Doris June Pearson passed away on April 20th, 2010, at her home in Edmonds. She was born in Seattle on June 24, 1927 and was the only child of her wonderful adoptive parents, George and Lillian Gould. She grew up in Seattle and attended West Seattle High School where she developed friendships that lasted throughout her life.
Doris had many interests growing up, and during World War II, she learned to fly small airplanes with the Civil Air Patrol at Cle Elum, eventually flying solo.
After graduating from high school, Doris began working in the classified advertising department at the Seattle Times, where she met her future husband, Carl Pearson. They were married 44 years, until Carl passed away in 1991.
Doris and Carl established their first home on a one-half acre plot of land in Lynnwood, Washington. They were fond of animals and kept chickens, rabbits, pigs and horses. Doris developed her love for dogs, raising her cocker spaniel, Coffee. Later on she would enter and win competitive dog shows with her champion Basset Hound, Notrenom Sir Digby. In later years, she developed a particular fondness for her cat Chi Chi, her companion for the last fifteen years.
In addition to being a homemaker and raising three boys, Doris further developed her artistic skills after the family moved to Edmonds in the early 1960's. She took several pottery courses and eventually taught the craft and sold her pottery commercially. She also earned her credentials as a Master Gardener and volunteered her time to help fellow gardeners.
We remember Doris for her devotion to friends and family, her passion for travel, a thirst for knowledge, her kindred spirit with animals and nature, her beautiful gardens, her tireless energy, her sense of humor, and her innate ability to catch (and cook) bounties of the sea.
Doris is survived by her children Carl, Steve and Marv, their spouses Kathy, Ann and Marilee, her grandchildren Evan, Lori and Carl, and her sister-in-law, Bettie Black.
