Kristin Arnasson Gudmundsdotter Hreinson

Funeral services were held in the First ward meeting house Saturday afternoon over the remains of Mrs. John Hreinson, who died last Thursday morning at six o'clock at the age of fifty-five years at her home in First ward. Mrs. Hreinson's health has been on the decline for a long time past and during the five weeks preceeding her death she had been confined to her bed, suffering with catarrh of the stomach.

The house was filled to overflowing with friends and relatives who had come to pay their last respects to the departed.

Bishop R.W. McKell presided over the services. Henry Tilley offered the opening prayer. The speakers were Gesli Bjarnason, Ira J. McKell and Wm. Johnson, all of whom bore a faithful testimony to the sterling life and character of the deceased. Lars W. Nielsen rendered a very appropriate solo in a beautiful manner. The benediction was pronounced by Joseph E. Wilkens.

None but those who have sat in the shadow of a great bereavement can justly weigh such a sorrow as this. Those who have gone down into the valley of suffering and stood for months by the side of a loved one as hope after hope dropped away as the petals fall from a fading flower know that such anquish cannot find solace in the tenderest words. She who has gone forth could not be supported on her solitary path by any earthly friend. The husband, whose heroic devotion never faltered, could not detain her by the clasp of earthly love; but after the last word had been spoken, the last sign of recognition was gone, a look of peace, which proclaimed victory settled on her face and he knew she was resting on a mighty arm.

Molly May Sullivan Watts

Molly May Watts entered heaven's gate on January 8, 2008. Molly May Sullivan Watts

She was born on April 12, 1925 in Garrison, North Dakota to James & Louise (Watterberg) Sullivan.

At 17, Molly graduated co-valedictorian of her class in Priest River, Idaho. The next day she married her sweetheart, Victor Henry Watts. They had 5 children and celebrated 44 years of marriage before he passed away in 1986.

Molly spent most of her adult life in Northwest Washington. She started a daycare in her home in the 70's here in Mount Vernon. Molly believed that there is no such thing as a 'bad' child, only ones that hadn't learned yet how 'good' they really are. She would tell them what good kids they were until they finally believed it.

Molly loved working on her scrapbooks long before it became the 'in' thing to do. It was important to her that her life, as well as her families, be documented for future generations to come. She wrote wonderful long letters to all her family and friends over the years and loved sending cards and getting mail. She tried to stay in touch with everyone, letting them know she cared. Molly was loved by many and will be missed by all.

Molly is survived by her daughters: her sisters, and brother. She also leaves behind many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces, and nephews and a lifetime of friends.

Molly was preceded in death by her son, Harold Watts, and her daughter, Virginia Bates.

Molly was laid to rest beside her husband at Hawthorne Cemetery. As was her wish, there will be no service or memorial.

The family would appreciate any gifts made to Hawthorne Funeral Home to help with expenses.
