Imagine you are holding a milkshake. Test its consistency by scooping up a spoonful and letting it drip back into the glass. Or, just dump it onto the floor and watch it splatter. What does it look like—a thick, blobby smear, or a watery splash on the floor and walls?

The cheesemonger What would you do if you couldn’t fail? Fall City’s Julie Steil makes cheese By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Success is less about having the right answers than it is about asking the right questions. Doubters, just take a look at Julie Steil.

She started filming her own television show this spring. The Fall City woman wholesales most of her specialty cheeses to chefs in Seattle-area restaurants, and opens a retail shop on weekends. She sells out anyway, since she teaches cheese-making and students clear the shelves of, among other things, cheese-making supplies and her home-made cheesecake. See STEIL, 6

Option A squared off against Plan B Thursday evening, in the school bond arena. In one corner, the eightyear, $200 million proposal to build a sixth elementary school and remodel Mount Si High School over the next decade, better known as Option A, looked like the heavyweight. In the opposite corner, challenger Plan B, at $30 million for a sixth elementary school only was no featherweight, but it looked like one in contrast. T h e Snoqualmie School Valley School decision Board dis- Option A cussed, but builds a sixth didn’t act on elementary either choice school and Sept. 26, but starts phase 1 will address of a Mount Si them again High School Oct. 10.

“Landslide, mudslide, it’s kind of in the eye of the beholder,” said Gildersleeve, who works in the Snoqualmie office of the Kevin Hauglie Agency, recalling what an instructor had said in her first training. “If it looks like a chocolate milkshake, that’s a flood and we’re going to cover it under the flood policy. If it looks like chunks of dirt in water, that’s a landslide, and we’re not going to cover it, under the flood policy.” The Hauglie Agency staff members are refreshing their own flood insurance knowledge, and hoping to help others do the same as a series of flood insurance reforms starts taking effect Oct. 1. The Biggert-Waters Reform Act of 2012 was a discussion item at the fifth annual Snoqualmie Valley Flood Forum, held last week in Snoqualmie. “It is overwhelmingly complex,” says Hauglie agent Angela Donaldson, “even for people like us who live and breathe it.” Part of the reason is that the changes planned for the next five years under Biggert-Waters are not yet finalized. The law, adopted July 6, 2012, to maintain the National Flood Insurance Program, is going to change building code, lending code and, of course, the insurance program, Donaldson said. It will also affect many residents financially, since nearly every property in the Valley is in a floodplain or floodway, with some risk of flooding. Flood insurance premiums will rise dramatically in the next few years, since one goal of the reform package was to make the

program sustainable. How the rates rise will depend on when the home was built. More recent construction, built in communities that already have a flood insurance rate map, or FIRM in place, will see an annual increase in premium of about 20 percent annually, or until the homes are actuarially rated, and they are paying for insurance for their level of risk. Owners of insured buildings completed before the maps —1984 in Snoqualmie, 2005 in North Bend, and 1976 in King County—were in place, will lose 25 percent of a federal subsidy on their flood insurance premiums at the next renewal after Oct. 1. These “pre-FIRM homes” will continue to lose a quarter of the subsidy each of the next four years, or until the homes are actuarially rated. That applies only to primary homes. Pre-FIRM properties that are commercial, rentals, or lived in by the owner for less than 20 percent of the year will lose the federal flood insurance subsidy entirely when they renew their policies after Oct. 1. All pre-FIRM properties will be required to provide elevation certificates when they renew their flood insurance, too. An elevation certificate is a legal document with information on the construction, elevation and orientation of a building on a property. It can take as little as a week to get, and Donaldson said they typically cost between $500 and $2,000. However, she cautions homeowners to be sure they are dealing with an experienced surveyor for this document. “It’s a very detailed document that only a surveyor who’s comfortable with elevation certificates should do,” she said. For the Valley, she suggests asking for recommendations or help from your community’s floodplain manager, or checking the FEMA website ( She frequently recommends surveyor Mike Root for local work. An elevation certificate could also mean good news, for instance in parts of North Bend, where the base flood elevation has been decreasing, Gildersleeve said. Some properties may no longer be required to have flood insurance (the insurance can be required only if a property has a federally-backed mortgage). “For North Bend residents, they’re going to want to get those elevation certificates sooner rather than later,” she added, because they can’t cancel the insurance until the policy is due for renewal. In other cases, the elevation certificate process could reveal some areas in which insured homeowners might be able to keep their insurance costs lower, Donaldson said. The best examples of this are adding fill and vents to under-home crawlspaces, she said. The fill helps to equalize the external floodwater pressure—three times the normal pressure for every foot that goes below the ground — on foundations and footings. The vents allow floodwaters to pass through the crawlspace unimpeded, and, she stresses, without human intervention. There’s much more to consider, which is why Donaldson advises everyone, even people with a low risk of flooding who might be surprised by the changes, to talk to their insurance agents about flood risk. “The one thing that we can do about it is making sure that the properties we own or live in are at the lowest risk possible,” she added. “Because at the end of the day, insurance is there to protect what you work hard for.”

