name

Cliff Bengston, biologist and hatchery manager with the Tulalip Tribes from 1976-2002, passed away peacefully at his home on Tulalip Bay on Aug. 9. He was born July 24, 1940, in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle. In 1951, his family purchased the Kamburger Farm and moved to Monroe. His father, Henry Emil Bengston, was a plumber as well as working the small farm. His mother, Myrtle Alice Leland Bengston, was a homemaker and helped with the bookkeeping.As young boys, Cliff and his brother, Ed, shared a paper route.
Cliff worked on the family farm milking cows, raising fryer chickens, and tending crops such as potatoes and raspberries. He also took jobs on other farms, tending pea vine harvesters, milking for dairies, and short stints pumping gas at the Mobil station and bucking hay in eastern Washington. He also played football, baseball and wrestled. After high school, Cliff tried logging, both near Monroe and in the northern California redwoods. He returned to Washington to work for Boeing, becoming a lead printer. He spent weekends hiking and rock climbing and tuning motorcycles for a racing team. He took a position as industrial photographer with the Applied Physics Lab at the University of Washington, working on top secret projects until it became a conflict with his leadership work with the peace movement during the Vietnam war. During the time he was at the Applied Physics Lab,
Cliff enrolled at UW in geology. To save money, he lived at Lake Joy in a rustic cabin without running water or electricity and commuted to the university on his motorcycle. He later moved into a house in the University District with other students who became lifelong friends. Cliff switched his major to fisheries, working with Dr. Richard Whitney doing baseline studies for the establishment of the North Cascades National Park. He conducted the first water quality and fisheries surveys in the North Cascades alpine lakes, hiking into remote areas during summers. He began a master’s program, leading the research team investigating the fisheries and environment of Grays Harbor Bay.
He began work with the Tulalip Tribes in 1976 as one of the first tribal biologists in the Boldt case area. He was manager of the Tulalip Tribes’ Bernie Kai-Kai Gobin Hatchery from its founding in 1982 until his retirement in 2002. He was made an honorary tribal member by the Tulalip Tribes in 2001. After his retirement he continued to work part time for the tribe as an adviser.
Cliff is survived by his wife, Kit Paulsen, sister Sandy Bloor, and brothers Ed and Don Bengston, as well as many nieces and nephews.
A graveside service was held at 10 a,m. Thursday, Aug. 18, at the Mission Beach Cemetery, Tulalip Bay.
Cards for Cliff’s wife and other family members may be sent to Tulalip Tribes, Natural Resources, c/o Helene Contraro, 6406 Marine Drive, Tulalip, WA 98271 or emailed to krawson@tulaliptribes-nsn.gov.
The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Cliff’s name to Hope Heart Institute.

George Raymond Schab, 72, of Monroe, WA, passed away peacefully at his home with his family by his side on November 1, 2010, following a short battle with cancer. George was born August 2, 1938 in Union Gap, WA to Raymond "Ramey" and Flora "June" Schab. He was preceded in death by his father and mother. Survivors include his three children, Robbie Schab and wife, Deana, of Monroe, Scott Schab and wife, Terri, of Snohomish, WA, Suzann Schab, of Monroe; three grandchildren, whom he loved with all of his heart, Amanda Schab, Mariah Schab and Robbie Schab Jr.; as well as his best friend, Becky Morgan. Survivors also include his brother, David Schab; and three sisters, Kitty (Schab) Bryant, Karen (Schab) Benson and Merrie (Schab) Ralph; as well as several nieces, nephews and extended family. He grew up in Park Place where he attended Monroe schools. After Graduating from Monroe High School in 1959 he worked numerous jobs and started his family. He settled in at the University of Washington and retired in 1990 after 30 years of service. He then began traveling both in and out of the country from Australia to Thailand to Mexico to the Yukon, just to name a few. He always shared thrilling stories with family and friends about his journeys and always did so with a smile on his face. George also enjoyed many other hobbies from hunting and fishing with his boys to gardening, raising his cows and rock hounding. He was also a great Artist and created amazing things such as stained-glass lamps, jewelry and ivory belt buckles. But owning his own business which included the buying, selling, trading and "blinding with brilliance" of antiques was always with him wherever he was. George was loved by many and had numerous friends that he cared for deeply. His huge, golden heart matched his sparkly blue eyes and he will be greatly missed and remembered forever. A celebration of his life will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 20, 2010, at Swiss Hall in Monroe. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/heraldnet/obituary.aspx?n=george-schab&pid=146525370#sthash.xdBjYmY9.dpuf

