Washington Normal School in Cheney. She met John Maurice Andrist on a
college geology field trip. They eloped to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, in
1929 and in 1930 moved to Santa Barbara, California, where he worked as
head cook in his uncle's up-scale cafeteria.

After their two sons (John Edwin and Charles Alexander) were born, they
moved back to Washington, deciding it was a better environment for
raising children. There they operated a small farm in the Cashmere
Valley. She worked in the fruit warehouses.

After their daughter (Marjorie Caroline) was born, they sold the farm
and bought Shipley's Cafe in Cashmere.
They operated the restaurant for 12 years in the 1950s and 60s. After
retiring, they traveled throughout the United States, wintering in Arizona.

In 1980, they returned to Cashmere, where Mr. Andrist died in 1985. Mrs.
Andrist moved to Omak in 1991 to live with her son, John Edwin Andrist,
former publisher of the Omak Chronicle newspaper. In 1993, she moved to

January 17, 1999, at the age of 88. She will be buried in the cemetary
