  2. I knew Maverette mostly through the eyes of her adoring husband, Bill. I worked at the visitor center in Bellingham where Bill volunteered for more then 25 years. The loving and caring way he spoke about his wife impressed me. I knew they had a special marriage. It was evident that they took good care of each other. He liked to take her out to dinner and she made sure Bill had proper nutrition. I still laugh at the times Bill would sneak a little treat at the visitor center knowing she would disapprove. Bill also shared that she was afraid of spiders and other insects. He would do all he could to keep them away and had some amusing stories! During the times I met her I admired her attractive appearance (she knew how to take care of herself!) and her pleasant manner. But most of all it is Bill’s love of his wife that helps me see the good things in life. Sending love and prayers, Cheryl Collins.
