Evelyne Mannhalt Adler went to join her best friend and mother Thursday morning after a blessedly short battle with cancer, she was surrounded by family when she passed.
Evelyne was born in Shanghai, China where her family had fled from Nazi Germany. They came to Seattle in 1947. She was a member of the charter class of the Herzl Synagogue Confirmation program.
Evelyne was a 1958 graduate of Garfield H.S. and attended the University of Washington. She worked for State Representative and City Council member Sam Smith in both Olympia and Seattle. She was also a 32 year employee of the City of Seattle where she had many dear friends.
Evelyne loved to help others and was an active volunteer with the Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Symphony and Seattle Jewish and International Film Festivals. She had hoped to be a Study Buddy tutor but was unable to do so due to her illness. She also gave to various charities.
She is remembered by her friends and family as a giving and honest person.
She is survived by her children Deborah (Tod) Herrick; Steven Adler; granddaughter Jasmine Herrick; future daughter in law Nance Morris; brother Guenter Mannhalt and his children Becky, Gregg, David and Mark and many grand nieces and nephews; sister-in-law Sandy Mannhalt, former husband Norbert Adler and family in Israel.
She was predeceased by her parents Bluma and Siegbert Mannhalt who were fixtures of Jewish Seattle as owners of Bluma's Deli on Cherry Street and brother Herbert Mannhalt. Evelyne will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
True to her nature she was strong to the end but passed peacefully surrounded by love. Her greatest joys in her last months were her granddaughter Jasmine and having both her children here in Seattle with her.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, nurse's aides, social workers, EMT's and all others who lovingly cared for Evelyne and the family during her illness.
Funeral will be at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 13th at Herzl Memorial Park at 165th and Dayton in Shoreline. The family requests no flowers but a donation in honor of Evelyne may be made to the American Cancer Society, Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Symphony, City of Hope, Northwest Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice.
