Hugh Prentice of Seattle, King Co., Washington

Fall 2004 and Revised 11 May 2011

Update of 11 May 2011: Hugh Prentice is #2 in our Winter 2004 article entitled Hugh Prentice of Scotland and Seattle, WA . That article now replaces this article.

1. Hugh Prentice was probably b. 3 May 1915 and d. Mar 1985, Seattle, King Co., WA (per wife's obit. and SSDI).

Hugh m. Anna Evelyn Aasten was b. 14 Apr 1918 in Seattle, WA and d. 28 Aug 2004 at the age of 86 at Olympic Care and Rehabilitation Center in Sequim, WA. Her obituary reads, in part, as follows:

    She grew up in Seattle in the Capitol Hill area of Madison Street and moved to Queen Anne and Thomas, where her parents owned the grocery store (now a post office). She graduated from Queen Anne High School. She was married in 1940 to Hugh Prentice, and lived at 13th and Denny for the next 64 years.

    She loved her job at J.C. Penney's for 25 years. When our father passed on in 1985, she had her thrifty shop at her homesite. Over the years, she became known as ``Queen Anne'' by most of the community on Capitol Hill. Wonderful friends and their pets often stopped by to visit as she sat on her porch and in her little shop.

    She is survived by one sister, Molly Aasten of Seattle; three daughters, Darlene Morgison of Port Angeles, Karen Prentice of Gainesville, Florida, and Sharen Schaefer of Newcastle, Washington; 17 grandchildren, 19 great grandkids and 3 great-great grandkids.

    The family gives special thanks and gratitude to Robert Schmidt for being there throughout the years, for keeping her yard properly maintained, running errands and getting her help when needed. A true friend and renter, he was like a son to our mother as they became very close. Thank you again, Robert, from the family.

    She was laid to rest at the Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery in Seattle. Always loved -- always remembered.

Children of Hugh and Anna:

  1. Darlene Prentice. She m. Mr. Morgison and in 2004 lived in Port Angeles, WA.
  2. Karen Prentice. In 2004 she lived in Gainesville, FL.
  3. Sharen Prentice. She m. Mr. Schaefer and in 2004 lived in Newcastle, WA,

Who are Hugh Prentice's Parents?

Although additional investigation is needed for confirmation, it seems likely that Hugh is Hugh McGregor Prentice, son of Robert and Cora Mae Prentice of Seattle, discussed in our Summer 2000 article about Hugh Prentice of Nova Scotia .
