    Shared Memories

     

    Irene Margaret Harvey, 98, passed away in Everett, WA on April 29, 2017.  She was a resident of Potlatch and Shelton, WA for over 55 years. Irene was born in Devils Lake, ND on May 13, 1918 and was the only child of her adoptive parents, Peter and Mae McAleer. Her childhood was spent on her parents' farm in Williams Co. and Bottineau Co., ND. At the early age of 17 Irene entered college in Great Falls, MT where she graduated after two years with a teacher's certificate. She then taught in a one room school house in ND for three years.  

    She moved to Seattle in 1941 at the start of WWII, and worked at Boeing. In 1943 she met her partner in life, Robert C. "Bob" Harvey, and they were married in Seattle on January 22, 1944. Irene and Bob bought the thirty cabin Tillicum Beach Resort on Hood Canal in Potlatch, WA in 1956, where they raised their three boys. They subdivided and sold the cabins starting in 1967 but remained at Tillicum Beach.

    Irene returned to teaching in 1956 and taught 4th and 6th grades at Evergreen Elementary in Shelton and then the 5th grade at Hood Canal School on the Skokomish Reservation. To update her teaching credentials for the State of Washington, she attended Seattle University...

    Donations in memory of Irene maybe me made to St. Mark Parish School, 18033 15th Pl NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
