Miriam Patricia Menard, an active member of St. Augustine Catholic Church, died peacefully at home Feb. 14, 2018. She was born March 17, 1930, a fitting day for the Irish lass that she was. She was raised in Massachusetts but traveled extensively after she married the love of her life Jerry, a Navy man, who preceded her in death in 2015.
Miriam is survived by children David and Deborah Menard, Stephen Menard, Susie and Jay Timm, Mary Ann and Randy Duhrkopf, Chris and Lizzy Menard, and Peter and Lou Ann Menard; by grandchildren Ben Menard, Matt and Aaron Henry, Jesse, Luke and Meng Juan Timm, Joshua, Katherine and Megan Duhrkopf, Maggie and Will Menard, and Ryan and Madeline Menard; and by great-grandchildren Jack and Cooper Henry, Traiden and Brystal Neilson and Presley Henry.
A funeral mass will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 3, 2018, at St. Augustine Catholic Church with Rev. Paul Pluth, J.C.L. presiding. A private rite of committal will take place at Maple Leaf Cemetery.
The Menard family suggests donations can be made to Seattle Children’s Hospital, St. Jude’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., or the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation.
