We are all saddened by the recent passing of our friend and associate Bill Pfeifer. Bill was a tireless volunteer who meant a lot to Indivisible Skagit.
As the editor of this web site, he posted many items and will be greatly missed for his dedication and diligence.
Goodbye Bill and may you never have to be frustrated by technology again!
CATHERINE VERD CARTER
1953 – 2021
EDISON — Catherine Verd Carter died suddenly on July 27, 2021, at the age of 67. A beloved friend, Catherine was a force of nature, a political activist, a world traveler and citizen, and an idealistic troublemaker. She believed passionately in social, economic, and ecological justice and worked for that change throughout her life.
Catherine was born on September 17, 1953, in Wenatchee, WA, to Ann Trenholme Carter and Phillip Linwood Carter, Jr. Her family lived in Virginia, Washington, Illinois, and Massachusetts. She graduated from Concord Academy, Antioch University, and the School for International Training. Recently, she earned her MS in Forestry Management at the University of Washington.
Her curiosity took her around the world, which deeply affected her worldview. In the 1970s she returned to Washington State and lived in Seattle, Arlington, and finally Edison. She worked as an organizer for SEIU 1199, political campaign worker, community organizer, and public defense investigator. Catherine was also an artist, musician, EMT, carpenter, photographer, educator, genealogist, bus driver, house-and-pet-sitter, and more.
Our ardent community organizer Catherine would say, give your time or money for social change.
