CELEBRATING MY LIFE by ANN MERGENS It always seems to me I couldn’t love them more, but each year, by God’s grace, I do . . . Those I love and those who love me-- My Other Half Dick, son Mark, daughter Lisa Russell and husband Ken, son Todd, grandblessings Richard Mergens and wife Miko, Kellie Mergens, Dani Russell, Kendra Russell and good friend Danny Martin, great grandblessings Saya Mergens, and Adilyn Martin, brother Dave Smith and wife Tillie, sister-in-law Maribeth Yandle, brother-in-law John Mergens and wife Patty, sister-in-law Gail Smith, many cherished friends, caregivers and my canine buddies. Preceding me in this “life journey†, my parents Jessie and Harold Smith, brother Herb Smith, brothers-in-law Jim Mergens and Kenny Yandle. I loved my Lord, my family, walking in the wind, and all sorts of music and theater. I especially loved the written word and worked as a freelance writer for several publications. When you think of me, plant a flower, read a good book, visit those in a hospital or care center. You’ll be glad you did and so will they. “There will come a time when everything is finished. That will be the beginning.†WILL YOU REMEMBER ME? I WILL REMEMBER YOU. Ann was born in Denver, Colorado and passed away peacefully at her home in Raymond on Monday, November 17, 2014. Ann was married to Dick for 62 years. She was employed by Timberland Regional Library in Raymond for several years and was an administrative assistant in the Pacific County Juvenile Court for many years before retiring in 1994. Ann was a very giving, compassionate person. Throughout the years, she donated countless hours to many charitable organizations in the community. Many people will remember Ann by her Meanderings columns in the local papers. Ann had battled her illness bravely and without complaint for many months with support from her friends, caregivers, and family members. A memorial mass will be held Saturday, November 22, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Raymond to celebrate Ann’s life. In lieu of flowers, at her request, donations may be made to HAVA, Willapa Harbor Helping Hands, or a charity of your choice.
