Barbara Scribner

     Barbara Ann Scribner passed away unexpectedly on May 10, 2020, following complications from surgery.

  Barb was born June 19, 1932, on Orcas Island, where she grew up and graduated from high school. She married Bill Scribner in 1950 and they lived on San Juan Island until moving with their two children, Rick and Joanie, to Bellingham in 1957.

  Barb worked in retail for many years as an interior decorator and was owner of Barb’s Interiors when she retired. Barb was a sharp card player and loved all kinds of card games, but it wasn’t until her mid-70s that she found a passion for duplicate bridge that she enjoyed right up until her hospitalization.

  Barb was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; her son-in-law, Don Whitener; and her brother, Bob Curtis.

  She is survived by her son, Rick (Jean) Scribner, daughter, Joanie Whitener; grandsons Kevin (Sue) Whitener and Eric (Kelli) Whitener and granddaughter Margie (Elizabeth) Scribner Greene; great-grandchildren Violet, Adeline, Carson, Finley and Nolan; and her sisters, Jean Norton and Arlene Colombo.

  Thank-you to all of Barb’s many friends, neighbors and bridge partners who sent thoughts and prayers to her during her illness.

  A private family service was held at Greenacres Memorial Park.
