A brother, Kelly Mark was born in McMinnville, Oregon in 1961. Next came twins, a girl, Dellene (Jeffery), and a boy, Delmar (Jennifer) born in 1964 at McMinnville, Oregon. There are many Nieces and Nephews from these brothers and sisters, and their spouses. Barbara met her husband, Frank, in January of 1969, and they were married on April 8, 1969 at Lynwood Chapel, Twin Falls, Idaho. April of this year, 2024 would have been 55 years of Marriage. Barbara had her first child. April Burlson on January 19, 1967 at Newburg, Oregon. A second child, Shannon, followed on August 21, 1969.

There are 8 Grandchildren, and 13 Great Grandchildren, plus many, many Nieces and Nephews.When Barbara was growing up, the family followed the Fruit and Vegetable harvests across the United States. As soon as they were able, the children joined their parents in picking these fruits and vegetables, adding to the family funds. A rough life, but one that taught the benefit of a hard day’s work. After marriage, she continued this example, working as a housekeeper. She was an accomplished seamstress, making quilts, as well as clothing for her children. She was also good at making jewelry and "knick-knacks", selling a few pieces, but giving much of it away to her friends and coworkers. She also enjoyed painting, either in oil or pastel. She was a good hunter, and an excellent shot. Not only shooting, but also, preparing the food for the table or the freezer. She ran a game bird processing business for a few years as well, during the game bird seasons. Ducks, Geese, Partridge, Pheasant, and Sage Chickens, as well as the occasional Rabbit were quick work in her hands. If it was legal to hunt, she would process it!

Bellevue, WA

John (Jack) Gerard Roark, of Bellevue, passed away on Sunday February 18, 2024. Jack was born on October 3, 1931, in Seattle, Washington, the fourth of five children born to William F. and Jeanette L. Roark. Jack grew up on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. He attended St. Joseph’s School, Seattle Preparatory School, Seattle University, and the University of Washington.Jack started working at Benson’s Mission Pharmacy on Capitol Hill as a teenager. He continued working at “the Mish” through college and after his 1957 graduation from the UW School of Pharmacy. In 1968 Jack went to work for Austin & Hendrickson (A&H) Drugs.Faith and family were the two most important things to Jack. Jack married the love of his life, Maude Oeser, in Seattle’s St. James Cathedral on June 27, 1959. They lived on Capitol Hill for the first few years of marriage and welcomed their first daughter, Molly, there. In 1963, with the impending arrival of second daughter Monica, the family moved to Bellevue to the house Jack has lived in ever since. Their third daughter Colleen, and only son Chris arrived over the next few years to round out the family.Whether celebrating holidays, life’s milestones, family vacations, or a backyard barbeque, Jack thoroughly enjoyed get-togethers with his family. He especially looked forward to events that included extended family. Jack found great joy in and was very proud of all of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.The seeds for Jack’s devotion to his Catholic faith were planted early. As a very young lad, his mother would put him in a taxicab before the break of dawn and send him to Holy Names Academy to serve as an altar boy at the sisters’ early morning Mass. When Jack finally retired from his pharmaceutical career in 2000, he began attending daily Mass, rarely missing one over the next 20+ years and attending “on his phone” when not able to attend in person.Jack and Maude were members of St. Louise Parish since moving to Bellevue in 1963. Jack served as an usher at St. Louise for decades. Post retirement, he served on the church decorating crew, and as a sacristan.Jack leaves behind his three daughters: Molly Johnson, Monica (Greg) Carlin, Colleen (Rob) Nicklos; son Chris (Nikki) Roark; ten grandchildren: Jimmy (Berit) Johnson, Julie (Cory) Ponder, Rex Carlin, Blair Carlin, Hannah Nicklos, Joe (Natalie) Johnson, Cameron (Iola) Nicklos, Trent Carlin, Zachary Roark, Nicholas Roark; five great grandchildren: Colin and Clara Johnson, Casey John and Abby Ponder, and Jovanni Meza-Johnson; sisters-in-law Mildred Prevost and Helen Roark; and numerous loving nephews and nieces, notably Sharon Nelson Smith who was as devoted as a daughter.Jack is ecstatic to be reunited with the love of his life, Maude, his parents, brothers Ed and Tom, sisters Jeannette Nelson and Mary Teresa, granddaughter Delaney Nicklos, and tons of dear relatives and friends who preceded him to their eternal reward.Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday February 29, 2024, at St. Louise Catholic Church, 141 156th Ave SE, Bellevue, WA; preceded by Rosary at 10:15 a.m. Burial following at Calvary Cemetery, 5041 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA.The family suggests remembrances to St. Louise Parish.