Contract talks end, Carnation to seek new police provider

In Brief

Fence finale: North Bend Elementary project is complete

The city of Duvall has ended contract negotiations with Carnation for shared police services between the two cities. Carnation City Manager Ken Carter confirmed Tuesday, Oct. 1, that the contract, which expires Dec. 31, will not be renegotiated. Citing an overworked police force and difficulties in recruiting new officers, Duvall Mayor Will Ibershof had recommended to the Duvall City Council at its Sept. 26 meeting to end negotiations. Several council members expressed concern that they hadn’t known earlier about the staffing difficulties, but none opposed ending the negotiations. Carnation’s City Council met Tuesday, after press time, and police services were originally on the agenda to review the contract under discussion. Instead, Carter said the council would likely discuss other police service options. Carnation has contracted with Duvall for police services since late 2004. In 2011, the financially struggling city negotiated a new contract for a reduced level of service in 2012 and 2013. In June, Duvall’s council voted to terminate that contract and begin negotiations on a new contract to return to the previous level of service. Ibershof told the Record Tuesday that while Duvall feels Carnation has been a great partner, the northern city couldn’t commit to a one-year contract due to staffing challenges and a lack of guaranteed funding. The pullback from negotiations was an administrative decision. Ibershof said council and staff wanted to make it work, but couldn’t. “I can’t in clear conscience sign a new agreement with Carnation,” he said. “We can’t find the bodies to fulfill the decision.”

Preliminary enrollment numbers for this school year supported the idea, showing more than 550 students at every elementary, more than 600 at one, and more than 700 at another. The board authorized TCF Architecture to begin designs for the new elementary on Sept. 12, in hopes of accelerating the process and opening the new building in 2015.

that in one shot.” However, he said, the district could consider repackaging the bond, or even running an elementaryonly bond later in the year if a full Option A bond failed this spring. Popp questioned the wisdom of repackaging, asking Doy, “Does it give the community a sense of uncertainty if, in the process of discussing (passing Option A), we create a plan B?” Doy agreed that it did, and said, “I think we should say this is the right thing to do, and we’re going to do it.” Carolyn Simpson commented that Option A “could be the solution for facilities for a

very long time,” and address all levels of education. Freshmen could return to the remodeled high school when the first phase of construction was complete, possibly in the fall of 2018, freeing up the freshman campus building for use as a middle school again. Busby was unmoved, telling the board, “I think we need a backup plan… that’s a lot of money.” She supported an approach of “… smaller increments, prioritize, get that through, don’t put everything at risk.” The next school board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 10, at Snoqualmie City Hall.

school element out, doing that first, then looking at the rest?” Yes, the board had considered it, but they had also reached consensus in August to pursue Option A, said board member Geoff Doy, who was opposed to dividing the bond. He reminded Busby and Dan Popp, also hesitant about what he called “voter appetite” for a big bond, that the board approved the start of a “vetting” process to assess community reaction to Option A back in August. “My personal view is that we need to address elementary, middle and high school,” he said, “and my personal preference would be that we do

A new fence encloses the North Bend Elementary School playground and the grassy area behind it, since the start of the school year. The sixfoot fence encompasses 109,000 square feet of school property, including the grassy area referred to as Claggett Field on some maps. Two gates, on the north and south ends, provide access to the field when school is not in session, but are closed and locked during school hours. The fence cost $12,000. The project was the result of a parents group raising concerns about children’s safety on the playground last year. Although North Bend Elementary had not reported any incidents of endangered children, nor found any hazards such as used hypodermic needles on the property, the district agreed to fund the fence in the 2013-14 budget. Another group of parents strenuously objected to the fence over the summer, saying it cut off access to a community park, and could prove more dangerous for children, such as in a disaster. Since the fence was installed, much of the controversy has died down, although some residents remain opposed to it.

