Dorothy "Dottie" Haidal
Dorothy "Dottie" Haidal was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on May 1, 1943 and died peacefully at her sister's home in Sequim, Washington on August 23, 2010.
Dottie was a polio survivor who lived a full life. Her sense of humor brought much joy to all who knew her. Although her laughter gradually became more subdued over the past two years as she valiantly battled ALS, her sense of humor never wavered.
Growing up on the East Coast, in 1961 Dottie graduated from Edison High School in New Jersey. For the next 15 years she was employed as a private secretary for Johnson & Johnson in New Brunswick, NJ. One of her responsibilities was social director. She loved to tell the story of when planning a department holiday party, she made her mark when the highly-publicized Door Prize turned out to be an old door, badly in need of paint.
She married the late Edward Haidal in Warminster, PA on March 19, 1976. After visiting her sister and brother-in law, Peggy and Bob Kelly, they fell in love with the area and moved to Sequim in 1989. Her parents, the late Arch & Betty Drylie soon followed.
Dottie quickly embraced the Sequim community. She joined the Sequim Guild for Seattle Children's Hospital, of which she became treasurer. Her love for children spread into many facets in her life, including CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate for Foster Children). She was also treasurer for PEO Chapter IV, P.A., and a member of MAC - Museum & Arts Center. Dottie & Ed were Ditchwalkers supporting the Sequim Irrigation Festival and enjoyed RVing with a fun group of friends.
Dottie was supportive of anyone needing her help or tackling a committee project, but was always shy in accepting accolades. Her signature smile and twinkle in her eyes will be remembered by all who knew her kind spirit. She loved entertaining and her home was always welcoming to all. She enjoyed the Port Angeles Symphony and any restaurant within 50 miles. Her fellow SARC swimmers remember Dottie as a prankster of the "Bad Girls." Most recently, Dottie was practicing traditional African Djembe drumming rhythms. The faster they drummed, the bigger her smile became. When she became unable to attend, the group disbanded. Dottie was the driving force for many groups of friends - all of whom miss her very much.
Dottie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Mandy & Mark Jenson, and grandson Brandon; sister and brother-in-law, Peggy & Bob Kelly; brother John Scott Drylie, nephew Gerry Kelly; nieces Sara Kelly and Amanda & Jerrin Fiorini and their two sons, Sean and Brent. She is also survived by stepdaughters, Chris Glover and Denise Forbes and stepson, Stephen Haidal.
A private graveside memorial will be held at Dungeness Cemetery with Dr. Scott Koenigsaecker, Sr. Pastor, Sequim Community Church, officiating. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date for friends and family. Linde Family Funeral Services is in charge of arrangements.
Contributions in Dottie's memory may be made to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 E. 8th St., Port Angeles, WA 98362.
Jack Russell Cummings
Jackie Russell Cummings was born in Bristow, Oklahoma on August 1, 1924 to Ola Mae (Chisholm) and Roland Dale Cummings. As a boy, he delivered newspapers in Tulsa, Oklahoma and enjoyed playing baseball, football and wrestling. Growing up in a musical family, Jackie first showed talent on fiddle and mandolin, although guitar would become the musical love of his life.
At age 18, Jack enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War II and served in the 45th Division of the 7th Army as a member of the celebrated Oklahoma Thunderbirds. The Thunderbirds were made up mostly of Cherokee and Choctaw Native Americans who volunteered for service at the beginning of the war.
Jack served as Sergeant in Tunisia, North Africa and Italy as a radio operator in some of the earliest air-to-ground reconnaissance during wartime. The Thunderbirds landed in Gela Beach on the southern coast of Sicily, on the morning of July 10th, 1943, suffering heavy losses due to adverse weather and heavy enemy fire. These amphibious landings were critical to the success of the war, and set up the stage for later landings at Normandy. General George Patton,
commander of the 7th Army in Italy, described the Oklahoma Thunderbirds 45th Division as one of the finest, if not the finest infantry divisions in the history of modern warfare. The 45th participated in the liberation of Italy ending in Rome in June, 1944.*
Jack was honorably discharged in October, 1945 and was presented with the Distinguished Unit Badge, the European/African/Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and the Good Conduct Medal. He survived WW II with only the heel of his boot shot off, but suffered from post-traumatic syndrome from his war experiences for the rest of his life, as did many of his comrades.
After the war Jack lived in southern California where he met and married his love and wife of 60 years, Wanda Bee Shaw. They had four children and eventually settled on the Olympic Peninsula in 1961. The family built a house on 40 acres on Webb Hill (between Shelton and Union) using only hand tools, long before electricity and utilities were available in the area. One of the areas original homestead deeds from the early 1900s, this land has been home to three generations of the Cummings family.
Jack worked as a technical writer for Boeing in the 1960s, and retired from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. He survived both cancer and a heart attack, and enjoyed traveling around the country with Wanda for many years. They especially loved camping and hiking in high desert areas of the Southwest. They eventually settled in the Sequim area, enjoying life in the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains they both loved. Shortly after his 86th birthday, Jack died on August 22, 2010.
A lifelong and accomplished musician, Jack first performed with his father and sister Bettye in dance bands in Oklahoma. He later performed with western swing bands in the Los Angeles area, and shared his love of music with family and friends throughout his life. Toward the end of his life, Jack recorded a collection of many songs in the western swing, pop, and jazz genres as well as several original compositions.
Papa Jack is survived by his wife Wanda; three sons: Ronald and wife Pam, Victor and wife Cathie, and Daniel and wife Shawn; grandchildren Anna, Jennifer, Matthew, Joshua, Brianna, Sarah, Katy, and Jack; great-grandchildren Asaisha, Kaylin, Elijah, Janessa, Mackenzy, Zyler, Zaine, and Cadence; two sisters Jeanne, Bettye and partner JoAnn. Jack and Wandas daughter Peggy died of cancer in 2001.
At Jacks request, no formal services are planned. Memorial donations may be made to the Peggy Cummings Bolling Memorial Scholarship, which provides support for horsemanship studies for youth and adults. The mailing address is: Back Country Horsemen, PO Box 1504, Shelton WA 98584.
