Bari Willard, of Orcas, traveled off island March 24 for a funeral and medical appointments. She made a reservation for the 12:25 p.m. ferry from Orcas to Anacortes. She recalled arriving at the terminal at 11:47 a.m., but because the incoming ferry was unloading, she had to wait before turning across the street to get to the booth. She said she arrived at the booth at 11:58 a.m. just three minutes after the 30 minute requirement and was directed to the standby lane.

ObituaryAmy Lear: 1955 —2016

  • Mar 25, 2016 at 1:30AM

Amy Lear Feb. 3, 1955 - Mar 7, 2016 Amy's soul is alive and well…and will forever be. She now resides in the hearts of her life partner, Bo Turnage, her daughter Kate Fenley, and her sister Diane Lear Vargonick. She travels the universe, as she did here on earth, spreading love and peace and finding beauty in everything. Everyone who knew her…her dear friends and her treasured animals…were changed by her quirky uniqueness in an unforgettably positive and cherished way. She had roots in Edison New Jersey (her accent came through with humorous frequency). She was a graduate of Boston College, an art history major. Her vocation as a flight attendant for over three decades took her all over the world. She studied and taught yoga with passion and a contagious spirituality. She gave to her community at the Animal Shelter and the Islands Museum of Art. She was a giver…not a taker… to people, animals and nature. She was the embodiment of love. The peace that she spread is now the peace she will enjoy forever.