Trading convenience for security at Valley schools

Why North Bend Elementary’s Claggett Field was fenced


imes change, even for what is, for me, North Bend’s coolest place. Back when I lived in downtown North Bend, the open field between Two Rivers School and North Bend Elementary, also known as Claggett Field, was the most idyllic spot in town. True, it didn’t have EJ Roberts’ dry creek or walking path, or Si View’s public amenities. But it was closer to home, and its row of stately firs beckoned for book reads and Frisbee games on Seth Truscott summer afternoons. When I Valley Record Editor hustled overdue books back to the library, I’d tour the paths and walk over the old foundations of the long-lost North Bend High School. This is the field where hundreds gather to watch the fireworks from nearby Torguson Park during the festival at Mount Si. This is where crowds cheer on youth soccer teams in the quintessential suburban sports ritual. Well, Claggett Field is different now, in a less than subtle way, with a six-foot chain link barrier. The fencing of this field, which is not a city park but school property, the week that school began was a jarring moment for the many families who use this place. And while I believe some balance still needs to be considered regarding access, I believe that the Snoqualmie Valley School District had little choice but to fence the field. That’s down to the age we now live in. Times change. Remember, kids at North Bend Elementary don’t have a playfield. Claggett Field is their field, so with Sandy Hook and the other demented outbreaks of violence spurring concern nationwide, it seemed like leaving North Bend with the one unfenced school field in the upper Valley needed to stop. I walked the field the other day, and I agree with parents that the park does need at least one more access point on Third Street. But the fence itself doesn’t ruin the park. The stately firs remain, there’s still plenty of open space, inside and outside the chain links. You can still stroll on grass around the firs. But it’s a bit of a walk inside for parents and kids arriving for youth sports in the afternoon, so a rethink might be in order on gate placement. If a school staffer is unlocking and unlocking the Snoqualmie Valley Trail gate when the bell rings, surely he or she can take an extra few minutes to unlock a second gate. We’d all better get used to things like this. As with the new closed-camera entry system at Fall City Elementary School—a pilot program aimed at improving security between open and close of school—the fence is a sign of the times. Schools have little choice but to do these things. Imagine what would happen if we did nothing, and something bad happened? The school had to err on the side of safety over convenience. For all parents to have peace of mind, it’s worth a trade-off—just a few extra steps.

STEIL: CHeesemaker FROM 1 Plus, it’s not easy to find an open time slot in one of her classes, anyway. Now in her second career—her third if you include raising a family—Steil is a success by nearly any definition you care to use. Ask her to define success, though, and you’re more likely to get a question, than an answer. “What would you do if you could not fail?” she asks. The question hangs as artwork in her Fall City home, and she says, “it’s what I live by.” When she and her husband, Rob, and sons, Kyle, Sean, Hunter and Rob Jr., moved from the Sammamish plateau to their farm just outside of Fall City eight years ago, Julie also quit her marketing job in high-rise development. She and Rob agreed on the changes because they didn’t want to be absentee parents to their boys, but she got restless. “I have so much more to give, so much more to do!” she said. She became what her husband jokingly referred to as a volunteer-aholic for a while, joining various community groups and the forerunner to the Mount Si High School PTSA, WIN, before she had a revelation. With her boys in school and fewer demands on her time, she realized, “I should do something, some hobby for me, not for the boys, not for my husband, not for our community, but something for me.” It had to be something related to food. “I love, love, love cooking, I always have,” she said, “So it was as simple as thinking ‘gosh, I wonder how you make cheese?’” Answering that question took a $200 monthly milk budget, a back yard full of old refrigerators, or “cheese aging rooms,” running on a web of extension cords, a lot of recipes downloaded from the Web and adjusted for home-sized batches, and even more patience for failed recipes. “You’ve got to start with great milk,” is what Steil learned from the experience, and she means great. Milk doesn’t have to be raw, she said, although it may help. Great milk, though, must come from mainly-grass-fed animals. “I’m still extremely careful of what milk I buy. It’s all about what

