Lilly “Lil” Michelsen

Omak, WA

Lilly “Lil” Michelsen, 71, of Omak, died Tuesday evening, February 4, 2014, at University Hospital in Seattle of complications due to a “Silent Heart Attack”. She was born on August 2, 1942, in Odessa, WA, to Morgan and Lilas Chambers. At the age of 15, she moved with her family to Twisp, WA. Lil attended school for one year in Twisp, and then the family moved to Okanogan, where she graduated from Okanogan High School in 1960. After graduation, she worked at the telephone company as a telephone operator. Lil married Bob Michelsen on October 15, 1960. They moved to Oroville, WA, where Bob owned and operated the Chevron station. They moved back to Omak, WA in 1966, and purchased an orchard in 1968. During that time, Lil worked at the Seafirst Bank in Okanogan for several years. They downsized in 1994, and moved to their current location on Elmway. Lil enjoyed going to yard sales, selling antiques and collectables at Apple Annie Antique Gallery in Cashmere, WA, researching family tree (Genealogy) information, quilting and traveling.

Survivors include her husband, Bob; a son, Dean (Anna) Michelsen and their children, Daniel, Katrina and Emilia, all of Black Diamond, WA; a daughter, Kay (Greg) Boatright and their children, Nicole, Danielle and Erin, all of East Wenatchee, WA; one brother, Dave (Phyllis) Chambers of Okanogan; first cousin, Bonnie Morehouse of Soap Lake; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Don and Joan Michelsen, Marlene Ragland, and Richard and Janice Benjamin, all of Omak; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel in Okanogan, WA on Thursday, February 13, 2014. Donations may be given to the Okanogan County Historical Society. Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel is caring for the arrangements.
