Marian graduated from Maryknoll High School and the University of Hawaii, where she then worked for several years as an entomology researcher with the late Professor D.E. Hardy, and as a scientific illustrator, before marrying and moving to the mainland. In 1961, the family moved to Edmonds, Washington, where she was an active volunteer for the school district, preparing outdoor environmental lessons for elementary students. Over the years Marian also co-taught classes as a volunteer in the horticulture program at Edmonds Community College, volunteered at the University of Washington in botany, zoology and at the Burke Museum, and for a year at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Since 1972 the family has resided in ShoreIine, Washington, where Marian became a more active gardener on her larger, nearly one-acre lot. She developed this into one of the finest gardens in the City of Shoreline, with many rare and native plants, where each May up to 140 rhododendron plants are in bloom simultaneously, and where she hosted horticulture classes and visiting botanists and plant enthusiasts. She was widely known and especially appreciated in the Seattle plant community for her generous gifts of plants and seeds to both individuals and public gardens. “Her garden was her resum�.” Donations in Marian’s memory are invited to the D.

Lawrence G. Brown

Posted On September 11th, 2014 -

9-11 LAWRENCE G. BROWNLAWRENCE G. BROWN It is with great sadness that the family of Lawrence G. Brown marks his passing on July 13, 2014. His humor, intelligence, and courage were unmatched. Born in Warsaw, Poland in the 1920s, his youth, filled with horses and hunting, was cut short by World War II. The British and Russians trained him in espionage, subversion and guerrilla warfare. He led small teams on 17 missions behind enemy lines, parachuting, driving or flying into Nazi-occupied Poland. He was wounded five times. As the war neared its end, he retrained and led an infantry battalion to break through German lines south of the Oder-Neisse junction, a critical battle in the push to Berlin. He led his men into intense fighting in the Battle of Zittau. Larry received Poland’s highest military decoration for heroism, the Order Wojenny Virtuti Militari – the Polish equivalent of the U.S. Medal of Honor. After the war, which claimed his Swedish mother, he came to the United States where his father lived. He graduated from the Rhodes School in New York City and MIT, where he won awards for creative mechanical designs. Combat again interrupted his education when he was asked to serve in the Korean War. Post-war, he returned to Boston to finish his mechanical engineering degree and rose quickly at Union Camp Corporation, becoming its Chief Technology Officer. His experience and languages, English, Russian, Polish, German and French, pulled him back to Europe, where he pursued graduate work at the University of Heidelberg, and formed a management consulting firm servicing the executive management of companies such as Robert Bosch, Krupp, Daimler Benz, Mannesman, Owens Illinois and Swissair. He was elected to several boards of Swiss-controlled corporations. Retiring at 40, the family moved from residences in Switzerland and Germany to California and then Nevada to live-out Larry’s childhood dream of cowboys and ranches. He purchased a ranch in Nevada where his four children will never forget the horses, chickens, ducks, a goat, pig and endless acres of fun in the Sierra Nevada. A Hawaii vacation led to a residence where he remained endlessly curious and desirous of making a positive impact. He developed and patenting numerous mechanical devices. His second retirement resulted from the invention of the BioCam bicycle. The bike was used in 1979 to produce the best ever finish (2nd) by an American rider at the two-day 750-mile Paris-Brest-Paris race. It broke time-trial records, was estimated by an Olympic cycling coach in a Sports Illustrated feature to provide a 10% efficiency improvement, and was chosen as part of an exhibit on innovation at the Smithsonian Institute. His Road Machine, an innovative fly-wheel bicycle trainer (now commonplace), was used by Greg LeMond to prepare for his Tour de France victories. LeMond’s company now sells a similar device. He continued inventing into his 80s, receiving multiple patents in the last few years of his life. His memory lives on with his wife Betsy of 57 years, and their children, Amy, Gregory, Stefanie, and Brian. A private family service will be held in San Diego’s beautiful San Luis Rey Old Mission. “To be absent in body is to be present with the Lord.”

Shogo served in the United States Army from 1948-1952 where he earned a Bronze Star during the Korean War. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing, hunting, and hiking.