the animals eat,” she said, comparing it to the way a new mother might try to eat more healthy foods while breast-feeding her baby. “When cows are fed processed foods, processed grains, processed corn, it goes into their bodies and it comes out in the milk. When we drink that milk, or make cheese from that milk, what are we getting? All that bad saturated fat instead of good fats.” Steil says she always wants to know, and control as much as possible, what goes into her and her family’s food. That’s pretty much how she became a farmer, and possibly “the first woman in North America to milk a yak.” She couldn’t get the milk she needed locally, she said because most dairy farmers in the area had contracts to sell all their milk to Darigold. By this time, she was River Valley Cheese ( and she needed a lot of milk. The home-made cheese she’d brought to a WIN meeting one night in 2008 had caught the attention of a Whole Foods staffer and the store was now buying nearly all she could produce. She was supplying several other grocery stores, too. So, she thought, why not run her own dairy? A lot of research and many conversations with dairy farmers later she and her husband had bought “a couple of each” breed they wanted, and brought them home to the 10 acres of pasture they’d just bought, too. “It was like Noah’s Ark down there!” Steil laughs. She freely admits she didn’t really know what she was doing —and didn’t even know how to milk the animals until a neighbor taught her—but she was willing to try. And it wasn’t long before her husband banned her from going to the feed store, since she invariably came back with a pair of new critters to practice on. When she added the yak to the herd, she started getting national attention. A crew from the History Channel’s “Modern Marvels” came to the farm six years ago to film her milking one of the 14 yak (and 16 cows, 14 water buffalo, 24 sheep and 26 goats) she’d accumulated, for an episode on cheese. She called her decision to do that show, like her decision in later years not to appear on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, a business decision. “Modern Marvels” gave her great exposure, she said, but she had no control over when reruns of the show would air, which caused

Valley farmer and cheeemaker Julie Steil hopes to expand her craft through philanthropy, possibly working with abused or hungry women and showing them how to get started in her industry. problems down the road when she decided to give up the animals so she could focus on her cheese-making without exhausting herself. No yak or water buffalo meant no more of the three-milk Wild West Mozzarella described in the show, and customers who called to order it often became very angry that it was no longer available, she said. She didn’t want the potentially greater problems that could come from an appearance on Oprah, especially while her boys were still in school. “I crunched the numbers. This is how a businesswoman thinks,” she said. Her new show, expected to air this fall with Northwest Cable News, is equal parts business decision and personal passion. Each episode features Steil giving a lesson on how to make a specific type of cheese, similar to the classes she teaches each weekend, with other scenes on the farm included. That, plus her role as president of the Washington State Cheesemakers Association, are giving her the chance to answer another burning question. “How much does a gallon of milk cost? It’s cheap, right? … add the bacteria, and the coagulant, which are the only other ingredients in cheese, and you can make a pound of cheese for the cost of a gallon of milk plus 50 cents. Cheese is so inexpensive to make, and you can make some really, really good cheese with so little effort, why aren’t people making cheese? What is going on?” Steil teaches classes every week on how to make fresh and aged cheeses at home, with no special equipment. That’s how she started, of course, but the thought that she might be creating a future competitor doesn’t bother her at all. She would welcome it, she says, because there’s plenty of room for everyone’s creativity. “It’s about growing a craft,” she said. “It’s about growing our society, not keeping us backwards.” She still makes cheese, and yes, the cheesecake, every week, but she’s happy to say, “Now, my energy is all going toward growing the craft.”

Peaceful space at the Falls Salish Lodge & Spa recently unveiled The Hidden Terrace, a new space that will host Yoga by The Falls, private events and spa treatments. This temperature controlled canvas and glass enclosed tent sits atop the 268-foot waterfall and creates an outdoor experience while providing protection from the elements when necessary on that cool or wet Northwest day. Yoga by The Falls offerings include Vinyasa, gentle, and private classes led by the lodge’s newly appointed Director of Mind, Body & Spirit John Jessum, or just Jess. Trained in the Baptiste style of Vinyasa yoga, Jess’ pursuit of self-actualization arts spans 30 years and weaves his passion into the unity of the community of those who come to the mat. “I see each class as a journey of self-discovery where each participant uses breath as a guide to learn more about themselves individually and the world in which we live,” said Jess. “The opportunity to practice in a space like the Hidden Terrace that’s so close to nature yet protected from the elements is truly an unmatched experience.” Additionally, returning to the rejuvenated Hidden Terrace is the spa’s Moonlight Massage.

