In Memoriam Judy Sarkisian 8/24/2020  
Judy Ann Sarkisian of Vashon, Wash., died unexpectedly from natural causes Aug. 24, 2020, at her home in Ennis, Mont.

She was born Oct. 18, 1950, to Arthur and June (Kiendl) Sarkisian in Forest Hills, N.Y., where she attended P.S. 101 and Kew Forest School. She spent summers in Mattituck, N.Y., on the East End of Long Island. Judy attended Vermont College and received her registered nursing degree from the University of New England in Portland, Maine.

After living and working for a period of time in Vermont and Maine, Judy moved west to Seattle, Wash., in the late 1980s with her then-husband Gary Nathanson. She loved the area and its people, eventually building her forever home on Vashon Island, where she tilled the soil, set down roots and lived happily with her plants and animals.

Judy brought passion to all her endeavors. She exhibited a flair for the dramatic at a young age. She wrote and directed skits for her younger cousins to perform door-to-door to the bemusement of neighbors. She was a tomboy and a leader of children on wild goose chases through the streets and back alleys of Forest Hills Gardens. In high school, she landed plum roles in plays and Gilbert and Sullivan musicals, and excelled at athletics.

Whenever Judy entered a room, contagious laughter and merriment ensued. Her interests were reflective of her wit, curiosity and keen intelligence. She studied botany, zoology, gardening, nutrition, animal communication, primal psychology and spiritual healing and was in the process of completing her final year in a Feldenkrais Professional Training Program.

Judy was also an accomplished cook. When she wasn't busy working her magic in the kitchen, you could find her zip-lining through the jungles of Costa Rica, swimming with dolphins in Hawaii, whale-watching off Vancouver Island, exploring the caves and cenotes of Mexico or fly fishing on the Madison River.

Judy was the "magical glue" between immediate members of her family. She organized summer reunions on Long Island that involved great meals, annual pingpong tournaments, singing and skinny dipping. She brought family together for holiday gatherings, fishing trips in Montana, celebrations on Vashon Island, thrift store shopping, dumpster diving or anything else just for the hell of it.

She is survived by family members, brothers Corey Sarkisian and Murphy Smith, as well as first cousins Sally Bunce, Bill Kiendl, Kim Kiendl and Wendy Smithson and all of their children.

A celebration of Judy's life will be held at a later date. Those who wish to donate to one of the charities she supported may do so by mailing a check to The Judy Sarkisian Legacy Foundation, Schwab Charitable Fund, P.O. Box 628298, Orlando, FL 32862.
In Memoriam Chui Ly 9/29/2020  
Cathy Ly Phan aka Cathy Ly or Chui Man Ly
May 8, 1980-Sept 29, 2020

Cathy Ly Phan - beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, and cousin; cherished friend; trusted colleague and adored by so many - passed away on September 29, 2020, from complications relating to a brain aneurysm. She was 40 years old.

Cathy was born on May 8, 1980, and raised in Sacramento, California. Growing up, she and her siblings Tony, Johnny, and Heidi spent weekends and holidays helping their mom at Happy Garden Restaurant, a popular Chinese restaurant on Stockton Boulevard. She went to Elder Creek, Herman Leimbach, and Anna Kirchgater Elementary Schools, James Rutter Middle School, and graduated as one of the top 10 students from Florin High School in 1998, where she excelled in academics, athletics, and the arts. Among other activities, she was President of the Key Club, played soccer and ran cross country, and was elected homecoming princess her senior year.

Cathy attended the University of California, San Diego (2002) where she majored in Structural Engineering. She was an active member of Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity, and loved living in beautiful La Jolla. While in college, Cathy also studied abroad in Hong Kong (2003). She also received a Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Norwich University in 2010.

After college, Cathy moved back to Sacramento and worked for several years as a civil engineer at Mead & Hunt. She later took a job at Pacific Gas and Electric, where she worked successfully for 14 years and was promoted to Manager of Dams and Asset Management in 2020. As a civil engineer, she oversaw dam safety, compliance, construction, and maintenance for PG&E's hydro facilities throughout California. Always willing to contribute to her community and understanding the lack of diversity in the profession, Cathy was actively involved in a number of mentorship programs for women and people of color.

