It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Educational Consultant Marlyn Doan. She has been a friend and collaborator with Woodbury Reports for many years. She will be missed. The following is the obituary published in the newspaper.

Passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 5, 2005. Her family and friends will miss her dearly. Marlyn was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 17, 1936, to Randall and Gladys Seaman. Marlyn met and married Dr. Allen Doan in 1959 at Ohio Wesleyan University. They moved to Seattle in 1961 and were involved in the Seattle Kodiak Club and Mountaineers. She raised three children and taught them to love the outdoors, music, and animals. In her spare time, she was a freelance writer and award-winning photographer for such magazines as Outdoor Life and Backpacker. She also authored the book Starting Small in the Wilderness. Her love of working with children and education led her to start the company, Educational Resources Inc. Her passion was to help children with their different needs and drew great satisfaction on seeing them succeed.

Marlyn is survived by her husband, Dr, Allen Doan, son, David Doan, daughter, Amy Doan Mansen (Kurt), daughter, Laura Wierleski (Gary), and grandchildren, Brandon, Zachary, Hanna, Benjamin, Alise and Bjarn.

A memorial service and reception were held on Saturday, January 15th, at 1:00 p.m., at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, NE 12th Street at 94th Avenue NE, Medina, WA. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marlyn's name to the Overlake Hospital foundation, Cardiac Unit.
