Joe Kellie Memorial Service

The memorial service for my dad, Joe Kellie, will be held on Saturday, September 8th, 5:30 pm at the Kirkland Masonic Center. There will be a light buffet following the service.   It’s later in the afternoon to allow those who might be going to the OV at the Masonic Park time to get to Kirkland for the service. The obituary will be in this Sunday’s Seattle Times and will also be on the Seattle Times website.

I wish to thank all of my OES sisters and brothers for their kind words about my dad, the many cards, hugs and prayers - it's so wonderful to belong to such a loving and caring order.

News from Andy Storjohann, PGM of ID

I have setup a Facebook page to keep in touch with Eastern Stars Sister and Brothers and for them to share what they are thinking.
The page is Andy Paroni Storjohann
Follow my travels on the Eastern Star Highway - in the last few weeks I have attended Texas Grand Chapter, Arizona Grand Chapter and 13 Original States Exchange. Always a good time on the Eastern Star Highway! As a candidate for Right Worthy Associate Grand Conductress at General Grand Chapter in November, I would like to hear what's on your mind regrading our wonderful Order of the Eastern Star."

Many members have been wondering about the status on Duane Nelson since Grand Chapter.  Here is an update given to me by WM Barbara Burleigh of Vida Chapter.  Duane was taken to the hospital in Yakima on Wednesday of Grand Chapter and remained there until that Sunday.  Since coming home he had gall bladder surgery on August 9th and was to go home on Saturday, August 11th.  He would enjoy cards and is listed as AP of Vida Chapter in the 2011-12 Blue Book.  For those who don’t know Duane you might know him as one the guys who “runs” the hand microphones on the floor during Grand Chapter.  He has done so for several years.  Duane is the current WP of Vida Chapter.

The Grand Chapter of Arizona was held in Glendale August 2nd-4th and I’m happy to report that PGP Joe Ivey was able to attend – another shining example of the power of prayer! WGM Jane Blair Garcia and WGP Earl Wunder welcomed Joe’s family to the Grand East during Thursday’s afternoon session to do a special presentation about Joe’s OES history. It concluded with their presentation of an American flag to the Grand Chapter of Arizona in honor of Joe’s 50th anniversary of being WGP. Then, during the evening session, when it came time to introduce the Past Grands, they introduced Joe ahead of the rest and by his new title of “Senior Past Grand Patron.” Joe was so pleased by all of this, and it made Arizona’s “Follow Your Dreams” session extra special for me, too.

It is with a very heavy heart that I let you know that Kirkland Chapter’s favorite Irishman, Joe Kellie, passed away today, August 4th at 3:30 pm.  I was able to be with him until the end.  He is now at peace and with mom, his beloved wife of 65 years.

Friday evening, August 3rd, was an exceptionally warm and fraternally convivial evening during the Official Visit of the Worthy Grand Matron at Centralia & Chehalis Chapters.  As the current Grand Representatives were presented and introduced, and before they were returned to their place in the Chapter, I interrupted the Worthy Matron and asked if we might add to this august group.  After a few comparisons of the similarities of flora and fauna and fruit crops between our two states, I had the privilege of presenting a West Virginia Grand Representative commission to a very stunned and most pleasantly surprised Bro. Vern Young of Centralia Chapter.
