Glee T. McCauley, 95, died Oct. 18, 2011, in Enumclaw.
She was born Jan. 29, 1916, to Joseph F, Gallanger and Susie M, Cochran on Lopez Island, Wash. She grew up on the Gallanger farm, where there was always work to be done and children to play with. Her life changed greatly after her father died when she was 14. She moved to Seattle and lived with her sister and worked for her room and board. She and Lew McCauley married in Seattle on Jan. 4, 1933.
They returned to Lopez Island to live for a few years and moved to Lynden, Wash., for a short time before going to Black Diamond. She was an active and hard working mother and an avid gardener. The family later moved to Ellensburg, came to Enumclaw in 1953 and spent four years in Alaska in the early 1960s before returning here. She liked to crochet and made many beautiful doilies and afghans.
She is survived by children Bob and wife Stella, Marlene and husband Bernie Martin, Dale and wife Alice, and Daryl and wife Norine; 12 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and 24 great-great-grandchildren.
