Moose Jaw, Sask., Canada, is given as last permanent residence and destination as Seattle, WA, USA. For unknown reason, Durward's name doesn't appear.

Tuesday, January 22, 2013, Mary Elizabeth Ida Stutzke (Johnston), born March 10, 1932, passed away at age 80 due to heart failure after losing her vibrant health. She loved living on the waterfront in Hansville, WA, following her retirement as a supervisor at Boeing Aircraft Co., October 1987. She realized one of her childhood desires, and being a gifted artist, produced many water color paintings. A number of these were juried pieces winning recognition. Her family cherishes those they hold that she did on commission or her own inspiration.
Mary's husband, soul mate, and the love of her life, Harry Stutzke, preceded her in death December 30, 2005. She will be interned at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent in the same plot where Harry (formerly a US Navy officer) is located. It was her overriding heartfelt desire to be with Harry again, and we all rest easy knowing that she now is. ...
