Evelyn N Heatherington
Evelyn Heatherington, 95 of Renton, WA passed away peacefully with family present on Novemeber 24, 2016. She was born December 22, 1920 in Marysville, WA.
She worked at the Market Basket store bakery for many years and then was employed at A & H Drugs in the Renton Highlands until her retirement.
She led a very active life. She loved to travel and was able to visit interesting places . She loved to garden and up until the last couple of years still enjoyed going out there and getting her hands dirty. She enjoyed going to garage sales and thrift stores with family and friends. She was always able to find a 'treasure'. She was a beautiful seamstress and enjoyed embroidery work as well as making baby quilts for many newborns. She was still doing her hand work right up to the end of her life. Mom loved baseball and the Mariners have lost one of their most loyal fans.
She is survived by her children, Pat Zebell, Nancy Tiegs (Ted), Beverly Painter, Rebecca McCarthy, Elizabeth Heatherington, her sister Aileen Bellman, seven grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews.
She touched many lives in her lifetime and her love for family and friends was very special to her. We were so fortunate and proud to have had such a wonderful mother and role model. We will miss her and she will be forever in our hearts.
A celebration of her life will take place at a later date.
Those whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before.
They are now wherever we are!
-St. John Chrysostom
