After graduating from high school she made her home and worked as a secretary for several businesses on the East Coast until moving to Skagit County in the late 1980’s.  She continued to work as a secretary, working for Skagit County in the Permit & Planning Department until her retirement in 2004.

Tish is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Stephen & Jonay Campbell; her daughter, Cynthia Reardon and her companion Scotty Edwards; grandson, Connor Campbell; sister, Suzanne Simpson; brother, Dennis Kraft and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Life Celebration will be held at a later date.  The family requests that contributions in Tish’s memory be made to S.P.O.T.  Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Lemley Chapel, Sedro-Woolley.

    Dearest Cindy and Steve, We recently became aware that your wonderful Mom passed away four years ago. We want to express our heartfelt sympathies to both of you. We met on a steam train excursion in 1984 and have many enjoyable train memories. Tish was a bridesmaid in our wedding, November 1986. We’ll forever remember Tish’s warm personality, vibrant red hair and bright smile.

    Although I know words offer small comfort in your hour of sorrow, I do wish to express my sincere sympathy on the loss of our beloved “Tish”. With deepest sympathy

    I am very sad to hear about Tish’s passing. She was a jubilant gal who could always light up a room. Much love to all her friends and family.

  • Lorna Haycox Parent

    Tish’s welcoming and open spirit made her an asset wherever she was, at work, at church, as a neighbor or traveling. She gave of herself easily and honestly. I loved her desire to see the world and will miss her beautiful smile.

    There aren’t words that can describe my sorrow in losing one of my dearest friends, your mother and sister. So many things to miss but I will always have the memories to help me. RIP my friend.
