Joseph Davenport Lindgren

February 9, 1929 ~ April 20, 2014

Joseph Davenport Lindgren was born February 9, 1929 in Warwick, NY. He passed away Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014. As a young man, Joe visited Washington state and fell in love with the northwest and stayed. He worked at Alcoa in Wenatchee for a time and attended Wenatchee Valley College. He transferred to Central Washington College at Ellensburg and graduated with a teaching degree in 1959. He got a job teaching in the elementary schools on Mercer Island, working with fourth and fifth graders. He spent his entire teaching career there and retired in 1990. On December 17, 1960, he married Deloris Shrable from Brewster. They were married 53 years. As a young adult, Joe committed his life to Christ. He was a longtime member of Eastridge Church in Issaquah.

Joe is survived by his wife, Deloris; son, Allan of Bothell; and daughters, Patti (Craig) Harper of Omak and Sandi (Nathan) Smith of Spokane. Three grandchildren survive: Jayson and Linda Harper of Omak and Javin Smith of Spokane.

His last few days were spent at Evergreen Hospice Care Center in Kirkland. The family was extremely blessed with the care and attention given to Joe.

Graveside Services will be held at Locust Grove Cemetery in Brewster, WA on Friday, May 2, 2014, at 11:30 a.m. A Memorial Service is planned for a later date at Eastridge Church in Issaquah. Instead of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Evergreen Hospice Care Center at 12040 N.E. 128th Street, Kirkland, WA 98034-3098 or a charity of choice. Services are entrusted to Barnes Chapel of Brewster, WA. Please leave your memories and condolences for the family at www.barneschapel.com.