Cathy met the love of her life, her husband Eric, in high school, but only reconnected in Sacramento after college. It was not until a chance encounter at a party in Davis that their romantic relationship developed. They ignored everyone else at the party and talked the night away and started dating soon after.

In 2006, Cathy and Eric moved to the Bay Area, and they married in September 2008.

Cathy approached marriage and motherhood as she did all other things in life: with passion, kindness, and an unending supply of strength and love. She was a dedicated partner to Eric as they built a life and a family in San Francisco over the last 14 years. Raising her two children - Gwen (9) and Ethan (7) - was the greatest joy of her life. Cathy was always active and present in their lives, building community and being an active participant in their preschool, elementary school, and other activities.

Cathy's happiest times were spent with her friends and family. So many of her loved ones have fond memories of sharing a meal, camping, skiing, climbing, hiking, karaoke-ing, and more with Cathy - she had a zest for life and truly lived each day to the fullest. Her connections were deep and she always made an effort to visit her friends and family around the world - from Elk Grove to Redondo Beach and Southern California, London, West Lebanon, Australia, Colorado, San Diego, and more, Cathy traveled miles to spend time with loved ones.

Cathy is survived by Eric, Gwen, and Ethan; her mother Lisa Ung and father Bau Ly; brothers and sister Tony (Pam), Johnny (Lien), and Heidi; Eric's parents and siblings; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Cathy was preceded in death by her beloved grandmother Lin Su. We take great comfort in the fact that Cathy and her grandmother are reunited once again.

His first duty station was at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, for two years and while there he was deployed to serve in Korea from 1974 to 1975.

After six years in the Army, he chose to continue to serve his country in the U.S. Coast Guard where he accepted a direct commission in 1977. Chris stood his initial watch at CGAS Chicago located at Glenview Naval Air Station, Glenview, Illinois. From that Air Station he was deployed to Miami to take part in the Mariel Boatlift, rescuing Cuban refugees. While in Illinois his two sons, with the support, coaching, and encouragement of their father, began a spectacular life in youth ice hockey, speed skating, baseball and racing road bikes.

At his second watch in Mobile, AL, he was assigned to the Polar Operations Division as the Engineering Officer, and completed two deployments to the Arctic and two to the Antarctic. He continued encouraging his sons in various sports including running distance races with them and Cathy. Chris's third watch was at CGAS Borinquen, Puerto Rico, where he served as the Engineering Officer and his family explored the ocean as certified SCUBA divers and assisted with the development of youth soccer on base as well as supporting a local Baseball league off base.

Chris and his family then transferred to Coast Guard Headquarters and lived in Northern Virginia where his two sons graduated High School while also excelling in High School Athletics. Chris's son Keith graduated from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, one of the lesser-known service academies, and Corey graduated from Virginia Tech and its Division One baseball team with great success.

After living in Northern Virginia for five years Chris was then sent back to ATC Mobile for three years, and then on to the Aircraft Repair and Supply Center in Elizabeth City, NC, where he was the Chief of the Engineering Division. After that, Chris was sent to CGAS Cape Cod where he served for two years as the Executive Officer, and then finally to his last duty station at Coast Guard Headquarters where he was involved in the Coast Guard's Deepwater project.

After retiring from the Coast Guard, Chris and Cathy settled in Gainesville, VA, and Chris worked for Agusta Westland, Cineflex, General Dynamics, and also as a consultant to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, where he worked closely with the Director of the ITT unit of the Ministry of National Security and managed the migration of the analog 911 public safety system to a fully digital infrastructure.

While in Trinidad he also developed a love of Soca music. Chris was and still is an inspirational uncle to all his nieces and nephews. Chris and Cathy became extremely happy grandparents to Corey and his wife Chelsea's two children. Chris became a model railroad enthusiast, model ship builder, developed one of the most amazing Koi ponds that has ever existed, and also owned and hunted with his award winning German Short Haired Pointers.

His family was devastated to see how Glioblastoma stole his essence and abruptly ended his life after a nine-month fight with the disease. Chris is survived by his wife of 50 years, his two sons, Keith, Corey and his wife Chelsea, sister Carey (Gangitano), mother Marian (DiMarco). His father, Edward Snyder, precedes him in death.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 8213 Linton Hall Rd., Gainesville, VA 20155 on Saturday, September 19th, at 1:00 p.m., reception immediately following. The interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery.
