Marilyn Ann Hash

Enumclaw resident Marilyn Ann Hash died in her home on May 14, 2016, after battling cancer for more than 15 years. She was 82.

She was born Sept. 5, 1933, to Marie and Lynn Young in Hastings, Neb. The family lived in Southern California for several years before moving to Redmond, Wash., where she graduated from Lake Washington High School. She then supported herself through college, earning a bachelor’s degree in education from Western Washington College of Education where she met her future husband, Cliff Hash. They married on June 12, 1955, in Bothell, Wash. They moved to Enumclaw, her husband’s hometown, to teach for the Enumclaw School District and raise their family. For most of her career, she taught reading at the junior high and middle school level. In retirement, she spent time with family, especially her grandchildren, and was a dedicated volunteer for the Enumclaw Police Auxiliary and its Cops For Kids Christmas gift program. She was also committed to fighting cancer and supporting the American Cancer Society through Relay For Life and was honored to be named a Hero of Hope. She loved camping, traveling, spending time on Hood Canal and winters in Phoenix, quilting, crafting, sewing, stitching, making cards and cooking. She made friends easily and was like a mother/grandmother to many.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Vicki and Doug Wales of Sammamish, Wash.; daughter Shelly Veazey of Lake Tapps; eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Cliff Hash; brother Jack Young; and son Scott Hash.

A memorial service is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday, May 23, at Calvary Presbyterian Church in Enumclaw. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to a charity of the donor’s choice.
