A. Willene Hoverson, a loving wife, mother and grandmother passed away on August 14, 2013 at home in Anacortes.
Willene loved arts and crafts in many forms. She was especially skilled at pen and ink drawing, watercolor painting, sewing, and ceramic doll-making. Generous with her talents, she gave many of these beautiful creations to friends and relatives. She was quite a cook, and made holidays special with large meals complete with fruit pies. Her family home was situated on an acre lot planted to attract wildlife, and she enjoyed sighting visitors such as songbirds, quail, deer and occasionally porcupines. Often times her artistic projects were based on her love of these creatures. She loved little dogs, and her rat terrier, Rex, was her latest companion.
