Sutherland, Karen Anne  
KAREN ANNE (KELLY) (LAIDLAW) SUTHERLAND 1943 ~ 2016 Karen grew up in the Chicago area, graduated from Taft High School in 1960, moved to Vancouver, WA in 1978, and supported her family as a salesperson until she retired in 1996. She married her best friend Dave Sutherland on Aug. 12, 1989. She died of a sudden, acute lung problem which did not respond to treatment. Karen loved people! She was always taking people into her heart, at times even her home, from friends of her kids to co-workers to people she met in her volunteer work. Karen was in her element hosting huge family gatherings where she led the festivity with her raucous laughter, her wise-cracking tongue, and her open heart. She was making jokes to the last. Even difficulty breathing couldn't keep her natural love and laughter from pouring out of her. Her generous heart motivated her to volunteer for many organizations: Women Helping Women, Trauma Intervention Program, the Humane Society, and pet therapy with her dog Sammy. But Karen was most passionate about helping people grieve. She did this for children at the Dougy Center and for adults at Hospice Southwest and for pet owners in a group she started. Karen is survived by her husband, Dave Sutherland; their 7 combined children and their spouses; 19 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; her sister, Linda Sak; and countless others who call her family. Viewing Thursday, July 28th, 12-9p.m.; Service Friday, July 29th, 10:00 a.m.; at Evergreen Memorial Gardens. Donations to Hospice Southwest in lieu of flowers.

Cortese, Rocci Richard  
ROCCI RICHARD CORTESE April 28, 1918 ~ July 10, 2016 Born in San Jose, California 98 years ago to Italian immigrants, as a child Rocci lived in New York and San Jose, CA. He lived through the Great Depression and as a child had to spend some time in orphanages due to family illnesses. His family settled in San Jose, California where he graduated high school. His great passion was baseball of which he played semi pro for years. As a young boy, he met the Great Babe Ruth and used to sit at a neighbors porch waiting for the morning newspaper so he could read about the baseball games. As an adult, he entered the Navy and during WWII he served on a troop carrier ship in the south pacific which brought him to many islands including Iwo Jima and Guam. After WWII, he returned to California and worked for the National Can Corporation where he met his wife and was married for 63 years. He was promoted to Warehouse Foreman and moved his young family to Vancouver, WA where he retired from the company after 40 years. Rocci was a social butterfly as he returned to San Jose for nearly every high school class reunion into his 80's. He was a lady's man and took fashion cues from no one, still wearing his Italian style leather shoes until the end. He loved gambling the horse races, good wine, opera music, and growing perfect tomatoes. Rocci was happiest when all the family gathered for a good old fashioned spaghetti dinner. He was definitely the thread that held our family together. He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary, in 2011 and is survived by his grown children, John, Roxanne, Richard, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Instead of flowers, please do an act of kindness in Rocci's name; after all it does not take fame or fortune to be remembered, only a kind heart. He will always be remembered as the man we called dad. Committal Service, 11-11:30 am, Monday, August 1, 2016, Military Honors, Willamette National Cemetery, 11800 SE Mt. Scott Blvd., Portland, OR.

Harlow, Margaret Eunice  
MARGARET EUNICE (WHITE) HARLOW March 17, 1926 ~ July 16, 2016 Margaret W. Harlow, age 90, departed on July 16, 2016, in her residence at The Quarry Senior Living in Vancouver, WA, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born Margaret Eunice White in 1926 in Mt. Pleasant, TX, the daughter of Thomas White and Rosa Thompson, the ninth of ten children. Margaret was referred to as an "extraordinary woman" by those who knew her well. She found true love twice in her life. At the age of 21, she wed John W. Harlow. At 82, several years following Johnny's death, Margaret became friends with and wed widower, Emil Johnson. After surviving the loss of two husbands, breast cancer, and a stroke at age 86, Margaret took up residence at The Quarry where for three years she lived a very full life that included many varied activities, family gatherings, and parties, including the Super Bowl. Margaret was a BIG Denver Broncos fan. Her life was memorialized and celebrated at her 90th birthday party this past March. Margaret was preceded in death by her 5 brothers, 4 sisters, and her two late husbands, John Harlow and Emil Johnson. She is survived by her three step-brothers, Orville, Gordon and Billy White. This powerhouse of a woman left a legacy of two daughters, Bobbie Jean Harlow Combe and Wanda Sue Dunn; six beautiful grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, who were the highlights of her life. Fiercely independent, with a formidable can-do attitude, Margaret was impossible to keep down, and after a series of falls, succumbed to a broken back. She will be missed! Her rich, beautiful journey continues. Please sign her Guest Book at www.columbian.com/obits .
