E.G. “Butch” Manry left this earth
on July 25, 2014, to be with his loving
wife of 67 years and into the loving
arms of their savior, our Lord Jesus
Christ. Butch was born on January
29, 1925, in Salem, AR to Fred
and Lula Manry. He had one sister,
Eula May, and one brother, Bob. He
finished high school in Arkansas.
Then, in 1941, moved to Washington
with his family. In 1943, he enlisted
in the United States Navy and
finished basic training in Farragut,
ID. After that, he went to Palo Alto, CA
for advanced training and then to the Admiralty Islands, where he
served until 1946. In 1945, Butch went home on leave and met
and married the love of his life, Geneva Copeland, to whom he
was married for 67 years, until her passing in August, 2013. He
spent some time on a ship in Discovery Bay, then Pier 91 in Seattle,
before being honorably discharged in 1946. After being discharged,
Butch and his wife came back to Wenatchee to start a family. He
worked on Rock Island Dam, then Bennit’s Garage, before owning
and operating Doneen Garage and Parking. He then went to work
for Joe Welty Ford as the Sales Manager until he retired in 1985, to
spend time with his wife, who had medical problems.
When he retired, he and his wife leased out their home for a year,
purchased a travel trailer and went to Florida. Along the way, they
made many special stops to visit old friends and family. Butch loved
to play golf and for many years played
with three special golf buddies, who
sadly all preceded him in death; he
continued to play until he physically
could no longer do so. Butch also
loved to fish and bird hunt. Many
times he would get up early in the
morning and go fishing, and still
be back in time for Sunday service.
Butch was a member of Wenatchee
Valley Baptist Church for 50 years.
He served as a Deacon of the church
for 35 years, and Church Treasurer
for 25. He was also a Sunday School
Director, Teacher, and did other ministries during his membership.
Butch also served a four year term on the Executive Board of the
Northwest Baptist Convention.
Butch was a devout Christian, a caring loving husband, a wonderful
father and a terrific friend. He will be missed by all, but we know that
he is truly in a better place. He is now pain free, and happy in the
arms of his loving wife and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Butch is survived by three children, Gloria Osborn of Wenatchee,
WA, Patsy Vail of Oak Harbor, WA, and Randy Manry of Wenatchee,
WA; ten grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and three
great-great-grandchildren. Preceding him in death is his sister, Eula
May Kelly; and his parents, Fred and Lula Manry.
A Committal Service for Butch will be held Monday, August 4,
2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Wenatchee City Cemetery Mausoleum.
There will be a time of sharing after at 1636 Meadow Ridge Drive,
Wenatchee. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley,
East Wenatchee, WA.
B. (Bonnie) Morgyn
Taylor, 62, a kind,
intelligent, loyal, and
beautiful soul, passed
away much too soon,
on Wednesday, July 9,
2014. Morgyn was born
on August 9, 1951, and
raised in Cashmere,
WA, by her mom and
dad, Lois and Bill
Forte, and her special
Gramma, Mabel Taylor.
She grew up in her
family’s beloved house on the Wenatchee River, a place where she
came back to visit many, many times throughout the years. Upon
graduating from Cashmere High School in 1969, she moved to
Seattle, WA to attend the University of Washington — forever a proud
Husky! Soon moving to Los Angeles, CA, she became a respected
businesswoman in the field of finance, working 35 years for the
same company. Morgyn loved traveling and also spent many happy
times on Maui with the Ballinger family. She was an avid theater
fan, often going to New York to see the latest production. Morgyn
looked forward every year to attending the Monterey Jazz Festival.
Christmases were either spent with her family in Cashmere, where
Morgyn loved being embraced by both sides of the large Stoltenberg
family, or in California with her other family, the Ballinger’s, who
also considered her part of their family! She was loved by many.
Another favorite holiday in the Taylor-Forte family was Memorial Day.
Beginning with Gramma Mabel, then Lois and Bill, Morgyn continued
to carry the torch for American Legion Post #64 in Cashmere.