Isabel Velasquez

Jun 17, 1925 - Feb 07, 2024

location-icon

Bellevue, WA

It is with deep sorrow and immense love that we announce the passing of Isabel “Belen” Velasquez on February 7, 2024 at the age of 98 years. After coming down with pneumonia in late January, Belen spent her final days in peace surrounded by family at Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue, Washington. Belen’s family will cherish their memories of her: daughter, Evangeline “Angie” Pineda of North Bend, WA; grandchildren, Miguel Concepcion (and wife Lynda) of Lakeland, FL, Elizabeth Garrido (and partner Craig) of New Braintree, MA, Monica Concepcion (and partner Peter) of Somerville, MA, Jose Pineda III (and wife Riza) of Staten Island, NY, and Camille Biggins (and husband Sam) of North Bend, WA; and great-grandchildren, Charles, Jacob, Valentine, Jose IV, and Jaelynn. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jose “Pepe” Pineda Sr.; children, Elizabeth “Baby” Concepcion and Jose “Boy” Pineda Jr.; and sister, Remedios “Remy” Santamaria. Belen was born on June 17, 1925 in Manila, Philippines, to Beneta and Adriano Velasquez. At the tender age of 7 Belen led her younger sister to safety following their mother’s untimely death during childbirth. They fled to a Catholic convent and orphanage where they grew up until they came of age. In her youth Belen enjoyed playing volleyball and dreamt of becoming a journalist but she never had the opportunity to finish college. Due to their orphanhood, Belen and Remy were compelled to move north to Cabanatuan City in the Nueva Ecija province to seek refuge from a maternal aunt. Belen eventually married Pepe in the early 1940s in the midst of World War II. As she mourned the stillbirth of her first child, Belen dedicated her life to the success and security of her three remaining children, Baby, Boy, and Angie. From their humble beginnings in a provincial nipa hut, all three children went on to graduate from prominent Philippine universities as a result of Belen’s magnificent devotion. In 1981 Belen unexpectedly moved to the United States with the help of the American Red Cross to spend the rest of her life near her son, whom she had to lay to rest in California. She began building a successful career as a life insurance agent for Prudential and was nationally recognized. Soon after, however, Belen was called upon once more to help Angie raise her daughter, Camille, in Torrance, California. In 1995 the family of three relocated to Auburn, Washington, as part of Angie’s career with World Vision. Belen, Angie, and Camille shared some of their fondest memories together as a small, multigenerational family of women. Eventually, starting in 2015, Belen spent her final years at a loving adult family home in Bellevue, Washington. Belen was an extraordinary woman whose biblical influence was felt in all the lives she touched. She was as renowned for her tenacity, eloquence, and conviction as she was for her exquisite natural beauty. But Belen Velasquez was known for her maternal love most of all. Belen’s family will hold dear many memories from her life, including her love of lush gardens perfumed with roses and adorned with a Blessed Virgin grotto; assembling collages from fashion magazines and family photos; sculpting the perfect brow with a good pencil; playing timeless European and Filipino classics on the piano; and, of course, all things Catholic. The gift and sanctuary of her presence will not only be missed, but remembered forever. A funeral service in Belen’s honor will be held on Thursday, February 22, 2024 at 1:00 PM, at Bonney Watson Funeral Home, 16445 International Blvd, SeaTac, WA 98188. The family wishes to thank Gabriela Deaconu, Colleen, and staff, as well as Overlake Medical Center staff, for their compassionate, steadfast care of Belen.