Paul Bennett came to teach in Monroe in 1936 when the district had two elementary schools and a high school. Shortly after he arrived the building now called Monroe Elementary School was built.
Originally beginning his teaching in music, Bennett later switched to teaching U.S. history and government classes. He was director of the band and has been credited with starting an excellent band program still maintained today. It was Bennett who laid the groundwork.
Paul Bennett interrupted his teaching for a stint in the Army Air Corps during WWII. He spent the war as a weather observer in Greenland.
Together with teacher Dick Gemmill, Bennett taught virtually all of the juniors and seniors in the district in the subjects of history and government. Students and teachers both appreciated Bennett's well organized teaching. The students rewarded Bennett with enthusiasm and attentive behavior in class. The teachers gave him their respect, admiration and friendship.
Bennett's subtle sense of humor and well informed lectures were cut short by illness in 1971 when he retired from Monroe High School. He was a member of the Monroe Congregational Church, the American Legion and a graduate of Eastern Washington College of Education at Cheney, WA. Bennett served in the Army Air Corp during WWII as a weather observer in Greenland.
He is survived by hi wife, Betty, his daughter, Suzanne (Donald) Dyer of Memphis TN., his grandchildren, Devin Lee and Dawn Cheree, his brother Philip A. Bennett of Spokane and his sister, Ellen (John) Fishback of Washougal, WA.

Al Borlin

Died December 5th 1976




Allan Borlin--one of this community's leading civic servants and sans peer as a vocational agriculture instructor and Future Farmers of America advisor--passed away Sunday morning, Dec. 5, 1976.
Mr. Borlin was born in Monroe on March 7, 1911. Man and boy, this valley was his home. He graduated from Monroe High School in 1930, earned his B.A. degree in agriculture education at Washington State College (now W.S.U.) in 1941.
In July of 1941, he married Dorothy Laura Eilert (she preceded him in death in 1961) of Eastern Washington and they made their home in Cheney, where he taught agriculture for four years.
Blessed with their daughter Nancy, they returned to Monroe in 1944 where his tenure began as a vocational agriculture instructor with Monroe Public Schools and advisor to the Monroe Future Farmers of America Chapter. Twin daughters, Kathleen and Carol, were born in 1946.
Mr. Borlin's career as a professional educator spanned 26 years in Monroe until his retirement in 1971. Upon that occasion the city declared an "Allan Borlin Day" at which time he was honored for his local, state and national accomplishments.
He was the recipient of honorary State and American farmer degrees, the latter during the 1953 National F.F.A. Convention in Kansas City.
Allan Borlin was always active in educational and community affairs, including 25 years as a director of the Evergreen State Fair and as a member of the Monroe Kiwanis Club. He served as a Monroe city councilman from 1964 to January 1973 when he was named pro-tem mayor for the duration of 1973. He was re-elected to the city council in 1974 and was serving with distinction as the head of the streets and parks committee at the time of his death. With the cooperation of many people, his love of flowers and lanscaping has given Monroe parks and parkways a state-wide reputation for beauty. Recently, Buck Island Park was renamed Al Borlin Park.
Surviving are his daughters Mrs. Gerald (Nancy) Fessenden, Mrs. Rick (Carol) Webber and Mrs. Lowell (Kathleen) Braaten, granddaughter Laura Braaten and numerous relatives.