Watch out for lottery scams, AG warns Attorney General Bob Ferguson and officials from Washington’s Lottery are bringing attention to lottery scams. Individuals and groups are calling and e-mailing victims on a more regular basis with the goal of tricking people into thinking they’ve won a lottery prize, according to Ferguson’s office. The goal of lottery scammers is to convince victims to provide personal information or pay fake “processing fees” and “taxes” through a wire transfer or money order. In most cases, if the scam is successful the money can’t be recovered as many lottery scams are conducted by parties living outside the United States. It is very difficult to track these criminals and even more difficult to successfully prosecute them. To learn more, visit the website of the Attorney General,

Wildcat spikers down Bellevue The Mount Si varsity volleyball squad is 4-1 in league, 8-4 overall after beating Bellevue on the road, Wednesday, Sept. 25. Mount Si won 25-22, 20-25, 25-23, 21-25, 15-13. Standout performances included Lindsay Carr’s 29 kills, three aces and 10 digs, Anna McCreadie’s 16 kills and four digs, and Courtney Carr’s two kills, 46 assists, and three digs. Kaitlyn Van Cise had four aces and 18 digs. Liz Larson had two kills and six digs. Katie Larson had two aces and eight digs, and Jenn Rogers had six digs in the match. Haley Holmberg had one kill, two aces and eight digs. Sydney Young and Sara Brevick each had a kill. Mount Si hosts Liberty tonight (October 2) and Juanita on Monday. Game time is 7 p.m.

Red Wolves run well at Samm Invite Cedarcrest’s cross country squad competed Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Bellevue Invite at Lake Sammamish State Park. With rain falling for all six hours of the event, the grass turned to mud, puddles got big and feet got wet, and with hundreds of runners taking part, conditions got worse as the day got long. At Bellevue, varsity runners are split into races depending their position on their squad. Each school’s number 7 and 8 runners race together, then the 5 and 6s, and so on. Cedarcrest’s boys finished eighth as a team, the girls taking 12th. Both were the first 2A team, only beaten by larger schools. Athletes of the meet were Gage Catherman, Josh Zimmerman and Maddy Buckmaster. All three had their best races of the season in spite of the weather.

One stroke at a time Swimmers making gains on Wildcats’ inaugural squad By Seth Truscott Editor

Ashley Cole blasts into the water from the board, chasing the clock in this relay race. A good start means a better time for Cole, a Mount Si sophomore motivated by both team spirit, fitness and a personal drive. “I’m trying to improve,” says Cole. Like the rest of this brand new Valley swim team, she’s succeeding, one stroke at a time. Mount Si held the last of its four front-loaded home

meets Thursday, Sept. 26, at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge pool. With no seniors, juniors have been leading the pack. The team’s fastest swimmers, Jessica Brady, Kelly McCracken and Emma Gieseke are grabbing lots of thirds and fourths and some second-places. Mount Si’s 200-yard medley relay squad has been consistent in the early season around 2:25, claiming third against Roosevelt on Sept. 13. Gieseke, McCracken, Sadie Woolf and Zoie Bel have led the Wildcats in the 200 freestyle. Brady has been Mount Si’s 200 yard individual medley leader, clocking an average time of two minutes, 40 seconds. Ashley Cole, Maddie Hager and Bel have been placing in the 50 yard freestyle. Also, Murial Ross, Brooke Presnall, Maddy Privatsky and Hallie Lynn have been climbing into the top eight placings in the 100 yard freestyle. “It’s more individual improvement” that matters, says freshman Maddy Privatsky. “I feel like I improved a lot,” says Privatsky, who came out to condition for basketball and loved the sport.

Real country Mount Si Cross Country runners test their skills on a challenging home course By Seth Truscott Editor

The final approach through the tall grass was the biggest challenge for boys leader Devin Sharp. The senior, who finished first for Mount Si with a time of 18:36, 10th overall against Juanita and Sammamish on Wednesday, Sept. 25, had his first run on the course at Mountain Meadows Farm in North Bend. It’s the second year for the team on this scenic, rural location, and it tested Sharp and the rest of the team in many ways. At Mountain Meadows, bracing scenery competed for attention with tall grass and molehills. Mount Si girls ran first, winning as a team. Hannah Waskom finished second overall with a time of 20:17, Lindsey Sydnor and Ellie Bruce took fifth and sixth, and Sydney Leonard took eighth. See COUNTRY, 11 Seth Truscott/Staff Photo

A lot of swimmers improved at last Thursday’s meet, thanks to the summer-like afternoon weather. By contrast, Tuesday’s meet with Ballard was slower due to the wintry cold. Mount Si’s four home meets were all scheduled early this season, due to their