Rain or shine, Morgyn would help and/or simply just be there to
honor the veterans on Memorial Day at the Cashmere Cemetery.
Walking through the flower-decorated cemetery later in the day, tiny
American flags waving in the breeze, was a time honored tradition
with Morgyn. She was so very proud of her dad, “Big Bill,” who
served at Pearl Harbor during WWII. When he was ailing, Morgyn
was by his side, loving him and fighting for the best medical care
available. When Lois could no longer live on her own, Morgyn was
by her side, loving her, and again, searching for the best alternative.
She gave devoted attention to her mom and dad, sometimes from
afar in California, but also on extended visits to Cashmere. Although
extremely independent, Morgyn was fierce in her love and loyalty for
those she cared about. And, being forthright (often with wit), she
didn’t hesitate to tell you so if need be!
Recently, Morgyn came to Wenatchee to be with her mom, Lois,
who was ill and who then passed away on May 7, 2014. Still in
Cashmere, and not feeling well herself, Morgyn soon received a
terminal diagnosis, passing away on July 9, 2014. Her last weeks
were spent in Palm Springs, CA at the home of dear friends, John
Ballinger and Rod Davis, where she was lovingly cared for during
this time. You will be dearly missed Morgyn.
Morgyn is remembered by family and friends: Nancy Bruehl,
Suzanne Hoskinson, Teri Johnson, Flo Stoltenberg, John Ballinger,
Rod Davis, Jan and Ric Evans, Julie Armstrong, Mike Oliphant, Jesus
Anaya, and Juan Jimemez, along with many others.
Please join us to celebrate, honor, and remember together, the
lives of both Morgyn and Lois on Saturday, August 9, 2014, at 11:00
a.m. at the American Legion Hall in Cashmere. In lieu of flowers,
we think Morgyn would appreciate, if you desire, a donation in her
name to the American Legion, Revlon Breast Cancer Foundation, or
a local non-profit that helps women recover from violence.

Douglas Roy Winberg, of Moscow,
ID, died unexpectedly on Tuesday,
July 29, 2014, at his home. He was
39 years old. Doug was born April 18,
1975, in Seattle, WA to Rhea Mann
Winberg and Robert John Winberg.
He grew up in Edmonds, WA,
graduated from Edmonds-Woodway
High School in 1994, and went on to
attend Edmonds Community College
and Spokane Falls Community
College. In 2006, Doug accepted a
position at the University of Idaho
as Instrumentation Supervisor in
the Chemistry Department. On January 7, 2012, at Meadowinds,
he married his loving and devoted wife, Nancy Cheadle, of East
Wenatchee, WA. Doug had a great sense of humor and an infectious
smile. He enjoyed fixing electronics and had a collection of vintage
radios and rotary dial telephones. He loved living in the Palouse
area and could often be found riding his bike and hiking with his
family, or hunting treasures at yard sales and thrift stores. He is also
known for his scrumptious grilled plank salmon.
Doug is survived by his loving wife, Nancy; his one year old son,
Daniel Paul; his mother, Rhea; brother, Jeffrey J. Winberg of Mount
Vernon, WA; nephew, J.J. Winberg; sister, April M. Miklautsch
(Dietrich) of Sammamish, WA; and nephews, Landon, Kyler and
Trey Miklautsch. Doug is also survived by a large extended family of
aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, neighbors, co-workers, and friends,
especially his very dear friend, Frank Ramirez. Doug was preceded
in death by his father in 1992.
A private Burial was held at Moscow Cemetery on Friday, August
1, 2014. The family asks that you join them at the Moscow Church
of the Nazarene on Saturday, August 2, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. for a
Celebration of Doug’s Life, followed by a reception in the Fellowship
Hall. There will also be an additional Celebration of Life held at
a later date in the Puget Sound area, details to follow. In lieu of
flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to the Dave
Thomas Foundation for Adoption or PATH Foster Care Program.
