George Devere Day

April 15, 1925 ~ June 8, 2014

George Devere Day, 89, of East Wenatchee, WA, passed on at his home on June 8, 2014, after some weeks of illness. George was born to George Thomas Day and Minnie Gayle (Gilbert) Day on April 15, 1925, in Leavenworth, WA at the family home. George will be remembered as a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. George happily served in the Marine Corps as an MP and has always been a proud veteran. He enjoyed playing the organ, drawing cartoons, painting scenes, boating, fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, repairing the house and painting whatever needed a fresh coat. He loved joking with and playing jokes on his brothers. He owned the Rainbow station in Oroville in the 50’s, worked on a tugboat on the Columbia River at Kettle Falls, owned and operated the Big Y Cafe, and served as Foreman at Cascadian Fruit Shippers, where he retired.

George was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Nellie (Jmaeff) Day; six brothers and sisters; and his daughter, Marilyn (Day) Anderson Labonte. He is survived by a brother, Jerry Day; a sister, Carolyn (Day) Fuson; son, Michael E. Day of Anacortes, WA; daughters, Cheryle L. Perry of Oroville, WA and Kathryn I. Hayden of Snohomish, WA; sons-in-law, Lynn C. Perry, Ron Hayden, and Andre Labonte; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all of whom he greatly cared for.

Graveside Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014, at Cashmere City Cemetery with Military Honors. Visitation will be held from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 13, 2014, at Jones & Jones~Betts Funeral Home in Wenatchee.
