A funeral Mass for John "Jack" Joseph Phelan will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Aug.31, 2009, in St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, Portland. Jack Phelan was born June 28, 1925, in Chicago. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in business and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After the war, the GI Bill enabled him to continue studies at the Universities of Notre Dame and Harvard, earning an advanced degree in economics. In 1955, while living in Yakima, he and several other businessmen started the Bi-Mart chain of stores. In Yakima he met his future wife, Marion Spaulding, and they were married there in 1956. Jack retired in 1985 and he and his wife moved to Portland. Jack continued to work part-time with Bi-Mart on a consulting basis during retirement. He greatly enjoyed his years in Portland and took advantage of its theater, jazz music and fine dining establishments. Jack was preceded in death by his wife, Marion; and is survived by his daughter, Teresa Newton and his son-in-law, Forrest Newton of Seattle.
