North Bend's Ivalee Widrig dies at home

Ivalee Widrig was born July 21, 1919, and died April 26, peacefully, at home.

She recently had fallen and broken her hip.

Ivalee and her family moved to the Valley in the early 1960s. She started going to Si View Pool, where she soon started to teach swimming.

A few years later, she decided to become a certified nursing assistant and worked many years at North Bend Transitional Center and Marionwood in Issaquah.

From 1990 to 2003, she finished her working days at the North Bend McDonald’s.

In between taking care of her husband, Albert, of 54 years, she enjoyed her days at the Mount Si Senior Center and all the trips they took.

Ivalee and Albert had six children, 16 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
