“Marian Seymour Simmermacher passed away peacefully on November 21, 2008, with loving family at her side. She was an accomplished woman who enjoyed a full life for over 100 years. She radiated love, wisdom, and a sense humor to everyone in her presence. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, on May 4, 1908, Marian was the oldest daughter of Alexander and Margaret Seymour. The family immigrated to Vancouver, B.C. in 1908 and ten years later moved to Canton, Ohio, where she became a US citizen.

She received her BA in Drama and English from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, in 1930. She began her teaching career at McKinley High School in Canton, which was her alma mater.

She helped found the Players’ Guild of Canton where she was their first honorary life member. In 1937, she married Harry Allen Simmermacher and they came to Everett in 1944. She resumed her teaching career in 1952 and taught kindergarten at four schools in Everett, until she retired in 1973. She loved the little ones and her positive influence on children will always be remembered.

She was honored as an outstanding teacher and awarded the Golden Acorn of PTA. Other honoraries were Delta Sigma Rho, Theta Alpha Phi, and Kappa Delta Pi.She kept up her interest in drama by writing short plays for the local AAUW and made her friends the leading characters. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, American Association of University Women, Chapter ET of PEO, Delta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, Sno-Isle Retired Teachers, and Friendship Club.

Marian was preceded in death by her husband, Harry.

She is survived by a son, Ron; a daughter, Peggy (Larry) Iversen; and grandchildren, Brett (Elizabeth) Iversen, Paige (Jerod) Curley, and Brooke (Bryce) Buri. She was blessed with three great-grandchildren; Callie, Aubrey, and Reese. She has a sister-in-law, Jane, and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m., on Friday, December 5, 2008, at the First Presbyterian Church, 2936 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett, WA.