COUNTRY FROM 10 Following Sharps, Mount Si’s boys came in a pack: Jonny Gendro was 12th with 18:56, Sean Hecker was 13th with 19:05, Hunter Franklin was 14th with 19:09, Grant Baker was 15th with 19:23, and Spencer Ricks was 18th with 19:52. Jackson Stokes was 19th with 20:03. Mount Si’s typical practice runs are mostly flat and fast. Open meadows and elk territory is a new experience. “It’s a really good course, except for the mole hills. Be really careful,” said Sydnor. “It’s a beautiful place,” said Sean Hecker. “Don’t think about the course. Put it in the

needs to practice hard and hit her time targets. Brady is the mentor, says team manager Nicole Wood. She’s older, charismatic, and “has been doing this since she was little.” “This season has been good,” says the upbeat Brady. “Everybody is making big improvements in their stroke and their times. We’ve seen some awesome team spirit, and some great sportsmanship. Everybody’s having a lot of fun, which is, of course, fantastic.” • Follow the team at mshsswimanddive.

back of your head, and look at the guy in front of you.” “Don’t start off too slow,” suggested Gendro, because this course takes longer than your typical 5K. Waskom, the fast freshman, made a goal of competing and strategizing her race, conserving energy at the beginning and aiming for consistency. Her second place finish felt good. She had her eye on some competitors who left her behind early on. “I wanted to come back and try to get with them at the end,” Waskom said. “I was able to do that.” She ran in middle school, and with an outside club, Speed Unlimited of Bellevue. “I run because I like it. It’s the only sport I do. I’m pretty dedicated to it.” Senior Sydney Leonard came out for her first season. She’s building the perseverance of running distance races, and learning how to keep the pace and be competitive with a tightknit, spirited bunch. Leonard has the idea of doing triathlons, and sees this



late entry to the league, combined with their outdoor pool. Bad weather can be discouraging, and the pool isn’t always warm. “But you get through it,” says McCracken. There’s competitiveness, but it’s “good competition.... We just cheer for everyone. All the teams cheer for each other.” “That’s the best part of swimming,” added Brady. On Thursday, McCracken dropped seven seconds in her freestyle 100 and 50 performances. “I would like to get a KingCo time,” said the junior. To get there, she knows she

Betty ‘BJ’ Libby

Betty ‘BJ’ Libby left us suddenly for her “final journey” on September 21, 2013. She was born in Limestone, Maine on February 29, 1948. BJ loved the fact that she was a Leap Year baby and only had a birthday every 4 years. Technically, she was only 16¼ years old when she passed. She grew up on a potato farm and shared fond memories of that her entire life. Her passion to travel took her to places such as Japan, Okinawa, Australia, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Germany, Azores, Italy, Turkey, France, Czech Republic, England, Ireland, Belgium, Switzerland, Portugal and many places within the United States. She always loved meeting new people while surrounding herself in the culture of every place she visited. BJ started off her career working at Chapman College then later as assistant editor of a magazine. Following that she transitioned to working for the Girl Scouts of the USA. She ended her career at the Mt. Si Senior Center. She had a very caring heart and her passion was to help those in need. When someone came into the senior center and required assistance she would drop everything to assist them.Whether that meant helping a homeless person passing through who desperately needed a warm meal or some shoes and a warm coat or a senior who needed mobility equipment and didn’t know where to turn. BJ never judged and always made everyone feel welcome. Keeping busy through her job, gardening and making jam each summer for family and friends, helping her family with many projects or camping in the backyard with her grandsons was what she loved to do. She enjoyed every moment and appreciated the time with her grandchildren. BJ is survived by her daughter, Dakarie Johndro and son in law, Reid Geck along with her grandsons Riley Geck, Kyler Geck and Brayden Geck all of Snoqualmie, Washington. BJ is also survived by her sisters Jeri Beaulieu and her husband Peter Beaulieu of Limestone, Maine, Joy Gustin and her husband Ken Gustin of Hermon, Maine, Kim Clark and her husband Paul Clark of Audubon, New Jersey and brother Jeff Libby of Limestone, Maine. She will be missed by many of her friends and family around the world and would say to all, “Love life, be brave.” She never wanted a funeral upon her death but rather she preferred a party to celebrate her life.The celebration will be set for a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Mt. Si Food Bank @ 122 E. 3rd St, North Bend, WA 98045 or contribute directly on their website at www. Please sign the on-line guest book at 886016
