We will be Celebrating My Mother's Life twice in the next couple months. Once in Hemet at the Colonial Country Club (601 N. Kirby Street, Hemet, Ca) on December 5th @ 3 pm. The second Celebration will be held in Stanwood, Washington, at the United Methodist Church on January 23rd @ 1 pm. All our Friends and Family our invited to join us in celebrating the life of the most amazing woman we have ever known.
In the memory of Nancy Mouat (June 14, 1949-November 17, 2014)
On Monday, November 17, 2014, Nancy Mouat went to be with the Lord surrounded by her husband Wayne, son Michael, and daughter-in-law Caitlin Mouat. Many thanks in the Hemet Fire Department and AMR who tried so valiantly to save her.
Nancy dearly loved her granddaughter, Gracie, and she was one of the primary reasons she moved to California. Nancy is survived by her husband of forty-eight years, Wayne Mouat, her loving daughter, Mary Mouat-Munson and husband Karl and their daughter in love, Ruby, her two wonderful sons, Michael and his wife Caitlin Mouat and William and his wife Stephanie Mouat and their children, Colby and Chandler, and her mother, Mary Coombs.
Nancy’s life was dedicated to the Order of the Eastern Star and her family. She spent her final years caring for her mother and was just beginning to enjoy retirement when she was taken from us so suddenly.
Nancy had a passion for traveling and spent the last fourteen years traveling all over the United States with her “booth” serving the Eastern Star at their many conventions.
My dearest one, your pain is through. From all of us our love to you goes on forever. This is not goodbye but just adieu.

Helen and I went to the Gold Ribbon Night for Pediatric Cancer Awareness sponsored by Seattle Children's last night and heard about the advances in Pediatric Cancer Care.  The Ben Towne Center has treated more than ten patients now and all are doing well for Leukemia. 

Children's has just started it's first clinical trial treating for Neuroblastoma, which is the desease Ben Towne succumbed to, and what we were collecting money for all year.  So we really did contribute to something great, great job everybody.

                   $47,703.30 for the year.
