William L. Davis
January 27, 1915 – January 27, 2012
Bill Davis, 97, of Sequim passed away January 27, 2012 after a lifetime of world travel and adventure. As a young man, Bill was often told he resembled Clark Gable, a movie star of the era. Another thespian comparison that can be made is that he lived his life in three distinct “acts” beginning with his birth in Vallejo, California followed quickly by a family move to Walnut Grove, Missouri. The second act began with Bill’s work in the Civil Conservation Corps from its inception. He then transferred to the Army Civil Service and on to the Navy where he served aboard the PBY Catalina flying boats. A long and illustrious career in the foreign service followed. He worked in Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, Sudan, Liberia and others. It was during this second part of Bill’s life that he met the love of his life, Betty Shuen Lee Davis, who sadly preceded him in death after a 52-year union.
Blessed with exceptional genes, Bill’s third act, his retirement years, lasted 37 years, all of it in what he considered Paradise – Sequim. He loved his and Betty’s ten-acre homestead across from Bell Hill, which he hiked daily when not engaged in cutting seemingly endless cords of firewood. Bill thoroughly enjoyed this time, criss-crossing the country by trailer visiting his six children and his many friends. A joiner all his life, Bill was a dedicated Rotarian, and a member of the Elks, the Olympic Association of Naval Aviation, the American Legion, and the VFW. He and Betty particularly enjoyed their many friends in Sequim.
Bill is survived by his six children, Leonard and Michael Davis, Dolores Olson, Linda Warnock from his first marriage, Patrick and Noy Davis from his marriage to Betty, 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grand son. He also leaves two brothers, Skip and Foster Davis.
Bill Davis will be laid to rest at 2pm on January 31, 2012 at the Sequim View Cemetery with military honors. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Betty L. Davis scholarship fund of the Sequim Rotary Club.

Jane spent her childhood in Vancouver, Washington, and later in Odessa,Texas. Jane met Jerry Glass in Odessa and they were married June 20, 1952.
Jane and Jerry spent many years in Houston, Texas, where Jane was a housewife, raising their son and daughter ― Jerry Jr. (Rusty) and Katy. In 1972, they moved to England for Jerry’s job. They spent many happy years traveling through England and Europe, also living a short while in Stavanger, Norway. They returned to the U.S. In 1980 to settle in the beautiful Northwest that Jane so fondly remembered from her childhood.
In the early 1980s, Jane and Jerry started The Tudor Inn; the first fully licensed bed and breakfast in Port Angeles. It was their dream after staying in many B&Bs during their time in Europe. Jane enjoyed filling the Inn with antiques that she and Jerry collected while living in Europe. Jane was a natural at innkeeping, spending her time meeting and greeting guests, cooking breakfast and baking goodies. Jane continued to run the B&B after Jerry’s passing in 1995. Just prior to her selling the Inn and retiring, Jane met Bud Chritchfield. They bought a house together in Sunland and spent many wonderful vacations in Mexico and Europe. In her retirement years, Jane loved spending time with friends on long walks and lunches, playing bridge, and listening to live musical performances. Jane also fulfilled her dream of learning to play the piano. Jane never met a stranger; she was so full of life and inquisitive.
Jane is preceded in death by her husband Jerry Glass, and brothers John Gorrell and Bill Gorrell. She is survived by her son Jerry Glass Jr. of Sequim and daughter Katy Crofts and husband Adrian Crofts (formerly Stansifer) of Olympia and four grandchildren; her partner Bud Critchfield and his children Denise, Craig, Karen, Jennifer, Janice and eight grandchildren.
