Marlene Graham | Obituary

Marlene “Marti” Gra- ham, 83, of North Bend, Washington sadly passed away Sunday, July 18, 2021. A resident of North Bend, WA since 1969, Marti was a treasured friend and beloved mother. She is survived by son Paul Alltounian, 62, of North Bend, Wa and daugh- ter Valerie Alltounian, 53, also of North Bend, Wa. She also leaves behind her beloved pup, Tommy, who she adored.

Born in Detroit, MI, Marti moved here with her former husband, now deceased, Dr. Paul Cogo. She had resided in the same house they purchased in 1969. Marti loved gardening, baking, cooking, sewing and all of her many pets through the years. She was long retired from her position as executive secretary at Boeing. Marti’s laugh, sense of humor, generous nature and kindness will be sorely missed. She was a darn good friend!

A celebration of life will be held in her honor in Snoqualmie on August 23 from 2 until 4 p.m. at the Snoqualmie Valley Eagles, 8200 Railroad Ave., Snoqualmie, Wa.
