and two brothers Fred Funge, Newport, Wash., and Richard (Margaret) Funge, Ritz- viUe, Wash. She is also survived by numerous nephews and nieces. We would like to thank Doc- tor Mroch for his wonderful care and all of the nurses and staff who cared for her as she treasured many of them. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to LakelandVillage Associ- ates, PO Box 200, Medical Lake, WA 99022. A memorial will be held on Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010 at the Medical Lake City Hall Audito- rium at 124 South Lefevre St. from 1p.m. to 4 p.m. Duane W. Reagan Duane W. "Wild Bill" Reagan passed away peacefully with his wife by his side on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at the Ferry County Memorial Hospital in Republic, Wash. Born in Kansas City, Ms. on June 9, 1919, Bill will be re- membered as the proud world traveler of all seven continents. When greeting folks with an accent he recognized, he often C00RCHES would use that language to greet them, grinning all the while at their startled looks upon hearing their native tongue. It always de- lighted Bill when they responded in kind! He never tired of telling jokes, often more than once, and regaled the nurses at Deaconess Hosputal during his last days with knock-knock jokes he simply made up. He learned square danc- ing in high school and as a Rebel Rander traveled to dance on the Senate floor in Washington, D.C. He went on to excel in calling the dances of the Old West. He called dances in countries as far away as Nigeria, on university campuses and at wedding receptions for his daughter and others. He was particularly pleased when a class of challenged eighth graders in Miami, Fla. not only learned the squares, but competently displayed their newfound skills at a school assembly. His great- est delight with this activity was visiting the World's Fair in Spo- kane. Hearing calls, he stepped in to dance. He was asked to call squares the remainder of Expo'74 and began forgng new friendships with people from throughout the world. After completing Air Force flight school in Texas in 1942, Bill was stationed on the European front flying as the lead navigator/ bombadier for the B-26 Martin Marauders during World War II. He was incredibly proud to serve his country in that war. After the surrender of the Nazis, he stayed in Europe and was selected as a member of the 1948 American Olympic Ski Team. He attended five winter Olympic games dur- ing his lifetime, and had every intention of making Vancouver his sixth! In 1952, he was once again sent to Texas to train, this time on B-29 bombers deployed dur- ing the Korean War. While there, he met and married his loving.

Emmanuel Lutheran Church This Sunday, Feb. 21 we begin the observation of the season of Lent. These 40 days (excluding Sundays) called Lent are like no other. It is our oppor- tune time to return to the God who rescues; to receive the gifts of God's grace; to believe with the heart and confess with the mouth the wonder of God's love in Jesus; and to resist temptation at every turn. This is no small pilgrimage on which we have just embarked. It is a struggle Jesus knew. It is a struggle Je- sus shares. As we join together this Sunday the nearness of the Lord, in bread and wine, water and word, will uphold and sus- tain us. Please join us beginning Wednesday, Feb. 24 for our mid- week Lenten soup suppers and worship services.

Our busy lives are what keep us from hearing the 'still,. small voice' of God. We listen to the voices of this world and ignore the one who endured so much more and emerged trium- phant that we might not have to suffer...How will you prepare yourself for the wilderness jour- ney and the joy of Easter?"
